The Aquapod

My goal is to out-do myself every year on Angry Husband’s Father’s Day gift. Last year, I did a photo montage with Angry Toddler. I got the idea from one of my many mommy forums. It had five photographs, each with a picture of Angry Toddler holding a letter, spelling out D-A-D-D-Y. I was quite precious. I look at it every day when I walk by our bedroom door.

Angry Husband has been bugging me for a very long time about getting an aquarium. Heck, what the hell do I know about fish and aquariums. I had a goldfish once, it came from the Fair, and lived like 3 years. Angry Husband wants one of those 150-gallon huge-o things. All I cna imagine is Angry Toddler, getting into it, and 150 gallons of saltwater on a our distressed-highly-expensive, wood floors. You get the picture. If you know my child, you know what I mean.

So my friend Kim, tells me a couple of weeks ago, she got this 6-gallon Nano Pod aquarium thingy. She says that she wants to raise seahorses. So she shows me this aquarium-fish tank thing online.

I had a moment…

Oh, this is what I could get Angry Husband for Father’s Day. An itty-bitty practice/starter aquarium. Perfect!!!!

So I go and buy this AquaPod, all 12 gallons of it. Kim said I should go bigger than the 6-gallon she bought. I go to my local fish guy.

I posted a photo above of what the final result looks like. No, this is not our tank.

Angry Husband loved the tank.

We are now in the process of letting the tank cure. It has live rock, live sand, and salt water in it. No fish, no coral, no crabs….

I hope this works for us. I don’t want to sit and watch all our little fishies die. That would be soo traumatic for Angry Toddler and I. Poor Angry Toddler keeps asking everyday, “Where’s the fish?”.
