Cliche` ...

   Ok ... so I goofed and posted my cliche` entry a week early, that gives me an excuse to post a new one today ... ha!

     Although I wanted to use one of Mort's suggestions, I could not find a horse to lead to water or a chicken that would consent to loosing his head and as for kicking the bucket ... the only buckets around here this week were "buckets of rain" so I opted for ...

   Something fishy's going on here!

     I've been staying at my sister's house this week while she is camping in the key's in the rain. The beauties in the photo above are just a few of the many African Cichlids that I am tending while she is away. I won't go into how this is a hobby gone wild, I won't tell you how many fish she has now, or mention how many tanks it takes to keep them, I will not use the word obsession, I'll just say that last year she turned 40 ... enough said, right?

Cool! I've always wanted a salt water fish tank filled with colorful tropical fish. I understand they are hard to keep, but oh so cool to look at.

Hi Coy :)

What a cute couple of fishies! :) I have been enjoying seeing the animals everybody has been using for their entries. I haven't see any fish yet, so this is great! Cool!

Always, Carly :)

One of my first thoughts was the cliche of 'you can't lead a horse to water' - something I remember my dad saying.  But, that didn't work for me either.  The fishy is a very good interpretation! :-)

I have the perfect fish tank.  Marine Aquariam 2.  No dead fishies, no fishies eating fishies, no funny smells, no fish sitters, perrrrfect.  Our cat ignores it even though it looks very realistic.  A great screen saver.  But... we doesn't have any crunchable ciclids precious.

That cichlid is so pretty that it's almost enough to get me started owning tropical fish again--but only almost! - Karen
