Here is my fish tank.
I used to have a 4ft/240L tank, but about a year ago I upgraded to this 5ft/550L.
It looks a bit different now. I don't have most of the fish anymore and will be getting something called Discus in the next few weeks.

Here are some of the Discus I got last week.
They are still only about 1/3 size.
They will colour up a lot more as they get bigger.

There are two dogs over here. They are pets. They are ugly so I wont show you. Then there is another animal. But it isnt a pet. It just arrived here so I guess I am it's pet. How it seems anyway. Very wild at first and ripped the daylights out of the two ugly dogs. Still a bit skittish but hangs aropund me like youknowwhat stuck to a blanket. And my eyes itch something awful.

She rode into town without a name and I had to call her summin. This is Ketat.

Hi everyone

We got 4 new additions to our family. Our Sphynx cat gave birth to 4 beautiful kittens 10 days ago. 2 Boys and 2 Girls. They are just the cutest.

Here's some pictures and a video for you.

I took this video this morning. They are so cute and are growing so fast. Unbelievable to experience this and the whole family enjoys these little kittens so much, we can't stop admiring them.
