Fish Love II

Tonight’s news:

1) My photos have now been uploading to Streamload for 24 hours. Will it ever end??

2) We transferred Bert and Ernie to their new home this evening, after the pet shop finally got some test strips in so we could check the new water. Now, I know I am bound to think this because they are our fish, but I have never seen them look so happy. We put them into the tank and straight away Ernie was off exploring all the nooks and crannys. Bert looked stunned for a while, and seemed strangely obsessed with his own reflection, but after 10 minutes he was swimming around like crazy too. They’ve been dancing in and out of the filter stream, chasing each other round the tank and generally looking like a pair of drunken fools out on the town. Aw, bless :-)

3) Steve forwarded this to me from the BBC news site, where scientists are implanting radio chips in fish to control where they go, and are planning to use sharks as, (wait for it…) spies:

I am utterly mortified by this. Am I the only one that thinks this is outrageous?? In an activist-like moment very unlike the usual me, I contacted Greenpeace, WWF and PETA and forwarded them the link. Has the world gone mad???

  1. I have to admit, I did mentally check whether it was April Fool’s day the first time I read it.

    I didn’t know about the US Navy and their dolphins – terrible! Something else for me to be outraged at 🙂
