I went to PETCO because well they are PETCO! I needed an aquarium because I purchased two turtles for my daughter and since they live like forever.. they needed a home, right? Wait, I’m already off course. It started with the tank.. yes, and rock.. and filter.. and well I stopped there because this was really adding up! I’m sure I could buy this other stuff online “cheaper“, right? WRONG! I ended up at the PETCO website! AND they had this Giveaway… might as well enter as I shop, right? So yes, I went back and purchased what I needed knowing they did in fact have everything I needed..
I added this part a day later because I had a brain fart and forgot the most important part of the story! When we moved the year before I had to leave my 55 gallon tank behind. It was both a labor and time saving decision.. besides my son and DIL really liked it. It was the first time in over 15 years I would not have an aquarium. We are renovating this house so every dollar coming in is already planned for. It was to be a long time before I could have an aquarium. Boy did I miss it! I’d been looking at aquariums for months dreaming of when I could get one again!
On February 10th I received the email that I was the WINNER.. on April 14th they delivered the most de-lish-ous aquarium you have EVER seen. There have been seriously dozens of phone calls and emails back and forth and today I got the first shipment of fish and plants. Did I mention I adore plants?
There will be two more shipments of fish and plants.. here is the PHOTO Montage of day one of shipments.. I don’t know what Lola is complaining about.. just cuz I’m “happy dancing” about something other than her, ya think?
