Today I am bringing my water garden indoors for the winter.
At first, I thought I could keep it out there, since it is pretty well-sheltered from the elements and I had some heaters going on, but while taking my fish's comfort into consideration I forgot to do the same for MY OWN comfort!!!
It was SUPER cold these past few mornings as I went outside to feed the fish.. and when my hands got wet from cleaning the tank and the WIND started blowing, I decided it was time to invest in an indoor tank for the winter.
24 hours and $400 later, and I am in the midst of cycling a 40 gallon tank which looks amazing on a new stand in my living room :)
I feel like having the fishies indoors will also decrease my anxiety and allow me to sleep better.... knowing that a power outage or rambunctious hooligan will not come along and kill my friends.
I love watching them swim around ;) so peaceful.
