The are respectful. Also not allowed to sit beer on top of the tank. Trust me they are watched. It being a private club we know the members. As for a discount yes I could but I don't drink so its unnecessary. Add to the fact I dont go anymore anyhow, unless I am caring for the tank.

Before or after working hours? What about a water accident, oops?

Just a couple thoughts. Good luck.

Haha, did you make him set it up exactly to your standards? Also what size is the tank?

welok The filter was cycled in my 55s. The rocks and tank weren't, but all the bacteria needed is already in the filter.

Minion is one of my co-workers, I'm his boss so I call him Minion, which is his official title. Lol

New tank at the work office

Got permission to put up a tank at work, and since I am not allowed to set one up until mid-October due to a promise, I made Minion do it, much to his dismay. Anyway, one of my other co-workers was going fishing at lunch, so I went with him: he fished (not even a nibble), I caught (using a bucket and a minnow trap). 4 Large Mouth Bass (only 2 in the 10 gallon tank, and will get moved home into the 75 once they get a little bigger), a Crawdad, and a bunch of food-sized minnows later, I have a stocked tank!!!


And since we all love pictures:

Full pic, with the minnows schooling in the top of the front right corner:


The photo friendly bass:


The bass again, but with the crawdad on the far left:
