Takadanobaba Samba Festival

My little neck of Tokyo put on a small samba festival today. It was a good time, but I'm glad it only ran from 3pm to 6pm. Our building sits right on the main street, and even with the windows closed it was really loud.
Other than that it was a quiet day at home. I also bought some goldfish for my fishtank recently. It's a small 6 gallon/23L tank, so I only bought six fish (neon tetras and some similar species) and three tiny shrimp. I need more plants in the tank now, so the fish have some place to hide. They seem rather nervous. It also looks like one of my shrimp is laying eggs!

A fun addition to a fishtank (if the fish are not the aggressive sort) is a newt. They don't really need a lot of space.

Do you still have the same email address? Mine is still the same:

Hey Justin,

A newt, eh? You always did have a soft spot for amphibians, didn't you? That would be cool. Do you have a lot of experience keeping a fish tank?

One of my shrimp seems to have molted since last night. No sign of hatching eggs yet. The shrimp are almost more interesting than the fish.

I nearly bought four fugu, because they are interesting to watch, but they can't coexist with other species.
