Small Animals

For awhile I have had two fish tanks. One 10 gallon that housed my angelfish that I got from my friend, Krista, over 2 years ago and a 30 gallon that most recently housed my Oscar. A few weeks ago my Oscar died and I moved the angelfish to the bigger tank. Now I’m debating on what type of pet to get to put in the 10 gallon tank.

I’m sort of over fish so I figured I would go with some small animal. I considered aquatic turtles, mice, a snake, and finally decided to go with rats. About 12 years ago I had two rats, Lenny and Squiggy (i got the names from two male character friends on the old show Laverne and Shirley). I really liked my rats, so I figured it would be fun to have two more. I decided to go with Hairless Fancy Rats, like the picture. I think I will get two girls this time. I will probably name them Laverne and Shirley just to carry on the tradition. 🙂
