the crown tail
I spent this past Sunday searching the North Austin big box pet stores hunting down a new fish as well as a wall-hanging betta bowl. I arrived at home minus a wall-hanging bowl and plus one crown tail betta fish. I picked up a generic plastic contained for him, too, which is now filled with decorative white glass pieces. “A Betta named Sue” is now thriving; however, I have yet to get him on a regular eating schedule.
Sig also purchased a golden dojo loach for his freshwater fish tank. It resembles an eel in its movement and looks long and slender. Domesticated loaches are particularly know for erratic behavior when the barometric pressure drops, and this fish is no exception.
Melbourne, Australia has become an increasingly popular tourist destination for many Americans. Because it is part of the Anglosphere, it is ideal for the lack of a language barrier that many American face when traveling out of the country. It is located on the Southeast corner of Australia, straddling the Yarra River. Because the exchange rate to the Australian dollar favors Americans, it would be easy to find cheap Melbourne accommodations.
Melbourne is known for having a diverse culture, with over 200 countries represented in it’s population. It is home to Australia’s oldest ballet school in St. Kilda, an inner city suburb of Melbourne. It would be beneficial as a tourist to get a hotel in Melbourne close to the St. Kilda district because of its access to beaches and vibrant music scene.
Melbourne is known as the “Sporting Capital of Australia.” It is where Australian rules football originated, and five games are played per week. Melbourne is also famous for it’s thriving nightlife, culinary arts, and theater. Accommodations in Melbourne are affordable, which is all the more incentive to visit.
