Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Cherry Shrimps my latest pets!


Cherry Shrimps & Their lil tank home

Okay my sea monkeys has all gone to the sea monkey heaven. Granted they don't live long and my bf forbids me to keep sea monkeys coz he thinks it's a waste of time and what the heck is sea monkeys right? I still lurve sea monkeys! and I also loooveee hamsters! but I can't keep them in the condo so my latest pet craze hobby is keeping cherry shrimp! Thanks to Jean who told me about it and I have been following her cherry shrimp stories on facebook, one day Jean brought me to the aquarium pet store and I bought my first cherry shrimps. Well at first I bought 4 and one died on the way home, 1 died the next morning in the tank leaving behind 2 cherry shrimps. Few days after my bf took me to Pudu, KL again to get more cherry shrimps. I bought 6 more from a different shop but they all died the next day again. The first two shrimps has been surviving up till now, it's been almost a month now *yes!*

I found out:
  • that Cherry Shrimps loves to eat the aquatic plants!
  • Cherry Shrimps needs freshwater and not saltwater
  • Cherry Shrimps are orange in color and tiny fellas
  • the female Cherry shrimp is bigger than male and has ovaries behind her head
  • one small tank like mine can only keep 2 or 3 cherry shrimps (oxygen)
  • put a aquatic plant in the tank for them to eat and for oxygen
  • top up water every week
  • remove any parasites growing in the tank! they come with the plant !! eee...
 Cherry Shrimps are low in maintenance but they're sensitive aquatic creatures! (temperature/movements/water ph level). Once you have the perfect tank u can actually just leave them be. They eat the plants and spend their day swimming around and yes eating non-stop.
