Like you Bunny I too like seeing animals as long as they are in open zoo with lots of space to run around.
I also luv going to visit the very big gardens that are open to the public.The ones that have hundreds of flowers and lovely fishponds with waterfalls.

The countryside or the coast.
Other than perhaps Ireland, where in the world would you find anywhere as green and beautiful as England ?

When younger I used to love bus tours of the highlands of Scotland That would be the greenest grass in contrast with the Purple Heather you will see anywhere in the world other than New Zealand of course, that is the nearest to the beauty of the highlands there is. I also like The Lake District but for another type of landscape. Bunnykins, I see you and your hubby have fish, what kind, my husband and I have Marine fish.

Bunnykins, we started out like you many many years ago with what you have as well. My husband calls them 'Pretty fish' If you are looking to Marines for their Colour, might I suggest a tank of Malawi Cichlids? The only difference between freshwater fish and Malawi's is, the water has to be hard water, but you can buy stuff to harden the water. Malawi's are lovely fish and come in many colours, Blue, Red, Green and Yellow. We had them for years Bunnykins. From that we progressed to Marines. Joe does the technical stuff like making up the salt water and it has to be checked out every three Months or so and you have to top up the tank every couple of weeks because salt water evaporates. The fish themselves are costly, depending on what you want in the tank and like tropical you have to have fish that will live with one another. We have 2 Yellow Tangs, 5 Blue Damselfish,  4 Pyjama Cardinals, 1 Majestic Angelfish
1 Flame Angelfish, 1 Longnosed  Hawkfish, 1Puffer fish, 1 Foxfaced Rabbit Fish, 1 Firefish. They are easy to feed as well but they are costly, Most of ours cost between £25 and £50 each but the Rabbit fish was £100 (he is big) and the Flame Angelfish was £85 It can be quite expensive Bunnykins setting it all up. Our tank is 5 feet by 2 feet by 2 feet. Joe is thinking of adding more fish (about 5 more)

Thank you so much for all of the information sabbi ..sounds much easier than i thought ..for some reason i thought it would need checking daily..mind i dont do the technical side i look at them and leave the rest to ..hubby as thinking about the Malawi fish but think 120litres isnt big enough ..maybe you or your husband can advise on that ..you have some beautiful fish in your tank i bet it looks amazing..

Bunnykins, my hubby says he would not have Malawi's in a tank less than 3ft long x 2ft x 2ft he says that the Malawi's need that space to grow. We used to have and entertaining time watching them poke there heads out of spaces in the rocks to see who was around. Oh you need rock work rather than plants for Malawi's to make their home, and they guard it well. When you introduce a new fish to an established tank, it is always best to move the rockwork around a wee bit because they are all so busy looking for new homes they don't annoy any new fish you put in and by the time they Do notice the new ones, they think they have always been there. Yes Malawi's are lovely colours as well Bunnykins and I would have again anytime, unfortunately we live so far north that we have to get our fish brought up by a friend who lives in Inverness, when he is coming up to visit family he phones Joe a couple of days before and Joe phones the Pet shop down there to see what they have, once picked he phones his friend and tells hit to pick them up for him. We only have a Pets At Home shop up here and they only sell Pretty Fish and a few Malawi's but No Marines, they won't even take an order for them. Yes it is quite difficult up here. You would love the Malawi's Bunnykins, they are very entertaining. Let me know how you get on if you do get them or Marines, Joe will help any way he can. :hugbun:

I always enjoyed going to Oxford to see my sister there. Sometimes, we'd go to the local museums; other times, we'd visit the university gardens.

Now that she's graduated, though, it's something I never have any reason to do any more :( .
