Neon Tetras Added to Our Geek Aquarium

IMG_0899
Four of the RustyBrick elite have been braving out the main entrance of our Rockland office for years. This windowless area has been mistaken as an region for secretaries (we don’t have any), a frequent location of walk-in photocopier salesman (we don’t do photocopies), and snarky comments from fellow colleagues while they are on the way to the bathroom. Besides all of those goodies, these folk are the only ones without a nice view of the beautiful woods outside. They needed something and that something was a 500-gallon salt-water aquarium.
 
Months later, we settled on a 15-gallon fresh-water fish tank. There were a few reasons for the change in plans:
  1. we need to be able to move the tank in case we outgrow our office and need to move
  2. we tested the water temperature during the hot summer months and it was too risky to put expensive salt-water fish in there over the weekends
  3. saltwater needs a lot of water preparation that is difficult to do in a small office without it’s own water line. The fish, 6 Neon Tetras, were finally added to the aquarium today 
     
Hopefully these little schooling creatures will inspire the four RBer’s and any passers-by whom struggled for years without any windows in this space. We have been working out the logistics of adding Lego décor to the tank. Keep an eye out for a follow-up post regarding that.  If anyone has any ideas, please leave them in the comments section.
