I moved to my new studio today, well mostly, I still have to move the tv and fish tanks, I need help with the heavy lifting for that. So hopefully that will be done tomorrow.
I am so excited to have a walk in closet! !!!
Oh and my nano tank arrived!
My butterfly from GC and the HUGE oranda and pearlscale from Rain Garden arrived about fifteen minutes ago. They are floating in their QT tanks at the moment. I can't wait to release them and get a really good look at them.
I'm sitting on my bed looking around my room this morning no wait its afternoon already, how is it already 3 pm? Anyway I had a spot picked out for my 75 gallon tank and after measuring this morning I think there is not quite enough space between the bed and the tank space to make it easy to do tank maintenance.
So I am looking around trying to figure out if there is a better way to rearrange my stuff to make room for it. I have a lot of stuff that is just clutter. I come from a family of
Since I'm doing daily almost 90% changes on their tank anyway, I found a better spot for it and moved them. Now I can see them from my bed while I'm working or watching tv or posting on Koko's. It's so cool! I can see all my fishies from bed except for Norma Jean who is in the 10 gal QT in the bathroom.
Not only do I enjoy watching them, but my pitt mix puppy also loves to watch them. She is so cute laying on the bed cocking her head back and forth while watching them swim. My boxer on t
I gave the dumb woman driving the Fedex truck an earful, she had the box upside down, even though there are UP arrows on it and it says LIVE FISH on the side. She was an idiot, even after I told her she was like oh...
At any rate, fish is in good shape, she's adorable, she is a white red cap oranda about 3" and she has red around her lips like she's wearing lipstick. At the moment she is floating in the QT tank in her bag. Can't wait to turn her loose in a little bit and get a good look at
Well I was just being paranoid, Acheron is fine, he does have one telescope that is larger than the other, but I looked at the photos I had of him from before I got him and it's the same. I also got to examine it really well this morning and it seems like it's fine, don't see any damage. It's hard to see his pupil on that side because his eye is black right around the eye. I took a short video clip of him this morning and will try to post it later.
I went and picked up my 75 gallon used tank
All along I have wanted to move the veils into the bigger tank with Gastone, but I have been afraid he would be too much of a barge So tonight water temps were the same in both tanks, and water chemistry was a close match. I decided to go for it. I moved the veils and their filters to the 59 gal tank with Gastone. I put Fifi in as well. They are all getting along well, the biggest worry I have right now though is that Gastone is too interested in Victoria and he is going to wear her out
Fedex was not kind to my fish from RG today. The Black and Orange Telescope is doing fine his bag was intact, but the Calico didn't make it. She was barely alive when she arrived, and I did what I could to save her, which wasn't much, but she died within about half an hour of being delivered. I called Steve to see if there was anything I could do besides what I already was, but he said it was all I could do and really I knew when I first saw her that she was not going to make it. Steve i
Ok it was bound to happen eventually, I am obcessed with my fishies and I love the forum, so it was just a matter of time before I started a blog.
I have had my veils Victoria and Valentino for almost two months and knock on wood their tank seems to be cycled.
Fifi and Gastone have been with me since about November 4th, and their tanks are probably about half way through their cycles.
Tonight I got a good look at the backside of Fif and I think I may have made a mistake when attempting t
