  1. The short answer to your question is that I honestly don't know. Hopefully, someone with greater expertise will come along and answer. However, I feed my fish FROZEN brine shrimp. I believe the idea is that they are protein rich and both frozen brine shrimp and frozen bloodworms can fed to goldfish and part of their diet...which should also include fresh veggies/fruits and a pellet type food for balanced nutrition. If you "sun dry" the shrimp does that degrade the nutrients otherwise obtained from frozen brine shrimp???
  2. I can't take credit for that...kids named them...although I had veto rights
  3. Just wanted to pop in and introduce our family's newest pets...Rufus and Goldie. My children have been asking to get our tank set up for awhile now, and I finally gave in. We had fancies several years ago but took about a 5 year hiatus when our youngest came along. The tank is a simple 29 gallon with 2 Aquaclear 50's on back. No real plants for me...as I have a "brown" thumb. So please don't tease about my fake plants. The fish seem to be adjusting. Goldie (the fantail) seemed to be the alpha of the tank until today. Now Rufus (Black Moor) is chasing her all around, and I'm not sure if we have mating behavior or what?!? I'm doing daily w/c and praying for quick tank cycling. Good news is that my 12 yo is interested in helping.
  4. Just wanted to say hi to everyone. I haven't been here in a few years. I haven't had a tank set up for the last 5 years or so, and now my 6 year old daughter is begging me to start it back up. I had 2 fancies before that earned me a breeder's medal (LOL)...but I consider myself a total newbie in this hobby. I am trying to brush up on my skills by reading as much as I can, and I saw that the board needs more subscribers and donations...planning to help in that area as much as I can. Hope you have all been well. I have no idea how to navigate this new platform. Hopefully, I can find the old LOTP? Or Subscribers forum...and I've got to remember all of the keyboard shortcuts for the emojis.
  5. Veeery comfy! One hip has been bothering me from some unplanned running over the weekend, and it didn't hurt on this mattress! Slept about like normal as far a night time waking, just way more comfortable. A little hot this morning though... Should be nice in the winter? Uh oh, husband says Too soft. Hopefully he will come to love it and I won't have to return it! But I really love it. Sent using Tapatalk My hip is killing me too I wonder if a new bed would help I'm glad you're happy with it Do you sleep on your side? If you keep a pillow between your knees that can help some. I sleep so weird, on my stomach with legs all over the place and I worry that it's going to damage my knees eventually. I've been getting PT, she recently told me to get a body pillow for 1) to prevent from sleeping on my belly and 2) when on my back to slip under my knees and 3) put between my knees when on side. I like it a lot but it's really hot How's your hip doing? Last July I started having hip pain out of the blue…no injury. It went on for months unit l I couldn't stand it. Saw an orthopedic surgeon friend, and I agreed to a steroid injection…then I did 6 weeks of PT. It really helped. No pain. Although I can still tell it's not totally perfect…I usually only notice that when I'm exercising. I like the body pillow too! The body pillow was what made us move from a queen bed to a king!! My husband felt like he was sleeping with another person in between us. :rofl
  6. It felt like it went by really fast. I did enjoy it a lot! My boys (5 and 8) saw it with my Mom and LOVED it! Now the younger one is begging me to keep buying Honey Nut Cheerios because he wants to collect all of the SLOP toys in the boxes. I guess that really does work to sell cereal.
  7. Helloooooo! So….I got an email about a raffle…
  8. We didn't but we should. Actually I think we might name him Jimmy. I was thinking Jimmy Garopollo, Tom Brady's insanely hot backup quarterback. https://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images;_ylt=A0LEVxOEOkNWipYANR1XNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTEyZThuaG0yBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDQTAyMDFfMQRzZWMDc2M-?p=Jimmy+Garoppolo&fr=yfp-t-901-s Colin thought I meant Harbaugh, Michigan's new football coach. Yeah, Harbaugh, we'll go with that. What, is that guy ,the Property Brother's little brother?! Love the new little guy!! Impulse shopping is the best!!
  9. That is really interesting….and i thought it was due to the sun exposure. Always learning….
  10. What, what, what??? A Mom's raffle! I'm in! At the moment, I've got one recovering from a tonsillectomy, another with Hand Foot & Mouth (that he calls…head, hand, and toe ), and a sweet but fussy 5 month old. and all at the same time!
  11. LOVE this!!!! I miss Seinfeld so much! Guess I could just watch re-runs.
