  1. Chris here... MJ, They are all stunning!!!!
  2. Chris here... Thanks Dawn.... He is pretty cute for a round guy...
  3. Chris here... I'm running 2 AC70's on my 40 gallon as well... But I need the extra filtration because I'm overstocked...
  4. Chris here... Hindenburg today... July 2017...

  9. Hi Goldiegirl, Chris here... As far as colors Nautilus is dark orange, yellow and white... I originally pick this one out because when his markings looked like the markings on a cow... LOL!!! I thought he was unique in that way... He was pretty much yellow and white, now the dark orange is more prominent but the white and yellow stand out nicely against the orang... Thanks for your kind comments...
  10. Chris here.... I am truly amazed at the growth of this little guy... Nautilus's hump is really starting develop nicely.... At least I think so... Just over a year old... Thank you Allie for such a cutie
  11. Chris here... Thanks Lisa!!! Putting this in the note book!!! In case of recurring brain damage... Hay DawnMichele, yes... Brain damage is a recurring thing for me... my poor little brain tends to fall out my head and roll around on the floor till I can catch it and stuff it back in....
  12. Chris here... I'm pleased to report that there has not been anymore poop monster sightings... And the hubby was really happy to be relieved of fish duty when I finally came home... He says that he is now the official "Fish Whisperer" in the house!!! At that pronouncement, Mr. Potato Head responded with a large tail splash while the hubby was next to the tank... Gotta love a guy that battles poop monsters!
  13. Chris here.... I have been using the search engine to find the posting regarding quarantine, Prazi Pro and salt issues... I plead brain damage... So I'll ask... 1) For quarantine: raise temp to 80 degrees and Salt gradually raised to 3%. 1 week? 2 weeks? 2) Prazi Pro: No Salt? 5 or 7 rounds? Raise Temp to 80 or leave at 75 ish? I have two juvenile orandas that I have adopted... One has pronounced swimming challenges... and the other has be come it's very best friend... very supportive to the swim challenged one... I'm hoping to provide a home that they can thrive in... both are in a low QT tub and will finish week one of salt tomorrow... Thanks so much!!!
  14. Chris here... well the rain will be leaving tomorrow... I was able to collect about 6 gallons of rain water.... I have a new fish coming on Wednesday... So I set up a QT tub at about 70% tap and 30% rain... the result of the blend is PH 8, Ammonia .25, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 5.... I double dosed with prime and plan to add purigen to the filter and retest tomorrow... I'm hoping that that will be a good start for the QT while our city water has huge run off issues... the tap is still testing at PH 8, Ammonia .50, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 10... yuk!!! I have about 4 gallons of rain water ? remaining for my 40 gal for a partial WC this week... I may have to purchase water on temp basis until the city's water settles back down... if so what is the best option??? Dang... I really hate water issues.... Thanks for your help!!!
  15. Chris here... I said they were little ones!!! you naughty girl!!!
  16. Chris here... Buckets are out.. Trying to catch the rain.... The hubby thinks I'm nuts as usual.... He says is is the "Fish Whisperer" you know... Based on is wonder care of them, when I was 2 month away of a family emergency... Which is most likely very true... But that doesn't include the poop monster emergency he had... And I didn't have the to remind him of it....
  17. Chris here... The balls have arrived... Dawn Michele... You would be sorely disappointed in size... the largest seems to be about 1/2 inch in. Diameter... The smallest, about 1/4 inch... But there's lots in the "very" little bag... Hopefully they are mighty!!!

  19. Chris here... Shakaho, great idea... we will get more rain tomorrow... I'll put all my buckets out and see how much I can catch... we are supposed to to get 3 back to back storms with lots rain... I added a bag of purigen at the last water change on the16th hoping that it would assist in keeping the nitrates check... I think it has helped. This mornings test I'd at PH 8.0, Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 5... So no WC today!!!! I fully expected to be up to my arm pits doing another WC today... YAY!!!!!
