    Meet The Fish...

    I'm at that age where you can have honeymoon reenactments. Go here and eat this and stay there and drink some of this and then blah blah blah.... After a number of these you kind of get the hang of it LOL I have to admit that I live about 2,000 miles closer to the Ocean than you do so that...

    Slowly Upgrading 55 To 75 Gallon

    I have not gone swimming in the ocean for many many years, because my eyesight was so poor that without my glasses I could never find the shore, and once I did find the shore I couldn't find my wife. I may try it again some day now that my eyes have been repaired. They didn't guarantee the...

    Thanks Jen. Congratulations on the honeymoon. Everybody got a water change yesterday and Felix got two. Today I think I'll just goof off and go shopping at the pet store.

    Congratulations on the honeymoon and on Surviving So Cal. It's a bonus when you come home and you find that all your fish are not dead. ;) I'd like to get rid of some of my aquarium ornaments but the problem is I've got children and grandchildren buying these things as presents. I've been...

    Felix has been eating live mealworms and seems to like those more than anything. I think I will be treating his tank for at least one more week for about three treatments. My main brackish aquarium is in a spot where it gets a fair amount of light plus I put a grow light on it. All the fake...

    Felix seems to be recovering somewhat and he is eating but not as well as I would hope. Perhaps repeated treatments with praziquantel will eventually kill off the eggs and worms in what ever forms, and keep me from having to remove everything from his Aquarium. I am changing water, siphoning...

    Felix seems to be eating much better today. I took one of the algae covered plants out of my brackish tank and stuck it in the sump for the fry, and they have been feasting on it all day. I still have 8 aquariums sitting in my garage. I haven't yet found the motivation to sell them.

    Felix still has worms and is not eating well. Gave him a big water change yesterday and a dose of prazipro. I put it in his tank before I filled the water so it was 50% low, and as I poured the stuff in his tank he swam right into it. It was less than an hour later that he had a bowel movement...

    The new sump now has two service drains and an unthrottled emergency drain in the middle of 3.

    The Molly and guppy fry are doing quite well but they get lost in that 40 gallon tank. They eat a lot and they will fill it up soon enough.

    The photographs are very nice Jen. I'm not growing a whole lot right now except the pothos and algae.

    Meet The Fish...

    Today I moved all of the fry into the new sump and drained the 16 gallon tank. I moved it out to the garage and I put zed's tank in the same position. I also added a third drain to the brackish tank because I did not have an adequate emergency drain on this setup. All the mollies and Guppies...

    Meet The Fish...

    Well I have set up my new 40-gallon brackish sump under the 55 gallon brackish tank. There is a lot of extra water now and I have put all of the large mollies in there except for the Giant breeding pair. Well I don't know if they're officially giant mollies but they are about 4.5 in long and...

    I am afraid that mr. Fancy Pants the jewel Tetra could not outrun Photon, and was evidently consumed. I guess nothing's going to outrun a fish named Photon.
