Hi everyone!
I just wanted to leave ya’ll a message and say I’m SO SORRY that I haven’t blogged in so long. The holidays were so busy then I was sick for over a week and then school started. My Mom’s been sick for close to 3 weeks now and just can’t shake this cold so I’ve been helping her out a lot. In addition to everything that’s been going I decided to get a cute black snail and named him Gary, of course, like the snail on Spongebob. As if I don’t have enough tanks to clean. My Mom and I had to babysit a friends dog for a week and she completely wore us out. I hope everyone is well and I will try to blog at least twice a week. I miss you all and will be back on soon!! Vote. <>< Jen

Hi Kerry!
That is sooo sweet you buy ur kitties presents! I bought my fishes new food and my pup Kovu got real ham for dinner :o) I finally got to hold one of the stray kittens that my uncle rescued and is now living in my mommom's basement. I didn't realize but there are 6 kittens plus the momma. They are all so sweet!! My uncle bought them a "kitty condo" so it looks like my Mommom will be babysitting the kitties for a while. My uncle already has 5 cats and 1 dog at his house or he'd take em' to his place. Hope you got everything you wished for this x-mas. Happy New Year just incase I don't get to log back on. Hugs!

Hey Kerry
Yeah, lights can get crazy expensive. That’s good though that you got a nice new light for the plants. Don’t worry about the blogging. I think this is the first I’ve blogged in about 4 days. I’ve been shopping here and there since Nov. cuz I takes me 2 months to get it all done. I envy those people who go out and are done in one day. I’m just happy to be with my family though and my pup and fishes on X-mas. Presents are a bonus. Fish hugs and vote. <>< Jen

Hi there Kerry
Actually, I paid about $15 for it. I got it from I checked real quick and it looks like it is out of stock but here is the exact page incase they get more in: -Air-B10-Battery-Air-Pump.aspx
I checked around the internet quick and it looks as if also has the same pump for a little cheaper. That exact site is: -Air-B10-Battery-Air-Pump.aspx
I read the reviews on this product on and out of the 3 people it said no one would recommend it. However, it seems to me they are using it more often than they should. You can read the comments and decide for yourself but I think any other pump that goes on when the power goes out is much more expensive. Now, I believe it does take 2 “D” batteries and plugs in the wall so it knows when there is no power, to kick on. So besides the inital putting the batteries in, you don't have to mess with it. If I get to flip a breaker this week I will try it so I can let you know if it’s worth it. Hope this helps you some!! Sorry your kitty got sick. Glad he will get better though. I’m sure he’ll be watchin’ your fishes swim in no time! Vote for you. Nite nite. <>< Jen

Hi Kerry, hope you are feeling well today. Just stopped in to leave a vote and see how you are. An update on the Betta situation... Betty is now in the 55 gallon tank with Blue, and they are doing very well together. She is eating well, swimming around freely, not hiding too much, and he isn't chasing her. I think she is happy in there. Bob is doing fine, I have come to the conclusion that he may have been used for breeding and sold because of his age. He is really big, full fins, and down to business. So, I am going to retire him from breeding rather than have him drive another female crazy! He is a sexy boy, but, dang, he is one of those guys that women should just stay away from! LOL!!!!
Have a great day! Pam

Well, the rain stopped finally. I had the roof on the house, redone finally. Then, I lost a couple of fish, in the past couple of days, and of course none of the cheap ones either. I lost the flying fox and the bristlenose pleco. I don't know what happened. I replaced the flying fox. The pleco is harder to find a nd a H-ll of alot more pricey. Besides that, counting down the days until, THANKSGIVING!!! Yes, I do the same thing veg in front of a tank. It's kind of hard, when you see dead fish floating. It makes even that more depressing. Oh, well what else could go wrong!! i'm glad I have a good sense of humor about life.Take Care!!

So Sorry...
That is terrible about your Bettas! I read that they only live for about 2 years. Which means if you get a really nice mature one you will not have him for too long. I don't like that. I had to remove the female since Bob was chasing her so much and her tail was splitting. She is back in her little container she came in. I am hoping to move her to the 55 gallon and do some research on breeding. I do have a male Betta in the 55 gallon, but, he is young and small and the tank has tons of hiding places with plants, rocks, and driftwood. I think she will be fine in there. I know it isn't as simple as putting them in the same tank! The corys are great, so busy going up and down and around! The catfish in the 72 gallon are doing well, too. Although it is somewhat frustrating since I have so many rocks in it and so many caves that the kitties hide in there most of the time. They have, however, cleaned up the algae so fast! I have to give them algae tabs so they have enough to eat. I also put cut cucumber in the tank for the goldfish which the algae eaters also enjoy. I hope you feel better soon! Having a fever sucks! We lost our health insurance and that meant no meds for a couple of months until we got poor enough for TANF. I take a bunch of pain meds because of fibro. I spent several weeks going through withdrawls, it was nasty. Now we have all our meds, but, I have the opposite problem of going back on them and suffering the side effects of just starting out all over again. I hate the health care system in this country. I am praying things will change! Best to you and feel better soon! Left you some votes! Pam

Good Morning
Well, the two Bettas are busy... he is building a nest and chasing her around, and she is hiding, playing dead! But, I saw her adding some bubbles to the nest last night, so maybe there is hope. I am sure it will take her awhile to get ready to lay eggs. I am taking the corys out and putting them in with the Gouramis. I have two Julii in there. The ones I bought are peppered and bronze. I told the girl to give two the same, but I didn't realize until after I got home they weren't. My hubby was asking me questions when she was fishing them out! Oh well, an excuse to get more! Best to you, Pam. ~voted4u~

I will try to send each of my friends an individual blog but in case I don't get to you, thought I would put a note on each tank. My doctors have ordered complete rest and a bunch of tests over the next several days. This includes staying stress free and I was really stressing out trying to keep up with blogs here and on CC. So, I won't be on line until Wed or Thursday. I will come on to feed the equarium because I hate it when those guys die and to congratulate the next SOTW but no blogging for now. Please don't forget I will be back!!!! ....Kerry

Hi Kerry! Well, I’m glad I don’t bore you. Sorry to hit the sore point, yes, Native Americans have always had a raw deal, whether under British, Spanish, Portuguese, or American rule. In Africa, Bantu people are the majority. The Khoisan people, which include the Bushmen are amongst the oldest inhabitants of Africa. The Bantu people migrated during the Iron Age and eventually settled over most of sub Saharan Africa. San were hunter gatherers, while the Khoi were pastrolists who eventually took up full agriculture after the Dutch landed in Cape Town. The San never quite gave up their lifestyle, and being an egalitarian society, they never owned resources like land, the rivers and mountains, animals and plants. They figured it all belonged to God who is called /cagn, and the Bantu and Whites, of course, they owned land and animals, namely livestock. The San would simply kill some cattle as if it were a wild animal. The Bantu or White farmers would then punish them with commandos who wiped out whole clans. They were also enslaved during the slavery period when slavery was practiced here. Most of the Bantu tribes survived the onslaught of the British forces until they reached a breakpoint which was often the case. Those tribes that revolted were punished, like the Zulu for example. But other tribes like the Swazi called a truce and became a vassal state of Britain. Eventually becoming protectorates and then independent countries outside the old Union of South Africa. The San are not inherently violent people. They are peaceful, hospitable and very reasonable people who have an immense understanding of how plants and various resources in the Kalahari can be utilized for the advantage of people. Many of the old shamans have died and this knowledge rests with a few. When I was studying archaeology, we did an intense study. The prof. who taught us about rock art is one of a few westerners that speak !kung and he spent a long time with them, from the 80s, documenting all he could. And yes, I do think your little discus may not be too happy about being alone. I figured you’d put him back with the others eventually. I was wrong, you’re going to keep him there then. I’d say another 2 discus can’t hurt ;-D And I didn’t want to say, but Bumble bee gobies are hard brackish water fish and discus are soft water fish. Perhaps you keep them both in tap water. Its OK, but they’re not tank mates you would normally put together. These are your tanks and you can keep whatever you like, so don’t mind me please. Otherwise it’s a lovely day out here. Its hot and humid during the day, but the evenings are so lovely. Its rained almost every night now for about two weeks already. The vegetation and the insects are just going wild. We’ve had the first mosquitoes and frogs out this year. Anyways, you take care. Kind regards, Stokes

New Betta
Hi, Kerry, We got a new Betta last nite. His picture doesn't do him justice. He is really more lavender with purplish fins. Need to figure out how to adjust my camera! Also, check out the 72 gallon FreshwaterRocks tank. Read what my husband bought! ~vote4u~

My New Betta
Hi, Kerry, I finally uploaded some pictures of my new Betta. He is very pretty. A Delta Tail with red, white and blue pectoral fins. There is one picture where you can see them a bit. They start blue, go to red, then have white tips. He is really cool. I have him in my LR tank with the Gourami until the Betta tank is finished it's cycle. He bosses the Gourami around and they try to ignore him. They never chase him at all. But, they sure chase each other! ~vote4u~

Mini Heaters
Hi, Kerry, I saw on a blog where you were talking about not being able to heat the Betta tank. I saw these tiny heaters for Betta bowls. I don't see why you couldn't get those for your little guys. They must be made to heat a tiny bit of water since those Betta bowls are so small. Just an idea. I am getting one for my 4.5 gallon hex for my new Betta. Thanks for all your votes! ~vote4u~
