Hey Kerry
Happy New Year! I sure hope this one beats last year. I feel like I'm coming down with a cold. The vet had one last week when we were there and she hugged me twice. I think we've become her favorite people so I get hugs on arrival and departure. She's on salary there so I know it's not from all the money we've spent, lol.So I laid low, getting up late and slugging around the whole day. Jack played his video games all day then got real ambitious and cleaned both of the big bird cages and their surrounding areas. I was quite surprized. Left work early yesterday because of the snow and even so, it was a two hour trip home. There was already three inches on the ground when I left Rhode Island around 11:45. Lots of fender benders already because people are idiots and still speed and tailgate. At least I got home unscathed. As for fish talk, I seem to be missing another chromis. The finger leather coral died. I had moved it into the 24g tank when it started looking distressed but the move seems to have finished it off. I guess I'll do another water change tommorrow and hope for better luck. Enjoy what's left of the holiday.

hello buddy
yeah when i was a firefighter for 10 years they taught us that smoke is just as dangerous as fire was and that we did not want to breath that stuff in which most smoke had high levels of chemicals present they also warned us of certain smoke could cause cancer so i was extra careful to make sure i was wearing my SCBA properly, sorry to hear about the cat and i bet your house smells lovely right now that new smoke smell they should bottle that smell, well take care buddy..

how is it going Kerry
well i finally got another tank. i got a 55 gallon. i am going to put all the other fish except the goldies in it. then i will see what else i get to go in there with them. i think i finally figured out what was causing my cloudy water. there was an ammonia spike that i didnt catch. dont know what caused it. but the tank is fine for now. sure hope you are doing well. take care and write when you can, Kay

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

10/26/2008 07:57.08 PM Report This Comment
are you talking about the catfish in your setup as a leopard cat the first photo is a Synodontis multipunctatus squeaker catfish from tanganyika and the calico type fish you have is a Metriaclima (Pseudotropheus) zebra aka Marmalade Cat but at any rate what you are describing sounds like aggression and the fish in question is being punked out you have a tank full of aggressive fish as you may be aware of so at times you will experience some brutality and you may have to remove the fish that is taking a beating and rehoming it or take it back to the pet shop for a different model, so hows my buddy doing aye, well be good i am off to watch surviver..

Hi there, Kerry, hope all is well. Have been busy around the house and had some visitors, too. Also have been doing water changes on the tanks, especially the Malawi and Betta tanks. Got a new Betta, he is a delta tail, blue with white. I'll try to get some pictures of him. P-tco had Lake Malawi cichlids in yesterday, for cheap, but, my tank isn't ready. I'm taking pictures to upload this week. Anyway, feed your fishies for me! ~vote4u~ on all!

Hi Kerry
You have such nice healthy looking tanks. You're a fish keeping wizard. As far as a sand sifting star, I never put one in the tank. Whatever it is was probably born in the tank from a piece of rock or coral. Again please don't ever worry or apologize about not writing back in a hurry. We can't spend every waking minute on here. I hope I see that starfish regenerate. I wonder what's been munching on him. I thought my halloween hermit crab had died last night because he hadn't moved. He was up next to the front of the glass and when I touched him he wouldn't move. This morning I saw his shed next to him. I've never seen them shed out in the open like that. I never knew they were so listless too when shedding (molting whatever). I poked at his legs to see if he was alive and got no movement so that's why I thought he was dead. Glad he was just growing new clothes. Well girl, stay safe and be happy.

It is good you are resting. Hope you are getting better. Ya, after all the losses I suffered in the 55 gallon I am waiting and taking my time with the 72. It will be worth it I think. Take care and be well. ~vote4u~

Hi Kerry, Thanks for the post. I took out all the wood from the 72 gallon. This next week I am creating my own faux rock background to attempt the Lake Malawi biotope. Should be fun! No fish yet, but I am happy with my decision. Hope all is well! ~vote4u~
