Hello!
I can relate to changes and busy life events. My daughter moved back home after being in MD for 18 mos, she's happy to be home, working and will be moving back out, but locally this time in a few months. New pets after losing old pets, but not much going on with fish. Going to be doing some tank remodels and moving Gobi-Wan into the 55 sometime this year. Waiting for my brother to get my way too big clown loach out of it, as the other fish can go into a 20, but not that guy, and he can't brackish so can't be a roommate for Gobi. Too bad, that would be an interesting pair to watch! Well, hope all is well with you, all is mostly well with me!

New name
I decided to change the name. There are so many changes and without Doom as the center, it just was time.

First additions of the new year
Added 2 San Juan coryadoras and a cryptocorene spirilias. Doom and Iblis seem to be tolerant with the new additions. So excited to add new life to the tank.

Hello!
Well, my plans of moving the gobi fell apart but he'll get moved this month for sure. The tank he's in is promised to a young friend so she's happy to come help get it done. Gobi will be most happy to have some more room too. He's really growing! Hope all is well in your world.

Hello!
How've you been? How's the tank? Hopefully this week I'll be getting my tanks changed around, gonna move the gobi into the 55. He's going to love all that room I'm sure. Not much else to babble. Been super busy, but weather is finally 'my kind' of weather, chilly nights, cool days and we're to get rain today! It's already a bit drizzly, my cats weren't amused hehe. They came back in quick!

Hello!
Been busy, as usual, but things have slowed down here so my busy is nicely interspersed with good lazy time so no complaints hehe. Weather has calmed down nicely, cool nights and days aren't unbearable any more. I've never liked summer, even as a kid. Well, the day is moving along and I need to join it again. Dratted house chores, they never end. Glad I don't have to work a real job anymore or I'd never get anything done. Not sure how I did it when I was younger with kids and the zoo we always had! Jeesh! Hope you are looking forward to your weekend!

Hello!
So far my weekend is pretty nice. Getting ready to enjoy some video game time and not much else to do today. Got most of the chores done before 8am. Someday I'll actually sleep in, I'm sure of it!

Hello!
Between my busy life lately, my strep throat and my stupid busted elbow cap, oh, and new internet service giving grief, I think I'm ready for a vacation! Jeesh! We finally got some rain here tonight, it's a super wonderful thunder storm that is worthwhile for a change! I'm sure to sleep good tonight!

Long time no visit! Been super busy in my world, but at least I keep busy. Summer started out horrid, but now it's calmer and while there's no rain, at least we're not melting any more. How've you been?

Timer light
Though it did cost a lot of $.
I got me the full spectrum plant growing light
With timer on it.

Can't say enough good things about it.
The plants grow really fast with it, compared to
My old light set up.

If the alge take over though they like it too, lol
So it can backfire.

Thanks for the votes, and here are some for you.

Drift wood alge problems
I've had 2 different alge grow off my drift wood.
I had the white alge growing all over at some point.
It was taking over the tank.

It got very bad, but I stuck with it and its all gone now.
I've tried figuring out what it's called on the Internet but never
did manage to find the right name for it.

Now my drift wood is mostly filled with regular green alge.
Good food for my Peco.

Les just say I haven't been afraid to let things get really bad,
And every time the tank has eventually balences itself out naturally.

Do you have a timer o your light?
I reduced light time drastically as well.

Hello!
Just been busy and am working on getting a new OS for my 'puter. Finally picked one and now have to get a new memory card. I have mondo memory, as in 256k is my trash bin alone, and one of my cards died so have to do all the fun stuff of saving and redoing all the gadgetry. Since I run Linux, I get lots of cool things to choose from and I've just been having fun picking out what I'll want it to do when it becomes bigger better faster. I live with a super geek guru so I get lots of perks in the electronics around here. I tore down the sewer tank, the glofish kept getting deformed and dying too quickly to justify their expense, having had about 25+ since I set it up and so am now working on a change over to get Gobi-Wan into the 55 sometime this summer. He's outgrowing the 20 quickly enough that we're starting to have to really plan for the big move. He's gonna dig having such a big tank to play in. Well, sure hope your summer has been fun so far. Ours is pretty nice and we're sure happy to have some time to relax and enjoy it. Been far too long since I had some major down time. My elbow is healed enough I can Wii again so been hitting the TombRaider pretty heavy in between chores. It's good to be the mom and at home to do what I want!

Hello!
Glad to hear you got some rains, feel free to send them this way when you're done with them! Wish it was raining here, but alas, chilly breezes and sun are all we've been getting. At least it isn't hot. Been busy, and enjoying a bit of it, though house work never was my favorite thing. How does the kitchen stay in such a state of 'we live and eat here', jeesh! Do you have any plans for the long weekend? We're going to work around here, need some screen doors and putting in a patch of grass for my dog so she won't have just dirt to lay in. We had a tester patch when we had 2 dogs but the other one was such a pain and would use it for the toilet and so now that he's no longer with us, we can try again. My dog loves to lay on grass and never used the test patch for anything but napping so hopefully she'll continue that. Hope you are in for a good weekend.

Hello!!
Bubble is miraciously alive, but hanging on a thread! He's a true fighter, he had fungus on his tummy, a ripped anus from a big poop, red sores now, losing his beard fins, and is so skinny. We are continually medicating him and giving him lots of love. He still swims around a bit and blows some bubbles. :)
Left you a vote, been VERY busy lately! It's not going to ease up either for a bit!

Hello!
In my world, 'nice' weather for me is what most folk consider 'bad' weather. We've all been enjoying the rains the past few days, but I see the blue sky trying to come out today. Not ready for it yet! Though, the dog is more than ready for walk so guess I should take advantage of it while I can. Allergies. My family gets them bad too, it's quite frustrating. My bf says I'm almost perfect though as I don't like diamonds, not a huge fan of chocolate and I'm really allergic to roses. I say he just likes that I'm cheap to keep hahaha. Well, you just reminded me that I need to take my allergy pill today too, sniffle...

I wish we had storms to worry about. We live in a high desert and storms are something we crave. I'm already tired of watering outside!

Oh my!
That is one tough guppy! I can understand that your son was angry, I was going to give Indigo back to the pet store. But Mom liked him, and Dad did too. It all changed when Indigo, as I was lecturing him on being a bully(fish aren't stupid, my fish LISTEN!!) and he looked sorrowful and blew a bubble, and started being cute. So...I forgave him and kept him. I'm glad you had fun with the guppy! They are a lot of fun!

HI!
Thanks for swimming by! Your fish must appreciate you a lot, a lot of people like bright fish, and get them even though their other fish doesn't like them. And then they are disposed of, or given away. I made a mistake by getting Indigo, because he was so pretty and was a baby. He attacked both of my guppies, but Zoomer, being older, was injured. His tail was severed, but it growing back nicely with meds and salt. He is well and happy again! Indigo died however, in a different tank.
Left you a vote! I hope your plants do well!

Hello!!
Thank you for stopping by! Yes, Indigo was a sad loss, and even though I didn't have him long he has a special part in my life. I love your tank, the plants look great! My mom has a hard time keeping her Java plants alive in Bubble's tank. Mine do great. (Well, mostly LOL)
see you!

Hello!
Glad to hear the recovery is going well, that's great news! We're hopefully going to get some nasty weather this weekend. Unfortunately there'll be the usual high winds, even gusts of up to 100 over the mtn tops! But hopefully we'll get lots of snow, or rain down here at least, and as I have no plans to do much over the weekend, I'm more than ok with the storm coming in. Hope you have a nice weekend!

Hello!
good news that the surgery has helped, what a relief for you both! Not much going on here, typical life stuff, busy, sometimes boring but all of it pretty good over all. My Rottweiler was diagnosed with Hypothyroid a few weeks ago, boy is she doing better on meds, wow. Her and I walk about 2 miles a day, 5-6 days a week. We're slowly working on upping that, I'd like to get up to 3 miles a day soon. Weather is clear and cold, but storms are due to come by Weds. We sure hope so, not sure this area can handle another winter of wildfires. Thanks for the update, and sure hope you all have a really nice holiday as well!

Hello!
kids, they so want independence, and we try to let them, but it's hard to just watch sometimes! I'm enjoying the cooler weather, I'll be happy now until next summer hehe. Almost done with outside work, another few weeks and then I can get into more art work again. I'm not taking classes for awhile since it turns out if I even get a certificate in anything my daughter won't be eligible for her Pell grants! Crazy! She's 1/2way through her art degree, and I've got nothing but time so no worries. I'm hoping to get back to welding classes this winter though, cuz I need to finish my project, but might have to wait until next Fall. As long as I don't earn the certificate! Well, my tummy is reminding me that I didn't eat breakfast and now it's getting late for lunch. I'm already looking forward to the weekend, have a big bunch coming for Sunday dinner and we'll spend the day doing a movie marathon, always fun. Any plans for your weekend?

Hello!
Nice to hear from you! Blessings and positive thoughts for your little one, what a scary thing for a kid. Well, for you too. Hopefully they'll get it figured out quick. Weather is really nice, still way too dry but not very hot and breezes keep the nights really nice. Been busy with kids and pets, grown kids are almost as much work as when they were younger it seems! I'll keep checking in on ya! Look forward to seeing how your tank has evolved! Mine keep changing too but soon I'll get that 125 from my aunt and then things will really change. The dragon goby will move to the 55 and then he'll really be happy. That is one cool fish indeed, everyone enjoys watching his antics, especially when he sees me hehe. The Fig8 too, it's like a puppy always begging and doing little tricks to get attention hehe.
