Hello!
How are you? How's your mom? Our winter is still more like a spring, but some snow showers are to come tonight and tomorrow. I sure hope so! Getting tired of all this hand watering by bucket! Fish are fine, pets are too. Kids are great, my son only has 12 weeks left and then he's done, woohoo! Then he'll be working full time and having to enjoy the joys of car insurance, commuting, saving for a house etc etc. My mom fell and broker her hip at work last tues, but is already in a good rehab and doing fine. Been busy with glass and other art projects, and general life. No kids this weekend though, they are all out of town and boy, are we enjoying that! It's so quiet! and snacks last longer than a minute! hehe. Well, sure hope all is well with you, miss your notes!

Hello!
Hello! How goes your winter? Send more this way when you can, I'm sick of this early spring stuff! I miss cold and stormy! All is sorta well here, we're at least trying to get over whatever bug hit us this month, ugh. fish are great, pets are all great, and my Zelda game is keeping me entertained while I recover...that's my story anyway hehe. Have some glass projects lined up, been enjoying that a bit too. Have some orders too, rather scary but cool at the same time. Not much else to babble, just was wondering how you are!

Rub my belly
hehe, great decor there! Hello! We are having a warmer, cloudier and more humid day than usual. Rains are to arrive later today, snow tomorrow. I sure hope so! It's been very very dry here and now this area is once again in national news for bad news, another major wildfire burning away south of us again. Now of course the flash flood worries begin to go with all the other worries. I'm thinking I'm finally on the mend of illness and injury. Not fair to have to deal with both at once but figured it's a mixed blessing, this way I can get over all of it at once and not drag it out any longer. This is my goal anyway! Been busy, and also been good about resting, learned my overdo it lesson for the month indeed. Sure hope you aren't too snowed in, and thanks for sending some of that storm this way, we need it!

What a nice tank. Fish are all doing fine, I found some swordtail fry and just noticed I got another male in the tank. It has been cold these last few days. I hope you are fine and take care. Have a great day, bye

Happy New Year!
to you too! So, we still have to do the tree, some yard work, taking my son for some more parking practice, have to do house chores and whew, not much different than any other day. At least I'm not moving a fish tank! Your friend must be a super one for you to tackle that chore! My friend is still thanking me for all the work my son and I did on their garage a few months back. good friends are such a treasure!

I Lost Plum Betta today :(
He has appeared healthy - not fat or too skinny, no raised scales, good color, but I noticed he wasn't eating as much and the last two days breathing in more surface air than normal. So now this is a cherry shrimp planted tank. I don't think I will get another Betta for a long time. I wish they lived longer....

Hello!
Our old dog is now 16 and is still getting around. My son nicknamed him 'the old liability' hehe. He lives for the kids, and has been a good family dog and we will miss him. We're pretty sure he won't make it through the winter, he's just getting too old. My cat is 17 (or 18, can't remember, I'm old too hehe) and she's getting skinny but hasn't really slowed down much. And she's still in charge of the dogs. Funny to see her 8lbs of fury leading the 139lb Rottie about hehe.

Fish are all doing nicely. I'll be remodeling the 55 today. Was supposed to do it yesterday but nothing went quite as planned, as is typical for days around here. The guys SWEAR they'll be getting my kiln set up today. I will be hurting them if they don't, I swear! hehe. The main problem is having so much stuff in the garage that isn't ours, and finding a stable place that won't be subject to bumps and it has to be perfectly level. Since we actually use one side to park a car in, and the other has the 3 motorcycles along with all the 'stuff', it's not as easy as we'd like it to be! Lucky 2 bikes will go sometime in the next few months, as well as many of the boxes as kids get settled and come claim their belongings. Guess I should start prepping for more fish tank fun, did a major cleaning on the sewer, the back wall was covered in algae that was starting to peel off like old wallpaper, forgot how bright it in there now that the 'sewer sludge' is gone! hehe. Sure hope you are still enjoying your peaceful weekend, I know I am!

Time flies
amazing how quick it can go sometimes. I'm enjoying a very quiet morning, trying to decide just what all I feel like accomplishing today. It was cloudy when I got up this morning and was hopeful of some rain, but alas, the sun is winning. I was totally surprised about SOTM, wasn't even thinking about it but it's sure a welcome surprise. Points are always handy here as well as a chance to hear from new FC folk along with all my friends. How is BIL? My neighbors husband is doing much better, he's hoping to get cleared to go back to work the end of the month. She is too hehe. Fish are all great, I'm still trying to get decent pics of the glofish, wow, had no idea it would be so difficult! The actinic blue is really awesome. Not much else to tell, guess I should think about getting breakfast going now that it's almost lunch time! How are all the fry? Looking forward to seeing your new driftwood set up.

Hello!
How is BIL doing? All is well here, no injuries, nothing happening to speak of and I'm enjoying the quiet. My plans for this week got stymied but it will be worth it, the troops are going to get a bunch done for me Sat so that next week I can get back to my art room and other things I'm trying to accomplish. We'll finish moving a desk on Sat, then paint the wall it was helping 'hide' (it's a tall desk on a beige wall, ugh) and then that afternoon we'll get the new low desk in place and all 'puter things sorted out for maximum efficient placing hehe. Hope all is well in your world. Looks like I won't get to hit up the new LFS until later in Sept, but it will be worth the wait, I'm sure. They state if they don't have the fish you want, they'll order for you. I hope they have decent prices, I'd really like to get some new fins. I've learned fishkeeping is not a hobby, more of a habit, my family says I'm a fin junkie hehe. Well, hope you are enjoying your day!

Those cories are really pretty! I wish i could get some. i think we should get as many hobbyists breeding as possible, so the fish industry will be run by humane, responsible people. Sadly, there are no LFSs where i live. there was 1, but it's out of buisness, because the guy wouldn't sell you a fish if your paramaters were bad.

Say hi to your dog for me!--simon

Hello!
I'm ready for fall now. Some neighbors are going to share some plant life, but have to wait till the fall, need to move a lilac bush, also have to wait till the fall...ready for cooler temps, also not happening until you know when. But, so far all new things planted are doing well. Getting a handle on my stupid earwig problem, but now every time I get a tickle or itch somewhere, I'm so bugged out I get the heebiejeebies too! How goes back to work? How is the bro-in-law?

Hello!
It's a nice feeling to have kids growing up and out, and to finally have room for MY things is the icing! Daughter and stepson are still in the area, less than 1/2 hour away in traffic so it's not like I'm feeling the loss, they'll be here for Sunday dinners and whenever they need some mom time. We're just happy we survived their teenaged angst years and can now just enjoy them. Especially from afar haha. Got all water changes done the other day, and I don't feed my fins on Weds and Suns, so they are all looking at me like I'm starving them to death. Be more convincing if they were thinner. Well, bacon needs tending, making some bacon onion dip as well as breakfast so the house smells yummy and the dogs are now doing the same starvation plea as the fins. Spoiled brats, all of them!

We are having a rainy week. I wasn't sure how the pic of the pleco would turn out, always looks good on the computer and when you download it they are small pics. I hear you with the glasses, I may need distance glasses in the future. Hope you have a nice day, voted for all. Take care, bye

Me too.
Hey, I've had the same luck. There's one site that offers them, (can't remember the name), but they're shipping charges are outrageous. Might have to give in though. Lead anchors worry me. Are they really safe? My favorite LFS guy doesn't trust them either, but he admits he may be wrong. I've seen conflicting info on the web, of course.

Quick question
Hey, I thought I posted this once, but I don't see it. If this question ends up appearing twice, I apologize. Anyhow, do you know of anyone online that sells the plastic disc plant anchors? I saw them once on eBay and haven't seen them since. Thanks.

i like the way you break it down guess i didnt look at it that way so i will either do a water change weekly or do a water test and figure out what a good light duration would be good and iam feeding them twice a day because they all looked like they needed it and hope that dosent get me in trouble i guess ill have to vacum the gravel on a regular basis boy thats a lot to figure out did you mention an ottociclus and would one be enough for a ten gallon or would i need maybe too of them ok thanks for breaking it down for me looks like i have my work cut out for myself hope you are having a good day see you later the captain
