My son has been having some buddies over and they love to terrorize the goldfish and frogs out side, surprised the frogs didn't move out. All other fish are doing fine. Hope you have a nice day and take care, bye

HI
I have a lot of perennials that like to take over, I don't mind, a lot less planting in the spring. It is cloudy today and a little sprinkle. A frog moved into the pond yesterday, that was neat. How are your fish? Have a great day and take care, bye

Hi
No we don't have anymore pets besides the fish. My son isn't too fond of dogs but for some reason has his mind set on an english fox hound. Never know where to find one of those kind. The fish are enough for me, since we had two black labs for 14 and 15 years before Jake was born. Have a nice day and take care, bye

Time
Yes, time is important. One more tank will probably be about it for me. I don't want to get to the point where my hobby becomes a chore. Money just takes some time to save. I wish it was possible to "save" time for later use. LOL. Be talking to you.

Patience
Absolutely. The one advantage of getting older is that it is much easier to be patient. The fact that I have four other tanks to take care of helps too. Talk to you later.

Howdy Jen!
Well.....as vacations go, I almost had a god time. Yes, I can laugh about it now but, I had a bad scare and was rushed to emergency in Silver City NM with a 105 degree temperature. If my friends hadn't been Volunteer Firefighters and a Nurse, I could have died. I just came from my local Doctor and, all is well now. It seems I had what's called a Bladder Retention Infection.
I was miserable. Now I'm feeling so much better and back to work tomorrow. Plus....I left my camera in the rental car and now ALL my pictures are gone! AGAIN!!!!!
So that's been my week. How was yours? I'll try to post regularly now since I'm back to a routine. Well you take care Jen. I left a Vote!

Sorry to hear about your fish tank. I hate to lose fish. One of our angelfish died and the other one is doing great. It just wasn't growing fast like the other one, just fat it must have some digestive problem. My molly had some fry and are growing nicely. It has been extremely hot here too. Have a nice day and take care, bye

Howdy Jen!
Right Now I'm on vacation for a week in New Mexico visiting friends, looking forward to seeing the beautiful scenery. It's beautiful Country here. I haven't had time to do any research on Refugium yet. I'd been preparing for my trip plus looking for my younger cat whose missing.
The one in the grass. I hope she comes back? Anyway, I hope all's well with you? A fellow blogger from Alaska is doing some research as well ( Kathy ) plumbetta! So, I'll write again soon. Take care Jen!

Conscientious Marine Aquarist
Hello. Actually, I've been shopping for a copy on eBay. I've found some very good deals, just haven't been able to afford it yet, (still recovering from last month's vet bills; unfortunately one of our dogs had to be put down due to cancer). Anyhow, I hope to get it within a month. I'll be sure to stay in touch. Sorry it took so long this time, but we had family in town.

Howdy Jen and Thanks for bthe Info!
Howdy jen....the Refugium system is definitely worth looking into? I'll be asking at my LFS in two weeks when I go. I just did a 40% waterchange yesterday and did the other maintainance too. I'm finally keeping my Cories alive since I know what to feed them. You said something about cleaner fish ( what do they look like ) and, are they invertabrates? I can't have Crabs because I've seen what a large number of Tetras can do to a Crab and vice versa! The Tetras ripped him to shreds. I like Crabs but I'd hate to lose one again besides, The crab got A couple of Tetras before they ganged up on it and killed it. Talk about feeding frenzy! I'll do more research on Refugium though and get back to you. Take care Jen.

Howdy !
First...What's your name? I hope I'm not being too curious? Just as in conversation...it's easier to express oneself if introductions are made??? Some don't agree and I respect that too. I'm just asking. Anyway, as I look at your set up it's quite elaborate? I have NO experience with Saltwater but have admired MANY a tank. Saltwater has always been out of my budget LOL! Looks like I'll have to do some research on the Refugium type of filtering system. I don't know what that is as I've never heard the word before? Sounds intriguing? I have an Eheim 2128 thermofilter as you can see on my page and Co2 injection. It's qauite nice for my needs and works beautifully! At present I have no Discus but, they are my favorite Aquarium fish. I'd had them for 9 years when I lived in San Diego. Now, I can't because, I don't have a reliable water source to make regular water changes. Our local water supply is just too unreliable since much of it comes from underground Aquifers and, is way too full of minerals. My goal one day, is to get a bigger tank say 100-125 and my own R.O. system....THEN I'll keep discus again. Tell me, does this refugium system work on freshwater too? My first choice in fish stores is 120 miles away and a three hour drive, however there are a couple of closer ones 70 and 40 miles respectively, so I don't get to them often. I get my water from a local supermarket that has filtering machines for water. It's been working great but I'm getting tired of Schlepping 5 gallon jugs of water into the house every week, BUT I do it because I love fishkeeping! I've had this tank for 2.5 years now and it finally seems to have worked itself into some kind of balance ( FINALLY )? When I first set up this tank I tried Discus but, they all died within a week??? That's why I'm waiting this time.
So....I hope I've answered all your questions and, I look forward to hearing more about Refugium? Take care. I left a Vote as usual.

How are the new fish doing. The tank looks nice and clear. I like to over filter on my tanks and my water is always nice and clean. A little maintaince a day and the fish are all fine. Hope you have a nice day and take care, bye

Good For You!
Howdy, Glad you got your problem worked out. Cycling a tank is the most important first step. As you gain experience in fishkeeping you'll be able to tell which LFS's are good ones? You'll be able to identify suspect fish as soon as you see them. Many people have good luck with big box pet stores but, for some unexplained reason, I never have, so I stick with more specialty stores? Works for me??? Anyway, I'm glad you're doing well. Take care.

I have a point and get our water from the ground and I do not test my water. My tanks are always clear. But he does help when I need him too. He is the one that wanted to get fish in the first place and now we maintain 5 tanks and one fiddler crab tank. Keeps us busy. Have a nice day and take care, bye

Hello again. I appreciate your follow up. "The Conscientious Marine Aquarist:..." is a book I've seen recommended in several places. I think I'll start by finding a copy of that. Too many people have good things to say about it for ALL of you to be wrong, (lol). I'll be in touch. Here's a vote. Thanks again.

Your pictures are nice, love the tank. My son wants to start up a salt water tank, since he seen a lionfish in the store, last time we went.It was expensive so if and when we do start one it will be with different fish. We have 5 tanks and a small tank with cory eggs in, and a small 2 gal saltwater with a fiddler crab in. Have a great weekeknd.

Hey, thought I'd stop by and return the favor. Beautiful tank! Left my vote. I've been toying with the idea of trying saltwater. Haven't quite made it over the fence. My wife wants me to though. Keep in touch.

UPDATE:
I will finally have some photos to post soon. The fish tend to be shy, but now that we have the flame angel in there, she makes all the others come out from hiding. We might even add another fish or two this weekend, so those photos will be posted as well. The process is very slow, but its finally starting to come along. The fish seem happy, so we're doing something right :-)
