Sure hope this year we do something worthy! How's life there? Things are crazy here and we are in the process of buying a home so those dream tanks will get to become reality at long last. Not much else to tell. How's school this year?

92? SWEEEET!!!!!
Excellent news there my friend. I too will miss winter a bit but this year have a lot of stuff planned so won't mind having some more daylight. But I am a winter fan, for sure. Looking forward to seeing who will make the grade in camp for Raiders this year. Be nice if we could do something other than 'almost'. We are due a good season! How goes fins? I still think a raider tank will be cool, it's on my to have list!

welcome back raider
grades, gotta have em if you want the money later in life! Been amazingly busy, sick, etc life is life and sometimes it's quite a ride, no? Later into this summer we are going to be looking for a home to buy and I get a fin room. Coolness. Of course that will be years in the making but well worth it. Spring training coming up, wonder if our team will manage to play this year or just wear uniforms haha. How goes your winter up there? Ours is very mild this year, the mountains got lots of white but we are already back to brown and nice temps, gonna get to almost 60 today with clouds. Gee, tough day!

Thats a cool set up. My convicts, Alvin, Simon and Theodore wanted me to say hello for them. Check out my tank, I think we have the same taste in fish. Here's a vote for you.

Hey Raider
hows the vacation? All is well here, had TONS of company for the craze and survived them all. Tonight it's just me and the pets for a few more hours, then my son and nephew come home after a day of frivolity with their friends. Cleaned my tanks today, whew, that was a chore but it's always worth it. Hoping '08 will be a raider year, been a long time and is well overdue! I do have a lot of blog pages, never really thought about it. I try to keep up with everyone who stops by, and well, I am a babbler so it's not that hard. Well, that's about it from here, hows it going there?

I hate being sick
sniff, ugh, cough. Bleah. I have all kinds of gravel, natural, scary glow in the dark, insane colors abound it's true. I know about having what comes with the tank, I buy used so much and keep the gravel no matter how scary cuz sometimes I run across someone looking for that style. And it makes great bottom weight in fake plants or outdoor plant pots to help keep them from getting knocked over easily. I saw we didn't do so good over the weekend-oh well, perhaps next season we will get it figured out!

I disagree lil fan
I think this tank looks very cool, I even like the gravel to offset the black and silver of those gorgeous convicts. Maybe a mini raider helmet in there to make it better but really, you have some great rocks, those plants are nice and the different types go well together. It's a proven fact they like those clay pots. I would say maybe try to cover the pots with Java Moss, but only cuz I am learning how not to kill the stuff and am putting it weird places to see how it works out. and it would be fun to watch them try to clean it to their liking.

snow day? SWEET!
Lucky you, my boys are wishing for a snow day but alas, it's sunny & cold here. What tank were you referring to? My new 55-the lost spaz-cost nothing. My boyfriend traded some computer work with my aunt for tank, lids & lighting, then I combined 3 tanks into one so all gravel, heater, pumps, decor & fins were free, also got a gift card yesterday & got top fin 60 filter & 6 neons at 6 for 10 bucks. The Swahala and Malaysian driftwoods were on sale for less than 8 bucks each over the summer, the UGF plates came with a tank a friend gave me (the 40) it only had 4 UGF plates & light-no lid or anything else. I do a lot of thrift store shopping-you'd be surprised at what can be found & lots of hunting, sometimes folks get rid of stuff way, way cheap or free. I do a lot of stocking up shopping when I have the money, & actually need to get rid of some tanks & supplies cuz there's more than I need. I will keep my grey 20 that's in the garage, got it at thrift store for 15 bucks, but will be selling the black 20, need to get rid of a 10, might keep one just to have a bigger tank when I get some more killis as I have a nice stand that I found on craiglist for 10 bucks that is oak (well, oak looking) for it, still have a 10 & a 20 for reptiles in the garage, plus that 40, have no room or money to set up yet-but I do have all decor and most other stuff for it, just that with it no lids, stand or light -our snake is using it, that will be a lot of work/$$. It will be what the spazbees home eventually. Also have scored cool stuff for pocket change at yard sales for fins. Have patience & shop around is my motto!

no convicts
nah, won't have a tank for those until we move which is a little up in the air, maybe Feb, or might wait till Feb 09, so have time to plan. Got 4 Indian Glassfish for the spazbees tank today, will photo tomorrow and hope to get the killis up tomorrow as well. Glad to see you are getting on that water change. Man there is nothing to scavange in the killis tank so I have to clean it every couple of days, ugh. Hoping to find some cherry shrimp soon for them!

Livebearer colony
Man what is in your municipal water supply... Uranium? :) The only reason I say that (jokingly) is the water in my large tank (the 55) is way acidic, has a high level of nitrates and a total hardness of 250. This tank has what is known as old tank syndrome and in all honesty all of my fish do great. I perform some pretty big water changes on a weekly basis to compensate for the various spikes (high and low) found in the water quality but really my Endlers have been very healthy in this tank for over six years now. My Endler colony in the ten gallon tank reside in exactly the opposite conditions. I frequently move the fish back and forth between the tanks (for selective breeding purposes) which probably result in a shock to their systems but haven't had any die yet. These fish are nigh indestructable... almost. The common guppies I've kept (for feeding purposes) in the past have also been just as resiliant. I don't know about the other types of livebearers such as the Mollies and Swords etc. as I haven't kept any in about twenty years or so. Anyhow I love your Convicts... wish I had room for some.

Well that stuff seems to be a miracle worker, the fungus seems to be shrinking in size and as I said there's no sign of him being sick, so a few more weeks and maybe I can add some new fish again. :)

it's ok, if you lived in New England you would surely hear them called the Pats but enough about football, how the fish doing? One of my new fish already has a fungus on it's fin, figures I wait so long to find them and then one is sick. Not acting sick though it the bully of the tank and eats the most too.

where are you?
busy kid stuff I hope. Spent the last 2 days getting the 55 set up, so hoping tomorrow to get pics of it. It was not easy catching all the fins I have from the 3 tanks, the loaches are insane cuz they hide well and the killis were so fast and are so small it was tough, but they are in their own tank with one mini otocinclus cat and the sewer, gargoyle and t-rex tank are now all roommates in their new mondo condo, haha. Take care!

You can't be serious
Of course the Pats are a pro team, you can't be a raiders fan and not remember the snow bowl in New England! We are talking the best team in football right now and will probably lose only one game this season and will be during the playoffs..............I hate the hype! Here's another vote for you :)

pats are the patriots, to let you know. Hows your world? Too bad about Taylor, rough way to go-getting shot like that! Anyway stay out of trouble. Oh, got the killis tank set up today, will add the plants and wood tomorrow and fins this weekend. Looking forward to that.
