About Me

Active within 2 Days

Name: SpazBees

Size/Category 20-Gallon Other

Type: Glass

Shape: Standard

List of Fish:
4 - Bumble Bee Gobies
1 - Dragon {aka Violet) Goby {Gobioides brousonnetti}

Lighting: florescent that came with tank

Filtration: UGF, Marineland Penguin 150B Power Filter (thanks to all the points I've earned :) and I use a Marineland Visi-Therm Heater 75W set to 82 degrees with a salinity ranging from 1.000-1.005

Invertebrates: several ghost shrimp, 2 Nerite snails, and some MTS.

Other Accessories: Tanks are always changing in my world, so decided to keep track of some past ones on one page. T-Rex was my first winning tank here, and that Betta lived a long time. SpazBees has always been my favorite but it too has changed as fins have passed on. Good Golly Those Mollies is now combined with SpazBees and all fins will be happy when they can go from the 20 gallon to a 55, hopefully later this year.

I hope Elfi's tummy is feeling better. Then you can get some sleep! We've already had some almost 90 degree weather. Things are really growing now and I sure hope it doesn't freeze again. Last year no one in the valley had any fruit after the blossoms all froze off the trees.

Ember is doing much better now and that last couple of days she's been listening much better and been sweeter too.

Leaving another quick vote. If you can plan a trip that would be fun!

Another quick vote tonight. Yep, Ember is a handful! That one stitch is still causing trouble as the wound keeps opening up again and it's big enough I can put my finger in it. The vet doesn't seem bothered though...

And, sad news, Ember killed and ate Hazelnut, the squirrel. I was really hoping she'd learn not to and in a way she did. She waited till we were gone for a couple of hours and then did it.

Leaving my vote.

Dropping off a quick vote. Yes, Ember ripped open her shoulder on Monday! And today one of the stitches came undone and she's in a lot of pain. And we have no vet on Wednesdays!!! First thing in the morning I'll call. We don't have any pain meds either so I gave her benadryl just to make her a bit drowsy. Sighthounds are so hyper. It's painful to be around her while she's flailing and screaming in pain. She's quite dramatic. But she's also liable to tear out more stitches with her dramatics...

Got to keep her calm. Good night! :)

How are you doing? Are you getting any of this wonderful rain? We got an inch yesterday and more today. We're so happy about it. Everyone that is except for Eddie. His pen is on lower ground and it turns into a muddy lake in this weather. I know he'll be happy for the hot sun of summer.

Well, I finally went to an ENT on Thursday and got a diagnosis which actually makes sense for my symptoms. He thinks I'm having seizures in my brain which are causing sinus migraines and I've started on a couple of medications which are supposed to prevent the seizures. I sure hope they work because I am totally fed up with being sick so much. I need to get Ember as fit as Melian was! Oh, and there's other work to do too.

Talking of Ember, I took out the lure machine for her for the first time on Monday and we ran her and Longshanks. They did great! She really loved it and tore up the lure each time. Longshanks mainly chased Ember but he'll get the hang of it, I'm sure.

Elfi is only 3 months or so older than Ember. I bet they'd make a great team. I wonder if Elfi would like to chase a lure. Plus, right now they're exactly the same weight.

I have to take Ember in to the vet on Monday for an x-ray of her leg. She has a bony lump on her left tibia and I'm concerned.

Bob is still fat. He's on a "diet" but he's still way too fat. I've tried saying he needs less food but some people feel too sorry for him when looks up and meows.

Pippin seems to be feeling better and I hope he'll be fine. He needs more exercise too. At least he does get to drive twice a week which is more than most horses, let alone most minis!

I hope you're doing fine and your critters too. Leaving a vote for you.

ok replying backwards. the weather is really spring like here. not happy about that. my friend in NY just got something like 16 inches, pooh!! i am going up there in the middle of April. i wish there would be snow, but i dont think i will get that lucky!! dont know what you were thinking with a pup either, hehe. glad Elfi had fun with the ss's dog. that had to be a riot to watch. wow you are going to have to get some benefits from sisnlaw working there. ok hope i touched on some things, my brain is a bit out there tonight. talked on the phone for a very long time and cant talk while sitting. i think after all the people i talked to i ended up being on the phone for over 5 hours and had to walk the entire time. then did some minor(very) cleaning of a couple of tiny garden areas. so i think i will end here. take care my dear. love and hugs your way, Kay

How are you doing? Elfi and Loki still keeping you on your toes? Ember is going through that teenage rebellious stage right now. She's as sweet as ever though.

However, she ran off with a guinea fowl in her mouth and has plucked a few chickens. Sigh! Some extra training sessions are in order. We are currently working on the all important "come".

We had a great time at the coast despite rain the entire week. Ember just loved it! She even ran into the ocean a few times. She likes water more than Melian did. Still not as fast or as beautiful but time will tell. Actually, I doubt any dog could ever be as beautiful as Melian. She was a stunner.

Yes, it's so sad about Rufus. He was so special to Kay and I know how heart broken she is about him. I feel her pain.

On a lighter note, I am entirely jealous that you saw the Hobbit 2. I so want to see it! I suspect it's the best of the 3. What do you think? And I like that they added the character of Tauriel.

Just dropping by with a good bye and don't be jealous vote. We're heading to the coast for a week. It's supposed to rain every day both there and here. We've already got 2 inches here. Yay!

Wish it weren't raining so much there though! It will give us an excuse to be lazy though.

Are you getting any of this rain and or is it all getting stuck in the mountains?

Here's that vote.

Sorry that I haven't said a word for a bit.....been really busy. Working with those horses now every week and such, well, that took my time. Everyone is getting over sickness (blach!) and I have been neglecting my fish. Peekaboo is well, and fat LOL, and Sophie is doing fine. How's Elfi? She's probably growing quite a bit now. :)))) Hope Loki is learning to behave himself, LOL! I do know the meaning, Curiosity killed the cat!
Well, I hope all is well. The weather has turned colder and less windier now. I sure do wish that warm weather was to stay. But spring in Jan. in the north is quite rare. Especially near the Arctic Circle!
Just gave Sophie a bath, and might as well say the bathroom too. That shower hose squirms a bit, but not the dog! LOL!

Thank you so much for stopping by with congratulations for my win for setup of the week. Now I'm setup of the month! What a great way to start the new year.

I'm sorry I didn't stop by sooner with my thanks. As you know, my win for setup of the week was overcast with sadness as Melian died that same week. I still have a hard time believing she's gone

It was awful and I am still heartbroken about it. I'm glad I have Ember now but, of course, she can never replace Melian. She is super smart like Melian though and she's taught herself to open the kitchen door and lets herself in.

Bob is doing great, depending on one's point of view. One of my sisters took him inside when the weather got really cold. I had him in one night but someone here is allergic to cats and didn't want to be allergic to Melian so that's why I ended up not taking Bob myself. Obviously not an issue anymore with Melian gone.

However, Bob is super FAT! I fed him for over a year and he was nice and trim and looked great. She had him a month and he gained almost twice his weight more! I kept telling her he's eating too much and she didn't listen. Now poor Bob is on a diet.

How's Elfi doing? I just saw my blog to you about Melian running with Elfi but being afraid of big dogs. I hate reading old things like that. Kind of puts a huge lump in my throat.

Now onto something more fishy, the pond is completely iced over now with all the cold weather. Occasionally we can see the fish below the surface but they are in hibernation till the warmer weather of spring.

Thanks again for stopping by and here's a vote for you.

Just stopping by to say hi. I was trying to catch up on my FB blogs and, of course, it makes me cry. So many beautiful photos of my beautiful Melian.

I do have some good news though. I have the new puppy, Ember. She's the same colour as Melian but not as pretty. But that's okay, I didn't love Melian because she was beautiful. She just happened to be that too.

Longshanks is a saluki pup that my brothers got in October when all the saluki people came up with their dogs for a meet.

You should get another Rottie. I'm actually getting Longshanks' sister in a week. I haven't been able to sort through my latest photos. I have so many of Melian. She was so beautiful, so sweet, so cute, so everything good...

Thank you, Spaz. If you want to get more teary eyed check out this video I made. horse-videos/ watch-video-329d7 fe2227a490caccbf9ce47559980.aspx (No spaces.)

It's called Melian's Last Ride. If the link doesn't work you can go to the videos on HC.

I keep reliving it over and over again. I feel so sick about it. I can't believe she's gone.

Leaving a vote in her memory.

Yep, lots of snow means lots of work. We got 13 inches yesterday. Thankfully a couple quads took care of the REALLY big stuff. In one soccor field that we go to it was up to Sophie's chin! She's pretty good on and off leash. My what bunnyhops she did! LOL!
Right now she is leaning against my leg as she is resting this morning. Not eating much....she had a rough night I guess. We live close to a school and they were clearing it. She doesn't like those bulldozers or nothing. I can't imagine 30'. But sledding sounds like fun!!!!
Have a great day! If you like snow better move up north! LOL!

Long live the Goose! Well, that is great news! I'm glad you have some more time with her.

Okay, so that's the first time I've sent condolences for something that didn't happen.

I"m glad Elfie is settling in so well. Maybe one day she can get to run with Melian. Melian's not too keen on strange big dogs but she might make an exception. :)

Leaving a vote for you. Yay for Goose!

I'm sorry I didn't read your blog when I stopped by earlier. I'm so sorry about the Goose. I know she meant a lot to you and was quite a character. We do miss them!

I hope your son is feeling better now. Sounds quite painful!

Good luck with Elfie and here's another vote.

Hi Spaz! wow, congrats on your puppy!!!!!!! We got a new dog too, her name is Sophie. she was being given away, her family couldn't keep her. She is a German Shepherd/ Yukon Beardog cross and is a 30 lb dog but wow, she acts like a big dog and looks almost exactly like a GSD, a blonde one, but not quite as severe. She's a rare one, you'd never find one on the internet at all! We looked and looked, but nope, nothing like her. She's awesome!
And we got a free lepard gecko. we named him Peekaboo, because he peeks out whenever. :)))) He's a brown spotted little guy, instead of black, and boy, he's so adorable and friendly! He loves hair......especially Mom's. LOL! He gives you this cheeky look and then dashes up her arm. lol!
Glad to hear all is well.....lots of snow here. Cold snap, was once -30 C! Brrrrr....Sophie LOVES the cold. :))) Haha, you are not getting are just enjoying nature a bit more!
Have a nice day Spaz!
