Hi CC
Likewise I hope you have a great year too. Anything has got to be better than last year. Cool about the baby dragons. We were at the vet last Saturday with both birds. The cockatoo is fine and has never shown any outward symptoms of illness. He was cured before he really came down with a bad case. Poor Morgan has beat the aspergillus but has residual respiratory problems and polycythemia. That's when he bloods gets so thick that she needs to be bled out. They took more off her. They had just bled her 2 weeks ago too. Poor things had so many needles stuck in her wings that she looks like a junkie. There was a bearded dragon up for adoption at the vet in the waiting room. A pet store had dropped it off to be euthanized because they hadn't sold it. Someone had left it on their doorstep and they tried to sell it for about a year and decided they no longer had a use for it. Jerks. I'm glad the vet clinic wouldn't do it and is trying to find it a home. Wish we had room for the tank or we'd take it. There isn't one square inch of space left in this place. Wish you were nearby, you could take it. It sounds like it hasn't had any love for a real long time, poor thing. Good to hear from you. Take care and give my best to Heather. Vote for ya.

Hey CC
Happy New Year! I sure hope this one beats last year. I feel like I'm coming down with a cold. The vet had one last week when we were there and she hugged me twice. I think we've become her favorite people so I get hugs on arrival and departure. She's on salary there so I know it's not from all the money we've spent, lol.So I laid low, getting up late and slugging around the whole day. Jack played his video games all day then got real ambitious and cleaned both of the big bird cages and their surrounding areas. I was quite surprized. Left work early yesterday because of the snow and even so, it was a two hour trip home. There was already three inches on the ground when I left Rhode Island around 11:45. Lots of fender benders already because people are idiots and still speed and tailgate. At least I got home unscathed. As for fish talk, I seem to be missing another chromis. The finger leather coral died. I had moved it into the 24g tank when it started looking distressed but the move seems to have finished it off. I guess I'll do another water change tommorrow and hope for better luck. Enjoy what's left of the holiday.

Miss you
It just occured to me that I haven't heard from you in a very long time. I hope all is well. Both birds have a fungal infection called aspergillus and it's been costing a fortune with medication and vet visits. The macaw Morgan was showing symptoms like gasping when she got excited. The cockatoo had to be checked because he's always in close proximity to Morgan. His immune system seems to be better than hers because he never became symptomatic. They're both on a new expensive seed sprout diet too. Both seem to be doing well as of now but it's still a life threatening disease. That's about all the news I've got. No money anymore to do anything else. I know it's a busy time for you with the x-mas lights and all. You should see the guy down the street from me! He dosen't have on spare inch of house or yard that isn't decorated. I don't see how a house's electrical system can handle it without blowing up! Tell Heather I said hello. Take care.

Hi!
Thank you, everyone, for your understanding and patience. You are about to see me at it again! Medically I got bad news in several areas so will have some treatment and possibly surgeries. I am still realllly tired and lose focus, I guess because of the pain, meds, exhaustion and no appetite; have lost a ton of weight (like that part!!) but - moving ahead!! Yes, did manage to keep up with the tanks, with help from my store guys, so they are all looking good. Yep, killed off the equarium fish a number of times, pooh. I may not be on every day but I WILL respond to your blogs. As you can see, I am writing everyone from the Discus tank as it is easier. Will post new pix of the revamped Kitchen tank which has 3 little Discus along with Cardinals in it now and is beautiful!! Leaving votes for each! Thanks again, Kerry

Hello out there!
Poor Morgan the blue and gold has aspergillus. She's been to the vet twice already to the tune of $1300. But that dosen't matter when you're family like she is. It's potentially fatal and I guess it's the lucky bird who recovers. She's been started on an anti fungal med. She was so short of breath before it was really alarming. Today she seems like her old obnoxious self so she must be feeling better. Hope you, Heather and your critters are all well. A big miss you vote.

Hi
Honeymoon still going on? Long time no hear from. Whatcha reading now? We have to take Morgan, our macaw to the vet tommorrow morning. She has some kind of a respiratory problem and has been wheezing. If she gets excited she really has to struggle to catch her breath, poor thing. It's probably going to cost a fortune. I'm sure they'll do x-rays, blood tests, cultures as well as the physical exam. It'll probably cost more than a people doctor. I just hope she's okay. They don't make any kind of a bird carrier big enough for a macaw that I have seen anyway. We're going to take her in a cardboard box. The trip is alittle over an hour and she'll probably have the whole box shredded before we even get there. Wish us luck! See ya for now.

Sorry
Oh, and there he is, the Star of your picture. I am sorry you lost the Cleaner. How old was he? I truly love how they clean the fish. Did you see the (fuzzy) new pic on my #2 tank of my Cleaner cleaning the Kleins Butterfly. Rare that I had the camera while he was doing it. He hovering in wait so I grabbed the camera! No luck on the fishing expedition and I haven't seen the crab for about a week. No dead one, no shell to show that the stars ate him. If he is behind the big backpiece, I will not be able to get him. Will continue to do as you suggested, night hunting! Let me know what else you "accidentally" buy when you get the new Cleaner!! ~Kerry

Hi
I lost another chromis last night. I saw him spiral down to the bottom of the tank out of the corner of my eye. He lay twitching on the bottom and immediately the scavengers started after him. I held them off long enough for him to pass in peace. I had a wicked fight with one of the hermit crabs who's determination astounded me. I kept picking him up and dumping him in a far corner of the tank and he'd boogie back at the speed of light! The nassarius and bumblebee snails popped up too and started for him. When I was sure he was dead I gave up the fight and in no time there was a pile of critters where the poor thing was. What a way to go. Have a good night, vote.

Hi and thanks!
I cleaned both tanks today so will wait until tomorrow night to "go crabbing". I really appreciate your advice and hope it works. I did move the rocks around to see if I could find him but no. So he has found a new place to hide. When I was in this tank, cleaning it, all of a sudden, tickle on the back of my hand. The Cleaners were all over, not just cleaning my fingers - cooooool. They have never tried cleaning under my nails, I don't think. I worry like you do and wash first but guess they think they have to check anyway!!! Added a Firefish to the other tank (25gal) and some more HCrabs and snails. The HCrabs in the #2 tank are reproducing like crazy but those in #1 are not. Enjoy your beautiful tank. - K

Hola
I can't wait till you go either! I live my vacations through other people's pictures. We never go anywhere because of all these animals. Who takes care of all yours when you go away? Can I borrow them, lol? I think the macaw beak is the most intimidating to people and I don't know if I trust boarding her. Oh well, we can't afford to go anywhere anyway. Take care, vote.

Hi again!
I hope that you are right about Freeloader. My hairy brown crab is still there, started out small, like the Emerald Crab but is about 1 1/2 time its size now. He killed and ate the Blue Neon Cleaner Gobies because they were small. I think I am going to have to take the tank apart and get him but since he is not going after the bigger guys i am putting it off. Such wonderful things happened yesterday. I was looking at the #2 tank and saw squiggly things in the sand. Looked closer and there were two good sized Feather Dusters coming out of the rock from under the sand. This is one reason I don't move things around in this tank, letting nature take its course means growth like this will happen. I tend to move the rock in the other tank more, mainly because the Gobie Shrimp kept moving the sand and I had to put it back. He is gone now. Isn't it cool the way the Cleaner Shrimp reach out to clean the fish as they pass? Have they tried cleaning the dead skin cells off of your fingers? It tickles. Here is a vote.

Hi there
Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I do suppose I did okay. Not the best, but surely okay! I have never owned a Saltwater tank and do not plan on owning one anytime in the near future, so I am not very experienced when it comes to saltwater fish. FishRuleFishy2.

Thanks for the visit and vote. Here is a vote back. Your tank is great!! I really like the mix of fish that you have. Did that brown hitchhiker come out of the rock? I have one that did and both of my stores have told me to get him out. He has killed 2 blue neons and tried for the bar gobies but they are too big. The only way to get him out is to take the tank apart and I am not ready to do that yet. I know that I am going to have to as he is getting big. - - I know just what you mean re the Cucumber. The owner of one of the stores I go to had just gotten 3 in and put one in his big display tank and was showing it to me. I was mesmerized and wanted one. Of course he told me of the potential problems and when I researched I got worried but he has been here 6 months and doing great, once he found where he wanted to live. I was really afraid he would go into the protein skimmer but he stopped right at the top of the rock, in the flow and seems happy there. Pickle indeed - that is perfect!

Hi
Just saw your name and comments when I was responding to another site. I liked what you said about "taking the pictures is almost as much fun as having the tank". That hit home. I also really like taking the pictures and now, with my Clown Gobie, who poses whenever he sees me, it is even more fun. I posted only recent photos of my tanks since the earlier pictures showed some corals and fish that I lost as I was building them over the past 18 mo. Having a great time with it and glad to be on FC, sharing with everyone. Your tank looks GREAT.
