Looking forward to the pond pics!
You know it!
Soon as it clears up. I am almost ashamed at the number of fish in it. But, they are all healthy. I just need to rehome some of the fancy goldfish. I have had a lot of them over 4 years and some over 6. It's hard to part with them.
The funny thing it, except for a couple that just kinda showed up (I think my neighbor threw them in out of her nieces goldfish bowl), I can tell you when and where I got all of them.
Gets me all excited, wife and I were discussion the back yard yesterday and our future plans for it. A pond is in there for sure. Looking forward to the pics, no shame in the fish count.
Congratulations on the 1000 posts!
So now you have to come up here. I will give you some very pretty gold fish and a couple dwarf koi.
Last night I noticed one of my power heads was kind of pulsing but I have it on constant. I pulled it out thinking maybe I needed to clean it. However, there was a baby astrea snails on the impeller!
How the heck did they have babies that quickly? I would have seen it when I put the CUC in the tank. Only thing I can think of is the coral that I got from a fellow reefer a couple weeks ago had it on one of them. BONUS!
free clean up crew is always nice. Like discovering you finally picked up some bristle worms from something!
Sweet! I'd be willing to bet $.68 that baby Astrea was yelling, "Weeee weeeeee weeeeeeeeeee" the whole time he was riding the impeller!
Kind of like my daughters guppy that rides the bubbles all day.
It was a few.
I would bet so because it was still having bursts of full speed!
I used to have a big turbo that kept getting back on a spinning power head adapter. It was hilarious. We would take him off and move him to the other side of the tank and less than an hour later he would be back. Now, I know they don't really have conscious thought, but, this thing did it deliberately. It had to. You can ask the boys.
Of course they have conscious thought and are very capable of associative learning. (Yeah, I had no idea either until I just did a little research, so, thanks for helping me learn something today!)
Here's a pretty cool article about snails on DRUGS! Yes, you read that right. Crystal methedrine to be exact!
Don't go dosing C10H15N to your tank now!
Kinda reminds me of this group;
On of my favorite albums - Vegas!
That and my life with the thrill kill cult - sexplosion are my guilty pleasure albums.
Updates? UPDATES?? U P D A T E S???
I'm fairly sure the pond is clear by now and we were promised pics!
Updates, I tell ya!
Yeah, nothing since Tuesday, that's not cool at all.
No the pond is not totally clear but I will snap a pic when I get home.
We are cleaning it Sunday.
The cube is started to clear it's ugly stage. I kind of let it go on purpose to let the algae burn itself out.
I will clean the glass this evening and take a pic.
I also am installing a couple Kessil A360WE on it to compare to the K7. I have to figure out how to mount them in the current canopy tonight.
