Victoria, If I could I would. Amphipod hunting in near my new house has slim pickins. But I can get all the mud I want. :cool:


I just found out where these Rainsford Gobies are spawning. I cleaned my glass and I also cleaned the algae off my algae scrubber which is on one end of the tank where it is hard to access. But in that back corner I never saw because it is up against a duct and I never cleaned the glass there.

I got bored and decided to clean the glass to see if anything was living back there.
There they were. They made a hole behind one of the tubes that goes to the UG filter. I am not sure if they got all the way under the filter plate, but they pop in and out to grab some white worms.

I see one of the possum wrasses also hangs out there. Now that i know their hiding place, I will clean the glass there once in a while to check them out.

My book has been selling pretty good. I guess people are home now because of this situation.
As I said 100% of all the profits are going to MS research in my wife's name and after another $125.00 I will have another $500.00 to donate which will make a total of $1,000.00 donated.

That is pretty good because I think I only get like seven bucks for a book and less than half of that for an E Book.
I can't tell how many books sold all together because I can't figure out their web site. :rolleyes:

Well done Paul, next book your memoirs. You should quadruple that figure in no time.

I don't remember when I got any of the corals and if I guessed, I could be 10 or 15 years off in any direction as I don't keep records and have a lousy memory.

If you forget the E-Books and only take physical book sales, then that would make around 143 sold books.

Yesterday for the first time in my life I ordered a fish on line. A copperband. I am not getting a good feeling about this even though the fish is coming from New York where I live but the stores here are not open and I want to replace my copperband that died probably from old age.

Buying on line costs about 3 times more for that fish than I normally spend but I am not caring about the cost, I am more concerned that I can't see the fish before I buy it, especially a copperband.

I just hope they are not quarantining or medicating it because to me, quarantining and medicating a fish, especially a copperband is the same as killing it.

We will see and I hope it goes as it is supposed. I know a lot of people buy fish on line so I may have to get with the 21st century. At least until the LFSs open around here. :rolleyes:

One of our LFS's just posted that they got a shipment of fish in and have apologized in the ad for the high price. The supply chain is pretty broken right now.
