Getting my son (8) to put down his video game feed the fish (its his only daily chore)!
I have to remind my husband to feed them most days. As a mother of 2, I’ve come to learn that husbands and children have a lot more in common than I realized lol. I’d feed them myself but I’m somehow allergic to almost everything they eat.Getting my son (8) to put down his video game feed the fish (its his only daily chore)!
Consider using aquarium tongs and grabber . I do and it grabs everything like a robotic arm keeping your arms out of the water and placing everything where you want it. With a deep tank, I cannot do without them.I have a big problem. I'm too darn short! At 4'10" it's really hard to reach the bottom of the tank to adjust coral or rocks, I have to shove my whole arm in up to the shoulder and my tank is only 28g! Even worse, I haven't been able to find any gloves that fit and I try to avoid sticking my bare arm in there. If anyone knows where I can find a pair of full coverage gloves in toddler sizes please let me know!
@mcarroll and his sticky saved most of my tank. Lost all lps but softies survived. So my tank is softies now. Am happy with that.**** Dinoflagellates!!!! Been fighting it for over a year. Took that tank down and moved the coral to my qt tank after a dip in coral rx and a week later dino started in my qt tank. I just received my bottle of dinox guess I’ll try that and if that doesn’t help i don’t know what I’ll do. I’ve read the thread on here about dino. Didn’t lots of different things but kept coming back
I had a huge allergic reaction to blood worms...Literally took me a couple days to connect it was related to the tank...(I'm allergic to pretty much everything but not to that extent.) Happened every night about the same time (eye membranes would swell and crazy itchy, hard to breath -ended up using the nebulizer as well as my fiancés inhaler) I was literally sitting in the emergency clinic parking lot (after stopping at the drug store for eye drops) when I realized it was getting better--out of the house/tank for awhile.. needless to say I check all my food now for blood worms... On a side note-they are the larval stage of "midges" that everyone says don't bite and are harmless, but I kept getting "bit" by them (pretty sure they just landed on me but my allergy made it seem like a "bite") Allergies are horrible!I have to remind my husband to feed them most days.
