It's picture time!

Posted 11/29/2012 at 04:07 PM by ACBlinky

Okay fair warning, they're low quality pictures from my blackberry, but... everyone loves pictures even if they're fuzzy, right?

Fish are here, hanging out in the QT. I got a pair of ocellaris clownfish, a yellow watchman goby, a longnose hawkfish and a kole tang.

The QT is being treated with Cupramine and the fish will be in copper at therapeutic levels for six weeks (unless they get sick!)

The display is doing well. I moved a couple of rocks around...

Curiouser and curiouser

Haven't updated in a while, so I think I should post about my recent adventures!

First water change

Posted 11/09/2012 at 10:47 PM by ACBlinky

Today I did what my husband calls 'playing with the aquarium'. Pulled stubborn bits of algae off the rocks, turkey basted the rockwork, re-adjusted the powerheads to remove detritus more effectively, and when the dust settled I decided to do a water change.

I wouldn't normally vacuum the sand, but last week I made one hell of a mess with my diatom filter -- I wanted to polish the water, but ended up accomplishing the opposite by accidentally spewing diatomaceous earth all over the...
