Jumpin' Jawfish Batman!

Posted 03/01/2012 at 05:54 PM by Aaarrrggg (Aaarrrggg's 144g Half Circle Dream)

Well it seems I might have spoken too soon about my "happy" Jawfish. A few hours after posting last, I heard a loud "plop" come from the tank. I went over to find Kululu sitting on the sand looking agitated after presumably jumping out and bumping his head on the plastic edging at the top of the tank. Well at least my jawfish defenses seem good enough to prevent carpet surfing!

The next day he was nowhere to be found in the tank. Growing increasingly panicked,...

Blue-Spotty fun... (Part 2)

Posted 02/09/2012 at 11:56 PM by Aaarrrggg (Aaarrrggg's 144g Half Circle Dream)

The next day I came down to find that Kululu had toppled one of my arches. I had cemented down most of the rocks, but evidently not the ones he had decided to start digging under <sigh.> The one circled is supposed to go up here...

He looked really smug in his new epic rock fort.

Blue-Spotty fun... (Part 1)

I didn't want to put a Jawfish through the rigors of failed burrow making in a QT; so I decided to order one from Divers Den where they at least have been though some QT already.

When my 5pm DD alarm went off I was out having a nice meal in a restaurant with my husband. I apologized and began the customary frantic page refreshing; expecting it to be updated within a few mins as it usually is. A LOT of refreshing later and finally the selection changed at around 5.30pm... Whoops....

I've been mulling over what fish to get next. I was getting close to pulling the trigger on a [URL="http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=15+23+83&pcatid=83"]Midas Blenny[/URL], but then I realized it was just because I was pining for a Blue Spotted Jawfish...

I'd previously ruled out a jawfish because I'd assumed my sandbed wasn't deep enough. Well while I was...

The Cardinals are in, Pods and IPSF Critter Update

Posted 02/09/2012 at 11:11 PM by Aaarrrggg (Aaarrrggg's 144g Half Circle Dream)

...and they're IN!

There was a bit of a scuffle when Guybrush (♂ Clown) and Miria (♀ Cardi) went for the same piece of food ...score 1 Cardis... but other than that, things went smoothly. In the last few days Guybrush has even taken to swimming alongside the Cardis and Marley has been letting them surprisingly close to her nem. Yay!

The lump on Miria's lip went...
