Lively Rocks and Cardi Check-in

There's not a huge amount to report with the actual tank.

One great thing about Radion lights, which I haven't seen anyone else mention, is the different light colors highlight different things on the rocks (CSI style!) There's a point in my lighting schedule where the blues come down and white & red ramps up to mimic the sunrise/sunset. Although it doesn't look as pretty as the usual...

Argh! Flood!

Posted 01/23/2012 at 08:30 PM by Aaarrrggg (Aaarrrggg's 144g Half Circle Dream)

Well I had a bit of a disaster yesterday...

It's hard to make out in the pics, but the floor is covered in about 1/2" of water. It completely floaded the utility room and extended into most of the surrounding rooms, although thankfully not too far into each.

It actually could have been a [I]lot[/I]...

Getting to know my Bangaii Cardinals

Posted 01/14/2012 at 05:53 PM by Aaarrrggg (Aaarrrggg's 144g Half Circle Dream)

Isaac & Miria (Bangaii Cardinals) have been coming out of their shells in QT. They're quite picky eaters, but will happily except the larger meaty bits in frozen food, especially when it whizzes by them in the current. When my father-in-law met them he said they look like "Italian Piranhas!"

They were spitting out more food than I liked, so I started spicing it up with a little Garlic Xtreme & Selcon.
