If I spend anymore on my credit card it will only be good for
scraping. I agree with Carey, I definitely can find more aquarium stuff to buy
I've had the lights off for 2 days now. Seems the flying strings have diminished somewhat. Since the lights have been off my elegance doesn't open much (understandable), however I look in the tank with my flashlight & on his underside is a "growth", at first I thought it was aiptasia but am not sure. It is coming out from his underside "shell" & not growing where the other tentacles are. It comes out in a stem like fashion then at the end of the stem it has tentacles that form a pretty dang good circle. I don't know how many tentacles but to guess would be 10-15. They are not really long about 1/2 inch and the color hmmm, not quite creme, not quite green, kinda in between.
I will try to take a pic tomorrow.
So at Walmart today, I grabbed an algae cleaner, yep, stupid me, looks like I need to find another use for it, like say stirring the fire in my next pitfire.
Off topic: Got dr appt tomorrow, it's bout 15 miles or so, I have my granddaughter (3 1/2 yrs old) again tonite & is going w/me (her brother is at home, having surgery in the am), am thinking to try to stay off roads, it's gonna take me bout 2-2/12 hours on bike hauling her in trailer. So gonna leave at 8am-ish stop for breakfast. Have to be there by 11. Her mom thinks I'm nuts, but I haven't been on my bike since Sun when I went 38.51 miles round trip with some friends & got rained on pretty much the whole time, (I froze too).
Tomorrow nite I have to myself again sooooo gonna try to unhook the canister and see what it looks like inside-tried the other day & did it wrong and got water all over LOL.
Oh & last night while doing my spying inside my tank, I FOUND A CRITTER CRAWLING. Am thinking Copepod or something, it was like the last one. So woohoot there's still life under my water.
Also, I still have everything I bought up north. Don't know how they are still alive with that pH being 8.7/8.8 this whole time, as I've not been able to lower it (haven't really tried cause I don't know what to do).
Time to go spy & get some sleep.
