. I like alot of the clown fish, but that one just stands out because of I like to two colors together. Plus at an LFS I was at one time, had different clowns of different sizes. And those just had me staring at them soooo there ya have it, they hypnotized me while I was standing there and said...BUFFY, YOU WILL ONLY BUY US...REMEMBER WE'RE THE MAROON GOLDILOCKS. and they said it over and over again LMAO.

Finally finished the last of the plumbing in the bathrooms and kitchen. Got whisked away just as I finished up at 6 and just got home. I still gotta do my light tonite. Wow gonna be along nite. Gotta be out the door for 8ish too. Come home round noon, scarf up the dog or the daughter and grandkids (the or is because dog won't fit with them so if they don't go he goes for a ride...WOOF WOOF) and drive 2 1/2 south to a fish store, then home to qt what I buy, cause I do plan on buying SOMETHING when I'm there, be it a fishie, coral, shrimp or snails, I'm buying something LOL,.

So Carey's Fish Day was today, gotta get over to her threads and see what she got. Tomorrow's my "Fish Day", stay tuned for what I bring home.

I'm not gonna get to fish store til bout 4pm. I'm gonna bring my laptop, is easier & faster than my phone so hopefully I can hit a hot spot & google anything I need to figure out before I buy.

So stay tuned....hopefully nothing pops up to stop my trip.

So my lights are on the floor again. I have drilled the hole in my ceiling and found that I didn't hit a joist. So now I get to go up into the crawl space and itchy insulation and install a 2 x 4 for support, well at least I've done that before (in a different and much older house). 5am, taking a nap. Gonna get busy at 8. Guess I'll be doing that later tonite after my fish trip.

Gonna set up my qt tank before I go just in case I come home with treasures woohoo. Oh would be nice to see a fish swimming around, instead of searching for my shrimps, crabs and snails. Wow that almost sounds like I have a disease LOL.

Well time to take the blankets, towels and lids off the tank that I used to protect it and hoist the lights back up there so when the timer goes off they are ready to go.

Obstacles and more obstacles but I'm plugging away. Gosh I hope my critters survive. I'm exhausted but I think I should do the water change while the light is off lol. Gotta run, check salinity again. Oh please be ready so I can get a nap in.

Later ya'll, have a great day. I know I will especially if I get a fishie hehehehe.

Haha same here. My friend told me that they were close enought to our school colors (burgundy and gold) and that I should get one for my 29 gallon. BUT if it got 6 inches, that would be so cruel. And I already have cloens in my other tank. MAYBE if I get a 55 gallon FOWLR. Hehehe.

Trip cancelled, so nothing cool today :-(

Set alarm wrong and woke up to bathroom, laundry room and kitchen floors under water up to my ankles!!! Wow was that a cold eye opener. Needless to say I wanted to nap for an hour cause I was making water and well go figure my 32 gallon blute was overflowing. So gotta find my shop vac manual online and see if I can find everything for it.

I only have just so many blankets and towels to lay on floors lol and that wasn't enough.

Aw heck I turned off the water, maybe I should just go back to bed and start over and let nature's evaporation clean it up.

Ouch. Bummer. Need to invest in a float valve. Pure Water Club has them. Make sure you get the cut off for the waste line too. Well worth it.
