"An Ode to the Aquarium"


Hello to all my new friends..
Please tell me if I‘ve got this right
I don’t think I can spend yet another
Sleepless night

Gotta have that bigger tank
You know the one
Some creative home furniture rearrangement
But we’ve only just begun

Ammonia, ammonium, Nitrites and Nitrate
Let ‘em rise and let ‘em fall
It was all greek to me
Now I major in water chemistry

New and pretty light kit
3 to 4 watts I presume
Ah, I’ve got it just right
It lights up the dining room

Iron rich substrate
Arrange the new rock for the 100th time
CO2 injection, GH, PH, KH test kits
What? Calcium carbonate and lime!

Back from town, again
Brand new slate and plant til there’s no room
Purchased macro’s and micro’s
Hey, I’m preventing an algae bloom

Now all is finally perfect, hah! never
We add the fish we can
Had to pass up some real beauties
But walked out hatching the “250 gallon Plan”

The moral of this story is
And I think you know new friend,
No matter what else goes on
This will never end

Because even if…..

It twas the night before Christmas
And no one else stirred, we’d know
There’d be one more poor and happy hobbyist
Sitting by the lunar light’s glow

And all you others, don’t feel sorry for us
Cuz you see
There’s an LFS gift card
Just waiting under the Christmas tree………

Can you say UV sterilization and a brine shrimp hatchery?

Thanks again,

Well said! Truly, I come here for the social outlet of others who understand my crazy obsession! This way I don't have to drive my husband nuts with all of it, he just gets to sit back and enjoy the product of all my hard work....and the advice of my friends here.

KUDOS to aquarium advice for bringing us all together!

My friend Rachel keeps joking about getting me "help." Sadly- she isn't always joking.
