    Clowns trying to be hosted by my Duncan

    So my big female clown (Mable) has decided to get close to the Duncan. I heard that they liked them and apparently this is true with my fish. Now the funny thing is my big Sailfin seems to be mimicking the clowns by getting into their old spot of star polyps. It was so funny over dinner watching...

    New virus today

    Well I was surfing the net when bang I got another "virus protection warning" scam virus. It locked my whole computer down. Even put a nice full background on my main screen that warned me about virus protection and how they steal identities and so forth. So I went to my trusty malware file that...

    I hate to admit but its true. Im lazy.

    Well last night I was looking at my tank and saying to myself that it just doesn't run like it use to.

    Maxima under T-5

    Well that says it. I want to put a Maxima in the tank but I know with that lighting that a bottom placement is pretty much out of the question I would think. So what about a mid or upper. I feel very confident that placing it at the top would be fine and I have a place in mind. However I also...

    Well it happened. I officially became impacted by corporate america today.

    It may not be as bad as it first sounds as some jobs are being eliminated while other new positions are being created. I have been a very high performer for the past 5 years and a very good track record prior to that so maybe that will be enough. A few prayers and good wishes are always welcome...

    Sailfin Tang

    Sailfin Tang - can someone tell me if this fish will fade with color due to aggressive behavior or is this strictly a stress related change? I should say that it appears to be an aggressive behavior to me as I see it if it were stress it would stay that color??

    I guess I am a grandad?

    So I look in the 8 gal tonight and I have about 12 Nassarius snails all over my rock work. I guess not having a light for a few weeks left them with nothing better to do.
