We have a baby Flowerhorn!

We just got him ♥  His name is Mojito.  We got him locally from a guy who had a few beautiful different ones in his collection and he let us have this little guy.  He said he is a Super Red Dragon Flowerhorn.   Obviously he is pretty stressed in the pictures since he just moved but I’m sure he’ll brighten up some x

We have him in a 55 Gallon Corner tank until he gets a bit bigger, then Nikki and Helen will upgrade and he’ll go in something else.

Isn’t he adorable ♥♥Mojito♥♥

Just stopping in, we’re on the move!

Well Nikki and Helen are moving tomorrow, to my new place.  I had to buy an aquarium stand for the tank AND PUT IT TOGETHER MYSELF!!  As the table that the tank is on now no longer belongs to me or them! 

I have a friend from work coming tomorrow to help me move them, it is only close so won’t be too bad for them hopefully….  Cycling is going strong right now, typical that it waited for everything to go completely crazy to start but I’m keeping up with changing about 15 gallons of water everyday… even if it kills me!!  (Because of everything else I’m trying to do at the same time)…

Anyway I can’t wait to get my chubby little fish to their new home, I don’t move until next Saturday but I wanted to get them over first so that when the big furniture move is done they don’t get lost !!!!  Lul…

Nitrites, finally!

I don’t even want to guess how long this has taken, let’s see my first blog post was December 4th and I’d had the aquarium about a week at that point, and yesterday 8th Feb, finally seeing nitrites.  Now due to the whole eggs situation I didn’t want to mention it yesterday, I did a water change as usual and today the nitrites are back up to where they were.  I did another water change.  I have been doing 40% a day since the Prime fiasco.

So here we have our nitrites at 0.25, I am obviously going to keep on top of the water change situation more than ever now so that my goldfish don’t suffer…

So all this joy and advancement and yet so much sadness, myself and my longtime girlfriend are splitting up.  It is for the best but with much devastation and heart ache..   I will be taking the fish, I need to get a stand to put the tank on but yes it seems everytime there is something really positive there is so much negative so hopefully this is going to give peace to both of us.. it’s just really really hard to let go of someone you still truly love.  So sad…

Eggs, eggs and more eggs!!

I have had fish before, they were tropical fish and never experienced this.  When I looked in the tank this morning to see Nikki and Helen I thought something was wrong because of the way they were acting, faces down on the bottom of the tank together flitting.   I immediately put the light on to find…  Yes thousands of eggs!

I’m sure they will gobble them all up (they had better gobble them all up)!! Anyway here is a picture and a quick video of the ongoings… Yummmy eggs!!
