I need to get a powerhead or two so that most of the crap ends up in the same spot. The way I'm set up now, my water movement is stronger in the upper half of the tank. They've been on my list of things to buy for awhile. I want one for my Rainbowfish too, but just for their amusement.

A crack is all they need. I taped up every little hole in the back. The girl at LFS said eventually they will calm down and spend most of their time at the bottom of the tank. As it is now, at least one is usually patrolling the top. I have to wait for him to go away before I open the lid to feed. It only takes them a sec to get out when they're that close to the surface.

SF mentioned that for some of the process, the water is so low it's not an issue. I could do the vacuuming after I have already removed a lot of the water, lowering the level to the point where it will be hard for them to jump out.

When removing the water, before vacuuming, I'll try hanging a towel over the lid to cover the cracks, and hopefully that will keep him in.

Crap, now I have to do a water change, no more excuses. Except CHRISTMAS is my excuse. No more water changes until after Christmas. We just did the rest of the tanks a couple of days ago.

Jodie will NOT put it back in, I don't think lol.

Wow, that's busy! We have no family in town, my parents live in Florida in the winter and Jodie's folks are 8 or 9 hours away in Elliot Lake. Thank God. So it's just the three of us (as always). Jodie just got home from work 2 hours ago, so she'll be asleep all day. She's off tomorrow, so we're having Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve, and then Christmas day she has to be at work at 6pm. Then she works every day between Christmas Day and New Years, inclusive, except Dec 30.

So it's going to be a QUIET and boring holidays around here, with the exception of tomorrow and Christmas morning.

Jodie would love a seafood dinner. I'm a weirdo, from Newfoundland, but the only seafood I really like is scallops, cod and my favorite, cod tongues. Nothing in a shell for me. Fish & Chips is about it.

Your husband coaches a lot, do you have a kid on the team? Charlie went to his first hockey game when his cousin was in town playing a month or so ago. It's a shame the World Junior games are on at 4:30am most days. I was looking forward to watching with him. We can watch the repeats but with the internet it's impossible not to find out the score before you watch the replay.

I can't wait for turkey tomorrow and for gift opening Christmas morning. We blew so much at the fish store in November (and even December a little) that Jodie and I aren't exchanging gifts this year, we spent it all on the boy. Tonight after he goes to bed we're going through his old toys and scrapping a lot of them. We just finished givings bags of them away. Thank goodness for kijiji, that's where we get almost all of his junk.

I was in St Johns as a child, until I was 8, and then we moved to Steady Brook, which is just outside Corner Brook, on the way to Pasadena. I went to school in Corner Brook.

Ever since I got the new camera, I have been trying to get a good pic of the Hillstream Loach. I have tried several times and failed, as soon as I approach the aquarium he goes behind this airline that ruins the shot. Same as the Red Tailed Shark. Now that I have a flash, I might be able to get him, but he takes off as soon as he sees the camera and hides behind driftwood.

The Pearl and the Leopard aren't shy at all, and I inadvertently got a good shot of them both, with a bleeding heart:




Still trying to get a decent photo of the Bristlenose. Seconds before this shot, he was on the cave, and was super visible. Another one who is camera shy. The ropes LOVE the camera. I'm watching one on the livestream right now, showing off.

Your not exchanging gifts? I hope you got her something at the very least as you Know she will have done. Women think they're sneaky. But they're not. Haha
