We're cautiously optimistic.

So far so good but we know we're not out of the woods yet.

So glad to hear there have been no deaths in the past day! I may not be on very much this week, but I'll be sure to check this thread when I am! Looking forward to more good news. :)

Thanks koi! Have a great weekend!

We were downstairs a little while ago and I could only see two Balas, but Jodie spotted the third in the cave on the left of the tank under the big driftwood. Eventually he swam out and joined the others.

No deaths again today, and no new signs of spots. No deaths or new symptoms in over 72 hours now. What a relief.

Took Charlie to the Santa Claus parade this morning. It was COLD. We almost missed it, they have it so darn early (in the year, not the day, lol) that I'm never expecting it. It was the first one he has seen. Jodie got home from work this morning and told us it was today, and it started in an hour so I just dressed him, grabbed a snack and threw him in the car. He was really good. As soon as we got home I went downstairs and counted the fish.

Before I realized what he was up to he went upstairs and woke up his mom to tell her he saw Santa Claus.

A big day for Charlie I can see why he wanted to tell Jodie My daughter works straight nights too she is in the health care field too they just got their puppy last weekend and she is home alone this weekend and working a night shift all weekend he hasn't been sleeping all the way thru the night so I hope the neighbours weren't up all night

Glad it looks like the worst is over and no more fishy deaths!!

I got my order and was going thru it today and instead of a 2 litre bottle of Flourish Excel I ordered Flourish Nitrogen which I don't use my daughter lives in Barrie and has to go thru Oriillia on her way home I am hoping when she comes up next weekend she can take it with her and exchange it.

Lol. When our neighbor first got his puppy a few years ago, when always knew when they would go out and leave him.

Hopefully you can get your Flourish exchanged.

Charlie is passed out on the couch, sitting up. This morning wore him out.

1st. congrats for the no deaths.... i am super happy to hear that.
2nd. YAY FOR CHARLIE! i know he must have been super happy to see all of that. though it is CRAZY early for that. couldn't they a little longer? thank god thanksgiving is on the 22nd. i think any parade before then would be just WAY to early. lol.
3rd. sorry for jodie. i know she had to be just dead tired. though i am sure she enjoyed hearing him tell her about all his excitement!
4th. i can't believe that your son still takes naps. lol. mine doesnt! lol. what i would give for a day when they did!

Well, it is always something. Charlie turned off our freezer, unbeknownst to us, and thawed all our food. So now we have to cook a ton of food that cannot be refrozen. The freezer is ancient but I think I have coaxed it back on.

ARGH! Charlie!

OH NO! that stinks! good luck on getting it all cooked up. kids never let you enjoy something very long. lol. it's like they have a 6th sense that something hasn't gone wrong yet. lol.
