So any new plans for the tank since you've filled it to the top?
Nope, All the plants in there are the ones I had before.

Lol! I had to double check just in case I did, but I said plans not plants!

How did you your little puffer take the upheaval?

Oh LMAO PLANS! No not really just the same as before eventually add a few more puffers and shrimp once my Java moss has gone big enough.
Would eventually like more plants as well.
The puffer seemed ok and still does. He ate really well today!

Ohh Haha I just figured out how to photobucket on my phone!
My phone goes nuts sometimes and it won't let me upload pic on here but I can to photobucket. Though I couldnt figure out how to get the link until now for the pics

Here is what the cat did to plants in the basket she mashed them and shredded some if them.



Tomorrow I am going to see if I can "save" the ones left.

Man. . . John, I'm so SORRY!!! Ug, what a way to end a peaceful night. All things considered, the tank looks pretty good! So glad to hear that He made it through none the worse for wear - again. That lil' Puffer is really a He-man fishy!

THAT DARN CAT! Ooooh, what a brat! And the look on his face - typical cat. "HOW DARE YOU GET ME WET!?" Don't you love how they always manage to turn the tables like that when they get in trouble?

Grrrrrr. Is he just trying to get a drink, but the water level is too low and he slips in? I know you have and have had (lol) other tanks that have glass lids. . . does he leave those alone? I'd be so worried that he'd crash right through the glass! O.O

The cat has always been one of my main concerns with having a glass or an open-topped tank, though my cat has stopped getting on top of the tank since I gave each and every toddler in my care their own squirt bottle with instructions that they could go to town on him if they EVER saw the cat up there. They did. Stopped pretty quickly after that!

Kudos for somehow making the tank look good after such a fiasco. Poor John! Poor Puffer! Poor plants! NAUGHTY KITTY!!!

LoL Jes your right Cameo (the DEVIL CAT!!) was looking at me like HOW DARE YOU GET ME WET!?! YOU EVIL HUMAN!! I have no clue why she gets up there or what she was doing!???!? My other cat Peaches (oh btw *I* didn't name the cats. That's ALL my wife and daughter! LoL) would just get up there to lay because the lights and hood was warm. I broke her of doing that after she broke my hood (Glass canopy).

Thanks the tanks was just throw together really fast as it was late like I said already and I my back was really starting to hurt after dumping so much water. It took many many many trips dumping water from siphoning the substrate! Plus I was obviously limited to what plants I had. On the flip side my water sprite should take off now as it isn't getting pushed around in the current as much. So I think it will look even better when it fill up the top and starts putting off roots.

Just a quick update. Today I did a water change on both tanks and took some water sprite along with Hornwort out of my 10 gallon and put it in the 29 gallon tank.

Just a Rant. Don't have to read but have to post it!

Ok this has nothing to do with my Dwarf Puffer or my Scarlet Badis tank but I jus *need* to rant/ or just talk about it.

Right now I am twitching pretty bad, I haven't had any nicotine for 48hrs now !!!
I decided last week my wife and I *HAD* to stop smoking as we simply can't afford it anymore. I wore patches for like 2-3 days but decided those were too much also! I have been cut back to just 40hrs a week. I haven't worked just 40hrs a week since i started working here over 10 years ago! A 40 hour paycheck really sux! After all the bills are paid that just leaves $171 week for me and family to spend. That has to buy everything we have to have in a week soo we have to make that stretch pretty far! Thats barely enough for food and gas a week. Some how we have to make that stretch for pet supplies too. Not sure how to make it work!?!?!

My wife and I have cut out everything! No more smoking, no more eating out, no more last minute impulse buys, no more unneeded anything! This really suxs and is a real eye opener!

At some point my schedule will be 36hrs one week and the next 48 but I don't have a clue when this will happen. So when that does we will have a lil extra breathing room. Plus I get a raise in April which will help some. Man oh Man this was really unexpected. If you know me at all you know my work schedule has been really messed up to this point. Working like 60-70hrs a week every week. Those days are over and part of me is glad but the other went wait a damn minute! That's where I made all my extra money from. SOOOooo what do I do now??? The last 6 weeks I have worked nothing but 40hrs a week with the exception of one week I worked 50hours. Now the time at home has been great cause I have only been working 4 days a week and have usually had Friday, Saturday, and Sunday off. So have had time to spend with the family. On the downside I finally get time with my family and no money to do anything!! That part just really sucks!

I know some of yall have heard this already and I am sorry just skip over this post! I am just stressing and need to rant! I think it most has to do with I am really am jonesing for a smoke right about now and have nothing to stop it except typing on here! So you are just going to be stuck listen to me talk away about anything and everything come the next couple of days untill these twitches stop. LoL

WHAAAA!?? You? Only 40 hours. . . O.o Dude! I hear ya! While I want to say THANK GOD that man is finally getting a break, that's a HUGE cut in hours for you. I'm in a similar boat, so I understand - losing one of my daycare kids has us really scrabbling to make ends meet over here, too - only difference is that I still have FOUR ciggies left ;) Once they're gone, I'll be feeling your pain! Hopefully the raise in April is a good one. It seems so unfair - when you were working soooooooo many extra shifts to cover them while they were struggling to keep employees. . . you nearly killed yourself! Sheesh - give a guy a break!

Hang in there, man. I just think of all we have that SO many others don't - even with things being tight. . . we are blessed!
