Ugh. The nitrates in the pond are ridiculous! When I tested on Saturday, they were 80 so of course, big water change. I tested again today and they were 40! Another big water change. Not sure how I can keep the nitrates down. I can't afford to get enough Kent's Nitrate Sponge to treat 300 gallons every 2 months. o.O
Oh! That's another good thing. More electricity. And no copper pipes. It can make rearing inverts a little difficult. One of my goldfish buddies has problems with copper to the point where her goldfish can't take it and she has to use RO. I would so live in this complex. And maybe have a natural swimming pool with a few goldfish in it.
I'm not sure if you would get luck from rubbing Sparky, but I'm sure you'll get something. (My boyfriend's answer to this would be superpowers, like how Spiderman got his.)
*jots things down* fish room . . . R/O filters . . . lots of outlets for electrical equipment . . . I tried my hand at lotto scratchers and won $12 and two free scratchers. Maybe I should rub Sparky for good luck first.
:3 I'm looking forward to them getting bigger and friendlier. I still miss being able to see all of them like when they were in the 55gal. *starts dreaming about a giant pond full of huge friendly koi*
