    Probably the only superpower I'd get from Sparky is the ability to shock people without having to rub my feet on carpet first. :D

    No copper pipes. I never thought of that. That's a good thought. A lot of people like shrimp so good pipes would be a must.

    *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.

    Come on, lottery ticket don't let me down . . .

    We could start a housing community with a huge central pond in the middle of the development. And every house would come with a big fish room as a standard. :D

    :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*

    :3 They are doing much better. Still skittery but when they know it is mealtime, they are waiting under the food ring. Any other time of the day, though, I usually can't even find the little brats. Koichiro has even taken to nibbling on my fingers again so hopefully hand-feeding won't be too far behind.

    They aren't used to this routine, I guess. I tried to give them a feeding at noon but they wouldn't come. Silly fish.

    3 times. Got it. I'm up feeding the cats at 6:30-7 AM and then again at 7 PM, so it'll be easy to sneak a third feeding in there in the afternoon. Thanks, Izzy!

    At 76F I would feed them three times a day. Some sites say to feed them as much as they will eat, but I've found mine like 3 feedings a day. Plus, I'm not up early enough to feed them 4 times a day. ;P

    Oh, I was going to ask you. The water in the koi tank/pond is about 76. Should I be feeding them more than twice a day then?

    So many fish, so few tanks. But I'm a little worried about my so-called coldwater community. Since it's in the garage, I can't regulate its temp. It's 84 F right now. D: I have the bio-wheel and a bubbler going for oxygen but I still feel sorry for the dojos and WCMM. Supposedly this heat spell is going to snap soon . . .
