This is our office fish, Hannibal. He started out with other fish, but within a couple weeks was the only survivor.

I know this is supposed to be funny but it’s really not. All the other fish died because they are kept in a very incorrect setup; they died a painful death due to ammonia poisoning and Hannibal will as well if he’s not moved to a proper home soon. Common goldfish like this one are pond fish and they are not supposed to be kept in a bowl. A little bit of research could have prevented these fish deaths.
For more information on why goldfish can’t be kept in bowls, check out this article. I hope you guys will consider rehoming Hannibal. There’s plenty of people with ponds who can take in a single goldfish.

Day 57 (December 10, 2013) Update

Glossostigma has really filled in in the foreground. A trim is due. Most of the stem plants have died back because the riparium plants are blocking out light.

The riparium plants are doing REALLY well, with the exception of Spathiphyllum sp.— it’s a really slow grower and it might mean the death of it since the plants around it are starting to block out its light. The Asclepias curassavica is already past 20 inches (51 cm) of height. I want to trim it back but it’s flowering right now and I wanted to see that first.

Chum Salmon | Oncorhynchus keta

“Chum aren’t great jumpers, relative to the rest of their family! This makes their migration especially arduous as obstacles that other salmon species can overcome can stop a Chum dead in its tracks.” -

Arctic Grayling | Thymallus arcticus

“Arctic grayling, Thymallus arcticus , are found throughout most of the mainland in the Northwest Territories. They generally inhabit only those lakes and rivers with clear cold water. In large lakes they stay close to rocky shores and near the mouths of streams. Their most distinctive feature is a large and colourful dorsal fin. The back is dark purple or bluish-black, shading to silver on the sides (speckled with a few black spots) and white below.” -(by Fish as art)

So from the sounds of it earlier this week, you guys want to see me make a video of how I change the water on my tanks. I’m happy to do that, however, it’s not going to be any time soon. I have two weeks left at my house before I move to UGA and one of those weeks will be at the beach. So not any time soon. Sorry, everyone.

This is also my annoincement that I’m headed to the beach tomorrow morning. I believe the house has wifi, so I should be able to hop on once a night and queue up some stuff for the next day as well as answer messages, but sometimes you never know with this kinda stuff.
