Cured Sickness or Unlucky Molly

We had our latest acquisition, the Black male Molly, die on us this past Monday. Found it hidden behind the treasure chest, under the tank filter and tucked under a fake plant.

I swear, it's the 3rd or 4th one to die on us in a row. GF™ is insistant on a so-called even number of fish. I'd rather follow the hints and not bother as the worst the remaining fish have been was a small bout of ick this past weekend/week.

Speaking of, on Sunday GF™ insisted on putting a dose of Ick Clear in the tank as she saw a big white dot on the Creamsicle Molly and thought it was ick. Doing so required us to take out the tank filter due to it coming with carbon already inside it. I saw that it was close to being plugged, so I tossed that one and got a new one ready to go. After 48 hours or so, the fish in question looked fine and thus I put the new filter in, which would have been Wednesday, March 26th.
Will keep an eye on tank filter and replace as necessary, noting here when completed.

Interviews *crosses fingers*

Well, last Thursday I interviewed for a position at a really small company up in Lindstrom. I sent a thank you letter after I got home.

No response yet, but I shouldn't be surprised as the position is calling for knowing C or C++ computer programming.


Just got home from an interview for a company up in Rogers. I sent a thank you note as soon as I got home as well. I am to hear back by next Wednesday if I have moved on to the next stage in the process.

Hope I do.

Can't keep 3 Mollies

Just found the Black Molly dead behind the treasure chest. It had to have died overnight as none of the fish had started to eat it. It probably helped that it was in a hidden spot of sorts next to a plant and underneath the tank filter as well.

I'm glad there is no snow in the summer

Called down to Canterbury Park today and found out that only those in the MVP club they have can call and reserve a table on March 29th for Opening Day of Live Racing. Everyone else has to wait until the 30th. So, GF™ and I went down to the track this afternoon and signed up. We also bet on a few races from Bay Meadow & Santa Anita race tracks.

Hopefully, it's first come, first served on reserving the tables and not by the number on your card or that you need points to reserve a table. *crosses fingers*

New fish or Balloon Mollies suck

Got a male Black Molly this morning to replace the Balloon Molly we lost last Saturday. We'll see how it goes.

Also learned that Swordtails are not Mollies but are their own species themselves, though they will crossbreed with Platies.

We definitely are never getting Ballon Mollies again as it seems they can't handle stress or something. The two or three we've ever had have died on us not too long after we brought them home. And thus, they suck.

With this, it seems we now have three Danios, three Platies, two Mollies, a Swordtail and a Plecostmus. Two more Danios and we'll have a Fibonacci tank.

I called it

We picked up a new fish today, but we got the wrong sex.

We picked up a female Silver Balloon Molly.

We've never had Balloon Mollies survive with us before, so we'll see how this goes.



Just found this one upside down not moving with a couple brown spots on the body next to a fake plant. It was dead. I used the net, grabbed it and once I determined it was dead, I flushed it down the toilet. Had it been just seriously sick, I would have frozen it to put it out of its misery.

New rule: No more Balloon Mollies.

D-I-R-T-Y or Algea, algea everywhere

As previously noted, we picked up a female Silver Ballon Molly from the store after freezing the previous male Silver Molly.

This brings the ratio of female Mollies & Platies to male ones down to 5:1. Hope he's happy.

Also, I have noticed that the Balloon Molly has become less balloon-like in the past few days. Could it be something that happens while in the store or is it just how she looks through the glass on the tank.

Curious

A site I go to for job searching shows a number between starting the search and showing the results. These are the number of jobs available. I've been noticing this number trending downward as of late. To keep concrete evidence, I will start tracking this number each day.

For today the number is: 1,182,290

We are down to just one male of either Mollies or Platies, so this should keep him happy. Plus, with our big momma Pineapple Swordtail Molly, things should be fine, but we'll see.
