Cleaned, changed & everyone is fine

Changed 6 gallons of water today after skipping last week due to being at the cabin.

While the water level was down, I did as best of a clean job as I could and rearranged the decorations around. Didn't have to, but since I needed to clean the rock strata, I figured, what the hell.

Monsoon Season starts

We went again last night. Got there a little late and had to sit through the closest thing to a monsoon that I've ever been in for a few minutes. Turned the track from a dry, fast track, into a mud pit. Normally they rake the dirt between races, after the rain they were using giant squeegees to squeze the water from the track. The condition listed was sloppy all night long after the monsoon came through. We did get to view an almost complete rainbow from our seats. Saw both ends from our vantage point. Even saw a faint double rainbow off one side. Wish I'd had a camera with me to photograph that. A few horses were scratched in later races after that for obvious reasons. I would've hated to have been out in that torrential downpour when it hit.

Another good night, otherwise, for myself. Results for myself and GF™ below the break.

Changed & Cleaned H2O

Changed out 3.33 gallons of water.

Used the vacuum and a baby sock to clean a little of the rock strata. Did so until water was too cloudy. Sock really dirty. Had them black in the past, though. To do a complete cleaning of rock, will need to remove decor and take water level down to about half. Will have to consider doing so soon..

Replaced water filter with our final one. Estimate August is when a new water filtration system will be needed. Or start ordering from Aquarium Pharmacueticals through their retailers.

Opening Day & First Friday of Horse Racing Season

We went on Opening Day with GF™'s mother and, as metioned before, sat in the single seats on the Mezzanine Level, as they call it. It's the 2nd level.

Don't remember how I did off-hand, but I think we had a good day of it.

They have new fancy betting machines there which can take any new version of currency. Much sleeker than their older machines, which I think they are phasing out.

Delay or things just fine

Haven't posted in a couple weeks. Things're just fine. Work issues.

Changed the tank water twice. 3 gallons and 4 gallons each respectively. Replaced tank filter during second water change.

Fish appear just fine. One seems to be pregnant yet again, but we know these fish can have up to 5 litters or whatever the term is, from one impregnantion.
