Guess I needed to get past the Extreme Day hump.

Did much better this afternoon at the track. Had GF™'s mother along with us, so a good time was had by all.

Results below the jump.

Water change just before work.

Did water change and replaced 3 and a third gallons of water.

Fish appear to be fine.

Extreme Race Day

Went to Canterbury's Extreme Race Day this afternoon.

Since most of these races weren't normal, I'm not going to type it up as I normally would.

Everything below the fold.

Tank filter replaced.

Note: Keep track how often tank filter is replaced. May need to either return one fish or obtain bigger tank filter.

Day 2 of a Horrible Stretch

Went this afternoon after having received a Mystery Mutuel from Canterbury Park stating that it could be worth from $2 to $50 in free bets. Turns out it was only $2. Didn't help much except to cushion my fall on yet another loser afternoon at the races.

Night 1 of A Horrible Stretch

Last night wasn't lucky for me either.

Perhaps I'm only good early on, like May only.

Fish can be beautiful and annoying at the same time.

Stopped by PetCo this afternoon for new fish. Picked up 3 new ones after finding the two from last Sunday and the latest Plecostmus floating around or under decorations.

Acquired a Silver-Blue Male Lyretail Swordtail, an Orange-Black Female Lyretail Swordtail and a Chinese Algae Eater.

Did an almost-complete water change of 6 gallons, replaced the tank filter, vacuumed the rock strata a good bit and scrapped off the algea from the sides of the tank. Also moved the decorations around.

WTF is up with the Plecostmus?

Came home tonight to find our latest Plecostmus, dead at the top of the tank, attached to the side. Tried tapping and even nudging it with a net to get a response. Dead as a doornail.

I have noticed that the algea has really started to creep up the sides to the top as of late. I don't know what to make of it as I am not home when the sun shines on the only window in the room where we keep the fish tank.

Everything changed & done

Came home from the cabin and everyone appears fine.

Went to the store and picked up a Female Silver Molly & a Male Dalmatian Lyretail Molly. We'll see how they and the others survive.

Replaced 3 gallons of water and the tank filter due to using the Ick treatment.

WTF is going on?

Come home from work and I find a note from GF™. Says that the Swordtail has Ick. I look in the tank and I find that the Silver Molly has died as well. What the fuck is going on that we're in the middle of a fucking epidemic.

Too tired right now. Will probably do water change Sunday.


Happy 4th of July. [blows noisemaker and sets off fireworks]

What a way to start a b-day on

Come home from work and found the Plecostmus dead, floating at the top of the tank. WTF is going on. A thought would be that we have to start the tank over, but where would we put the fish in the mean time? Stress'd probably kill'em as well.
