  4. Hi all, Chris here... My Buster has hurt himself... 😱.... Sometime overnight Buster managed to get himself stuck between the skimmer and the tank wall...😯. I found him this morning and rescued him... The only actual injury I can see I’d the leading edge of one of his pectoral fin is broken... But this symptoms are an unwillingness to swim, floating upside down... Due to his unwillingness to swim I added a glass box to the tank for him to rest in and to avoid floating at the top and damage of being exposed to air.... Pictures will be attached...

  9. Chris here... Thank you Koko! I’m on the hunt for 2 larger rubber maid tubs... Were the trash bags the big black ones for sealing the tank up? Or the white Kitchen type? I was thinking of Just draining the tank and leaving it empty while the house is empty... but I always do 100% water change each week... So I’ll just leave the old water in the tank and water change it before I bring the boys home... I was concerned that I would have to do a major sterilization of the tank it self... or that I would have to get it totally out of the house during the tenting.... 75 gallon tanks are pain to totally relocate and then bring back... heavy beasts... I told my Hubby that 75 gallon is as big as we will ever go.... Huge difference from a 40.... πŸ˜±πŸ˜‹πŸ˜±πŸ˜‹ Hugs, Chris
  10. Chris here.... πŸ˜‹ Hi Kokonuts, I need some advice please.... πŸ™ƒ. In the near future, our home is to be tented for 3 days for treatment of termites... It will be some type a gas treatment... Dang it.... I need to get the boys out of the house. I know that I’ll have to put them in more than one tub, and some how protect all their media... My boys are pretty good size. Their bodies average 4 inches, nose to peduncle (not including tail fins). Their tank is a 75 gallon with 2 AC 110’s, 1-4” sponge filter and 1-5” sponge filter. So here are my questions: 1. What size tubs would best for at least 4 day stay? Assuming that each tub will have to support 1 AC 110, 1 sponge filter and two of the boys. 2. I need to know how to protect the tank from contamination... I will drain and remove all the decore... But the tank itself... Do I need to get it out as well? If so, would it be fine outside on the patio? Should I wrap or cover it with something to protect it from the elements? Or will it be too close to the house while it’s being treated? 3. When resetting up the tank.... Do I just do a good cleaning with vinagar water of do I need to do a bleach rinse before I reset up everything? 4. Should I delay bringing them home after the House is treated? (Letting the house air out for a few days???) Your advise is greatly appreciated... Hugs, Chris. 😍☺️ Pic is not the best, but you get the idea.... πŸ˜‹
  11. Chris here... My heart hurts for you MJ.... It takes a lot of energy to care for broken babies.... I have been caring for two for the last 2 years, lost one of the two in April... I think that be cause we invest so much in them it’s harder to loose them...
  12. Chris here.... Fishy tank maintance day!!!! I cannot believe how much my boys love to rearrange the Tank after their house is cleaned... They love to push the faux plants around and rearrange the glass pebbles that I pile in the corners... They do not even have the courtesy of waiting until the next day to rearrange everything.... within 2 hrs of be put back into tank after cleaning, the redecorating begins... πŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ. Grrrrrrr.... 🀣
  13. Hi! Chris here... MJ, Yes! That is Nautilus.... He is an Amoonklein baby all grown up... Alas, I lost 4 of my babies in a freak accident.... My precious Hindenburg was one.... I missed my rolly polly so much that I now have an new baby β€œButterball”. hopefully he/she will grow up to have a goofy personality as all my other babies.... πŸ˜‰πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‰ Hi Fastlane, Thank you! For you kind words.... The tank rests on a 24”x54”x3/4” finished plywood covered with a black plastic table cloth placed on a two drawer lateral file from my husband’s modular desk... my 40 gallon tank fit perfectly on top of the file base, But due to increased size the 75 gallon we added the plywood to support the larger size. So far it has worked perfectly in supporting the increased size and weight... πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ MJ, Here is are pics of baby butterball... πŸ˜„
  14. Chris here.... Finally came up with a name for my baby pearlscale.... Butter Ball!!!
