Hi Dawn,
 
latest video looks great as usual.  I love the way you can keep that algae such a good red.  
 
Sorry about Boaz.  :(
 
Grand kids ... hopefully I'm still pretty far away from that stage.  :D


Hi Mark,

I don't think its any particular skills that I have that keeps the algae so red - its probably just good rich pony poop that does it, LOL.

I still feel sad about Boaz but when I realized that I could have lost all 3 ponies then I recognized that I needed to be grateful for what I still have. To keep an aquarium is to always run the risk of something unforeseen and I have accepted that responsibility and risk.

Ha ha my friend, I suspect you are perhaps closer than you know! If memory serves me correct you have a son close to college age. Those college years go fast (well all except the paying for it part) and 2 of my sons married the same year they graduated from college.

Hi Dawn, I just finished reading through this thread, what a gorgeous tank this is! The tribute to Adam is really beautiful and touching. And I love all your seahorse decor around the tank itself :)
Sorry to hear about Boaz :( It's so sad to see Eve's and Ruth's reaction to his passing.
 
Congrats on the grandchild!


Thanks yoshii! This is the 3rd tank I have had in that spot of our livingroom and it is definitely my favorite. I love how overall it and its accomadating furniture fit with our house. I love the way the scape looks with the lighter painted mural behind it. I love the dimensions for seahorses. I did not expect to love the bare bottom but with it being painted it looks acceptable and I really love how clean I can keep it for the ponies. So I couldn't be more pleased with the results.

Yes it was sad to see Eve and Ruth act like that when Boaz passed. I was sad about him too, so I hurt for them as well. They grieved but then they seemed fine after that. I look forward to ordering 2 more ponies in the spring. My system can comfortably hold 4 and I just love their unique personalities. Seahorses are always welcoming to new ponies unlike other fish that are very territorial.

Thanks for the congrats on the grandbaby, we are excited!

Dawn, are you going to the Mike Paletta meeting on the 21st?


Yes, I am planning on it. Would you like a ride?

Thanks for the offer. I'll check, but I'm pretty sure I have one. See you there!

I am training Dave, my hubby to take care of my ponies while I am in SC taking care of my son and daughter in law's family when they come home with baby. Dave is nervous but he will do fine.

Well folks, baby Kolette was born last night! The first little girl in our family. I hope I know what to do with a granddaughter? I guess I will teach her to ride motorcycles and keep seahorses, ha ha! Seriously though, she is beyond precious. :-)

On another good note my vet gave me a script for diamox. Its a medication that could have helped both Adam and Boaz if I had had it. It actually is used to treat glaucoma in people because it lowers pressure but it helps seahorses lower the inbalance of pressure in their internal parts compared to the water.

I filled the script for Diamox so now I am prepared should my seahorses get GBD in the future. Its not a sure cure and it is more effective if it is caught earlier. Having the Diamox on hand can help me begin treatment as soon as I suspect that is the problem. At least now they have a fighting chance.

I really wanted to hear Mike Paletta but my foster grandson's mom's memorial service is tomorrow at 5 pm in Charlotte, so sadly I will not make the meeting. :-(

Congrats on the granddaughter Dawn.

Thanks, I am pretty excited. I will see her in person tomorrow.

Would it have not been easier to just put a piece of paper or cardboard that looks like sand, rocks, etc. than actually painting?

Perhaps it might have been, but you know how it goes, I didn't think of that. I did know that I never want a glass bottom so I figured if I did not like this then I would add sand.

Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that.


Yes, its so very sad for the boys. They still had not processed that she had lost her parental rights and now an even bigger tragedy. Its heartbreaking.
