Poor old lady has a birthday this week so I didn’t want to correct her. 😄

Dammit where's the middle finger emoji quick response??!!

 

 

 

Actually I DID remember it was @WV Reefer's crab that got dried, but I figured since Tang doesn't know that story, the comment would seem convoluted and confusing. My mind is actually a steel trap, thank you very much.

#RIP to the dried crab.  I remember reading that thread but missed out on the ending.  

 

I should have a little graveyard for our losses under the rose bushes.  Some will be an empty grave (Chad), but I have found a few jumpers who somehow find the smallest opening.  I did once put up a missing poster for a fish around the neighborhood which has an elementary school.  The fish never came home.

Welcome back to my version of Kliff Kingsbury's underwater house.

 

When I moved in, there were peeps squatting here already.

 

Here are my first best friends - Pennywise and Sideshow Bob in their anemone Bev.  Bev has been pouting since the remodel (guess she liked the wood paneling).

Pennywise and Bob received three more anemones and they split their time between them.  Here is BJ and a group shot of us!

Bermucci and Barkles

Maybe Bev is upset because she doesn't like sharing.

 

I can't swim in or touch the anemones.  But I wouldn't mind being a clownfish as they are super fun to be around and they swim so pretty.

 

Here is my other instant friend who doesn't have a name.  He is somewhat boring which is probably why he hasn't been named yet.  He just kinda hangs out and doesn't really swim with me.  I still think he is great cause we all have that low key friend.

There was also an urchin.  He would knock rocks over which upset TK so he was given to a local club member who later texted NOLADT and said he was strong.  Makes sense since I would hear the urchin going around asking "Do you even lift?"

Next round I will introduce you to the friends that came after me.

@Ratvan.  I originally wanted to name the pair "mortal" and "venial" (types on sins) but NOLADT looked at me like I had two heads.  Which I'm sure this comment did for those reading. 

 

Cardinal sins, other types of sins.  Meh.  

 

But Richelieu was in the similar theme so maybe you'd get it.

Ooh.  Pope Urban and Pope Clement reminded me of St. Euphrosyne and St. Uncumber. 

 

Great references but definitely too cerebral I'm afraid.  We shall see what E-fin decides to go with as recommendations come through.

Ah well we were talking sin. Who's more adept at sin than Dante? That got me thinking about Angels and Demons and popes. I couldn't remember the schism popes so I had to look them up.

With the Corona Virus in full swing, the Tank Keeper and I have been laying pretty low, trying to do our part in preventing spread. Our state officially went under a “Stay at Home” order today at 5pm.  
 

Even though I’ve been working from home the last couple of weeks, the tank keeper has had to go in to the office. This leaves me with a little more flexibility, so I decided today was the day I had to venture out. I needed to get the 75w heater for the 20 gallon tank(it seems everywhere is sold out online). I didn’t want to take the chance of not being able to get my hands on a heater for the competition tank, so Covid be damned, I headed out. 
 

A couple of lessons were learned today. The most important of which, is if you’ve made a fish purchase without directly consulting with your tank keeper (even if it’s on the pre approved tank stocking list) don’t use the LFS rewards number associated with their phone number. Seriously. Pay cash. Forgo the rewards. Hope the fish hides for a while to buy you some time to come up with a plausible story on how it got in to the tank in the first place. 
 

Long story short,(I know, not really, I blab. A lot.) the fish is in the tank, and I still have a pulse. For now.

Just do what I did for Billy Ballsack Chin... These four little words are magical. "Babe. Don't be mad.

Not a ton to report lately... In Calcium, our competition tank, we’ve noticed at least three, and possibly 4 crabs with more hair on their legs, than I have, and definitely more than the tank keeper has. We’ve also seen a couple of porcelain crabs. Attached are couple of photos of the more cooperative crabs.

They are all cool looking! There’s an even larger one, than these two, that doesn’t come out enough to get any photos of yet. I think he’s just camera shy, because he forgot his razor back in the Atlantic Ocean.
