Just teasing!

It's all good. Titan came died from a bacterial infection a few days after I bought him. I managed to isolate him in a breeder box, but he passed within 24 hours of isolation. 😓

 

I noticed the extremely large wild-caught mandys don't seem to last long. The last large one at the store died there too.

My mini carpet nem bleached several weeks ago. 😔

 

Yesterday, it vanished from the rocks and I presumed it melted. Today I found it on the Zoa Tower, in the shade, facing away from the light. I truly hope it recovers in time:

It still has a lot of pink left, but it used to be really vibrant shade of red. I'll have to move the UCs so that they don't get stung or melt away.

Need to do a WC on this tank soon. I think I've delayed it long enough.

Morning, Deb. (It's morning here now lol. 😅)

 

Feeling a bit better. Keeping myself occupied by doing a *lot of pet work. I spent two hours setting up a new storage bin cage for my new hamster, Mocha, yesterday. Having a backache today:

 

20210517_182315.thumb.jpg.dfe44259d0073911d6de140dccc6f3cb.jpg

 

I got him around ~6 days ago. He's technically still a baby, but pretty huge for his age:

 

20210516_193804.thumb.jpg.e559127eff70d375300e9415c0a3cd80.jpg

 

I have another hamster, Kiwi, which is a different type (winter gold dwarf hamster) :

20210514_141027.thumb.jpg.5ca4fc6a0353598c59050c15a11744e6.jpg

 

I made this platform for Kiwi myself: 

 

20210514_141005.thumb.jpg.02bbd91fb7362146b824da57df6eb29e.jpg

 

Mocha's different - he's a syrian hamster and his species is much more larger. 😊

 

(Sorry for going off-topic, but I just wanted to share something different than my reeftank(s) for a change.

This is my albino hedgehog, Snuffles:

And this is her set up:

20210405_132714.thumb.jpg.039974bdd920c3f6b30e56c80e88e48b.jpg

 

I'm constantly finding ways to improve it. Mostly I just rotate toys in and out of her cage. 

 

Believe or not, the nanoreef remains the highest maintenance of all of my pets, including my other aquariums. 😅

She actually uses it as a digging box. She loves to dig, so I set up a small box with colorful pom poms for her to play with/dig at night. 😊

I finally did an 8G WC on the tank today. Before WC:

 

IMG_20210522_123913_711.thumb.jpg.f7f65298062d7827b36588b0b06b9b71.jpg

 

Right after WC: 

 

20210522_132035.thumb.jpg.22ac23d1dc8e88b7e0e6ec5ec614fd7d.jpg

 

Few hours after WC:

 

IMG_20210522_161108_055.thumb.jpg.2c7ff5fd55650cc2d29968d7257d1c42.jpg

 

As usual, I knocked over 2 sticks (the forest fire digi mini-colony & garf bonsai) during the WC, so I had to stick them back. The acro was okay, but the digi was in contact with the duncan for a bit so it lost a small patch of flesh at the bottom. 

 

I also fragged my radioactive birdsnest into 2 smaller frags because the bottom was apparently STNing (didn't realize until today). 

 

Some of the corals were quite moody, but they should be back to normal in a few more hours. 👍

The lighting was a bit dark when taken from this angle, so the colors are darker than usual. Otherwise, it is slightly brighter, but quite colorful. I like it a lot. Once the lockdown eases, I'll pick up my pre-booked zoas & palys from the shop. 🥰

Took several pics just after I turned the lights on for the day. Here is a more accurate (color-wise) snapshot of my blue hairy shroom with mild yellow highlights:

The mini carpet nem is still bleached, but it is very sticky & receptive towards food, so I'll try to nurse it back to health. 

 

Also, Hunter says hello! 😊
