A coffee pot can be a coffee mug if you just don’t fucking care
Dear, I’ll stay gold just to keep these pasts at bay
To keep the loneliest of nights from claiming you, and
To keep these longest of days from waking you
For I felt the greatest of Winters coming, and
I saw you as seasons shifting from blue to grey
That’s where the coldest of these days await me, and
Distance lays her heavy head beside me
There I’ll stay gold, forever gold
Today I’d like to post about how spoiled my damn fish are.
First off, they’re all doing great. Cicero of course bit off all of his tail. But the others seem to be doing just fine. All of their tanks are filtered and cycled now. I’ve started converting all of their old filter media to chemi pure because I like how damn clean it keeps the water and how the fish seem to thrive in it. Winter is coming down here and the heaters are working 24/7 keeping their tanks at a toasty 78 degrees. Not one has come down with any sort of illness what so ever and that’s a pretty good considering I have 11 bettas (12 including the poor little guy from walmart, who is also doing great even if his temporary tank is less than ideal.)
I usually feed them live brine shrimp when I get it in. But on my last visit the LFS had run out. So I bought what I thought was the package of regular brine shrimp only to get it home and open it, realizing it’s baby brine shrimp. Now I know BBS is for fry, but after reading up on it and learning about it’s high levels of nutrition I decided to try my damndest to put my purchase to use. After all, I’m not made of money and I’d dropped 5 bucks on this stuff.
So we have right here one of my successful attempts at making my own (tasty) foods for my fish. I heated and mashed several peas with a tiny bit of garlic and 1 cube of the baby brine. My fish proceeded to devour the hell out of it. And their digestive tracts will benefit! As do their taste buds because shit if fish don’t love the fuck out of garlic, lol.
Spoiled ass fish.
the contrast pleases me
