I just realized that I didn’t update you on how my fish supplies are working!
I told you that one of my filters was making a weird noise and that I called Foster & Smith to get a replacement. That was on a Saturday. I got the replacement on the next TUESDAY! I was so surprised! The return label, sent by mail, didn’t arrive until Wednesday or Thursday.
I have the replacement installed, as well as the Chemi-pure filter media. My tank has never been clearer! I should have done it a long time ago! The new filters are like wisper quiet too. I was worried that going from one filter to two would double the sound volume, but I don’t think it has. I think these two combined are quieter then my last one. I haven’t done water tests lately to see what my levels are like. I should do that tonight. I should really keep a record of what my results are. I’ll add a little notebook to my shopping list. I still need to cut down the extension pipes. I’m just afraid I’ll cut them down to much, and you can’t just slap that length back on. 😛
I think I said that I have ordered another Black Ghost Knife from my local fish store. I placed the order about a week and a half ago, and it still hasn’t come in, so that’s a little disappointing. I know I shouldn’t get my hopes up, it could very well turn out to be male, and then I’d have to wait some more. But now that I’ve decided to breed Cole I want to get started on it NOW! I know it will be quite a while, probably like a year, before the female would be breeding size, so once I get her I would still need to wait. And in addition some BGK don’t handle moves well, so sometimes they die within a week or so. I quarantine all my new fish, so that helps reduce some of the stress.
So here I sit trying to patiently wait till I get my new BGK……..
I’m normally a very patient person, but sometimes when I really excited about something I just want it now! I don’t want to wait, once I make the decision I want it to be done quick, quick, quick!
