Ecotank & Lotus Fish Tank Site

Welcome to my blog!

This weblog is my online journal. You'll find my opinions on fishkeeping and probably a few rants about idiots that kill their fish needlessly because they don't listen to others. When the spirit moves me, I may also include longer articles on DIY stuff as well as new fish stuff and general info.

Wow, is this still here?
Yea, it's been forever since I've posted, that's what working 20 hrs a day will do to you. Hopefully I'll find some time to add a new post or article soon....only time will tell.

San Diego Fish Club Meeting
Lotus and I ran down to the San Diego Tropical Fish Club meeting last night to catch a program about fish rooms. Definately some good info that will be put to use as we enclose the patio and build our own fish room. We will still have the planted show tanks mostly in the house, but as I've gotten more and more into breeding, this just seems like the logical next step.

The San Diego Club is definately worth the time for a visit, and their November auction is a must attend event as they literally have 50 times the amount of items up for bid when compared to our small club in the desert. I'll add more about the fish room talk later, sorry it's been so long since I've posted but between work and the fish, there hasn't been much ME time lately.

Well it's been a long time since my last post...simply been too busy lately. Here's an update on the angels: Took 50% of them to the club auction but that still leaves us with about 40 angels. Had to move them to a 55g tank as they are getting big. Here's a picture just before the move.
Also picked up some very pretty gold rams...unfortunately we lost two of them to infection, but one is doing fine and looks great.

So Busy
Well no time for new pics or anything of real value today. The angel fry are really growing great and will be ready to start selling or giving away soon. We also had a batch of cherry shrimp bless us with quite a few little copies recently, so the next Desert Fish Club auction should have plenty of stock!

New Loaches
Well I made the trip up to Seattle once again on business, but I did have plenty of extra time for a trip to the Seattle Aquarium and then the local fish stores. I ran into these Batik Loaches and they begged me for a plane ride home, so here's a pic :)
