Do people read these things? Let's find out. I am bit bored today as the wife is back to school and I'm not yet back in school (assuming I get to go to school this fall but that is another story.) So I don't have much to do today so I felt like jotting a few things down for anyone to read if they want. I've spent half the morning staring at my aquarium. I've lost some corals lately due to poor light acclimation from my new radion xr30 and I am just hoping my scolimia pulls through because it is a real gem and would be prohibitively expensive to replace if I lost it and wanted a new one. My SPS corals are loving the new light and my anemones had a mixed reaction to the point where one crawled into the overflow never to be seen again and the other (its clone mind you) looks better than ever. My clownfish are still separated but they aren't mature yet so its not unusual that they haven't properly paired. I've had to move my Duncan colony because it and my Hammer colony were growing too close and the Duncan was going to lose that battle. Its the only remaining coral I have from before the ice storm in 2013 So I would rather like it to continue to thrive. If anyone wants any clarification on any of this feel free to ask but I have a feeling I won't get any takers there. Most people don't actually care about coral beyond thinking it looks nice. Few can tell the difference between coral and anemone in most cases, even most of my fellow volunteers. When I volunteer at the aquarium most people are much more interested in Dory and Nemo than Paracanthurus Hepatus and Ocellaris Amphiprion.
I may go attempt to do some art but I have less motivation to do that without my wife to help guide me on that front. I've already cleaned the house and I am just bored now. Well if anyone is interested enough by my ramblings I always love to meet new people. Maybe I'll get into a regular habit of blog entries just to track things.
