I usually sleep but am never truly refreshed (a side effect of my illness) but last night and the nigh before were different levels of frustrating heh. Oh well, maybe tonight will be better!
I don't understand why parthenogenesis causes genetic discrepancies either, it makes little sense. I guess it really is a "last resort" reproduction mechanism inthe wild that is just more observed in captivity... or something. I don't really know.
Yeah, we buried Gaia with Spectre and Creeper. I cleaned Terra and Firma's enclosure out today and hooked out another 7 eggs which is nice, I'm also hoping and praying for strong babies. I've got a few carnivorous plants I'm looking to sell so I'll get those sorted before I start selling eggs, should give me more time to rest and read about eBay's policies again.
Hehe. I was able to do the water change with the help of mum (bless her soul) and it only took 5 minutes, also took the plate out. The wood is still floating a tiny bit but it's safe now and won't uproot anything.
It's interesting, I have a moving bed filter in Kaze's tank that is running like a dream so I would assume that the filter I built into the other aquarium would have worked just as well (if not better). I love these things, so relaxing to watch.
Thank you for your support
