Thanks guys! The for-sale boy's copper is starting to bleed out in his fins, he's beautiful!
Girl went off to Retof and was late two days but finally made it safe and sound! It wasn't even the week of Thanksgiving, the post office was just being poop apparently! I sent out Saturday, expected for Monday and didn't get there till Wednesday! Thank god I pack my fish well!
I AM SO POOPED!
So, I started my job as a Dunkin' Donuts baker. I get to work at 2AM which means I go to bed around 4-4:30PM. It's a lot of work but now that I'm getting the hang of it, I'm kind of actually enjoying it! It's not as stressful as being up front but I do go up front once my work in the back is complete. We are one of the few Dunkin's that does bake all of our stuff: cookies, muffins, and bagels. Donuts come in plain and glazed and then I get to frost and fill them (I HATE JELLY DONUTS AND STICKS, THEY SUCK). The Boston Kreme Croissant donuts is probably my favorite to do because it's just fun. I like frosting the regular Boston Kreme and then Coffee rolls since it's just a nice big plain and I don't have to go around and ring lol. The ring donuts (donuts with holes in the middle) are more of a pain but I'm getting good at frosting them.
I opened the store by myself this morning! Fourth day and I opened by myself lol. Well, "opened", I started my baking at 2 and my help came in at 3:30 so she opened the front and I just got all the baking stuff done. Takes me until 6 to get everything fully done typically. Then we pull out more bagels to defrost for the 2nd bake later when we start to run out of stuff.
Today was crazy, because the Pat's won last night, we do the 87 cent medium coffee thing and my god, everyone and their mother, cousins, aunts, and uncles came out of the woodwork to get their coffee! I got to work the window which is fun though. One of my regular customers from when I worked at Del's Lemonade is now coming to this Dunkin' which is right down the street from the Del's and so I thought that was hilarious that we both attend the same Dunkin too.
But I am pooped.
Fish are all good. I have a pair of clowns now, waiting to get rid of my Mummichogs so I can get the rest of my fish eventually. Tank levels are great!
pH: 8.2 (still working up to the 8.4)
Calcium should be in the 400-450 ish range for some of the corals. My base level of Calcium is 380 which isn't bad considering my tap water has nothing in it. I added a bunch of crushed coral to the tank before because of this, it's helped out a lot.
My green star polyp has exploded with growth! Super happy about that! Have some Red Slime algae unfortunately (cyanobacteria in the saltwater world. In freshwater it shows as blue-green algae that everyone loves), but I just manually remove some of the algae and it's okay to manage. Not a huge explosion but definitely there. I need to get some macro algae for sure.
Betta's are all doing well. Fishies in the 45 are also doing well, did a nice deep clean to it the other day in prep for Thanksgiving at our house
Alright, time for my nap >.<
