How to stock a fish tank

Whew. I've been sitting on this one for a while. Finally got it published!

When you are in doubt don’t hesitate to ask a more experienced aquarist.

Tanks update

Just an update and some current pictures of all of my tanks.

My tanks: 22 July Update

I probably won't be able to post for the next two weeks. I've got an overload of work this week, and then I jet off to Sweden for 10 days. Hopefully August will be filled with more blog posts than July was.

Thanks, Bacon! It's a way to combine my favorite hobbies: fishkeeping and writing.

New post + bad news

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to post again. Since I made my last post I've been worked to the bone, traveled to Europe, and grappled with computer problems. I'm recovered from work and travel, but the computer problem persists. I recently got a new computer, and Firefox isn't working with Blogger. It worked just fine on my old computer (which was also a PC and ran FF). Until I can get it fixed (I'm contacting google about it now), I have to borrow someone else's computer every time I post.

My most recent post is just some thoughts on future pond construction.

So ya. Still haven't fixed the problem with Blogger. I'm hoping this doesn't continue forever or else I'll have to find a new place to host my blog.

Have a new article up. Nothing informative. Just some pictures of the Visitors to my pond.

Blogger is still giving me problems. I guess I'll just wait for an update of FF before anything gets fixed.

I did a different kind of blog entry today. Jewels of the Rift Also it's about cichlids... something I don't normally talk or think about. Thank you Tazman for showing these to us.

Still having problems with Blogger, but I'm determined to not let that slow me down. Another article today.
