*hugs* Pata, I'm sorry things are so hectic for you. It's too bad your parents decided to lecture you. A lecture sure can put the damper on a day in a hurry.
Hatsune, well, I'm still here so I guess I'm okay. :)
I was going to rant about finding those dreaded camallanus worms in my platy. I got her out of the community tank and into medication an hour ago. She was clamped and listless and I thought for sure I was going to lose her sometime in the next week. But I just checked on her and the medicine is already working! She dropped a worm and is already unclamped and swimming about. So my rant turned very quickly into an anti-rant. Yay!
