Oh hon. Pretty sure I read somewhere that you're an international student. Preparing to go home for the summer?

Yea I'm from Asia too ._. so I can't just pack the babies and go. Glad I met awesome people on here that stepped up to pet sit though

EDIT: LMAO I SENT THE WRONG FISH. I have Sapho and the girls as we speak, and sent Cobalt away instead! Oh my holy goodness finals week has made me unable to recognize my own boys XD

That's such a shame that you're separated for the summer. I get antsy just going away for the weekend sometimes.

Being separated from beloved pets is just an ongoing theme in my life. 9 months every year I'm also away from my dog, Diamond. When I see my dog, I don't see my fish. When I see my fish, I don't see my dog. Hopefully this whole drama ends next summer when I fly the dog over. It's surprisingly, almost sadly, easier than flying a fish over.

So Diamond lives in your home country?

I live between cats I've kept for years, and my hamster & fish, but at least I can visit my cats whenever I want because I live only an hour and a half away from them. I don't want to imagine what it would be like not seeing either for a long time. The longest I've been separated from the cats is three weeks.

It's pretty crazy, but it does make me feel better when I imagine what life would be like if I have Diamond here in The States since the get-go. First of all I wouldn't have fish, and second of all I'd probably pull out all my hair within a month LOL on the flip side, I also can't imagine having my tanks back home where the parents scrutinize even the way I breathe. It's bad enough that I'm fully aware I lack impulse control LOL to this day, they still think I only have one Betta

In another news, to stay on topic, I was thinking that it's WC day today when I realized I just did WC last night. Because I thought yesterday is Monday kinda nice how I don't have to do WC today, but now I worry if that will hurt my plants... since they eat nitrates. They must hate my paranoid WC schedule lol do hope the Flourish-Excel-Osmocote Plus combo would make up for it

What started off as a 25% WC for Paris turned into 75% and 45 minutes of work on his divided tank. Intend to do the same for Nami sometime this week, but for today just WC. Also spent a bit of time ensuring quarantine is ready for it's new occupant coming tomorrow!!

My flatmate walked in while I was fiddling with quarantine. Luckily she provided me with the perfect excuse when she asked, "Are you moving Nami into there?" (She knows I've been planning to get Nami a new tank because I hate it!). So I just quickly said yes haha I want her to be surprised when the new boy comes!

Trimmed the moss in Speedy's tank ,( it and the other plants in his tank have gone nuts since I got the new light),and transplanted it in to Spud and Zorro's divided tank - adding more and new plants to that now I've replaced its light with the same type of light as speedy's ,only been a week but a big difference already!

So happy I could cry! I didn't technically DO anything with my tank other than test it...after three weeks of no change during my fishless cycle, I suddenly had a nitrite spike and my ammonia's dropping! I was beginning to think that I was just not meant to have fish, lol. Now I'm more excited to get some plants and decor! Eep!

Orca's temporary setup is three plastic plants and fine black gravel .... not much, but I am planning on getting him some driftwood, real plants and a shelter tomorrow. I'm a little worried about those plastic things tearing those lovely fins of his, so the sooner the better.
