Sorry I have been missing. I again was having health issues and fainting spells, dizziness etc. Come to find out I was severely deficient in several vitamins and having a severe negative series of side effects to an anti acid drug called "Protonix". I had gone to the dr and he had gotten me some vitamins as well as a b12 shot. The next day I got my protonix filled and promptly lost the bottle. I called and the insurance would not replace a lost bottle so I had hubby buy me some zantac to get me thru till I could refill. About 5 days after stopping the protonix I realized I could stand up without holding onto something and I looked up the side effects. Listed under severe side effects were fainting, lightheadedness, unsteadiness, etc. Bingo! My carelessness of losing the bottle had found the answer. I also think the vitamins have kicked in. I have spent the last month in a daze.



I have had two betta losses, both heater related. Unfortunately one was a guest betta of olivias. Her pretty butterfly male (who was no longer a butterfly but had who had gotten stripes) heater malfunctioned after a power surge and i came downstairs and his water was very hot, hotter than the thermometer could register. Unfortunately it was too late for him. I also had a heater trap my gorgeous show quality PK male. Boy that sucked. Three of my Apple snails have died for no known reason as well and they are spoiled snails. Other than that, all aquatic life seems ok.



Now, Butter cup! She, who I am almost certain is a "he" due to the pelvic bump i am seeing (I will try to get a pic later) is doing great. I have switched to a dechlorinator and water conditioner because she acts very agitated when i use prime. I need to switch to the 29 gallon very soon because I think she is nearly full grown and while "they" say they can remain in a 10 gallon, it's obvious she needs more room. She is well trained to eat worms from my hand and will float "standing" on her hind legs waiting as the bettas near her are fed or when she is simply hungry (she is begging as I write this). She still gets small worms and pellets and blood worms. With the AC on her tank is still hovering around 69. I would like it cooler but she is thriving and from what I understand, stability is more important than being simply cold.



July 21-24 I am going to one of the largest doll shows in the world. There will be teddy bears as well. I am meeting up with a dear friend who i have spent countless hours exchanging chats and gifts for years yet never met in real life. I have not been on a plane in years but show and plane tickets are booked, hotel is reserved so there is no backing out now. I am SO glad I have begun to feel better so I can actually enjoy the trip since I likely won't be able to repeat it! Not long now.



All 5 kids had their last day yesterday. I hope they don't spend a lot of time bickering this summer, lol.


Wow that's crazy about all the vitamin deficiencies, wonder what the cause is..? Do you eat well generally and get sunshine? Glad you lost that bottle lol! Sorry to hear about your two bettas , I'm very afraid of that happening, not sure how you can really prevent it.. That's awesome that you are going to a bears and dolls show!!! Do you make any yourself? A few years ago I was really into making bears, I made my own patterns and everything. I always wanted to go to the show in Pennsylvania but it never happened. I hope you have a great time, take lots of photos!!! here's one of the Bears i made many years ago.

Oh what a wonderful bear! I don't make anything, I just go enjoy. This show is in Utah so I am flying from MI.

The vitamin deficiencies are because I had Gastric bypass about 4 years ago. It kinda caused all my problems ulcers, etc but that's another story. I am the 10% that the surgery caused massive problems for.

So sorry to hear of all health issues but so glad doing better now. Scary how side effects of meds can be so detrimental.

Hate hearing of betta losses. That is always a concern of mine with heaters.

Buttercup sounds so cute!! Can wait to see pictures.

Every fish deserves a Chance

My last shipment of prilosec had the same side effects listed! It said can cause B12 and magnesium deficiencies because lots of acid is needed to absorb them. I hope you get to feeling better with all the extra vitamins!

10 gallons, petco king and community fish
1 x 5.5 gallons with shrimp and plants
1 x 5.5 male veil tail with plants

She had ick, she had fungus and her fins were only bone. Now she's fat and happy with skin covering her bones. Thanks for stopping by!

Do people seriously think that they'll get away with posting a ad for free stuff and once the person gets there that they'll charge them? they do know that people do have the choice of just leaving and not dealing with that BS

She;s really cute! I'm surprised she doesn't have any ammonia burns
