Today after visiting family out of state, I am back home, settled and ready to tend to my tanks. This morning I made water, did a water change and cleaned the glass in the fuge. My salinity has crept up slightly so will gradually decrease it in the coming weeks.

Guardian, the ywg has grown a lot since I got him. He has developed that endearing (at least to me) grumpy face that bigger watchman gobies get. Perky, the rescue Percula looks fat and sassy. Molly McQuire is showing his age, or maybe the .026 salinity is hard on him. Normally I keep it closer to natural seawater.

I plan to work on the display when the lights come on shortly. The glass definitely needs attention.

Back to the grind! Sounds like your fish are fat and happy!

They are doing well. Today I had some time to sit on the sofa and just enjoy watching them now that the glass is clean.

I am thinking about doing feather duster worms again. I have always had a fascination about them. They are such a unique creature and I was having good luck with the last ones I got until I tried to move them. Where ever I put them or they move to will be where they stay this time around.

I'll be couch-bound here myself shortly. Looking forward to the show!

Feather Dusters are cool. Good luck with them, if you get 'em!

I probably will not do anything drastic until an aunt we are helping is done with cataract surgery. She will have a multitude of limitations that may actually require me to stay at her house for a week. Both eyes need done and they are a month apart so I will be tied up until the end of Feb so nothing new til then.

My rainbow nem divided again. Rose bubble and rainbow bubble nems seem to divide very readily. I had a sebae anemone for years that never divided and this nem has divided at least 4Xs. Both nems look healthy and happy. I like them and they stay confined to the pinnacle of the stoney coral that they reside on so it's not a bad thing. I just wonder why it happens. Of course there will always be some mysteries in regards to our tanks.
