Saltwater Tank Updated January 29, 2013


As many of you know my saltwater tank didn’t fair too well when the power went out. We ended up loosing most of everything inside. We had to start all over with the fish and most of the corals. On Sunday we went to the fish store, Coral Reef, in Knoxville to stock up on new things. This is the best saltwater store in the area. Fins and Skins use to be my¬†favorite¬†but sadly they went under this year. There is another store called the Aquarium, but I am not a fan. I have been in there many times and have never been asked if I needed help and many times I did. Coral Reef, there are always there to help me and answer any questions I have plus they have a huge selection of fish and corals.

So, here are my new additions to the tanks.

2 Firefish

1 crab

2 snails

1 Green Goby

1 Algae Blenny

Candycone coral (the bright green one)

and some Zoanthus, green and pink corals

Cleaned out the fish tank. It is a bit cloudy due to the chemical I added to increase my purple algae.

Garden is starting to produce vegetables very well.

A half moon this week! I was able to capture it in my telescope very well. This picture was taken just with my smart phone not a DSLR camera. I was impressed!

Miss Heidi Cat. I never get a picture of her. She is scared of the camera.

I was looking for the dog to put them up before I went to work. I guess they have learned my work¬†schedule. Mom in scrubs = nap time, they were in there waiting on me ūüôā

Got into my car to drive to work and this was on my windshield wiper. Yes, that is a snake skin! I about died.

This is a picture of the star Vega. It is in the constellation Lyra and is the 5th brightest star in the night sky. Fun fact Vega is 2.1 times larger than the Sun!
