Rest of Your Aquariums:
Too many to count, can we say MTS...?
How I got started with aquariums.:
I've had an aquarium of one kind or another almost continuously since I was a kid. Most of them are currently in storage after a major move. Can't wait to get them all up and running again!
Favorite fish:
all the pretty ones
Fish I have bred:
Do guppies count, when they breed like rabbits?
Why I like fish::
They're fish, they don't judge. What else do I need to say?
Best advice:
Don't impulse buy: research your fish before you bring them home. And for the love of fish, cycle your aquarium BEFORE you put the fish in...
Other pets:
2 cats: Honey (Maine Coon) & Ysabeau (gray tabby)

Let's Get This Fish on the Road

by cajunqn81 on Yesterday at 11:40 PM
The Betta Berth has been up and cycling for a little while, but full build-out was on hold due to repeated weather delays. I delayed ordering my plants, with the intention of getting their arrival to coincide with the delivery of my new lights. The lights were supposed to have arrived last Wednesday or Thursday, so that my plants could ship Monday when there was supposed to be a break in the weather. What do you know, they didn't make it. Due to all last week's snow, the lights didn't arrive til

Fishy Observations

by cajunqn81 on 02-22-2015 at 02:47 PM
Of course when you have an aquarium, you're going to watch your fish. Perhaps for relaxation, like one would enjoy a work of art. Perhaps as part of our routine check for illness or injury, or to take note of interesting fishy behaviors when they're living in something close to their natural biotope and with other fish from their native community. Regardless of the why, over time certain fish begin to stand out: fish with their own unique personalities and quirks apart from the rest of their school,

Thermal Regulating Pet Beds as Applied to Aquarium Temperature Control

by cajunqn81 on 02-18-2015 at 08:01 PM
A while back one of my aquarium journal threads temporarily diverted into a discussion on thermal regulating pet beds, which require no electricity, might be used to control aquarium temperatures during an emergency situation like an extended power outage. The theory behind these beds is based on the basic heat transfer principle of heat flowing from areas of high concentration to areas of low concentration. If the pet is warmer than the bed, heat flows from the pet to the bed, warming the bed and

Farewell, Spot

by cajunqn81 on 02-18-2015 at 12:08 AM
I thought I was finally making some progress. I installed a new light and new heater, put up a nice black background, and largely rescaped my 30g tropical community. And then, just when I felt I was ahead of the game, Spot went to the great fishbowl in the sky. There wasn't much warning. At the Sunday morning feeding, he was fine. Not two hours later, he was floating upside-down, struggling to swim, and his condition progressively worsened through the day. Somersaulting. Twitching. Not eating. We

Three Cheers for New Stuff & New Fish

by cajunqn81 on 02-01-2015 at 02:44 AM
The first delivery of parts for the Betta Berth arrived today, bringing my current setup to: tank, thermometer, heater, and filter. Mr. Cajun finally picked up the shelf brackets and PFS too, so I've got substrate to put in as soon as I get the new tank cleaned. And I finally, finally, found the perfect piece of driftwood. If I'm lucky, I can start putting pieces together tomorrow.

I also made the complete rounds of all the local pet stores and LFSs, compiling an up-to-date list of
