    I'm sorry to hear that you and your wife have lost your jobs. I know that's stressful; I went through something similar once a long time ago and it was really upsetting. But in time I got a better job. I'm pulling for the two of you to find great new opportunities soon!

    Hey everyone. I know I've been away for several months. As you may recall I had lots of stuff happening at home, some of which is still ongoing. In all of this I've barely managed to keep up with tank maintenance, let alone with the forum. I figured it was time for me to post an update and (hopefully) start visiting regularly again.

    My tank has not been completely happy, but things are good considering my lack of attention. As you might recall, several months ago I started having algae problems because I had switched to a stronger light. I had managed to more or less control the algae by fertilizing to let the plants outcompete the algae. Well, in the past few months I managed to keep up with water changes, but wasn't very diligent with fertilization, which led to lots of algae once more. I finally turned off the light for 3 weeks, which made the algae go away but also affected my plants, which have suffered somewhat. I am now starting to fertilize again and have turned the lights back on. Surprisingly, though, my Elodea has done incredibly well, growing incredibly fast, and helping to keep nitrates down. I'm happy about that.

    The fish seem to be doing very well with no losses in spite of my "less than perfect" maintenance -- with the notable exception of my endlers. I'm not sure what is going on, but every so often one or two will simply disappear. No body or remains to be found, they simply vanish. The first time I thought I had missed the body, but after the second time I started checking the tank carefully twice a day for any dead endlers. I am now down to just 4, and have not found a single dead one! I have the suspicion they are somehow becoming lunch, but can't really imagine the neons or red phantoms being large enough to eat an endler. So, the mystery remains. Once I manage to regain full control of my plants and algae I will probably replace the endlers with rummy noses.

    I will try to more or less get up to date on everyone's journal, but don't make any promises. Some of you (cough-SLAP-cough) are much too large to even try!

    Happy to be back!

    What a pleasant surprise to hear from you again after all of these months!

    Good to hear that things are settling down enough where you can join us again, but sorry to hear about the endlers...can't recall at the moment if you have snails or shrimp, but if so, they're probably responsible for the disappearance of the deceased fish.

    Glad you are back, stay in touch!

    Goldie!!

    So good to hear from you. I had been wondering how your EI dosing was going as Natalia and I have been using that method with amazing results for the last several months. I'm sorry to hear of your battles with algae. I had the same problem with the Finnex 24/7, which was one of the reasons I had wanted to switch to EI.

    Sorry to hear that some of your issues in your personal life are still ongoing. I recently saw this meme and I had to laugh at how very accurately it portrayed my life. Hopefully it will give you a smile or two. Hang in there and hope to see you around!

    Wow...welcome back! Computer is down here at work but when I saw your email update I had to jump on the site to say

    Sorry about your algae woes and the mysterious endler issue (vote is the phantoms...big enough, though neons have been known to take adult Neo shrimp so could take an endler too).

    Hope you keep us updated...speaking of which, how is goldie jr's tank going?

    So nice to hear from you, hope life won't keep you too busy that you go MIA anytime in the near future.
