If at first you don't succeed.......

CoolDude is fascinated with his first marine fish tank. It is wonderful to see him so focused and dedicated to 'his fish world.'
Unfortunately we had 2 more fatalities. Another 'hardy' sea anemone as well as his beautiful 'Dory' fish kicked the bucket! He was very frustrated and heart sore.
We had the water tested and it was perfect..... so we have introduced a shrimp and 3 soft corals ...... they all seem to be doing well. *holding thumbs*

Capturing Memories.

It's hard to believe that 5 years ago I embarked on this blogging journey. In those days none of my friends or family knew what a BLOG was and the only bloggers I met were from the USA. Things have progressed and now it seems like the whole world is blogging! Okay ... I exaggerate, but those who don't HAVE a blog are at least READING someone's blog!
Recently I have been less preoccupied with my virtual diary, but I hope to be inspired and excited to create more memories of my beloved family. For me that's what it's all about....... capturing special moments!

Wouldn't it be lovely .......

The words get a little mixed up towards the end ..... but still 'bloomin-lootly' cute!

How does she know this word?

"Mom.... Why does Selena Gon@ds (Selena Gomes) have such a rude name?"

Thank you WizzKid and CoolDude!

Sorry CoolDude ......

CoolDude got a fish tank for his 12Th birthday. He had been wanting an aquarium for a long time and after falling 'in love' with the beautiful salt water fish, he decided on a marine tank.
We got alot of advice from the manager of a local pet shop who seemed to know what he was talking about ..... well, that's what we thought!
Yesterday tragedy struck!!!
The sea anemone and soft coral that he introduced to his tank a couple of days ago .... died.
As CoolDude removed the sea anemone from the tank a clown fish nipped at his hand. Obviously the two had formed a strong bond and she was clearly angry that her new best friend was being removed.
NOW WE FIND OUT ....... after speaking to an expert on marine fish, that the lighting and the filter we were sold are far from adequate. *So frustrating*
CoolDude was upset but it was Miss Tanzi who wouldn't stop crying ..... "I'm crying for Cooldude," she sobbed.
SO..... the tank stands a little less full, but at least healthy since we got the dying creatures out. We have all learnt a valuable lesson ..... GO STRAIGHT TO THE EXPERT!
