In other news, my 1st and 2nd graders had a great ukulele and keyboard class today!

We are learning the melody line of Lean On Me on the keyboard, and playing the Am and C chords on the ukulele.

Also, I taught them the melody line of Sfto Kitty, Warm Kitty from the Big Bang Theory and it's one of t heir favorites!

This is not going well.

I'm making mistake after mistake.


UUUGH
SO THAT CRAYFISH
I finally took him out yesterday of the baby cray tank, and put him in with my bettas. In his own compartment obviously until I could figure out what to do with him. ......glass dividers, no way to jump or crawl over or anything.

I look today and my best betta is dead in the next compartment, and like.................... with only his head left.


Crayfish................. what the f man
Really sad, it was such an awesome betta too uuugh... double tail blue fish with a black laceyred tail.
I know I can't blame the crayish.... never had one before that was such a crazy voracious guy but...

Theres a slight gap thats a few millimeters where the glass dividers sit (its not snug but no fish is gunna fit through it) and I guess thats all he needed. Didnt really think that one through, underestimated him!

ugh man... i think the cray is making an example for the others in the tank... sort of like in the mafia.

sorry flo

Forgot to mention, these crays have a powerful tail so they can easily launch themselves across the tank and likely over the divider. Just be aware, if not for that, they would work all day to scoot themselves up and over.

Oh You have my condolences!


It's painful enough when they get sick. I can't imagine how painful this is for you.

I have had no power since two Mondays ago, and just got it back about 2 hours ago. No power = no internet/laptop = no TPT forum for me.

I am fine, thanks Albert. I lost two Oto's in one of my 5.5 shrimp tanks and like 2 or 3 shrimp, got everything going again now and just dripped in 50% water changes on my shrimp tanks. Doing multiple water changes on my 55 gallon for the next few days. If no one else is lost, I will consider myself very lucky.
