Found a red tiger molt yesterday, so here are Taiwan vs. Red Tiger molt shots, you can see the dark microbes in the Taiwan molt and that they are difficult to see in the Red Tiger molt because they are not stained dark blue from pigment. Under a live scope, the microbes are at approximately the same density between the two molts.

One more.

Here's a rostrum shot of a molt. Next time I fish out a molt, there is something I just discovered about molting I will try to illustrate, pretty rad. I never realized it until I started staring at these pictures!

Click on the image to see it bigger, iff'n y'want.

Kinda reminds me of the next world's tallest building, in Dubai or Kuala Lumpur or some such place where tall buildings sprout up.

Yep. DK's pretty much LAZY today. She was going to post some updates, but, alas, she's too lazy. So instead, here is some eye candy she shot this week, to tide y'all over.

Part of it is that Jr. Geek here is wanting to make her a website, so she has all this chatter in her mind going on, composing essays on how shrimp can count, read, and measure. Stuff like that. The other thing is she has to paint some windows over the weekend. Just the thought of that is sucking up all her energy.

She's not a very good photographer, so, well, you get whacha get. But DK enjoys staring at them, so she thought y'all might, too.

What she loves is that they are pictures of stuff she has done. She loves to grow things.

Great shrimp pics! Enjoyed!

WHAT!? Painting windows on Labor Day weekend? I think that's illegal.

Diggin the molt pics! If time and opportunity present itself, could you do the same with black tiger and dark blue tiger?

How's the solar power handling the summer?

That's gonna be one boss website!

If success or failure of this planet and of human beings depended on how I am and what I do. How would I be? What would I do?

Well, so far, oil-based primed. Maybe painting tomorrow. I'll keep an eye out for molts in those tanks, but I often miss them because those buggers are on them the moment they are shed, and devour them in very short order unless I happen to see it happen.

Solar is rockin', although the Shrimpzone runs a startling amount of time to remove tank heat.

Yeah, well, we'll see how Jr. Geek does. It's going to be low-maintenance design as DK just can't see diverting focus to things like that, and Facebook, and Instagram, and such. She's busy GROWING SHRIMP.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!

This picture represents the parts that are left of a failed unit, this week, that resulted in a DISASTROUS EMERGENCY for DK. Two bits of silicone tubing and hose clamps.

As you may recall, she was to be painting windows over the holiday weekend, which she did. They were not re-installed, however, one night when one of those RED weather cells moved right over her house, thundering and lightning-ing and sending water into her plastic-covered screens where the windows were not installed. She got busy attending to that, and the next morning discovered that the GFCIs throughout the house had popped, and the power surge that did it apparently fried a very vital piece of equipment.

She had to drop everything this week and research buying a beefed up replacement unit, which is supposed to arrive tomorrow, and yet USPS shows NO DATA on tracking, yet!

GRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

Sometimes, three-word groupings are everything.

I love you.

Marry me, please.




NO... NOT THOSE THREE WORDS!!!

DK's talkin' about:

"Out for delivery"

"It has arrived"

and

"Under beta testing"

I can tell you I think there's a gonna be very little sleep, tonight, in DK's world.
