Sooooooooooooo.

Is there to be a new thread, about how this room (which, I might add, has a SLEEK floor, unlike the soft, furry floor of German Shepherd hair clouds in DK's Shrimporium) came to be "centralized?":

(remember, DK hoards things, even like pictures...)

And while SOMEBODY is puttin' together a thread about a centralized system (sorta like IDEA COCAINE for DIY junkies like DK), let's go back to our adopted non-shrimp, non-German, not-even-a-dog, not the TPT forum member, not the vintage cartoon mouse, Speedie:

I never thought a turtle could have so much personality and energy. She will follow my finger back and forth along the glass like a dog chasing a stick. Not to mention she has eaten just about any table scrap I give her. She ate kielbasa for the first time the other night haha.

Back on track, your black tigers look amazing. I just got some oebt yesterday. Hoping I can keep them alive.
DK, who has an inquiring mind, really wants to know the story of finding a NICKEL-SIZED little itty bitty cutie turtle, and how in the heck you figured out how to feed the nickel. That must have been so cute, seeing a nickel eat, whatever a nickel eats. Pray, do tell.

******

And finally, NOT to be out-done by a NON-GERMAN mastiff, DK's goddog Rottie sent this picture:

Let me define central system..From my picture here,,there are only 6-20gal. tanks on a 40 gal sump with my prototype shrimp baby catchers on the sump....Far from being proven but getting close to finish cycling now.. I am hopefully going to consolidate 3 separate tanks into the system..Sure there are going to be some up and coming hickups along the way after I put shrimp into their tanks..looking to empty some tanks after the shrimp are moved...This little central system took me since late spring 2012 to mid Nov 2012 to get up and running ..Not a lot of time to do personal things when the construction season is going..

Early this morning, DK fixed the drainpipe to the heat exchanger, but was too in a hurry to snap pictures.

Lots o' activity in the Shrimporium, today.

DK stared at the Black Tigers a bit and thought more on this Overy Ebony idea.

She finds pigment variations incredibly beautiful, and loves the way they individuate, so you can tell each shrimp as unique.

When she gets enough, she's gonna do it. Mebbe by next fall

DK files this away, in the squirrely brain, for later. For one thing, it's the dead of winter. But mainly, her Black Tiger tank is currently in the Nitrate study and she doesn't ever mess with a tank in a study.

She has executive rules, she does...

Back to Rolf III. Here's another shot from today.

I think Rolf III is going to finish out a lot like the second picture.

The black/blue/vintage tiger blend makes such interesting stuff. DK thinks they are juuuuuust gorgeous.

Clancy thinks I'm insane trying to take a picture of the top of his head. He keeps shrugging out of the way. Across the top of the skull he's 8 1/2-9 inches.

And I totally agree about the shrimp! I love these. They're just beautiful.

OK, so... took me two days to do it, but I finally dug out a tape measure. This is LARGER than DK's corelle salad plate. The same size as a toddler basketball. The length of a standard box of Kleenex. I feel so sorry for those puppies' mother. How large was the litter?

******

IN OTHER NEWS:

DK is (see the space between these two dots: ..) this close to finalizing the schedule when Shrimptern 0.0 will be coming back to help with the DK Watersnake install, hopefully this weekend... stay tuned.

--------

And finally, for your viewing pleasure, more variety outta that Black Tiger tank. Today, we feature a poison blue and a monochrome. Oh, yeah, and she found a red-eye Rolfette. Tried to take a pic, and another fame-seeker narcissist shrimp got in the frame...

It was a litter of 12 (the poor owner was traumatized by the time they were 8 weeks old and roughly 20lbs). They were around 1lb each at birth though. Tiny little things.
