Sigh. I hope my wallaby is okay. Well, he's not mine, but when you hand feed a guy for two days, you tend to think of him as yours. Honestly I know his chances are pretty slim, but he's really cute.
Aw, <3 you and the wallaby -- did anyone take a pic of the 2 of you together?

Is that your uncle? He's awesome, we're not making fun! We were just like uhhh does anyone know him??? Because he joined in on our auction on Sunday. And then we kept seeing him at the stores!

I don't have any wallaby pics, but I think someone else got a few.

Ohhh so tired.

We didn't know he was your uncle....he should have spoken up and said he knew you.

It all makes sense now, how else did he end up at the swap and meet with us?

DO NOT DIG THE OLD SILICONE OUT OF THE SEAMS BETWEEN THE GLASS PANES! THIS IS THE PRiMARY SEAL AND IS WHAT HOLDS THE GLASS TOGETHER. Just scrape the old stuff away keeping the blade flat to the glass. When it is all removed wash the tank with white vinegar and water-dry the tank thoroughly. Get blue masking tape and mask off the joints to be siliconed-they don't need to be too wide. Use another tank for reference. Get some GE I silicone in a chaulking tube. The chaulking gun method gives the most control. ONLY USE GE I SILICONE FOR WINDOWS AND DOORS AS IT DOES NOT HAVE AND ALGAECIDES IN IT. BATHROOM CHAULK WILL KILL YOUR FISH. Run the chaulking along all the masked beads at once, it is do or die, do not let the silicone dry and then start again. After the beads are laid, smooth them with a finger dipped in either water or alcohol. Pull tape of immediately. let the tank dy for 24 hours then fill with water to check for leaks. It is easier than it sounds.
Sounds easy enough. I haven't seen GE I Silicone around since I was thinking about resealing a 20H a while back. Would any 100% silicone caulk WITHOUT any anti-mildew agents or "Microban" work?

I have only used GE I, but I have heard that DAP makes a 100% silicone that can work also. I have found the GE at Home Depot and also at a Benjamin Moore dealer here in the Bronx. It comes in either clear or black.

Is your pea puffer behaving herself? I've seen them in stores harassing & taking chunks out of much larger fish.

Hey all another random question.
Was told that my fish would enjoy some bloodworms and/or tubifex worms as part of a varied diet, I plan to get some freeze dried of both (wife will not allow frozen insects in her freezer.) one thing I can't find any info on is how to feed them to the fish do you just drop them in or do you need to rehydrate them at all. Also noticed that the bloodworms are loose and the tubifex worms are pressed into a cube any reason for that?
