I am back in the ten gallon tank. The fifty five gallon is being cleaned. Mom got really wet with my poop water when she was trying to empty the tank. She used a lot of bad language. Many, many times.
Eli helped. He got wet and cold too, but he didn’t seem to mind as much. Like mom always say, “everyone is different!”
Mom is researching “self-sustaining eco-system”, which is a fancy way of saying that she doesn’t want to touch my poop too often.
This is her to do list:
- Get grow lights for the water plants.
- Start some more lotus seeds.
- Find some large rocks from the yard.
- Get more river rocks.
- Bring in some water plants from the pond.
She says the idea is to have enough water plants that will enjoy my poop so that the aquarium will have a nice balance between poop, plants, oxygen and CO2. I don’t know what this means, but I hope the “self-sustaining eco-system” works out so that mommy doesn’t get so mad again.
