Leaking 120

This hobby can be a lot of fun but it can also be a lot of work. It can also be frustrating and today was one of those days. Sometime this evening our 120 decided to spring a leak. We feel fortunate to have caught it early. It likely started to leak around 7pm. Based on the below video, you can see how quickly it started leaking.

Our best guess is that it busted a seam. We will likely try to repair but it will take time. The local fish club, the Columbus Area Fish Enthusiasts (CAFE), has their June meeting tomorrow and we our hosting guest speaker Joe Doyle. Shout out to Joe for coming and giving a talk. Joe is a great breeder having won Breeder of the Year for the Greater Pittsburgh Aquarium Society (GPASI). So be sure to come see Joe at 7:30pm at Sawmill Lanes. Go to ColumbusFishClub.org for all of the details. In the meantime, check out the video sharing our tank leak. Things happen! All the fish are safe and that is the important thing.

More of Mitu

We continue our views of Mitu, Colombia. Four months after our visit, we wish we could go back! Plans are coming together for our trip next year where we will visit Puerto Carreno in northeast Colombia. There will be many small streams, rivers and maybe even temporary pools to view. We are truly looking forward to our return trip! More to come as things develop.

Just this week, we have had a number of spawns. All the usual species are reproducing including our:  Corydoras duplicareus, Hypancistrus zebra, Hypancistrus sp. “L-333” Porto de Moz, Hypancistrus sp. “L-345”, Krobia xinguensis and now even our Geophagus megasema! If things continue, we will be well set for fall auction and convention season. Fingers crossed! Happy fish keeping everyone!
