Did some research yesterday and found xenias need iodine as food as well. Luckily I have B-IONIC #1 and #2 from the original owner of this tank. I added those last night to the tank, hopefully the corals can all get calcium and iodine and grow stronger and more colorful
Okay, after looking beautiful for about more than a week, I made a silly mistake and killed my mushroom What happened was that I changed water (about 2 gal) for my tank and since I added in fresh water, I need to make pH right again by adding Instant Ocean seasalt. And I directly added it to the tank and some of the salt dropped onto the mushroom and it killed it… Now lessons learned: always mix the seawalter first in a bucket before changing water!
Anyway I went out yesterday morning and spent more than $100 to bring back some stuff again for my tank: a bubble, another two that I forgot the name.
Today my wife, daughter and I went to Pacific Science Center and we were surprised to see "Happy Feet" on show in IMAX again. Though they have watched it on IMAX, they still accompanied me and watched it the 2nd time.
It’s an animated film talking about how an emperor penguin, Mumble, who is born incapable of singing where in Antarctica penguins find their mate through singing. He was treated as an anomoly but he could tap dance very well. He was ousted by THE emperor of emperor penguins because he thought it’s Mumble who brings the bad luck of femine where fish supply is low because of human fishing near Antarctic. Anyway Mumble left and found himself friends with 5 amigos, a smaller kind of penguin. He is determined to find out the real cause of the femine. He saw a big fish net catching lots of fish and was caught as well trying to find out why. He ended up in an aquarium zoo. He couldn’t communicate with humans but his tap dancing got visitors’ attention and was finally released to the sea with a tracking radio on his back. A few humans followed him to the emperor penguins territory and one of them took videos of penguins all doing tap dancing. The video got lots of attention in human society and finally human ‘aliens’ decided not to catch fish near Antarctic. And penguins’ femine is over and they live happily ever after.
2 more weeks passed by.
Now Nemo is more comfortable in his aquarium. He used to hide in one corner of the tank but from today, he starts to come out and swim merrily all over the tank. I’m quite happy for him
