Hi everyone. I just wanted to say sorry I haven't been on in so long. I just got a job and have been working alot. I don't get much time. Then college is about to start back for me so I'm gonna be busy and I'll be on here as much as I can. Anyway Kraken is good. He hasn't grown too much since the last time. He is getting more red. His bruise and cut healed up fine. Anyway I hope you guys enjoy the pics!








please ignore the not so clear water. I am having to regain my bio filter due to a power failure while I was with my grandma in the hospital. Both of my biofilters failed and basically I'm restarting the cycle...so Im constantly doing water changes..Thanks again for looking. Sorry about all the pics. Thats what this thread is made for though right? LOL :pinch:

thanks Roxy! I bought some start zyme to speed upt he process some. It ha shelped a little. Not alot but a little. It'll at least help seed a few bacteria to speed the process up. Thanks Miss Nicki! He is great. He has started this thing where if you cut off the light to the tank and go to look at him he charges at you trying to attack. it's hilarious. :lol: Thanks again guys. I think I picked out a good oscar. I never would have thought he would look like this when I got him.

Nice pics Brandon, you are the guy who likes marine biology right? If so cool! We can relate, except for the fact I haven't taken any classes but it is one of the things that I have always though about.. going down to Dana Point Tide Pools and stuff you know?

We aren't joking when we say water changes and Prime are the best solution to a problem.

Yeah I love marine biology! I really like estuaries. The diversity of the wildlife is amazing! They are so complex in those systems since they have to deal with fluctuations in salinity and the depths of the water due to tides. Take a class! It is a ton of fun. I loved it alot. It's alot of info. I Wasn't able to absorb it all. SO basically what happened in my class was we had people who specialized in certain areas and organism phylum and we spilt into groups on that premises. I have have taken every bio class at my college except micro and botany...which Ill be taking micro sometime soon...take the classes it helps aton! Me and my bio professor have designed me a new wet/dry sump filter system. He currently is using the design...I havent had the money yet to go out and get the materials...but I will soon enough.
