Al and Ben are home again. They got in last night after what sounded like a pretty rough flight for Ben. Considering he didn’t get to bed until some time around 11 p.m. on the clock he’s been living with the last four days, he did o.k.
Part of the “Al and Ben are gone” shuffling around involved doing some work on the aquarium, which we had in Ben’s room until I moved it into the bedroom this weekend. I finally got a one-way valve for the air pump so it can’t backsiphon (which means I can finally put it under the aquarium stand), put an apron around the aquarium stand so we can’t see all the supplies underneath, and added some new fish and plants:
That pretty much maxes the tank out for now, so I’m eyeing a small five gallon I bought as a holding tank a while back as a small tabletop project. The folks down at The Wet Spot have a knack for doing small aquariums and I’d love to try one out for myself.
