One of the little known facts
about me is that I run saltwater aquariums.
In my home, 675 gallons of brine, fish, coral and critters circulate in four glass cages. I actually got into the hobby about five years ago when my little girl wanted a Nemo. I ran a coral reef, a trigger tank, and a venomous tank as well as a crunchy critter tank. If you want to enjoy all kinds of sea life, you have to keep them separate.
I now have my air conditioning working again, but alas, many of the sea creatures did not survive. Although I kept the water circulating, and fans blowing across the top of the water, All but
two fish died. All the coral is gone. I'm in the midst of saving what I can, but I do not think I will invest so heavily in the hobby again. Perhaps I will acquire a Clown Trigger for one tank, and maybe a humuhumunukunukuapua, pronounced humu-humu-nuku-nuku-apu-a'-a, AKA a Picasso Trigger for the other. No more coral. Nemo did survive.
The house is steadily cooling again.....
