It's so pristine now I'm so proud of my muscles and my arms working so well. Thanks to Cliff Schulman and the Black Mountain Physical Therapists...I've got arms that work without pain again.

One of the guppies landed on the floor, about 2 feet down onto carpet. The main problem was that I was sitting enjoying all the beautiful views for about 10 minutes before I noticed her limp form. I picked her up, put her in the stainless bowl and she started breathing, and swimming kind of erratically. I thought she wouldn't make it, but threw some flakes of food in with her, just in case she needed incentive. But 5 minutes later she looked healthy. So I netted her and added her to the tank. Now I can't tell which one she is.
Again I've set up the tank so I can have baby guppies on one side safe from the appetites of their parents. There were 2 that I found in the green water and managed to rescue. We shall see if this setup works like it has in the past, where newborn babies just escape right under the screen onto the "nursery" side. Yes they give live birth, which is why I enjoy them. I'll let you know. I probably won't be able to take photos, as you see, these are pretty lame already. But I'm thrilled to be able to see the sparkle on everything today!
Now if we just have sun continuing to move further north (as equinox is in a couple of weeks) and less comes into the living room windows to strike the aquariums and create that algae again. Now I'm going to run around setting all my clocks to daylight savings time, ugh. What would I have done with that extra hour that I'll lose tonight? Probably invented the greatest thing imaginable, or made the most beautiful pot. I will be dreaming about it, but have just an hour less than can bring it to fruition. I don't know a soul who likes DST.
