Hello June 1. Welcome to Pride Month!
The mercury is going to be rising up into the low 90s today and tomorrow. The A/C is quiet now, but I don't doubt later this afternoon it will be fired up.
I've been dealing with an algae problem in the big tank. The stuff grows on everything. For a while I thought it was being caused by direct sunlight coming in through the big window, now, however I don't think that's the case, though it may be a contributing factor. I also have algae growth in the living room tank where there's no direct sunlight. So, I'm thinking it's probably the LED lighting. An easy fix would be to toss in a couple of snails, but I have Tiger Barbs in the big tank and they eat snails. This afternoon sometime, the barbs are getting moved to the living room tank where they can swim around with lots of other barbs. That will leave only the angelfish in the big tank. They don't eat snails.
Using my trusty old weed wacker, I did some real damage to the English ivy outside the fence yesterday. Good. I will get rid of it completely.
Because we've had no rain, there's no need to mow my brown lawn. This usually doesn't happen until July and August. Dryness came early this year.
I'm trying to grow garlic. All I need to do is keep it watered.
