Last week while we were out researching jungle plants, we stopped for gas. Magnum was out pumping when the flow suddenly stopped after only two gallons. I thought, "Oh great, we broke the gas station".
Turns out, someone had prepaid two gallons for that pump and left. Magnum did think it strange that he was never prompted to swipe the credit card. Random act of kindness? We're going with that.
And speaking of jungle plants, Vivarium de Meego is coming along quite nicely.
It now houses a friendly little waterfall, some river rock, primal looking foliage, and some comfy moss. Next up are the critters, which may move in later today. There will also be smaller critters whose job is to love one another and provide food for the larger critters. Circle of life and all that.
As for my Aquarium of Death, things seem to be in a post-apocalypse rebuilding stage. I've been giving it a little extra TLC to wipe out the plague, and it seems to be working. The three remaining fish are thriving, the plants are flourishing, and I'm considering getting another plecostomus to replace Hot Lips who fell victim to armageddon.
This after I'd decided that I would convert it to a saltwater tank when the End Times were complete. Figures.
Twelve more days of full-schedule tuting and taking classes, but who's counting? I'll just heed the advice I think of when considering the student mentioned in yesterday's post.
