Dumbass Hackers

Grumpy CatI really wish you dumb asses from China, Turkey and Russia would give up your futile attempts to hack my WordPress. Give it up. You’re not getting in. The usernames you use to try to log in are worth nothing more than a few giggles at best (I have a log of every single one of them, along with your IP address). Even if you did get the right username it would take you 98 million years to crack my password.



Sleeping beauty…. Michael.

Was perusing through some camera pics taken on my S4 that are sitting in my DropBox and ran across this one. Took this on Sept 13th when my son was visiting. Seriously, who sleeps like that?


New Canister Filter

First things first… Happy Birthday Doug!! Love you bunches and bunches!!

I finally got off my butt and added a canister filter to my 30 gallon tank. Don’t get me wrong, I love HoB filters and the Fluval C Series offer amazing five stage filtration. I just wanted a bit more.

The AquaTop CF400-UV canister has been installed since Friday night. I took the bio-media (C-Nodes and Bio-Screen) out of the C3 and the C2 (I was running a backup) out of the HoB’s and put them in one of the trays in the new canister. Once Doug and I got everything all set up and running I tossed in a bottle of Dr Tim’s One & Only Nitrifying Bacteria. Normally this is not necessary since I used the bio-media from the other filters, but I wanted to ensure the nitrogen cycle was not interrupted, and I wanted to prevent any chance of a mini cycle.

Going on day 4 now and everything seems to be peachy in the tank. Whether or not it’s all in my head that my aqua babies are more colorful than before, I don’t know hehe. Though they sure seem to be!
