GTO under snow

It's a good thing I had that car cover. Snow came early in Indiana. This was on the day before Thanksgiving.



New Light

I bought a new light on the 12th for my tank. The old light was only 65 watts (I think). That is no where near what I need for a reef tank. So I picked up a 192 watt lighting system. Before this light, the tank actually looked yellow in color. I never noticed until I put the new light on!!

Here is the old light


And now the new light


I also bought some more hermit crabs. 4 are blue legged hermits. I’m not sure what the big guy is…. He ended up dieing about 24 hours after I got him.


New inhabitants for the fish tank

On November, 2nd 2005 I bought several new inhabitants for my saltwater aquarium.
A Diamond Goby, a green sand sifter starfish, and 5 baby blue-legged hermit crabs. I named the goby Moby. :)
Here is Moby in his new home.
I love that little guy. There was algae all over the bottom of the tank. He took care of it in a matter of hours. But now it's like a dust storm in the tank. He kicks of a lot of crap. I hope that will settle down over time, or maybe just siphon it out during my weekly 10% water changes.

My saltwater fish tank

Well, I decided to resetup my fish only saltwater tank to a reef tank on Oct. 22nd 2005. I let it go for far too long. Algae all over the place.
This was mostly caused by using tap water. Which is a big no-no for saltwater tanks apparently. So now, I buy all of my RO (reverse osmosis) water from the LFS (local fish store).
I decided to go with Lace rock for the base rock. It’s fairly dense, but a lot cheaper than live rock.

Sometimes I think… Is it worth the money?

Every now and then, when I am a few dollars in the hole and have to pay for bounced checks, I wonder… was it a wise choice to buy a GTO. Maybe I should have bought a house.

Like most Americans, I work 5 days a week, 40+ hours a week. For those 5 days, EVERY TIME I get into the goat, I don’t regret it!

This morning I was like (shit, need to make this $100 I have last for two weeks, maybe I shouldn’t have bought the goat). Then I sit in it, feel the comfort, and hear the pipes roar to life.

Some Jerk Hit My Car!

I walked out of Petware House on Coldwater Rd. in Fort Wayne, IN around 7:20pm… pretty dark out when it's this late these days. Anyway, I took a look over my car like I do EVERY time I get into it… Nothing. Whew, thank God.. because there is a BIG ASS Blue Pickup parked right next to my baby. Huge tires with large tread, probably off-roading type, so it has a high profile. There are two to three dozen parking spots around, and anyone of them wouldn’t have been near my car. There were even around 6 spots right in front of the store, and he parked next to me. Prick.

Stormproof Car Cover

My new custom fit car cover arrived (after a month)!

It’s a beauty. Water just rolls off.


Here is the official description:

Three more coats of wax.

It took all day, but I was able to get three more coats of Zaino on my goat. Two Z5 and one Z2.


I was able to use my new towels and applicators from The Concours Buffing Towel is great! I need to pick up a couple more.


More Zaino Pics.

I've uploaded more Zaino pics to my gto gallery. 529
