Update on Saltwater Aquarium Tank!

I haven’t shared how our saltwater aquarium tank is doing for a long time. There have been too many projects that have been keeping me busy. While I am finishing up a WIP I thought I would do this quick post.

Thank goodness my husband feeds and takes care of our fish. If they waited for me to feed them, they would have to wait a long time, poor guys.

Here are some recent photos of these beautiful fish. They are fascinating to watch as they swim back and forth and in and out of the rocks effortlessly. As you look closely at the photos, notice how they do not like me standing in front of their water world with my phone in their faces. They are quite perturbed to say the least and keep hiding in the rocks and swimming faster in front of me back and forth. I think they know that I am not there to feed them but just to annoy them, which I do quite well. Ha!

Two clown fish and Wrasse – Clown fish is giving me some fish words – his mouth was going like crazy. I wish I could understand fish speak!

Overall view of tank with Wrasse, Clown, Damsels and Trigger (oops me in there too!)

We originally had six damsels – 5 blue and 1 black and white. But sadly there are only three blue damsels left now. Clown fish have a tendency to be very aggressive and territorial and probably attacked the damsels to keep them away from their little piece of the tank space on the left back corner. They don’t even like me to clean the outside of the tank with a cloth. They chase me back and forth and say a few choice fish words to me. I’ve relieved I don’t know what they are thinking or saying.

I will keep you abreast of what is happening in our tanks and if there are any new additions. Unfortunately, since the fish we have now are all territorial and aggressive, we cannot add any new additions to it. They would not survive.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my photos and learning about our tank. My husband has to take credit for how beautiful it looks. He works so hard to keep it this way. It’s not an easy job to do either. I wouldn’t be able to do what he does to keep it this way.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. Come back again soon. You are always welcome.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
