New Host!

After many years with my previous web host, I’ve now moved everything (I think) over to Web Hosting Canada.

So far the site response has been excellent – much faster than my old provider, which was taking 30-45 seconds to load a page, or log into the wordpress admin console.  I also like the fact that this is a Canadian host, and the servers are in Canada.

 

Current Tank Occupants

Currently, my 55 gallon aquarium has the following:

  • 3 new Denison barbs, about 2″ long
  • 1 old Denison barb, about 4″ long
  • 2 Plecostumus – I rarely see them, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen both at the same time since adding them to the tank.  When I do see one, it is about 3″ long.
  • 3 black tetras
  • 1 Phantom tetra
  • 4 Siamese algae eaters

A few fish have died over the past couple years, and the only new additions since my last stocking post was the addition of the Pleco’s.

The amazon sword plant I have is flourishing.  Can’t say that about the 3 other kinds of plants that I have, although they aren’t dying… just growing very slowly.  I mean very very slowly 🙂

I want to make some changes to the lighting.  The 4′ flourescent tube has quit – and I would like to replace it with some LED lighting.  The lighting needs to be string enough for the plants however – which can make them very expensive.  Debating whether I should just make my own using some outdoor LED floodlights.
