This is Your Aquarium on Drugs

Aquarium on Drugs

Mikey’s aquarium is officially in business. The heavily-tatted, patchouli-wearing, free-balling, bass-playing, moderately capable aquariast from the fish store stopped by for the installation. He killed a bunch of “copapods”, manhandled some Fijian reef and made Mikey’s water extra salty. Mikey’s been frantic in the kitchen with truckloads of bottles, droppers and chemistry charts ever since. He has to get the PH and salinity right before any sort of complex marine life can be introduced into their new habitat. I saw a couple of angry-looking worms tearing off chunks of the reef last time I peered into the tank. Mikey’s sad because he hasn’t seen anything yet… save for the skeletal remains of the aquariast’s handiwork.

The aquarium goes very nicely with the Kirkland’s Best Artificial Christmas Tree with 50% too many lights and a weird vinyl smell which now inhabits one corner of the living room. Sunglasses are advisable. Though bright, Vol toned down the fuchsia garland this year so it looks less “Vegas show girl” than usual.

Sadly, none of our decorations can even compare to the amazing explosions of luminance and color which light up our neighborhood at night. Photos, and perhaps some video, to follow.
