Where I live, try getting a brick layer for the right price. Damn joke that a simple trade is charging out at double what I get, an my quals make them look useless,

Some are, but they still get paid, go figure.

Take the job mate, then you remember how grate you had it for a while

Yes I probably will.I have another offer from my wifes cousin.Her husband is a plumber and he wants to hire me so I will give him a call.He offered me a job about 2 years ago but I didn't take it because I felt guilty,my boss is my friend so he was very busy and he made me feel guilty for wanting to leave.I was stupid for not leaving.Live and learn its not good to work for friends.They take advantage of you.

You could just help some of those poor Dignitaries in Nigeria that need to transfer money to the USA. You could offer to move their millions to Canada for them. I think all they ask for is a small $10,000 transfer fee right?

ahhhh! if only it were that simple.

Good luck with the new job if you take it. Yeah it's a bumer working for friends, especially when you become the focus of attention when things aren't working out.

Great chrisy present's mate.

I think now that you have your silicone problem worked out, you should have better luck

Shame the bi-colour's hiding, such a beautiful fish

Cheers

Chris

He was hiding again today I hope he eats.The fish was fat so he is in good health.The last thing I want is this fish to die.I have bad luck sometime its annoying.My few corals are fine.I was supposed to run my tests today but I didn't have time.I had to cook pizza.I made homemade pizza from scratch.Every year I get together with my cousins and do a gift exchange for Christmas.I made pizza and everyone brings something.We pick names and exchange gifts. Merry Christmas to you to kannin and chris.I am not a big Christmas guy.It is however the time to get together with family.We eat like pigs and I am stuffed to the gills.

Merry Christmas to you as well Steve. I think you guys have the right idea with your family.

Sounds like when the your bi-colour settles in, he'll come out.

Thank you.Well I see the bi color is coming out.He has a few white marks on his body and one of his fins has been nipped at.I don't know which fish did this but the bi color is pretty big compared to the rest of my fish.He was clean when I got him so he must have scraped himself.I know he was perfect when I bought him and very fat and healthy.He is still shy but if I stay away from the tank he comes out.He doesn't venture to far but its a start.

He is doing pretty good.I am happy at least I don't have a hole on the side of my tank.I use a close loop for circulation and I will be picking up my wave box next week.

I found the bi color dead this morning part of his eye was missing.I know I have a crab in the tank that came from some live rock I bought.I don't know if the fish died and the crab tried to eat him.I need to get a pest trap so I can catch the bugger just to be on the safe side.I was upset because he was a nice fish.I have some stupid bad luck its unbelievable.I didn't see one of the clown fish when I got home tonight now I am worried.I hate when fish die for no reason.I did get another smaller bi colored and 2 cleaner shrimp along with 2 fire fish.They seem to be fine.The LFS had sales today.I also bought 3 pales of salt.Was $30 each for IO 200 gal pale.

IO? Why use that salt when you can get much better. The supplements you have to add, would offset the cost of decent salt.

Sorry to hear that the Bi-colour passed away. I hope your luck turns around for you soon.

Cheers

Chris
