the new tank

Morning fellow readers!

Another blog post and it hasn't been two months yet? This week I decided to upgrade my Fluval Flex to a bigger aquarium, as I wanted to get more fish to try out as having the same fish for awhile does get quite boring. I purchased the 16 Gallon (60L) Fluval Curve, my previous Fluval was only 7 Gallons (30L) so it was a fairly small aquarium and it really did hold me back from owning more fish.

Little miss Scarlett guarding the new edition to her bedroom after it got delivered to the house. I had already had a scape planned for this aquarium before I even ordered it, I was aiming purely for a lush heavily planted look and I think once the plants grow in my goal will be complete!

The current stocking in this aquarium is Four Swordtails, Eleven Harlequin Rasboras, Six Bronze Cordydoras Catfish and One Albino Bristlenose Catfish. Now I do plan on attempting to breed my Swordtails as I think that would be something interesting to experience with you guys and being that they are Livebearers it should be fairly easy to do just that. I am dosing several Seachem plant products to provide enough nutrients for all the new plants to sprout new stems and really take off, I am currently researching into dosing cO2 into the aquarium to enhance plant growth also but we will see if I actually go that route or not.

Feel free to check out my latest YouTube videos on this specific aquarium getting setup, until my next post...

what a week can do

Hello everyone!

Been a very long time since I have graced you with a blog post. I have been on Annual Leave from my Full time job for the past week and it has made me think about some stuff, such as why as a society do we work most of our lives and miss out on the joys of actually living. Whether that be spending quality time with family or getting out and surrounding yourself with friends, life shouldn't be just about working. After much thinking I thought it would be best for me to request to go Part time so I can work on other passions of mine for a bit, yes money will be a bit tighter but I have feeling everything will work out for the better this way. An added bonus to the request is now I will get to spend Christmas and New Years at home with my pets and family and I couldn't be happier about that, for the past three years I have worked on both these days and it's been exhausting.

The photos above were taken roughly over two months ago I'd say, my Mum, Brother, Scarlett and I went out on a days adventure into the country side to visit a beautiful site Darlington Park. I couldn't resist taking some shots using my DSLR of Scarlett next to my car, isn't she just the cutest Miniature Poodle you guys have ever seen?

Our Goldfish pond outside is doing great. The fish in the pond consists of one Shubunkin Goldfish and two Oranda Goldfish, its hard to believe that when we purchased them they were so much smaller but they are getting quite big now and might be in need of a bigger pond soon.

Thats me til next time, hopefully it won't be as long!

scarlett got groomed

Good evening everyone, how have y'all been?

I decided to get Scarlett groomed on Friday as her long poodle coat just kept matting where her harness sits, which no amount of brushing helped. I was hoping to hold off until the winter months are over so she didn't have to wear a jacket all the time because she absolutely hates wearing one, ends up ending up off of her on the floor somewhere. 


As you can see Scarlett's coat before Friday was becoming very long, and being that we go to the beach a lot she gets sand in her hair. It's just a pain in the butt to manage when she gets her long coat.


Isn't she just the cutest pup with her new groom, I asked the groomer to give her a "lamb cut" which is commonly used for Show Poodles. I couldn't get her to stand still for me to get a body shot of her so I hope her sitting will suffice. 

Well I am off to work now, thought I should quickly get an update on Scarlett out for you guys. I plan on doing an update on all my pets this weekend for YouTube so make sure you are Subscribed and ready for that!

scarlett had surgery

How's everyone been lately with the colder weather setting in?

Last Friday Scarlett went in for her first and hopefully only major surgery — she got spayed. I was dreading leaving her at the vets for the whole day as she's become quite my little companion over the past couple months. I felt empty knowing she wasn't by my side. However she seems to be healing quite well. When I went to pick her up she was extremely groggy and just fell asleep in my arms but two days later you wouldn't know she just had surgery.


Scarlett is sporting the cone of shame when I'm not around to stop her from irritating her wound, although they are concealed, dissolvable stitches. I still don't want to risk anything happening. I also purchased Scarlett a new winter coat. I never realised how expensive a doggy coat was until it came to buying one. It cost me $69.00 AUD just for a bit of material! She does look extremely cute in it though so worth the money I guess.

parlour time

Hello again!

Scarlett got her first every parlour job on Tuesday, and she turned out absolutely adorable. I was extremely nervous with sending her to get trimmed. I originally wanted to hold off til after the whole Coronavirus situation just incase the groomer or previous dogs might have been in contact with the virus, but after taking her for a walk I saw how desperately she needed done. I ended up staying at the parlour until she was finished just too make sure she remained safe, she was extremely well behaved the whole time.

If you haven't watched my latest YouTube upload, then you probably don't know what Scarlett got up too while I was having a nap after work. I leave my ensuite door open so if she wants to go lie on the cool tiles she can. However this particular day she thought it would be acceptable to rip apart the toilet paper and make a big mess of my bedroom. Cody did something very similar when he was a puppy, except with mums wool out of her knitting bag.

Remember to stay safe and healthy in these times, only go out if absolutely necessary and remember to stay 1.5 metres away from anyone you may encounter on your journey.
