Reviving His Interest in Aquariums and Aquascapes

Despite DS being busy with school work he finds time to revive his interest in aquariums. This is how his new aquarium looks. It’s bare for now but will add more plants and whatnot in the coming days.

It contains only pieces of woods and pebbles for now.

DS has accumulated at least eight aquariums and left with four over the years.

Just to show you how his interest in maintaining aquariums looked in the past, here’s my previous posts about it. 

This was K’s first set of aquarium which I posted in June 2013.

The bigger aquarium, the better.

This is a 29-gallon aquarium which DS considered a dream come true because he truly wanted a big aquarium. It was complete with plastic plants, hardscape, and other accessories.

Aquascaping ideas

DS first time to do *aquascaping. He set this up by removing the plastic plants with live plants and adding some stones and pebbles.
Another aquascaping design by DS. Pterygoplichthys or Janitor fish is a genus of South American armored catfishes.
We were happy to have these baby fishes. Unfortunately they didn’t live long as they were eaten by other fishes in the aquarium.

DS temporarily stop aquascaping when he got busy with high school and settle with a simple aquarium setup until now.

Will share more pictures as his aquarium project progresses. 

* According to wikipedia, aquascaping is the craft of arranging aquatic plants, as well as rocks, stones, cavework, or driftwood, in an aesthetically pleasing manner within an aquarium—in effect, gardening under water.


Office Virtual Christmas Party

My DD had her first Christmas party at her new job. The event was held virtually.

She started working in the company only recently. I think she’s adjusting well enough.

My fervent wish for DD will be for her to excel in her field and be happy with all the experience. I’m truly happy for my DD that she is realizing her dreams one step at a time. 


Businesses Boom Online

The pandemic has affected the lives of many people economically. However, we cannot deny the fact that this phenomenon has taught us to be resilient. Many of those left unemployed due to lockdown become businesspeople of sort. They sell anything of value through the Internet to provide for their family. Those who sell online somehow become job providers as well by encouraging others to become reseller or start their own business however small.

Everyone is seizing the value or strength of the Internet. Big businesses are making large profit selling their products online. With several occasions and events coming in a couple of months, one can make reservations ahead of time.

As early as September, people in this side of the continent are putting up their Christmas decorations filling up their house with all sorts of adornment they could find. However, the religious ones will never forget to commemorate the dearly departed loved ones every first of November. This year will be different from the past years celebration because of the pandemic and crowding is not allowed in cemeteries. We can pay our respects at home and have the candles and flowers delivered at our doorsteps.
