I have to say, I am absolutely loving running Lothian Fishkeepers. Im not so sure my wonderful Diane is loving it as much though. It is taking up a lot of my time. Infant, it probably takes up 100% of my free time. Having 5 kids doesn't leave much free time i have to say so its not unusual for me to be doing tank maintenance at 11pm or spreading maintenance over 2-3 days.
Tank Maintenance for me rarely happens all at the same time. I usually do a gravel clean then stop. Later in the dayI will clean the glass, maybe that evening ill do something else. you get the picture.
The most important thing for me is that it gets done. whilst its great to do it all at once, i can't commit that amount of time all at once. In between maintenance, I work on the admin side of things, which is also good fun. Im currently speaking with local fish shop owners, pro aquascapers, breeders and also admins on other groups, all working together to hold the best events possible.
We have two events coming up and there will be more later in the year for sure. I am mainly focusing on the aquascaping event which is just around the corner. Covering the cost of this event has been the biggest challenge yet. Although, costs have not been met yet, I do like a challenge.
If your free on the 10th February and enjoy live plants in your aquarium, you really should come along.
hope to see you all there and looking forward to the Table sale and shrimp show in April for more catching up.
Bye for now
