If you beat both Fitzroy and Richmond, I'll make it a point to keep reminding you that you lost to a team whose headquarters are now in Frankston.

Sort of. They're still hiding behind the log a fair bit, but they're swimming around more and are happy to come up to the top.

My mother's wondered if they're just cold. This week has been the coldest week of the year at my place, and perhaps the old dirtier water was warmer than the new water I've put in? But I really don't think so. Last year was even colder inside my place, as for most of winter I had poor insulation due to windows being replaced and not fully finished for ages, and they didn't behave like this.

if they are goldfish/ cold water fish it is normal for them to retreat to deeper parts of the water for warmth .

Wow, I really can't imagine you owning a cat! But that gives your dislike of them some context ...

This sounds plausible!

I remember reading an article that tried to scientifically establish that cats aren't actually domesticated per se, but have just taken on domesticated characteristics since it gets them what they want, i.e. food and shelter, and they really own their owners, not the other way around.

my hatred of cats has alot to do with my "whatever the fuck is wrong with me personality disorder " - aka they freak me out now and i have allergies and am phobic of them .

most animal fur gives me asthma and a rash , thus my preference for amphibians, reptiles and fish.

getting some hermit crabs soon !

They're zebrafish. Over the weekend, I changed their water as it was the dirtiest it's ever been (which surprised me, I'd kept it refreshed, but I guess it just built up more than usual somehow). In the couple of days before I changed the water, they'd hid behind their log, but that's their normal behaviour when the water gets too dirty for their liking and is a good indication to me that I need to do a full tank clean. However, after I put in the clean water (I did everything exactly the same as normally), they hid behind their log even more. They were even reluctant to come out for food at the start of the week, and didn't want to know about the top half of the tank. They've been venturing out a bit more now, though, and have been eager to come to the top when I feed them, like normal.

Oh, I know what you mean about asthma - most breeds of dogs absolutely fuck with me. I was fine with cats as a child, but since I haven't lived around them for a decade, I'm now not sure if I'd be OK. Dogs also cause my sinuses to go absolutely haywire.

Fish and birds, on the other hand, are great. Never owned any amphibians or reptiles, though.

i never do a full tank clean , do a 25% once a week with a gravel vac, much better , and far less of a shock .

what temp do you run their tank at? is all your equipment working? no one has died or become more dominant? breeding pehaps? range of questions to work on .

Heh, I only recently discovered that I'm actually within walking distance of Windy Hill and it seems like such a shame that it's not used any more. The whole thing of playing a "home" game at the MCG one week and an "away" game at the MCG the very next week is just a total fucking joke.
