Sometimes I draw things.

Other times I take pictures.

But usually I do nothing.


Find me on:

Dole banana man stamp by ISeeTheLattice
Same URL as the old Tumblr!

The new blog will be only or primarily art. For the next few days it'll have some older art trickling in as I set it up.

My old blog is still up and running as a personal blog under a different URL. If we are mutual watchers and you want to follow my personal blog, feel free to send a note asking for the URL. Also, if you have a Tumblr art blog, feel free to post or send me a link!

As for the 55-gallon aquarium:
It took a while to sift the twigs and wood chips out of the soil, but the tank is no longer empty! I now have some dwarf hairgrass and microsword growing in there via the dry start/mist method. It'll probably take about a month for them to carpet the bottom, which is all well and good because I will be going to Japan at the end of next month, and I don't want to be away from the tank at a time when things could easily go wrong.

By no coincidence, one of the places we plan on visiting in Japan is the Sumida Aquarium, which has several nature aquariums that were designed by Amano Takashi

My 10gal is the same as always. No matter what I do the pH goes back to around 8.0, but the plants seem to be doing well. A bunch of shrimp hitchhiked in on the swordgrass for the 55gal, so I currently have a bucket of tiny shrimp waiting to go into the 10gal. Hopefully, a few more water changes will get the pH to be about the same as our tap water and I'll finally be able to add some fish.
