So the aquarium had gotten a little overgrown.
Well, okay, it had gotten a *little* overgrown before I went to Seattle last week. When I got home, I found that it had gotten a *lot* overgrown.
Fortunately, since Mark came down with me to visit for a few days, and since the aquarium plants are kind of his thing, he was able to to address that!
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a “before” picture. Just imagine a picture here of an entire box filled with underwater plants, and a little water, and no fish, because they’re all hiding in the plants.

And now, here is after:
You can actually see fish!
And a bonus, slightly blurry, picture of a crystal shrimp:
The little white bits on the piece of petrified wood are sand, spilled over from where we prefer it. Within a day or two, the shrimps will have carried all the sand off to wherever they prefer it. Which is why we keep having to add sand.
Most of the rest of the day was about story-writing-and-editing (Mark) and freelance work (me). Trust me, you’re getting the cream of the crop here, entertainment-wise. You’re welcome.
