I finally got around to cleaning our family 50-gallon freshwater aquarium this evening. It houses an interesting mix, like Australian rainbowfish, black neon tetras, spotted cory cats. Periodically fish disappear, bones and all---but that's always been the case in all of my tanks, where it's not quite survival of the fittest, but pretty close.

I've had both saltwater and freshwater, and even a self-built river paludarium that became a three-part article in Aquarium Fish Magazine back in 1996. And though I've been a hobbyist for 25 years now, I'm not sure all of that is helping me in a poem I'm working on.... Ah well.
