Silent Sunday: August 22, 2021. Catfish pod

This cave had to be removed. Stubborn algae growth that I’m still working to remove. But this incognito fish pic was too cute to leave out.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thank you for stopping by! Appreciate you all and God bless.

    1. The albino catfish is the sweetest and a peaceful tankmate. No issues with other fish and minds its own business. However, its mate died this summer from an injured tail. It’s been a rough summer for our fish: just yesterday a striped Danio passed (it turned pale and was laying sideways.)

      1. That’s good – hopefully no more issues with fish dying. I lost one of my porch squirrels this morning – it left my house and ran across the street where someone ran over it. I felt sick when I saw it lying there. My neighbor moved the body … still feel sad about it.

      2. I’m so sorry to hear this. I read this comment a few days ago and couldn’t find it again to respond sooner.
        What a horrible thing to see. I’d feel sad too and it was just at your house. Poor squirrel and I wonder how shocked the driver must’ve been.
        A friend’s cat got out of the house and when she went out to bring it back in, a coyote killed it in front of her eyes. It was a terrifying experience for her and family!!

      3. Yes, I felt so badly Esther as I had just seen it on the porch and warned it that I was going to pull the car out so to please stay on the porch and not go behind the car as I pulled out. Then I grabbed the keys and went outside only to see it dead. I was upset. Oh, that must have been terrible seeing their family pet killed by a coyote – how heartbreaking. I feel for them for the loss of their cat.

      4. That’s a terrible thing to see of any animal. A high school friend way back in the day had a bird plat on his windshield while driving. yikes…I’m sure stories like these abound.
        I hope your squirrels stay out of harm’s way! I thought of you when I heard the news story of a town where the people built a bridge for the squirrels across a busy street. Squirrel traffic deaths were frequent so that was their solution. That’s something you would do!

      5. I did see that story – someone posted the story on Facebook. I liked that idea too. There is a street I walked down when I first began walking – I walked that route for almost two years before I discovered Council Point Park. It is an old street with big houses and lots of trees lining the street. There are squirrels running everywhere, including into the street. Emmons Boulevard is very busy – lots of squirrel deaths … I hated walking that way sometimes.

      6. Oh, that must’ve been hard to see squirrel deaths on the road. I wonder who cleans up the roads, how they do it, and when they arrive. Traumatizing.
        Very rarely we see a cat or dog near the highway exit and it’s so sad for the dog and car that hit it.
