Ride 'em, cowshrimp!

And here's yesterday's skeleton shrimp, riding the currents and hoping to catch a juicy copepod.

It was my birthday today, and I've had company, including a beautiful 6-year-old boy who helped me empty the tank and do inventory. He even managed to catch a shrimp in his hand, without hurting it!

And now I'm tired and feeling every single one of my mumblety years; I'm going to bed.

Pink algae, tomorrow.

    Let me use this opportunity to thank you for the effort you put into this wonderful blog. I don't think I ever commented before, but I have been enjoying your photos and stories for years now.

    Happy Birthday!

  2. Happy birthday, Susannah!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
