So here’s an image-collection of my big, beautiful, bulky and brave still-a-kitten Lady of the House “Gattina”. A german slang word for a cute small kitten is “Maunzele” (“Meower”) and that’s what I still call her – and “Gattina” is Italian for “Kitten” – that says it all, although she’s really more of a “Big Mama” by now… 🙂
May I introduce to you:
my most beloved and precious Lady of the House. Unofficial Head of State in my dwelling, cheerer-up in bad times and general scurrying-around sunshine.
We found her 11 years ago under a bush in Italy, abandoned by her mother, skinny, sick and hungry and we slowly pampered her back into shape. “Gattina” is just the italian word for “Kitten”, but meanwhile she’s a really heavy Momma, well nourished, self-confident, very cuddly and with a character of her own. We love her.
After changing some water today, I added a liquid filter medium to the tank that I heavily rely on (EasyLife flüssiges FIltermedium, on Amazon). Always looks like a cloudy november morning for some hours.
The small Nano Tank that I set up two weeks ago proved just too small. It’s too hard to maintain a good water quality with so little water in the tank and also it got too much direct sunlight wich made algae growth literally skyrocket.
So I set up a new tank with more capacity and I moved it to a place with no direct sunlight. It’s up and running for a few days now and things are looking promising.
Now this is the population that I have dwelling in my Self-made Nano-Fish-Tank. Even the cat approves:
Since there are mere shitloads of “Nano-Fish-Tanks” available online nowadays and me having been an old fish-lover for years, I decided to make my own tank from materials that I had still lying around.
