Lenny the Lobster

Lenny the "Lobster"

I haven’t been diving in a while. It sucks. Holidays got in the way, and then I decided to get my neck-seal repaired. That’s done, and I just have to get it picked up and my tanks filled. Hopefully I’ll get some diving in soon!

In the meanwhile, we’ve started up a small aquarium (Stefania’s Christmas present) with a few fish, and in the past couple of days.. A Blue “Lobster” (Actually it’s a Crayfish, as it’s a freshwater creature, but lobster sounds much cooler). It’s interesting seeing him (her?) scurrying around the tank, digging between rocks for any food it can scavenge. It’s tank-mates are three Amber Tetras which have so far been quick and smart enough to avoid the lobster’s claws, hopefully their peaceful relationship lasts.

Plastic in the Ocean….

You may or may not have heard of the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch”, basically a concentration of garbage in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, thought to be at least as big at the state of California. Here’s a very interesting article at on the subject.
