high cost of living and more people living in condos with strata's, the aquarium hobby seems to be slowly dying here.

Vancouver needs 24/7 transit.

Now that is an awesome sign...

Despite it's name, looks like a nice little town from googling it.

Well anything that fits in it's mouth. Best to be a species only tank, or large tank mates like freshwater sting rays.

We just had another hummingbird at the hanging basket right outside the window. A tiny thing this time. I mean they're small anyway, but this was not much bigger than a bee.

Was it a hummingbird or a hummingbird hawkmoth, perhaps? I first saw one of them when I lived in Hong Kong - fascinating!

Good heavens, I never knew such a thing existed.

From those clips, other images and a bit of googling regarding sizes I'm confident it was a bird. Hope so as moths are ugly buggers.

I probably over exaggerated (or under ) its small size as it was quite a bit smaller than the one I saw there previously.

Although the earlier sighting could have been a monster moth.
