Crisis. I am in a crisis. The problem? My large fish tank has a leak that is only small but large enough to be a major issue for the here and now. It’s 12:30am…no shops are open for help. I’ve had to take out all of my fish and put them into a small tank with water colder than they and I would prefer.

Probable outcome – Some fish are going to die.

The tank that is leaking has many snails and shrimps, they are simply too small to catch and it will be impossible to find them all once the water is drained as they bury and hide.

Probable outcome – Some snails and shrimps will die.

My aquarium is heavily planted with various kinds of plants. Most started out as a small bulb or patch but has spread. There is no room in my other tanks for any more plants.

Probable outcome – My plants will die.

Repair kits take a week to become safe before water can be introduced so I wont know if my tank can be repaired yet. I wouldn’t mind spending another £300 on one but the thought of losing my pets is painful.

Only thing I can do – Make a pot of tea and sit down. Try to relax and take things in their stride. I keep getting a lot of bad luck coming my way recently and it’s hard to take it all.

I chose this tea to help with my stress stomach ache and the mate should keep me awake for the next hour or two so I can continue to drain the tank and try my very best to save my aquarium friends, or as many of them as I can.

okay, i have had fish tanks and i’ve had all sorts of this tank (pardon the irresistible pun. saran wrap pressed against the leak from the inside will hold it for a wee bit…. give me a second to double check something… the trick is to find something that works with water IN the tank, but is not toxic to your buddies….BRB.

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
