Stretching The Limits ~ 極限所能


休息是為了走更長的路。

To rest is to prepare for a longer journey ahead.

~ A Chinese saying

My initial plan to push the Dragon Eyes Pearlscale fries to grow faster is hampered by the drastic weather conditions. One moment it was so hot and humid and the next moment torrential rain. In this weather conditions, it would be foolhardy to feed the fries aggressively to hasten their growth rate; one wrong step could potentially wipe out years of hard work. Slow feeding means slow growth, and slow growth means slower culling as their flaws are less obvious to cull.

Though things have slowed down for the pass weeks, I am still kept busy with more frequent water changes to dilute the acid rain. Life  only got a little easier finally after the 4th culling of the Dragon Eyes Pearlscales yesterday. Some day, some where, some things or someone would break if I do not slow down a bit on goldfish breeding. So for the next few months, I hope to channel my focus  on filling the orders for my goldfish artwork.
