  5. BBF Drain Re-potting Here tis... First order of business was to dig out the errant water iris plants and one pandan. Tick ! Lug a wheelbarrow full of plants off to the spare pond to keep them alive. Tick, tick ! Back to digging out wet scoria (which weighs much more wet than dry) Grab stainless steel "skirt-thingie" and wrap in stainless steel flyscreen wire (thanx to Bunnings - your LFS :-) Tick ! Do a 'test' install to see if the whole thing looks OK. Tick ! Finally, run water and look for obvious problems. Tick ! Call it quits for the day, because Grover ain't gunna wash 1/2 tonne of scoria that came out of the BBF. Cheers, Grover

  8. I have a friend that rescues all types of fish and some of the photos that she shows me are OMFG cant even begin to believe how bad they are
  9. Ready for tomorrow... As you can see in the photo, Grover is ready to start the Herculean job of re-potting the BBF drain. Currently, it's a tad cold in Brisbane, so whether he will launch out of bed early and start digging scoria and plants out of the BBF remains to be seen. The GPGs are betting that he'll hit the snooze button and stagger out to face the music at 9:30am. Here is the "Before" photo of the BBF drain - Stay tuned for an "After" photo tomorrow. Grover (He chucked all that scoria in the BBF; now he has to dig it out, then throw it back in again!)

  15. On the other hand... The Universe doesn't really send you 3 bad things in a row. Sometimes it gets confused, and after 2 bad things it throws you a good thing when you weren't expecting it. Case in point today - Grover had the bright realization that the council rubbish bins were exactly what he needed. That would solve the problem of the water iris growing into and destroying the laundry basket. The laundry basket is all that is holding back the scoria from getting into the Billabong. And then being swallowed by GPGs. With nasty side-effects!! OK... No, he didn't go and run a bin over and make off with it. He went to the factory and asked nicely and scored the "skirt-thingie" below (which is slightly damaged already, but still just great for the Billabong!) That's the GOOD thing that happened (in case you missed it) Stainless steel, so it will outlast Grover and the GPGs. And will be used to replace this - Which actually worked well and is cheaply replaceable, but is plastic and therefore less friendly than recycling something with a longer life. Also, the water iris plants were about to destroy it by growing through the plastic holes. There you have it! The Universe gave Grover x2 kicks up the rear and then patted him on the head (as though he was a Border Collie!) Cheers, Grover
