Living in an older house in Hawaii means we are always on the lookout for signs of termites, both subterranean and dry wood termites. Finding active termite populations is always bad news and for aquarium hobbyists it mean moving the fish so that the house can be treated.

The good news is that the termites couldn't have come at a better time. Since the angelfish eggs have been infertile I don't have any larval runs going. I haven't brought in any of the planned new fish yet and I'm currently between fish babysitting jobs. So although I still have quite a few fish to move I don't have the numbers that I usually have. As I'm getting estimates for termite treatment, I'm moving the fish out and when we get those annoying termites taken care of we'll be back on track. Hopefully this will all go smoothly and will take just a few weeks.
