Faces of Fishblr?

So, that tag is going around and all you guys are freakin’ adorable, and I want to post pictures but I just came home from a very long day of various mishaps at work and attending a transgender health forum. I literally look like death. So, unless you guys want a picture of me looking like death, it will have to be postponed. LOL.

basic url peeking privacy

transhumanisticpanspermia:

oxbowb:

ive been fucked over by this and i was basically forcefully outed to my family because they kept staring at my screen and because i want yall safe and i dont want any of you to experience this consider these two easy safety measures if you have family/friends nearby with the potential to just downright stare at your screen:

  1. ponify your url - doesnt have to be the actual ponify extension, just download a random word replacer from the google store and replace your url to something like ((ME)) or <MYURL>
  2. use the omnibox - the omnibox is a default-turned-off feature in chrome that cuts down the url in your taskbar just to its root, so if youre afraid someone would read up on your url from staring at the taskbar since ponify wouldnt help that consider turning on the omnibox
    image
    go to chrome://flags and search for omnibox and then choose whatever settings fit you. its a little hard to get used to at first but i managed to get used to it under a month

thats it! even if you dont have any privacy issues please consider boosting this so a potential person out there could be saved from the shit i went through

also fyi, if you click on a link from inside your blog view on your dash (i.e. tumblr.com/blog/<your url>), and the link leads to a website (such as someone else’s blog) which has a traffic tracker, they’ve just discovered your identity, and can pin whatever you do on that website to your url.

only you can view tumblr.com/blog/<your url>. so if someone looks at their incoming traffic, and they see tumblr.com/blog/xyz as a referrer, they know that that visitor has the url xyz.

It’s Malingo Monday!

Today Malingo got a water change, some bloodworms, and did some flaring exercises as an apology for his future tankmate getting all the attention this weekend. I don’t flare him often and I’d forgotten how amazing his fins are when he gets all puffed up.

Help my other fish already died and now Anji has this big black spot on his body. It was never here before. How do I treat this?!

Did the other fish also have a big black spot? I’ve actually seen something like this before on discussion boards. If it is what I think it is, it’s, unfortunately, fatal, but no one knows exactly what it is or what causes it yet. :( Don’t take my word for it yet, though, especially without me knowing the exact conditions and having this one picture.
It could also just be a natural colour change, but it usually don’t happen overnight. How long has this spot taken to appear? Is the fish acting any differently than before?

No the other fish died differently. He was stressed and his slime coat started shedding. Then his eyes became cloudy and he passed away this morning. It happened in 1 day. As for this fish, this spot wasn’t here last night and now he has it.

What kind of setup do you have for these guys? Tank size, heating, filtration, water parameters? Sounds like the first guy was likely hit hard by a bacterial or parasitic infection. If it really happened in just one day, that&#8217;s startling.
I&#8217;m still trying to find out about fish turning black and dying (it&#8217;s not just bettas). I can&#8217;t find the sources floating around before, unfortunately. The only thing I&#8217;ve been able to find is that: &#8220;flesh turning black indicates necrosis or possibly a lack of blood to the area,&#8221; although it&#8217;s not known what causes this.
