    Decisions are back, and it has been a while!

    B) Decline. Further discussion is just fueling the fire.

    In happier news; our Indian leopards, Sthaan and Sundar, have welcomed three cubs. What is the gender:

    A) 3.0?
    B) 2.1?
    C) 1.2?
    D) 0.3?

    Some more Great Barrier Reef fish suggestions, plus two interesting seahorses, for the aquarium:

    Palette surgeonfish
    Ocellaris clownfish
    Snowflake moray
    Yellow tang
    Leafy seadragon
    Weedy seadragon

    More species will likely be suggested soon.

    C) We've had 1.2 cubbos.

    A fierce rainstorm hits London. While no one was killed, much of the African precinct was damaged by the storm. Should we

    A) Close down the whole precinct (Risk of losing guests but easier repairs)
    B) Close down only the damaged parts (Guest placated but more difficult repairs)

    A) The precinct will be repaired quickly with money from the Royal Slush Fund.

    Our Indian leopard cubs have been named. The male has been named ‘Kahn’; the females have been named ‘Kiva’ and ‘Mira.’

    The cubs went on exhibit this week, but a fire has broken out in the compound and is spreading rapidly through the exhibit. Sundar has left the cubs on a platform, which is in danger of being engulfed by the flames. Keepers cannot access the cubs as Sundar is still in the exhibit, and she is refusing to come inside and abandon them.

    What should we do:

    A) Tranquilise Sundar? (May put her in danger from the fire)
    B) Attempt to extinguish the fire with high pressure hoses? (May blast a cub off the platform - don’t laugh)
    C) Use a helicopter with monsoon buckets to douse the exhibit?

    I know we're busy with decisions, but let's keep suggesting species! Perhaps a ruby seadragon?

    I think that is a bit overkill. No aquarium I have been to has had more than 2 turtle species, let alone 5.

    The aquarium is where I really wanted to let loose in terms of creativity.

    I don't think the Atlantic sea nettle is from the Indo-Pacific.

    Oh-sorry. I may have made a few mistakes. I found these in a book about Tropical aquatic life and I tried to find the ones that were from the Indo Pacific, but I must have missed that one :)

    Another list coming that I made from a boom that was called Fishes of the Indo-Pacific, so there will be no mistakes there :)

    Also, last time I checked, green morays are from the Atlantic Ocean.
