Why some doctors are the way they are
Hopefully we all know doctors who followed their bliss and are working with medicine patients and surgery, living the dream.
I don’t think that is the majority.
I am sure that there are 50 reasons why someone would end up being a doctor of some kind.
But I think a lot of doctors are doctors, because their mom said so. That, regardless of what the child’s proclivity might’ve been coming to school, his or her mom said “you’re going to be a doctor or a lawyer! And that’s the end of it”
I really do believe that some of the doctors we see are there because it’s the career that was picked for them By well-meaning parents.
Which brings me to my next point, and that is “bandwagon thinking”
That, anyone who keeps up, anyone engaging modern thought, thinks the same as the majority as they cycle through one fad after another. There is a long list of things that the medical community both human and animal side have latched onto and fervently believe in, because it’s the latest thought.
These days, in both medical professions human and animal, the establishment is the emperor, and the latest “thing“ are the new clothes. And you have to decide where you stand on these issues.
I am 10 years away from the end of my veterinary career, and, I am a practice owner: I don’t have a boss or a company to tell me what I think, so I have less to lose with dissenting thought than my contemporaries. This will become increasingly true as more and more of my contemporaries are merely employees for a corporation that will specify their belief system, preempting the need to form one.
So eventually it won’t matter. “Mob thought” Will be specified in an employee handbook.

Pro Air 60 Aerator is a VERY high output air pump pushing my whole fish room (17+ drops), and I have one at home driving everything there, and I have one as a back up.

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
For me, filtration-of-choice
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
