We aren't bashing you, calm down. The members on here are just trying to help your fish.
"Playing by the books isn't fun" ? The books have hard evidence that a .5 gal minimizes the lifespan of fish. And the reason why the breeder keeps them in pickle jars is because those fish are breeding stock, not pets...
And what do you mean by "simple things"? Sure a pickle jar may be simple, but it's high maintenance! You should be doing water changes on every tank you have every other day (minus the sorority tank).
Maybe in a year you might have enough insight to breed, but before then, please take care of your current fish. I've seen far too many people on this site coming up and saying "blah blah blah my fish are fine and they live in .25 gallons and I never change their water and they have been alive for years blah blah!"
It just gets annoying that everyone on here is nothing but helpful to you and you go and say you don't wanna "play by the books" because it's "boring"? Please...
Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.
My opinions are based on research and experience. Ask for help!
