+1 to everyone else. However, neon's, corydoras, and glass catfish really need schools. They may seem fine without them, but why not give them the best happiness levels? In the wild they school for a reason, and just because they are no longer in the wild doesn't mean they lose their instincts. I don't mean to sound harsh.
I'd love to get my GlassCat a few buddies, but my LFS has to special order them. They got some in recently, but they may/may not be there when they open again, and I don't know if I have the money to buy a few more.
However, in the meantime, Dragon's made a friendship with Leliia, almost as if she is his school. I just watched them for about 5-10 minutes, and he's just following her around, looking frantically for her when he loses her from his sight and swims straight back to her.
And you don't sound harsh. |D At least you're making your point and not strictly saying "You aren't allowed to do that, they need schools" which... in my opinion sounds harsh only because it's so short and the person (in this case, me) is already doing that. xD; Really, "not allowed" makes it sound like the "advice-giver" is the person's parents. Kinda crazy, but... yeah.
Again, he would be in a school from the day I got him... if only the Petsmart I got him from took better care of their fish.... Poor Ghost Catfish were yellowish except for Dragon... D: And I keep reading that it's hard to cure a GCF's diseases... I didn't want to take the chance and wake up with nice, fresh, new dead fish in my new tank.
Blah, as much as I'm typing tonight, my fingers will be aching in the morning lol.... Stress is killing meee... Must... play with fishies. |D
