So here is my tank experiment update for you all.
As you know I was having a problem with my minnows in my betta breeder tank. They were vanishing randomly and I was down to 2.
I have purchased 5 more and with the remaining 2 they have been set up in a 5 gal with 2 mystery snails and 3 small albino cory cats(short term ish till they get too big and will be moved to a new tank)
In the betta breeder tank I have purchased and placed two feeder goldfish.
This experiment will show that is the minnows vanish/die in the 5 gal but everything else is alright then it is the minnow and my tank is safe for breeding.
If the goldfish die and the snails are still alright then, I know it is something with the tank or water and I need to set up a new tank and probably junk this one for anything fish related.
I will go off of my current findings by Saturday and see if I am ready to proceed on breeding from this point.
