Fortunately, it's a gourami and it can breathe surface air. :/ I'd seriously try to catch the tetras but actually, I no longer have anywhere to put a tank and I still need to figure out how to treat Fabio the king betta for parasites. I think I'll have to treat him in his 3gal and kick the snail out. I already kicked the nerite out of the 20gal.

Why is this so complicated.
Can you add extra surface agitation, like a bubbler or something? That should help a bit.

These gnats or whatever they are in the house are driving me crazy. People in this area are having trouble with them right now. I'm going to have to buy a trap thing for these tomorrow. |:<

Olympia, I'm afraid to because of the oxygen and plants. They seem to be doing okay now. Otherwise, I'll lower the water level so the filter makes more of a splash.

Congrats on the tank, Bacon!

I want a ghost knifefish next.

I'm out of room to save fish. The fish I saved all turned out healthier than I thought and are thriving. :) Turnover at the Sakura Rescue Society is a little slow.

Fabio the king betta is now in a hospital tank in the garage being treated for internal parasites. He is not happy.

Champagne is not happy. Possible bacterial infection? No fuzzies. Only outward sign is a damaged and bloody pec. He was breathing heavily this morning, and hasn't move from his plant perch.

I added a bit extra conditioner in case... but don't know what to do otherwise.

I wonder how he got a damaged pec? AQ salt, 1 tsp per gallon, to ward off infection, as long as he isn't acting bloated. Poor Champagne. :(
