Yeah, I know it stains. I used to get betta revive when they sold it and it turned my decor greenish/blue.

I started the fungus treatment but how is that going to help? Does it treat things other then fungus?

Did you know Furan 2 also has methelene blue or so the internets told me.
Quote:
Furan 2
Active Ingredients: nitrofurazone, furazolidone, methylene blue
Diseases: bacterial infections
Contraindications:
Furazolidone and nitrofurazone are carcinogenic agents.
also- does anybody know if monster fish keeping changed their name to aquaria central? That's where I found a big list of fish meds and they have the M logo from monsterfishkeeping.

Choco - my petco is horrible. Almost every betta I have gotten from them had an ammonia level over 5.0
yesterday there were many that looked dead but weren't.

So its like tropical fish keeping and here?
I like to look at the pics of the giant fishies

I was at lunch today with my mother and her friend. Her daughter is married to some guy named Byron and she was complaining they have too many fish in their house and thats why she does not want to go there for thanksgiving - like 25 tanks - big tanks - and a fish pond in the living room. And sometihng about raising tilapia. I want to go to this house for thanksgiving...

I much prefer to eat shrimp, crab or lobster. Tuna and salmon are Ok as well.
Aren't tilapia rather large fish? how does one riase them in a house?

Let's stare at the wall some more but from a different angle...

Maybe he's blind, tiki? lol

I didn't say frozen food for snakes, I said dead. The thought of it freaks me out. But everything needs to eat.

Could be, but he was staring right at me from under a leaf earlier.
