Don't put fish in the garage and rats in the closet. I have no idea how to do water changes on Sparky without shocking him because the hose water is like 65 F. But he's got like 40 ppm nitrates. I have to do a change in the next day or so . . . somehow. And the rats pulled the hem of my brand new dress into the cage and nibbled holes in it. T_T Brand new, dangit!

I must have nitrates in my water. Even my heavily planted, triple-filtered tank gets up to 40ppm in a week.

And honestly, I don't know how this guppy is alive. He has no dorsal fin; the loaches bit it off a long time ago. But he waggles along anyway.

Tiki, Kanaplex will be gill-absorbing but to target an internal infection, it will be most effective being fed.

Mo, that's a lot of fish. Good luck. :)

Sakura, maybe you can put the fishy(s) in a separate bucket or tank with a separate heater to keep that water at the correct temp. When the original tank's water is at the correct temp you can put the fishy(s) in the tank.

LAZORS! LAZORS ARE FUN! Well as long as you don't blind you'r self.

Or Sakura you could put the water in a small tank with a heater and heat it that why.

Yeah, I think that's what I'm going to have to do is take him out and put him in a separate tank while the water heats up. *sobs as she watches more money being doled out for fish heaters*

Oh, Fishy! I don't see why you can't use a Top Fin air pump. It might be noisier than a Tetra but it should be fine. I just don't trust their heaters, is all.

Sakura, I'm pretty sure at this point it would be easier and less expensive to heat a whole room at 80 degrees, and keep you'r fish in there. But I'm pretty sure you'r going to replay that you don't have an extra room, so I'll now stop.

INDIAN FOOD. ME WANTS!

I've noticed Poppy only bites when I have either just woken her up abruptly or I have just eaten. Most of the time when I have just eaten because hamsters don't have good vision, but especially Poppy since she is albino.

I need to check this website. Hopefully some new members!

And... I love my iPad Mini! It is perfect! I wonder if Admin would possibly hire someone to make a bettafish.com mobile app?!

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
