My prized white female has dropsy....this is not looking good....

Trying to get all of my fish over here ASAP, but my boyfriend is being a lazy....grrr...anyways.

Started getting the ten gallon set up...getting it upstairs is a whole other challenge in itself. -sigh-

Yea, she was. She was in a sorority. I'm scared that *all* of my females have it now. If they do, I'm going to pull all of the plants from that tank and make it a giant QT and put in all fake plants for them to hide in. I just don't know what to do....Those are the only two that have had issues. Both of them are still alive. Clementine just..well...she's still alive. Neither will eat, but both are still alive.

Hmm... Yea. A similar thing happened in my sorority. I ended up losing a few girls, then I jarred the survivors cuz there weren't enough to have a safe sorority, and, when the other fish in the tank all dropsied and died, I completely broke down and sterilized everything.

Got into an argument the other night with my mum as she wanted Betta macrostoma and I do not. Managed to convince her that a pair of these would be just as good, if not better.

I've had them in the past but they died from something bacterial not long after I got them (they were pretty pricey too).

I think I read b. macrostoma are hard to breed? The killis look beautiful.

Sorry about your fish, Hadoken. :( If you haven't tried it yet, 3 tsps of epsom salt per gallon and Kanaplex.

Well, we don't have a leak. The problem is condensation from the air conditioned unit. It puts out about 20 gallons of water a day. The builder is putting rocks and sand down for drainage. He also set our sprinkler system to come on at 3 in the morning. The garage door is still messed up. Someone is coming tomorrow to fix it.
