Never heard of that one. Another thing to check out I guess. The things we do for these fish

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Congrats on your new girls!

Have you had a sorority before?

Or will you be dividing the tank?

I have read a lot about sororities and I am too scared that they will hurt each other.

Prana (deep blue/purple CT female) Fluval Spec 2

Qi (turquoise CT female) 5 g riparium

Vanilla Beast (Ivory apple snail diffusa), Watson and Crick (Amano shrimp), Tributary (Moss Ball aka AquaTribble) Fluval Spec V

Mr. And Mrs. Smith (assassin snails) 0.5 QT tank

Leopard ramshorns 16oz NPT Mason Jar

I have had a sorority before. They did great until I moved to a different city and the water killed all of my fish. I was dosing the water with three times the regular amount of Prime to try to combat it.

The two biggest girls - the red one and striped one - have been battling it out since I put them in the tank. Their fins are shredded but I know they will work it out. They are leaving the little one alone. They are worse than a group of chickens. Tomorrow I will be getting another two or three so that they can start it all over again. I'm mad because I forgot to put all the fake plants in before the sand settled so the tank is all cloudy again. I just hope my four live plants have enough light still. It takes me a few minutes to find the fish because it's so cloudy, but when I approach the tank they all come up looking for food. The little beggers.

That must have been a terrible loss.

I recently acquired a new Lee water changer for $10 on clearance but it is 50 feet long so I may have to trim it before it can be useful!

It was. I lost fish from eight tanks including goldfish, bettas, cichlids, and my favorite 2-spot pike cichlid.

That's not a bad buy on the water changer. I have two Pythons, one is 25 feet and the other is 75 feet. I use the 75 footer when I do water changes and I now use the 25 footer to wash the dog and add water to my box turtle cage.
