Tell me about it. I got three pregnate fish now and he seems intent on keeping them all that way. Im gonna have to get another tank for my babies. I dont know how many fish my 50 gal can hold. Even with plants and filter. I think some of y plants were real sensitive to the salt cause my westiera died and so did my jungle val. But the rest are holding up pretty good
