I know people use fishing line and nylon cord. I have aquarium safe silicone to attach things and fill in the holes on terra cotta pots... It was only like $4 at menards, if you are interested in that. I think its safer than cords/strings because it specifically says aquarium safe and can't tear fins.

Its cuz i'm worried about them rubbing against the ends of the fishing line that i only use it above the waterline with the hammocks. Nylon should be fine, tho i should get some silicone for later decorations.

Did big water changes on everyone.

Demi has dropsy. =(

Kalec's eyes are still big, but he's been on maracyn and espom for over a week now. Switched him to just epsom and clean water.

Omgosh, I just now got to sit down xD But now everyone's tanks are fantastic! here's proof! (more pic spam, xD)

(sorry for some blurriness)

"I'm Nyx! I have a constant tiny fierce >=O! "


"I'm Vol'jin, I have no time for paparazzi!"


"And this is our flat, we're tankmates!"


"I'm Acheron! And I hate my cup! >=( "


"And this is all mine! >=O "


"...and this is my girlfriend, she has a new tank setup too!"


"And I'm Toothless =D! "


"This is my cozy home <3 "


Seiya and his tank got cleaned too...


And of course the sorority earlier today


And just for kicks, this is my fish room(s)

Part of me thinks I should've tested how much weight that crappy table can hold ^^;

And mommy is bushed.

Oh no :( dropsy is such a horrible thing. I wish it didn't exist :(

Your tanks look amazing - I didn't know you had so many! I think a gallon of water weighs like 10 pounds. That's a lot of weight, lol. At least it is holding up right now, so that's a good sign.

Thanks!

Yea, it seems to be holding real well.

But Demi didn't eat yesterday, or today.

But here's a pic of my little Nyx, so cute and so terrifying~

Today I had to put Demi down. She hadn't eaten since the weekend, developed Dropsy, and today columnaris......I didn't want her to suffer anymore, and I dont have the option of expensive meds.

I'll miss her. She was probably the happiest fish I've ever owned, and the toughest.
