Soooo I should probably update, right?
My HM girl from CJ (the one that was in the 20g) is slowly going into dropsy. She's in quarantine with ial, Epsom salts, and kanaplex (dropsy is the only thing I've used it for, and I am careful with it- I recommend against its use quite a bit but the one thing I always say to use it for is dropsy.), but I'm not optimistic.
I hate how so many of my fish spend their last days in a small, bare quarantine tank and then are euthanized. I feel like I'm keeping the fish prisoner on death row- they spend their time in a bare cage, despite that I know (with 95% certainty) exactly where they're headed- to be killed. (The death penalty is horrible and an absolute tragedy in real life, by the way)
The benefit to having fish die suddenly on me is that they never go through that stress.
In other news, the date of my local club's auction was announced! It's tentatively set for April 6... And this time, I'm going. I'll have to set aside a budget but this could be my opportunity to make a spontaneous decision and stock the 20, get more plants, etc... I think most of you reading should know me well enough to know that I am not walking out of there empty handed, no matter how much I loath parts of this hobby right now.
I have threads I should write up soon... Keep an eye out!
