hey guys, I know its been a while since an update but I've been very busy. I've been traveling a lot and my aquarium has just been declining in health. Ely died last week from severe fin rot and bullying... I did my best to nurse her but she just would not heal and was secluded before I left, and died while I was gone. The new girl is really chewing everyone up and the remaining three girls have fin rot. The blue green algae is back but I'm going to do my best to get rid of it. A lot of my nerites died at the same time a few weeks ago from what I think is just old age, nothing out of the ordinary.. they just up and died. I got two new nerites a few weeks ago that are bigger. I feel bad I can't be here all the time but I think the amount of upkeep required for this aquarium is just getting ridiculous.. its like it can't ever just function without me. I know I have too few girls now, but they either die from disease or kill each other, and I've really had enough of it. I'm pretty sure I'm going to get out of betta keeping for now or i MIGHT just have one girl or something. If anyone is interested in any of my plants, aquascape items or anything let me know, I am going to sell them. At this point I can't really do much.. I'm blacking it out *again*, doing a tank change and having the AQ supplemented with stress coat. I love betta's and this has been a lot of fun but if I'm traveling for weeks on end, I can't keep up with the aquarium and I can't expect my room mate to know everything.. not to mention he works more than full time.
