I know BasementBettas feeds her fry that... I've heard good things. By the way, you reminded me- I have been dealing with a fish with dropsy for close to a week now by doing daily baths in high amounts of paraguard and Epsom salts and administering kanaplex orally. Thought you might be interested to know since this is the most success I've had as of yet with the condition.

If I could design my own food it would have lots of garlic and some spirulina.

Riverfront is having a big sale, by the way- http://www.riverfront.ca

That is a good mix to save the fish Matt. The key it seems is getting on it early and hitting it hard. Ive read articles that say dropsy can often be the result of a bacterial imbalance in the fish gut. This triggers a parasite that is almost always present, the immune system fails due to its weakened state. Let me know how it goes with your dropsy fish if you can save the fish it would be quite an accomplishment.

Cookie is very aggressive now flaring and never leaving Jupiter alone. He seems confused and some what scared lol. Poor boy has no idea what to do or even build a nest. The barometer is falling and you can see it in the increased activity in the tanks. Saturn is guarding his nest with his life. Storm is all v striped and Bullwinkle has a small but growing nest.

Thanks for the heads up on the Riverfront sale Im going on Monday and need a bunch of fish things.

Cookie in no danger of getting beat up she pursues Jupiter constantly flaring at him and doing the dance. Jupiter may be thrown off his game with this lol Cmon dude she likes you! He just looks un interested in the whole thing and has no bubblenest.

Nice pic of the pair. Hopefully they figure it out soon.

At least they both look like they're in good shape.

Maybe you need to let Jupiter see what his brothers are doing, lol.

good luck with it all, I love reading your thread it's so interesting.

Do you plan to make pellets and sell them to others on the forum?

LOL Maybe some Barry White music. I don't know what to do now. Cookie is getting frustrated with him and is now giving him tail slaps after flaring at him. He isn't flaring back and looks intimidated. I just put some bubble wrap under the cup to simulate a bubblenest. Cookie liked it. I was caught talking to my fish again by family who thinks Im nuts. What is crazy about talking to fish? a thai breeder friend says move him to a new spawning tank then add her the next day. I just don't know what to do because Ive never seen it play out like this before.

I would leave them in until you're sure it isn't going anywhere, then recondition... Especially him.

Hopefully they just do it already hahaha.

So how are the other pairs?

It looks like we have some eggs in the Bullwinkle Storm tank but its hard to see so Im not 100% sure. Saturn never got a good wrap on the other tubby tuna Lambchop so they are being reconditioned. Neptune chases Tiki around all the time but she is very fast and stubborn. All the spawns are taking longer than I thought they would. I may steal another boys bubblenest.
