I'd start with betta, cories will drop like flies in an immature tank.
That's right. They do best in an established tank.
I suppose my 1st (maybe) month i'll be filling it with substrate, plants and decor.
Once finished with that I'll add in some schoolers. Has anyone had any experience with Tiger Barbs and bettas? Aq Advisor says I can trade that upside down catfish for atleast 6 tiger barbs.
Bubbi, is it possible . . . your amano has parasites? Can they get parasites? o.O I honestly have no idea how to even treat shrimp. I just know they're very sensitive to copper and most medications have copper in them.
Thanks Sakura! I had been doing th AQ salt, but when I went downstairs to check on both him & Auggie, he had passed away. He was in really poor condition to begin with & I wasn't expecting much. At least he died in a clean, warm environment where he was loved.
Dawn isn't always right. If the people on MFK say it's okay and they're saying it's okay because they have successfully kept them together, then go with MFK.
Thank you.. Yes I got kind of upset at Dawn saying that, so I signed up for MFK just to use their search feature. I told her I'm not getting ropes anymore but I will. I can't imagine she'll ever look in the photos section of TFK and see that I did. I hope she doesn't because she really knows how to scold. I asked if vegetables are safe for bichir, because I read people feed them veggies, though it didn't sound right to me, and she ranted at me as if I'd been feeding bichir a vegetarian diet or something. It was an honest question. She also told me they'll never eat anything but live food, while MFK has bichir keepers saying they've never had a bichir that couldn't be trained onto pellets, even wild caught ones. Whereas I'm planning on a frozen diet most likely. I don't know, not asking her about them again, that's for sure..
Anyways, she didn't really answer my question that I asked. I wanted to know if my diet was nutritionally balanced. I asked her if I should include a fish vitamin and gave her some links and she said nothing on the subject.. Ugh, sorry ranting in a public place.
From what I can tell though looking through MFK the diet I'm planning is fine, so that's good.
