SOOOOOO i went into DJs aquarium, and found a BEAUTIFUL little vt boy. Oh i didnt buy him because of the following.
OK the males HAVE a large maybe 24 bay display tank, and only 8-10 fish are put into it. the other males are kept in these:
each corner has a hole.
So while i was looking i stacked 4 dead fish on the counter, then pointed out 3 more dead floating in a bubble of fuzz looked like this:
So after that i pointed out a few males in their female tank then pointed out how to sex a fish, pointed out the fin damage on the girls is prob from the males in the tank.
THEN noticed they have the beginings of fin melt through their containers and tank (male display tank)
we you can see WHY i didnt bring home a baby huh
SO then i went to the OTHER decent LFS and drooled over that splotchy boy again only to notice he looks like he has the begining of columnaris and was pineconing a little i was heart broken and the other little yellow and blue tail boy who i also loved looked like he was getting fungus on his tail.
so thats my day!
