So, yesterday I also had my opaque VT Ace pass away. He was always on the sickly side, but I tried so hard to keep him alive in his final hours. I buried him under some leaves and put some tank water and gravel on his grave, so he could always remember is home.

On a happier note, Jodi-Lea is having a massive stock of fish! She's selling all her show stock and I have my eye on this little guy to get on the weekend! So Excited!

Well, I guess this has been a bad week. Stu has now fallen ill, and his chances don't look to good. I really hope he pulls through. I'm so worried. Plus, how do I clean the tank with the bleach solution?

Aww im sorry :( What exactly is wrong with him?

Why do you need to clean a tank with bleach?

According to Sakura8 it's an internal strain of acute colonmanaris (?) Also, if he passes away I will clean the tank out, but I'll have to disinfect the entire tank (beacuse it's divided)

I think you use 1 part bleach and 10 parts water. Then rinse, rinse, rinse. You can set the tank out in the sun to make sure you get all the bleach out.

+1 and you can rinse it a few times afterwards with dechlorinated/conditioned water.
Sorry about all of your fishie troubles :(

Well, that just sucks, Magnum. I am really sorry about your bettas. I know you care for yours well, so I am guessing whatever it was hitched in on the new girl, unless it was just Stupidly Bad Luck paying a visit...

My guess is, a trip to that sale of show stock at Jodi-lea's (of course I do not envy you for living nearby to that, not a bit, not a jot, not even a skerrick!) is going to cheer you up somewhat. And the new job! (I have my fingers crossed for you, there!)

Thanks Aus ! My mum and Dad let me get two new betta's on the weekend so I still have room for one more! The strange thing was, is that the new girl was in a completly different tank from the boys...

As for the job, I hate it. I'm going to re-apply back at my LFS. To bad Jodi's place is still a 40 minute drive, or I'd be working there!

Sorry guys for being so in-active this week. I've had a case of the cold and was sick with a stomach bug last night.

On a brighter note, I GOT A PUPPY! He's an 8 week old Australian Cattle Dog boy called Charlie.

Oh wow, never thought I'd be away for so long. I really need support right now though.

Ive been sick for two/three weeks now and feel tired and exhausted because of the pressure of school. I applied for School Leader, and Im disapointed because I dont think I'll get it, I have an influx of assignments and social life activities, a new puppy and now, my beautiful Spike is slowly passing away.

I have no idea where I am or what's happening atm.
