Youd be surprised! A friend of mine who has absolutely no idea, has put them 4 gappies, 2 angelfish, and a pleco in a ten gallon tank!

Gappies started breeding like mad (she was wondering why do they have swollen bellies every now and then?) and after a year the angelfish and the pleco have grown to monstrus proportions and she was still wondering why. I told her as soon as i spotted the black dots on the guppy belies.

After two hours of explaining i got this: Oh right, i thought i saw a small fishy in there the other day, and i thought it was my imagination. :facepalm.

Wait, I thought Sapphire and the CT were in the same tank together and had a fight. Not the 2 VT's. I thought Neon always was in the 1g. ??

Nope the CT had Pop Eye did not change him after all. Treating him for it. Hes a bit better and breathing less hard he had a lot of amonia levels then when he was in his care where he came from. So Red Crown stayed in his qt tank. I noticed this beofre I moved him so i thought maybe Neon might use his 5g he did like it, 5g for him is perfecrt, he loves it but he di have that tazzle with Saphire whwich sucks but oh well **** happens I sence then got the Divided stronger anchord and Neon is by himself at the moment till I egt the CT cured which will take a much shorter time than Saphire's healing wound plus I need to keep a closer eye incase of fongus or infection. The CT is doing much better with his breathing he neded to stay QT. :) Hope this helps somehwta Laki.

What kind of injuries did Sapphire receive? If it's just torn fins he can go back in the divided tank. Just keep the water clean! :)

It's just torn fins Laki but I think is a little easier to keep him in hs quarintine tank for a few more days to make sure he's completely alright. Is just what I think is best but He's go back I also buffeted the filter and I'll fix the sucking part as soon as I get pantie hose. I haven't got the cash right now I have $1.00 in my account will get some later on next month.
