They are gorgeous! What type of tanks are they going into after QT? A bit of IAL might help with the stress/possible fin issues. Being shipped, sold, and transported to new homes is stressful, I am sure! I felt sorry for mine when they arrived....having been in a bag, inside a dark box for 2-3 days during shipping. (And no telling HOW they were handled in transit!)

Well I used AQ Salt for them. It has done wonders for my fish. The tank is a 10g divided tank that makes them be in a 5g each. I hate to say but I decided to go on the fish cyckle route and they are alredy in there new tank. It's what's easier for me. I know a lof of change for them at once I should have known a little better than to get the first stock but I could not help mysef. And I mean the will let me know what's wrong with them, the fish I mean. I've already got there personalities and stuff almost down. The pictures to my tank are in my profiel I'm tire of posting pics on here unless they are of the boys.

My tanks are virtually too small to cycle! LOL! I try to acclimate them slowly and carefully to a new environment, and they seem fine! Right now, I have 2 in their own 5 gallon tanks, 2 in their own 2.5 gallon tanks, and one in a 3.3 gallon tank. The ones in the 2.5 and 3.3 gallon tanks are just there temporarily. I have 2 new 5 gallon tanks to set up, and anotehr one on the way. NOW i need to find a PLACE for all of them! LOL

I know I want another 10 g or 5 g to get a divider or two 3g the point is I want another extra fish! Oh i have a question I might as well ask it here. my CT is breathing hard and has some sort of black thing in his gills. My neon used to have it but he's much better now. :)

Could it be ammonia burn? My first thought off the top of my head is to do a partial water change. When did they go into their new tanks? If it was today, sometimes mine do that for a few hours after being introduced to a new environment.
