No, I don't actually It's all either siphon (cleaned in-between tanks), or for the jars... Turkey baster for the bottom gunk, drain all but a smidge of water out, and replace with water from the bucket. I found that way less stressful on the fry :3

That seems like so much more work xD

But I guess it works, you've got healthy fish :)

Well... So there are tiny little thread critters in my DT spawn tank >< (I have java moss in there). I am assuming since the other tanks with the same plants (30 gallon) does not have these little things, everyone has been eating them. Looked it up... Apparently it is "planaria" which is harmful but people hate them. Bah. They'll feed my fish :p

Since I will be rehoming four fish, and one will pass away.... Also soon clearing out the grow out tank (30 gallon) I will be changing some things around for the remaining 7 males and 6 females.

30 gallon: Sorority for CT, CT, PK, DTgeno. Was going to go with the other two PKs, but they are quite aggressive (sisters).

10: PK and PK females. This is the tank with the acrylic placed in the center.

10: DeT + SDeT males

10 Giant.

10: Spawn Tank

10: Secondary Tank for Spawn Tank (divide amount of fry)

5: DT

5: HM

5: CT

2: EE

IF I can find the other part of my divider, EE and CT will be in the 10 gallon divided.

Still have the 40 unused... Would like to divide for 4 males, but we'll see :) Also have another 2, plus four 1s (quarantines). Also would like to get those tanks off of the floor... BF needs to place a bracing back on the shelf he built then that can be used for jars, while the tanks on the floor can be placed on the table that is currently holding jars.

Second last picture is the quarantine corner... The two PK sisters came down with minor ich (picture was before adding a heater to the 1 gallon) and Lucille (petsmart betta) has dropsy -.- Everything used for them is sanitized thoroughly, and not used for anyone else until the problems are defeated. Lucille's stuff will be boiled, with a vinegar and hot water 50/50 solution.

I really want to get more of those black tier shelves...

Yup Going to try to cut down on what is used, by putting a sorority together and such :3

I've got the new fishies in the jumbo jars xD They don't seem to mind... I gave them each something to explore.

So nice! I'm jealous! I feel so bad for Lucille. Try a big Epsom salt bath and then a kanaplex follow up? I don't euthanize for dropsy, I try to treat it because I know that if the fish loses its will to live, it won't last long. I have a very big "lets give it a chance attitude"!

Well with dropsy, it seems to prolong the problem... Even if they live, they are weaker and more prone to everything... I would not want her to suffer that way :( currently she is just in warm clean water.
