I think at a certain temperature mycos die, so you could bake it... I could be wrong though. I'll get back to you on that.
Raven is too small, I'm waiting on Mystique since she's nice and big, it will be easier to perform on her. Her slime coat was building up this morning. Going back tonight to bring my little brother home and check on my fish as well.

Oh he'll be fine with any fish, boy/girl/baby, doesn't make a difference to him. As I said, he's very passive and almost takes out his aggression in a passive aggressive way lol It's kind of funny really. Just double up the mesh/divider so it makes it harder for them to bite through, that will happen with any gender of fish so don't worry about that.

I actually feel the opposite, I just want to take this tank down and completely restart. There's no way that I'm putting these fish in other tanks even if they do survive, most likely the disease will follow since it's internalized by now. But I'm sorry about your girls as well I know it's not fun, especially in the beginning stages/middle stages.

Okay. The dividers I use have small enough holes that they can't bite through, but have terrible ventilation, so I'll have to make them bigger. Anyways, he will probably be sharing a divided tank with my very mellow male, Zeus.

Yeah, I sometimes double up on plastic mesh/plastic canvas. It makes it so that it still has the nice big holes for the circulation but makes it thicker so they have a harder time sticking their mouths/fins through the holes to bite and whatnot ^_^

Uploading pics from yesterday today. I was way too tuckered out after the game yesterday of which we lost: 36 to 13 lol but oh well. I think I mentioned that already but meh, w/e...I'm sleepy.

Mystique came to my mom's with me tonight because she's already pineconing and that's my sign to get the ball rolling, she'll be euthanized in the morning and I'll be getting to school earlier to do my necropsy. Classes start at 8am in the particular room in which I'll be doing this so I hope it goes quick enough. Watching her right now she's having issues with her swim bladder and staying down or swimming in generally really. Doesn't help that her pectoral fins are deteriorated soooo she basically doesn't have much to propel herself, poor girl she hated the ride over, that's for sure.

That's fine Pet, yeah I saw your post about not getting the females :-/

So Aurora, her twin Stardust and Phoenix which are the last of my original group, have been very bloated lately, almost like organ failure but they don't seem effected by it at all. I've seen them poop and it's been fine, same brown curly kind so idk what's up with them but I try not to feed often, the whole tank only eat's maybe 3-4 day's in the week which I kind of feel bad about but at the same time, since they're all sick it doesn't seem to matter anyway.

Anywho, pictures of Aurora



Her scales are also raised in some places like by her tail where the end of her swim bladder would be and right behind her pectorals.



Phoenix before eating :-/


Stardust, her wounds from jumping have not healed either, her fins did but not the scales, they've turned yellow.





What Mystique looked like before euthanizing.



*Note* Mystique's scales look super pretty under the microscope.


Asaria seems to be happy lately



Mononoke is terrible at taking pictures, she's always so darn blurry!


She's such a bully but not really, she doesn't nip but she will plow fish over if they're in her way lol, she doesn't hurt though. But I love her blue! It's a real blue!


And this is the tank as of right now....it looks so....barren :-/





Black CT girl's 3 gallon, grass is growing nicely


And Rembrandt's tank which is nice and GREEN lol, but the grass is growing VERY well here!!




And the monster himself


LOOK AT ME I'M PRETTY!


Keep looking I'm still PRETTY!


*Pant* oh man, being pretty is hard work!


You can't see me!!!


Catseye is doing well, she's got a pretty blue sheen over her scales. Unfortunately she seems to be developing cataracts in both eye's, definitely in her left eye (one pictured here) but I think also in her right eye as well.

Annnnd, yeah I need to trim her side of the java moss :-/ it's got this horrible algae on it that my snails won't eat apparently, I have one Ramshorn and many MTS.


Aero's got a boo-boo on his head but otherwise is still super feisty and silly!


His tank as of right now, I switch it around at each water change basically.


So those are all the pics I've got for today well minus some of Raven who was half dead but I didn't feel the need
