wow. I want to have a sorority tank one day. I'd really love to breed eventually. But for now I'm happy with my two boys and they're not much of a hassel to take out if necessary...I think starting out with 30 would be over kill for me LOL. Im sure once I get the hang of vacuuming I'll be able to do it with the fish in there no prob :)

Christina .. thats funny.. this blue fish will probably be the one to get himself vacuumed up.
That is how my mom's very 1st Betta died. He was a crown tail and his fins got sucked into the filter intake tube and was dead by morning when she found him. She cried and never got another fish, she didn't want to go through the heartache again. She would shop for his fish tank decorations and plants like she was shopping for a new baby in the family and was in the pet stores for HOURS! She really loved that Betta!

thats so sad :(. I don't think my intake is that strong bc I have seen him swim near it before without trouble... but better safe than sorry.

I can totally relate to your mom. Since I'm at college and away from my dog and cat my fish are what I put my time and energy into. I really hope your mom decides to get another fish someday.

My little guy swam into the side waterfall of the filter to get some of his food out (he eats like a pig, so when he saw some of his food get sucked up in there he got really mad *lol*)
when I saw that I laughed. I was looking at him one day and he did it again just for fun I think.

But my question is when siphoning your tank are you supposed to keep the fish in it at the same time or should you take them out before, I take him out before, I always thought it stressed them out to much.

some people take them out, others leave them in, theres arguments for both sides that they equally cause stress. i dont take mine out because i dont think the netting and removing their slime coat is very good for them. id rather have them a little stressed with the syphon, although mine are curious about it, than take their slime coats off.
