^^^ sometimes, I tell members I dont like that I'm a man, then a woman, and keep changing it to confuse them.
And yet... There's a pic of me in my profile. Sigh.
And metal, I hear ya, ugh :c boooo.
Rant: why does baller have such nasty fin rot? We can take such good care of our fish, and yet they fall ill, while others dont care our love them, and they live long and in fair health? (though not as happy)
...makes me sads :,c
It's just like how a human can take extra good care of themselves, but still get struck down by a random cancer/general disease. Sometimes it's genetics, sometimes life just sucks. It's a sad truth, but human and animal alike we have to deal with it.
I asked that question a long time ago. Why is it that I hear people say that they have their fish in a 10 gallon by himself, cycled and eating the perfect diet but they end up dying of dropsy or something? Then you have someone who keeps theirs in a half gallon with once a month water changes and they throw a few pellets in every now and then and the fish lives for 4 years.
My Mom constantly tries to use that against me, citing that maybe how we care for them isn't right, which is why my fish are "always sick", even going so low as to say thats why basch died...a really low blow. I loved basch, and he was painfully struck down by the fast acting strain of columnaris...
But if you're keepling it in sub-par conditions, then you probably wouldn't know it was sick. Or care, really.
And you usually won't hear about dead ones, only ones that have lived a long time.
But mom is much too dense (I'm being nice..) And stubborn to even consider the logic, which I'm not sure shed get anyway.
@Ectangelo, if you're a girl, that's probably why!
@p3 Genetics. Some fish have bad immune systems I'd agree. All of my boys have the same wc schedule, same tank, same food amount. Wraith gets fin rot all the time. His tail is always scraggly. If I only had him I'd think I was a terrible fish Mom!
