I didn't have the greatest of luck with 6 girls in my 10 gallon. Two are gone now because of stress-related reasons, but the other 4 are doing good. I just don't know about 11 in a 10? Mine is not an NPT but its planted and cycled.
Yeah it seems like a lot but I have another spare 10 gallon as well, luckily. It is still cycling though. I've been looking on Craigslist for a 20 gallon tank which I plan to get within a month.
So I just found a 30 gallon tank set up on craigslist and they are even willing to deliver it...lights,heater, tank, stand, filter...they don't have the hood but I can get one for pretty cheap online. Gonna be awesome for my beauties once they arrive :D
Don't worry CatwOman, I am where you are right now and it sucks. I have hardly had any time for my fish over the past few days because this new medication I am on makes me extremely drowsy. I have slipped on water changes again in my fry tanks and so I am trying to get back on top of them.
It's so easy to burn out in this hobby so I have to be really careful with the number of fish I keep now simply because it happened in the past when I kept splendens.
So I am super ticked off about AB, or rather a certain seller from AB right now. I was told by both transhippers that the flights for my fish were delayed until the 21st and the 24th. Less than an hour ago the seller informs me that my white fish has been here in south Florida, at a totally different transhipper since June 6th. wth?
I wrote to them....will see what happens.
Catwoman, I've been in the same boat as you are currently, a lot in the last few years, so I know it sucks! I'm actually dealing with a decent case of it right now, but not as bad as it could be. I always feel like my fish help bring me out of it a bit. Probably why I keep spending more and more money on them. I hope that you can work yourself out of it soon and find the energy to spend with both your daughtors and fish fast. *hugs*
Now, onto the topic at hand __ my want list of the night!
