I actually told one of the techs that we use formalin on fish and she was surprised. She thought we'd use it to kill the fish. O.O Tetracycline is also used on dogs. And metrodinazole is used for dog parasites, just like fish!

Kinda bummed out.. Today a retirement home called us about their cockatiel, he was shaking and ripping out feathers. The vet said it could have been parrot fever which is contagious to people. I also brought up the huge amount of dander the bird would create, and the vet decided that it's too much risk having the bird in an old folks home, we had to put him to sleep cause parrot fever testing is expensive. :/


Plakat betta, you say? Hmm. I don't think I'll have time to breed this summer. If I got the process going the first week of august, they'd be month olds by the time school started, but I don't even have a pair or anything. Maybe next year my fellow Canadians. What about wild betta? I feel like some mouth brooders would be easier to raise. I really love betta unimaculata, they are the largest species at 4.5 inches.

Yeah, about the formalin, I really don't reccomend using it when there are other effective medications out there. And if it is used, I don't recommend it 24 hour the way we do other meds; it should be a 1 hour soak and nothing more.

Poor bird. :(

Hmm, I'll avoid that one from now on. Dawn told me I should research the effects of it on plant life. Hehehehe. Giving me crazy ideas.

Can anyone find a list of mouthbrooding betta? All the ones I've seen list 5 species, none of which are unimaculata, so I know they're incomplete. -__-

Aw poor bird :(
*goes to google to look up unim... whatever you said they were* Yes those iridescent ones with the vibrant green/blue/red?!? Yes please!

Sooooooooooo
The hippy comes out in me.
My hair is so thin I'm literally afraid of it balding me. I don't even dye it!! :( Waaah it's not fair! So I looked up natural "shampoos".. baking soda is my new "shampoo" and apple cider vinegar is my new conditioner.

ah, that's just poor customer service

EDIT: don't blame the tech support, the companies they work for have these beyond crazy rules and regulations so no matter how much you want to help, the tech has to follow the rules. Even if they suck.

Sakura, that's beautiful. I know unimaculta is great in acidic to basic water, I'm sure some more of these will be.
