Shiloh goes nuts in smaller spaces. But, he is also a tail biter so he has to have larger spaces x.x El Dorado is a drama mama so he never gets taken out

I actually bought those plastic containers they use in the fish store to put the fish in before they poor them into the bag. I can't remember what they're called. They hang on the side of the tank, so acclimating is so easy.

i just use the cups. :I float them for a while. they tip, so water slowly goes into the hole up top. i reflip them, though, so they don't drown. they're usually pretty chill in them. sometimes they get all excited about the redecorating and wiggle about.

:V i'd take bahamut's advice and bleach the tank first. i'm always scared of spreading illnesses, so i scald everything to death, but you may have bacteria that's resistant to salts and meds. o-o bleaching it will kick it's butt for good. >:B

i'd like a sorority one day. but ,for now, i'm happy with my boys and girls. :B

I did clean it.... but because I am terribly allergic to bleach, I do not own a single item that has bleach in it. I use vinegar and scalding hot water >:) twice over. and rinsed with scalding hot water. then scalding hot water. then warm water =D then cold water. then filled it -whew-. plus the sides and bottom were scrubbed, and the rocks were churned in a strainer in a large bowl, with boiling water/vinegar mix (equal amounts) and rinsed super well after x.x

trust me D: sororities are nice and all...but gah is it ever so much work xD


any tank that has had a death, or contagious disease gets torn down and completely cleaned. Which is why I rarely have it attack a new fish to a tank that previous had..say...flesh eating bacteria or something
