hrutan I have been growing a planted tank for a few months now - maybe three? For my betta smaragdina. Not sure how long it's been, actually, but the first post of the smaragdina is two weeks after I started it.

Anyway, progress report.

hrutan It was super cold in there, and there were too many fish in the tank. We weren't sure if it was the chill or the lack of oxygen or what, but the ones I took were fine when I got them out and in clean water and into a warmer room.

Don't they go through worse in shipping? How do they survive that? Was it very cold in there?

hrutan I'd love to hear about any reply you get. I know some breeders that absolutely swear by AmQuell in their fry tanks.

Seachem has proprietary info; they say so. Sometimes they admit they don't know. Sometimes their explanations and answers are opaque or ambiguous, mostly because of their apparently weak language skills. But they try. They're set up for it.

I hadn't dealt with Kordon before (a Canadian company). I just sent them a perfunctory little note. Next time I'll be a little more direct and aggressive. I'll withhold judgment until I hear from them.

That's the reality of fish auctions. They're bagged and left to sit around on the table all day.

Nonetheless, sounds like it was a fun event to attend.

Hallyx Indeed it is. They don't have the customer service oriented website that Seachem has. Their site claims that bacteria and plants can use the fragments that Amquel Plus breaks the nitrogenous compounds into. But I remain skeptical. I guess I have to prod them again for an answer.
