Yep, both petsmart guppies died. One died the next day, out of nowhere, Then a week later I noticed the other had what I think was a kind of fungus on its side. Hours later is was dead. Petsmart sucks. They looked perfectly healthy too. I am so hoping it was nothing contagious.

The guppy from my lfs and the honey are doing great. No signs of illness, active, etc. I'm going to keep a close eye on them and if they continue to do fine I am going to get a few endlers from my lfs next week. Already have a quarantine tank set up for them!

kjg1029 lol, i cant stand being hot when i sleep, infact i sleep with my window open almost every night...even in the winter sometimes lol

hgual22 Alright awesome! And yes, my room is uncomfortably warm. It took a lot of getting used to sleeping in here.

kjg1029 yeas id aim for two weeks, and they should be fine since you said your room needs to be warm for your other animals

hgual22 Yes, I am definitely going to quarantine the endlers, my main question is if they will be okay in a bin with no heater for a few weeks. It would stay around 76* because of how warm my room is, and they would get daily water changes.

How long do I quarantine? Is 2 weeks long enough?

kjg1029 i would rather risk the new fish dieing, then all the other ones because you didn't qt, but yeah for a few endlers id say 5 gals would be okay, just make sure you change the water alot.:)
