Inaccurate according to YOU. I said I they are happy and healthy, you have not seen the fish so DON'T assume that the fish in any way in pain, they don't show signs of being unhappy, there is no disease that is apparent so PLEASE stop telling people they are doing something wrong.

Ok people this is crazy. What Bryon is telling you is based on FACTS, NOT opinion. He's telling you this to educate you on how to care for your fish the right way, so they'll be happier healthier and live longer. And arguing is childish, listen to want he has to say. He isn't a Super Moderator, because he doesn't know his stuff.

No, it is not according to me, it is according to those who know more than you and I combined. And pain is not the issue, stress is. And you have no way at all of knowing absolutely whether fish are under stress, any more than I do, by simple observation. You obviously have not read the article on stress or you would understand what is behind this. The science is there, ignore it if you will.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I am one for science my goal is to be a vet. So don't tell me how science works when my strength is biology. I love marine, the gouramis are fine I am telling you.

This forum is all about opinions and experiences , If you dont want to hear others opinions or criticism then dont post here. Some of us have been keeping fish longer than some of you have been alive and respect should be shown at all times, theres no reason to be nasty to people for showing concern over the health and well being of your fish. We are simply trying to educate those that need it, and those that overstock, dont do proper water changes, need a bit of advice. ALL JUST MY OPINION THOUGH.

Yes hanky butr he is saying that the fish are under stress, when they are completely fine, he said earlier that stress will lead to a slow and run down immune system, obviously that is not the case if they are still fine.

Ok Bryon there's nothing else we can do, if they don't want to learn we can't teach them. Owell I guess it's true what they say, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.
