My husband's philosophy: just put some fish in and see which ones stay alive. If it were up to him we'd have a bunch of fish eating each other and dying from ammonia poisoning.

That's why I'm the designated fish goddess of our house. Which means we should all be praying for my fish LOL

What was funnier is I got excited and rushed to show my fiance, who just looked at me with a blank stare as I showed him the vial. Number 1, he likes fish but leaves the science to me, and didn't really understand the significance of it. Number 2 - he's color blind lol

Glad you're ammonia problems are behind you, too!
This is how my Wify looks at me when I get excited, I was excited about how my fish finally stop freaking out when I stick my hand in the tank to do clean up. Although this had one side effect, I used to be able to take off the guard on the drain to clean it, now I cant because the fish have no fear and swim up to my hand; I have to quickly cover the drain with my palm.

My wife said she used to get the fish that only live a couple days???? I was like what fish is that? I never heard of a type of fish that only lives few days. So now I always tease her, because she wants a puppy; so I ask are we getting one that only lives a few weeks

I am glad your tank is back to normal with all the fish healthy.

LOL good times. I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets excited about these things! (I'm also

Yeah I can't imagine which fish would only live a couple of days, and that puppy comment is hilarious!
