Yeah. I think that sale was actually from before Christmas. They didn't update the online flyer for a couple of weeks because of the boxing week sale, and just left the old one up. They had all the fish on 20% off, but we had no cash.

I had another bala die this morning, so I only have 1 left.

Jodie thinks she may have seen an ick spot on a black skirt tetra, and maybe a rope fish. Not positive though, it was literally one spot. I haven't seen it.

Are rope fish "scaleless" fish, like loaches? If it is ick, am I going to be able to treat for it with them in the tank?

I seriously hope she's being paranoid, and that it isn't ick.

I think I'll be returning the chinese algae eaters to the store the next time we go in. They have some weird brown discoloration on them, I wonder if they've been sucking on each other.

That tank is stressing me out. The rest of the tanks are fine.

Sorry about your bala hope ick hasn't returned bent fish passed away started swimming on side today's ago yesterday he was stuck to the inlet pipe barely breathing so I set him free my other two dennisons still doing great in the 120 my husband went to buy some Siamese algae eaters and they told him they only has large ones they don't eat as much which makes me think they were the false ones I am paranoid now about buying the right ones not the flying foxes or other fake ones I think I will have to take on that task

Ug! Sorry to hear you've been having such a difficult time over there. . . I hope it isn't ich, but keep a close eye out - it's way easier to get rid of when you catch it very early on. I'm not positive, I feel like the ropes are scale-less, but unsure. Either way, you can treat for Ich if necessary with temps and some meds are okay for them. I'm familiar with treatment options on loaches, though - and assuming the same would be true with the ropes, so you'll have to do more research to double-check. Hopefully it won't be necessary. Sad about your sharks - wonder what's going on there? I agree on taking those suckyfaces back. They're such neat fish, too bad they're scary!

Personally. . . I ALWAYS find it very nerve-wracking to stock a new tank. Hate it, actually! But there's much to be learned, and you'll work out the kinks and end up with a spectacular tank, I'm sure of it! *hugs* Good luck!
