He DID say that his computer crashed. Obviously he got it up and running, since he posted about it, but maybe it crashed AGAIN. . . and since his car is broken, he can't go get stuff to fix it right now? I really hope everything is okay!!! I'm getting worried!

Don't worry you guys! We all know how RL can get in the way sometimes. His computer might be down like you said. Or he has the flu and needs to be offline for a while *passes out happy thought hugs*

Any suggestions for a large fish that can get along with ropefish, tetras, and plants?

Wish I had some idea what killed the balas.
just out of curiousity how small where the balas when you got them ?

oh yes canadian just an update on an old chat we had about my balas not touching plants she was measured at 7" last night and still isnt eating my plants my molly's wreck them but not my two bala's i am amazed that nowhere online does it state that they only eat plants when they get to a cirtain size

i got myself 4 java fern this morn to hold the mollys back a lil but still keeping respawning plants for my main tank to see how long it is before they shred plants maybe i feed them too well and they have no intrest in plants the flake food i mixed has lots of algee in it so it could be that

Of course, if you've had your 'fix' and have decided that these aren't the fish you hoped they'd be, well. . . there are plenty of fish in the proverbial sea, lol! Will the shop give you credit or replace those fish, since they know that they came to you from them with ich already? Worth asking, I'd think. . .
chesh you hit the nail on the head there just reading back not been keeping on top of this post lately

i asked what size the bala's where because my friend had a very small baby go missing the only thing is his tank that would eat it even if it died is his clown loach and plec but his plec is mighty small and a doubtfull suspect try to get them at a bigger size also DO NOT add new fish 2 weeks either side of adding the bala's as bala's get extreamly stressed for some time after moving home and are very prone to infection of many kinds after they have settled in and like there home you would have a very hard time to kill them.

I hope this helps and hope you do try again and susceed with the bala's as they are truly one of the most facinating fish in the FW world
