I'm going to do a water change now and start treatment. They didn't have copper safe but I brought back the free crap they gave me and bought one that is similiar to coppersafe. I only have to add it twice as opposed to 7 times. And I don't have to do a water change after the initial one.

This sucks. I have been to the LFS twice today and it's not that close.

So I did the treatment. I'll have to keep an eye on my fish and make sure it doesn't look like the medication is affecting them badly at all. If it does I'll do a water change and I guess use some activated carbon to remove the medicine.

Hopefully that doesn't happen because then I'll be back to square one.

Nice to see you back Boxer, was getting worried, lol.

Yeah, the Congos are beautiful. Hopefully they don't get the ick or die from the medication. Sigh.

Quick update on the puffers guys. Two of them ate bloodworms today. The first day only one ate. One of them FREAKS out when I feed them and swims up and down in the corner like a lunatic.
He calms down when I back off. I am only feeding them every other day.

The Betta is getting more confident. He didn't spend ALL day in his corner. He came out a bit. The house/castle Charlie put in there is hollow, I had no idea. It has a little opening that is maybe 1.5 CM by 1.5 cm, and he swam in there and sat there with his head sticking out! I hate to admit it, but the damn thing was cute. I ran to get my camera but he was alright out when I got back. I am getting as bad as Xeek.

I have to admit he looks awesome when he flares up and struts his stuff.

Stupid Bettas.

Don't worry, like kids to me. One is ok, but I sure as hell don't need more than one.

And I don't like other people's.

That's cause you have to spend at least $40,000.00 with them in the past year. Or it feels like it at least!!

LOL. We're in there so much they know our phone # off by heart from putting it in the computer for our points.

We've been there 7 days straight. Today was supposed to be the day we didn't have to go, and we had to go twice. This afternoon the manager said, "Well, you'll be in tomorrow won't you? You can test the water for copper"

Um, no. I will not be there tomorrow. Or the next day, lol. We have all the fish we need right now. And the ick has sucked some of the wind out of my sails.

Our fav girl there wasn't in yesterday when we bought the icky fish. She came in later. Now she's gone to Scotland for 10 days. Maybe we won't go back until she returns.

Yeah right, lol. I still don't have a Master Test kit so I'll be back before then to check my water parameters.

Glad you got the Clowns sorry about the ick and to treat a tank that size would be pricy did they supply if for free?

I am treating my 120 gallon right now I saw a white spot the cotton stuff on one of my rainbows yesterday its gone now probably nothing but I treated anyways since I have the scaleless loaches so I have a yellow tank.

My clowns are really growing they are the such a cool fish Hopefully the black skirt tetras leave yours alone my sister has discus with her 8 loaches and hers hide all the time mine are with the other loaches and rainbows and are always out

my tank is full now with fish so I won't be adding the dennison barbs at this point everyone is growing and it would be too crowded

I am looking for some fish for my 30 gallon though my pleco is sulking because he is by himself now
