Just put the second and final dose of medicine in the 220. Here's praying the treatment doesn't do more harm than good to the loaches and plants.

That Betta gif could be a jpg for all the action that is going on. Yawn.

Tonight all 3 of my dwarf puffers ate for the first time. I feed them blood worms every other day. The first time 1 ate, the second time 2 did, this time all 3 did. They were piggies too! I am relieved.

All your fish every night? Wow. I'm too lazy. I put them in my Silver Dollar tank once or twice a week. I used to do it more but Byron suggested I do it less. My Rainbows get them once a week if they're lucky. The puffers every other day.

Well, just checked on the fish in the 220, as I did the second dose of medication today.

All the fish, including the loaches, seem to be acting normal, EXCEPT THE BALAS, which I thought was weird. They're all hanging out in the upper corners of the tank. Strange. The Congos, Skirts and Clowns are swimming around business as usual.

I don't have as many tanks as you do though I was told by my lfs to do flakes/pellets in the morning and bloodworm or brine shrimp in the evening because my loaches weren't growing the queens especially so I have for quite some time now my sister only feeds bloodworm or brine live and frozen shrimp I found that when I fed the brine shrimp that they would poop it out undigested and then eat the poop again so I don't give it that often

Gross!! (The eating the poop bit)

I started feeding my Silver Dollar tank more than once a day (not every day) and my nitrates started going up, Now I only feed any of them once a day. How often and large are your water changes? Probably bigger and more frequent than me.

Man, if my Balas die tonight I am going to be really pissed. Hopefully they're just being weirdos.

For only having a point and shoot camera, you've gotten some nice photos of the congo tetra! Hope everything is okay with the Balas.

Thanks Koi! It used to take half decent pics but Charlie messed it all up. It's a miracle I got those pics of the Congos. Usually I just make videos of everything because they turn out better.

God willing the balas are just goofing off.
