The disaster was some kind of crazy algae that took over my entire tank in less then a week and killed most of my fish...not to mention STUNK up my house! No one could tell me what it was...even had my breeder stop by and he said in his 30 years of breeding & keeping fish he's never seen anything like it! So i stripped everything...took the tank down to nothing and started fresh...Just have the few survivors in there now..havent bought anything new yet since redoing it 2 months ago

Well lets see who's left...
Pleco...he's getting his own 30gl in a few weeks
1 blue sword
4 neons
1 "penguin" tetra
1 "lemon" tetra
1 rainbow
1 cory
1 Kuili loach
3 shrimp

Everything common seemed to live...everything exotic & rare died!

I love rams too...Thanks,i will...need to get over to the breeders house before he moves to GA...he already got rid of half his stock. But he said he's got alot of stuff to give to me like Co2 systems,tanks..including a 75g & a 250gl & a bunch of other stuff he wants me to take...he's trying to get rid of everything so he doesnt have to take it with him & can just start fresh when he moves...My girlfriend is not going to be happy when i bring this stuff home and load our house up with it!
