So.. first off, the stock that I HAD is in my signature. So far I have all my fish EXCEPT 4 of my harlequins. I originally had a stock of 10 but then lost 2, then two more, then some more... Due to the 'white stuff' that grew on one of my Harly's that i thought I was going to save cus he was swimming better by the end of the day, I last yesterday (at least I think it was the same one) but everyone that has died has shown the same symptoms as the one that recently died, so I'm led to believe its a a fungal/disease infection.
So now i only have 5 harlequins left. which leaves me with a delima...
Do I just restock them... or do I re-home them to someone else that has a school? I really don't want to spend 40$ to buy just 4 fish to have shipped to me. Which means if I restock them... I'd buy from petsmart again even though it was their original stock that has caused me to go through so much money in fish. Before I do that though I'd get a 10g QT tank so that I don't get an infected tank again.
This is why I'm debated on just rehoming them via Craigslist. Obviously i will only rehome to people who already have Harly's (or going to finish their school), and have at least a 20g tank... I'm not going to give them to someone who's just going to put them in a 10g. This will allow me to just get a new school of fish and I'd feel better about paying money to ship fish from a reputable website.
So... thoughts? I'd LIKE to have a school of Rummynose Tetras, or some other nice fish. I still have all 8 of my neons that at first had been dying left and right, but now I haven't lost a single one for a few weeks now.
Obviously I won't be doing anythign until after this treatment is up (sunday) and I can go a month without a single death to make sure everything is fine.
Any other fish recomendations?
I was also thinking... or just rehoming both Harly's and Neons, and getting, perhaps a few 'larger' (use that term loosely) fish that do well either in a small group (like 3) because I like the idea of having pets I can name and identify... I feel bad when i look at my harlys and neons and go "You all look the same...... except you fatty" lol
