    Yeah, Malachite green works OK.

    Ich? One teaspoon/gallon aquarium salt and raise the temperature to 85*. Best done in a quarantine tank if you have plants. No plants? Main tank is OK. Stop the salt after 10 days. Keep at it. Try not to use chemicals. Good luck.

    C&J's and all that Olympic/dynamic stuff is 50% technique, balance and timing. Always good to keep your coordination up; strength-training can get you clumsy. Yeah, strength goes away fast. It also comes back fast, at least for me. Mass lasts. You are very savvy about drugs. Good on ya.

    Yeah, you're right, real "strength" is over-rated unless you compete. It's not all that useful in real life once a practical minimum is reached.

    My brother is a serious strength lifter, (1500lb machine squat...geez). Many people think he's fat, but he's around 15% bodyfat at 215lbs.

    He knows connective-tissue and joints take longer to toughen up than muscle.

    Cool. I was taught to alternate size training with strength --- a month or two at a time. Or alternate programs. That's what I did a couple of years ago when I was young. Bodyweight and a half for squats, a little more for deads and bodyweight for bench is strong enough for me.

    Watch yourself while you're still growing. Joints require care and attention. That's why I do reps now. My heavy days are over. Of course, you're going for size. Reps is you.

    I've been known to lift heavy steel things off the ground. Nothing serious, just an old guy trying to keep it together.

    Welcome to the forum.

    What do you breed?
