    I'm thinking of getting a 5 gal tank for my kitchen. What fish could I keep in such a small tank? I know a Betta, but I'm not that found of them or guppies. ADF I guess would be a good possibility. I'm wondering what you think? Thanks Amanda!

    The only reason I'm not going to worry about seeding from another tank is I read that the meds does interfere with the beneficial bacteria and does not differentiate from good and bad bacteria, it's meant to kill it all.

    Hey, hoping you can answer this for me Amanda. I'm thinking now of buying 2 of the Bosemani Rainbows from Petco that have been there forever! They now have white mouth stuff. It's not fuzzy - it sounds like it's a bacteria infection that is treated with Maracyn. So, I'm thinking if I do set up a 10 gal tank I have, and put a heater in it, I do have a filter I'm not using (way to big for tank, but heck), and put them in that - it would not be cycled of course, so I'm guessing I'd have to do WC like everyday??? Is this what people do just to treat for 5 days or so (I have no idea how long the treatment is), and just do WC if the hospital tank isn't cycled. Of course I could put some gravel in the filter from my other tank, but that wouldn't cycle it. Not sure what to do, but I feel sorry for these guys. They've been there so long and no one will buy them now. They are very cheap, however $7.99 each - a real great price.
    Need help!!! Gwen

    yes, I did get it . . finally! I will take a picture of my happy loaches - give me a couple days and I'll put it in the post.

    Thanks for asking. They are cute. Khuli loaches are nice too (don't know how to spell that) LOL
