What aquarium in SF? I think I will wait to set it up for a while. I don't feel like getting rid of the 5 gallon for now and then the 2.5 I set it up yesterday. I will get the 10 gallon up and running when I get more funds to get a heater and a filter. So maybe after my Bday, it is only in April anyways. How many neons could fit in there? I was thinking a nice school of them and maybe some cherry shrimp or ghost shrimp. No bettas, that way my family will get off my back.
Oh that sucks. Did you try to get the plastic off or is it like super stuck?
I don't know what type of betta I should get, HM multi, HM dragon (if Petsmart gets those), plakat, or dragon plakat? The HM multis are expensive at Petco so I am leaning to go to Petsmart to get my next betta. I feel even though they have that disease prevention, they are usually healthier than the ones at Petco, since Petsmart has enough where they can sort of maintain them.
Oh, it will probably be a week or even more before we can make it that way. I think my mom wants to go shopping in Berkeley and I want to go to the aquarium in SF. One thing you can do for your dresser is put down a wooden board to even the weight. That's what my dad did for my 20g on my dresser. We got a pack of spare bookshelf shelves at Ikea.
Haha, no, my mom misplaced a plastic lid on the burner and because she can't see well, didn't even realize she put the cooking pot right on it. Turn the burner on, heat the plastic, instant flame. Have to get a new burner, the plastic is melted all over it.
DANG! That is expensive! Do they think your shipping a buffalo? Haha, $30 sounds fair... how long till you come down this way? Since I am broke as of now, I will have to wait about a week or two. I just need to ask my Dad if a ten gallon would be fine on my dresser lol. I may just purchase it and store it for a while. Once my sister moves out that leaves my other sister, her baby, me and my Mom, hopefully I get the room and can have another tank.
What are you cooking? I hope you know alcohol is not a good fuel!
Okay, bad news is it'll cost like $80 to ship the tank. For that, you could just pop over to Petsmart and get a new one. Good news is sometime in the near future, we're heading your way and we could just meet up somewhere. $30 sound fair? I'll let you know the exact day we're coming.
Once those cherry shrimp go in the small NPT. That is planted where you can barely see anything in the back because of three pieces of hornwort, one piece is literally like 3 feet long. There in the breeding box so I can put Kei in there.
Oh yeah Alala, it is a name of a female warrior, thought that fit well, she is in the sorority. She had a fight with the alpha. Let's say the alpha is a good strong fighter, when ever a girl fights with her the competitor is always beat, leaving a torn fin.
Hmm. Kei could just be a really aggressive female. My girls flared at each other for weeks before they settled down.
If it is eggy poo, she may not be hungry because she'll have eaten her eggs and that''s a lot of protein. Often, when they have parasites, they still eat because they're starving. The parasite gets all the nutrients so they are always hungry.
Definitely put her in 1 tsp of epsom salt per gallon. Eggy poo or parasites, it will help. If she is still not eating after a few days, we can try her in General Cure.
Yup, but, ugh I forgot the name, but she also has girls with beards so it is confusing. Yes I have pictures though, s/he was put in a cup yesterday in the sorority to keep her/him warm, all the girls came over, the Kei was flaring at them. That is why I am confused.
She also isn't eating, that's how two of the girls died before the sorority was actually setup. I am super worried if it is parasites.
Hmm. Katana looks like a girl to me, now that I've seen the pic. It can be so hard to tell with females, especially tiny ones. Parasite poo is usually more white than eggy poo and more stringy. Eggy poo is off-white, yellowish and while it can be stringy, it's kind of a thick string. If that makes sense.
That's fine, take your time, I am out of cash until next week pretty much.
Grr, Katana, or Kei, I think I am going back to Kei FYI, is pooping white. I made a thread with a pic of the poop, it is called Parasites? Hopefully you can help, since I don't know what stringy poop looks like.
