    My Paso is fun...they are an addictive breed!! And yes - smooth and smart too. I've not been out riding in almost a year. Fall is starting to settle in...I passed the February bar exam, been doing the lawyer thing since I swore in back in June. Promised myself (and my horse) a well-fitting saddle as a gift for passing the bar. I'm probably ordering one next month. Time to hit the trails some!

    Yes the small tank has been stable for some time now. It was a 5g but I moved the fish and filter and filter and everything into a 2.5g about a month and a half ago and that cycle is still going strong. The only thing that could have upset the cycle on the 10g was that I added an additional filter, and I only did that to help the cycle! Its so annoying...wish me luck from here on out....sheesh

    I'm not smart enough for a mule - hahaha. Right now I have a Paso that I like to trail ride with. It's starting to cool off some so that riding will be nice. The horse and I have not ridden in a year - so looking forward to hitting the trails some this fall.
    I think fishkeeping gets relaxing after time too - the first time you set up a tank it's pretty nerve wracking. Helps when you have good advice though!

    Oh sorry your page wasn't working. I thought you started to find me annoying lol. Glad you are better. My cycle is just a huge headache and I want to throw my test kit out the window.

    I see. I love my mini in my 2.5g. Perfect size IMO.

    So....What is it that makes the ATI hydro sponge filter superior to other sponge filters?

    Well I am established, so I suppose the stresscoat I bought will be fine for now, however, I couldn't use it during a cycle with a clear conscience /: I may be switching back to prime when I run out of stresscoat. Amquel plus doesn't detox heavy metals /:.

    I have heard that some slime coat things do burn the fish to "promote" slime coat production....Pretty morbid if you ask me....

    I did the math and at 4 drops a week, the 50ml bottle would last just shy of 5 years...Would it stay fresh that long?

    I believe Prime claimes to promote slime coat as well. I know stresscoat does not detox ammonia, but I don't know if that matters or not...To be honest, I also don't like the sort of monopoly seachem is running with that conditioner...but I am just one of those anti-mainstream types.

    So what is your opinion on Prime vs. Stresscoat+? Do you think it really makes a difference to the health of the fish? I just switched my betta over to stresscoat and I really don't know how I feel....I just switched because the bottle and dosage is more realistic for a 2.5g tank. The smallest bottle of prime would last me longer than the life of the fish, possibly double that, and I don't prefer that...
