Oh im sorry to hear about your Orange Cromide. I had that happen with a lovely angelfish that I was treating also. He perked up and then just died and I had got really attached to him. Knocked my confidence a bit after that. Yr right..it is a constant challenge! This little tank with the BBG's is the smallest Ive ever had and its caused me more problems than all my other tanks over the years put together. You never stop learning do you? I have a 2 yr old little girl with Down Syndrome who has started to get very jealous of the tanks and the amount of time I spend looking after them, so Im now restricted to doing my maintenance late evening which is not ideal..its 1.40am here and im still faffing around lol
I have been keeping fish off and on, as a young kid. I am now, 37 yrs old. I have 7 wonderful fish tanks at the moment, that I will take care of to the best of my knowledge, until the tanks are slimmed down from old age. (Work just consumes too much of my time, to enjoy simple pleasures) I don't alway know what I am doing. The tanks I have now, I just try not to make any changes to, new fish adds to the risk of disease.. Tanks that have been exposed to disease, It's a constant unsure battle. I just lost an Orange Cromide in my brackish tank this week. I was treating it, and thought that it was looking better, so it was very sad to wake up and find that it had passed on.
your tanks are absolutely beautiful! Really interesting unlike a lot of run-of-the-mill tanks Ive seen on different forums. You really know what you are doing dont you?!? How many years have you been keeping fish? x
