    I did a good 40% change! (: I can't really get any live plants ATM. . .

    Sakura PM'd me back and said I should use a hospital tank for him with Aquarium Salt.

    I just have a normal bulb I got with the kit. It was a Topfin 10 Gallon Kit. What kind of plants should I get?

    It's definitely not the rasboras. All but one of my guppies are fin-nippers. He had some of his tail missing when I got him (december 2011) and recently it's got worse. I'm behind in my water changes, I didn't do one last week. So, live plants and water changes? Thanks!

    One of my male guppies has what appears to be a combo of fin-nipping and fin-rot. :P He's in a 10 Gallon with 2 other male guppies, 5 harlequin rasboras and my nerite snail. Is it the same as you'd treat a betta's fin-rot? If so, would the aquarium salt have negative effects on the other fish in the tank? Should I get a hospital tank? I'm going to my LPS soon. I PM'd Sakura but she wasn't on and I have to go soon. :/

    :D. Sure wish I'd had goldfish and koi back in the day when it was "Eat all your broccoli or no dessert."

    Thanks so much for the advice, I will try a fasting. I'd feel better if they ate the more wheat-based pellet since the temp is still 60F.

    Silly koi and goldfish won't eat the fancy koi food I got them because it floats. They don't realize it's there. -__- On the bright side, I found out they love chopped broccoli stems, which is great because I never eat the stem part, haha.

    Sorry, my comp is down and it's hard to type long messages on my iPad. Will resume PM when I get my comp back. 5 weeks, :(. Hope to start ordering things for the pond soon. :)

    When I get my pond up and running, I should name it in honor of you for all the help you've given me. :) You are such a wealth of great info. :)
