    I guess I'm lucky my brother left home for college and that was that. He's lived on his own now since 1997, on the east coast. In a way, I feel like an only child.

    He sure was a pesky little endler in my tank. Never left my regular guppy alone, stuck to him like glue. The thing is, I never saw nipped fins on the guppy and he has a pretty black tail. Have you seen some of the aquabid guppies? Wow.

    I have such a weird effect on fish. They don't grow, they don't spawn, and they don't surface feed. o.O You'd think I kept them in tiny tanks that were never changed, with behavior like that. I feel like, between the snails and the fish, I must be doing something wrong. Not sure if I'm going to keep the 20gal running or just tear it down.

    That's a bummer about your sister. :( As someone only 2 years older than her, I can say that's no way to treat a hard-working parent who is trying to help.

    Haha, yeah, well, too nice is definitely better than too strict. My parents are on the too nice side also so I know what you mean, though. :)

    You don't QT your plants do you? How do you avoid ending up with snails?

    I will try and get some photos of it. It is in an awkward place behind our dog crate in the kitchen so it can be difficult to get anything flattering haha. It is one of my favourite tanks as I only do a water change once a week and don't need to prune or fiddle around with it too much now everything has grown in and established itself.

    It was really great meeting you too! Now that I've seen you, I'm pretty sure I saw you at the betta show but just didn't know it. Your mom is really nice too. :)

    Haha, thanks for taking the endler too. He was driving me (and my guppy) crazy. XD I'm glad the rummynoses are already colored up. Being schooling fish, they do tend to be timid but I think they'll definitely get used to you soon.

    I got mine on fostersandsmith.

    That's crazy about the differences in price. o.O I have an Azoo palm filter but I haven't used it yet; I meant to switch it with a filter I have running in a 3gal and never got around to it. I think it's a pretty good filter though I'm not sure how noisy it is. That reminds me, I probably should switch them tomorrow during water changes.

    I'm sure they'd eat flake too or even the betta food. What you may end up doing is feeding the bettas first and feeding the rummynoses at night. On the other hand, they may get more aggressive for food if they have to start competing for it. In my tank, their only competition are two small male guppies. They also tended to let a lot of food go by and then would later pick it off the sand but I don't think that's normal feeding behavior. Fish in my care rarely act normal, for some reason. o.O

    I'm not 100% but I think the Fluval Shrimp and the regular Fluval Stratum are almost identical. And I totally know what you mean about the amazon site. :D

    The rummynoses are acting perfectly normal so I have no idea what caused their tiny bout with ich. They are swimming and schooling actively. I didn't feed them tonight just so they'll be hungrier and eat more readily for you. I've been feeding them New Life Spectrum Small Fish formula pellets and a variety of frozen foods but they will almost certainly eat anything as soon as they adapt to it. They only thing is they are midwater feeders as far as I can tell. They've never swum up to the surface to feed for me.

    I think we should be there somewhere between 12-1PM, most likely 12:30PM. I still have your number so I will call you when we get closer. The phone number I gave you is to a phone that died so I'll be calling on my dad's cell phone; if any name comes up it would be Jerry Monroe.

    Hey, I just noticed. I have the hood but I don't have the light strip. You can get a replacement Aqueon light strip at Petsmart for like $18. I'm sorry about that. :(

    Sounds good. My dad still hasn't given me an exact time on when he thinks we'll be there so I'll have to get back to you on that.
