    Algae makes me wanna rip my hair out. I'm thinking of pulling the fish out of my 20 and bombing it with Algae-Fix. Hopefully that will kill the snails too.

    Yeah, some posts on google said they can but I dunno. If they do, I guess they do. If not, I won't be disappointed, that's for sure.

    The guppy/swordtail fry will probably end up being Sparky food.

    Err, not really, no. They're sort of plain. The guppies that you buy in pet stores all tend to be poor in the genetic area. If you want nice guppies, you have to get them off aquabid or from local breeders. I'll definitely have some koi swordtails because I don't have a male guppy. It's just a matter of who drops first, the guppy females or the swordtail females. I won't be able to tell if they are swordtails or hybrids for the first few weeks.

    No kidding! My estimate was waaaay off. o.O Yeah, I've been to Murphys (my grandmother got married there) so I have a mental pic of the area.

    I'm trying to figure out what to do with the guppies. I don't know if I should keep them or *gulp* sacrifice them to Sparky.

    It had to be like 15 mil or more. Wow. I have no idea what I'd do with a house like that. Oh wait. Yeah, I do. I'd fill it with fish.

    So I just found out guppies and swordtails can hybridize so I may have some interesting looking guppy-swordtails too. o.O Wow.

    Enjoy your vacation. :) Don't get lost in the caves and beware of bat guano. :D

    Yeah, my swordtails are the ones that look almost like koi. I was so thrilled when I just happened to find them at Pet Club. Hopefully the fry will look just like them; I want to start a line of these guys because they're so attractive.

    If you don't want a huge population, definitely don't get a male. I just know with livebearers, if you have one of each, you have babies. Lots of them. It's why my guppies are separated now. My swordtails are still together but that's because I WANT babies from them. But the guppies? No way.

    Just read amano shrimp will eat hair algae so maybe ghosties will too?

    Guppies and platies might nibble at it. I'm not sure if Siamese Algae Eaters eat hair algae. They might. I know they eat red and brown algae. Just not Chinese Algae Eaters. They don't really eat algae at all and they get big and mean. >.>
