- My mom kinda gets on my case if I bring up shopping online. She already is looking at me weird cause I'm going "all out" for this fish >.<
I always do xD I've learned that with my cats. Take tons of pics and eventually you'll get a few non-blurry ones. xD
What's PWC? I'm holding off on tank mates till I know that he's healthy, have the tank fully set up, and have more money xD plus research into what I can actually add.
- Thanks for the reply. I would have PM you but I don't know how to on here.
I had been holding off on naming him because I wasn't sure if he was healthy. I was trying not to get too connected to him and be hurt by his loss. I lost my two dogs this year, only 2 months apart. But I was also waiting for him to settle in and his real personality to shine through.
Where I live a heater is definitely needed. The temp can fluctuate greatly day to day, plus we have long hard winters. Sadly my local pet store doesn't do any water testing, but they do have the strips.
At the moment I'm treating him for velvet in a 1g plastic tank, but I have a 5g that is/will be his regular home - and an even bigger one downstairs, not sure of it's size. If I plan to get more I'd split that one up between a few of them. I think I'll just use bigger smooth stones for the bottoms, easier to clean.
I'll eventually get more pics when he's healthy and the tank is finished :) He's a bit camera shy so it's tricky.
- I know how you feel, hang in there. We both know you can do it. Try not to let them bug you, it'll make them look bad and you feel great. Let's show the world that Aspergers isn't a thing to be ashamed of :) . I posted this on theta's message board and thought you need to read this as well.
- Yes I do love the quote. I learned I had Aspergers when I was a freshman at high school. Till then, my doctors told me I have ADD. ADD is a joke now because so many people have this ADD, which doctors just labeled the issue. This is what I think, if you disagree, please tell me why, I'm intrusted to know.
- I have aspergers too. It's nice to know that there are more people like me out on the internet. Especially in the forum! I love animals (I kinda have a thing against humans, actually ^^).
My dad has aspergers too, and sometimes we fight because we are quite similar. I moved in with my mom because he was just stressing me out too much. Now I have 6 cats inside, 5 cats outside, and 15 bettas. (All in heated and filtered tanks)

Posted On: 02-13-2014, 09:21 PMWhat kind of water do you have hun? It would help if we knew the hardness and pH. And not all cichlids are agressive. Have you ever read up on Neo Brevis? Posted via Mobile DeviceLiked On: 02-18-2014, 09:49 PM
