    Yep, sure is! And we're trying! Cherche's fins aren't doing too well. But we hope your finned friends are doing well too! :D

    Just wanted to let you know that Aquasia's fins have grown back beautifully. And we haven't even bought the medicine yet! XD

    My fishies are pretty good....apart from a bunch of them suddenly developing fin rot. I HATE fin rot!!!! And, it's my own fault since I forgot to change to my "quarantine" siphon when doing water changes and accidentally spread the fin rot to a few tanks before I realized.

    Congrats on all your fish! I loved your new ones! You're up to 21!!!! That's awesome.... :)

    Yep. And wow, that's amazing. Of course it's a little okay to be paranoid. XD And it is a good feeling. Especially seeing your fish perk up a bit afterwards, too. ^.^ And I know right? Lol.

    Thanks, Veggiegirl! Congrats on the job at your LFS!

    Yes, I do have problems with the halfmoons over-flaring and wrecking their fins. Usually I find most bettas will get used to the other fish around them and gradually stop flaring as much, but this is not always the case. Generally, you can keep fins in better shape by keeping the fish in a smaller amount of water (less swimming around which causes wear and tear on the fins), but then you must do more water changes and I don't think the fish are as happy. So, I've learned to put up with some frayed fins......well, sort of....lol....it's always heartbreaking each time you see a fish has blown his fins.

    Hey Veggiegirl!!!! My fishies came last week....all 36 of them! One was DOA....and one has also died since arriving (no idea why), but that's still 34 new fish. I think I've bitten off more than I can chew though....lol....and will probably re-home a few of them, unfortunately. I wish you lived closer!

    Well, D'Artagnan is now being nebulised at the vet twice a week, so hopefully that will give the medication I give him at home a chance to take effect, so that he can gain some weight back. The others are all fat and perky. :p

    How is your menagerie going? How many animals do you actually have? One horse, a gajillion bettas... :p

    Hope you are well! :)

    P.S. I was wondering if you could point me to some good vegan recipes!
