    I was hoping for girls. :( Shouldn't have gotten babies I guess.

    Helping people can get a bit dull. My friend in real life just got a tank and has been asking me all these beginner questions and I can't deal with it.. I've been telling her to google this stuff and lent her a book. Generally speaking I hate talking about fish because people are just so wrong about so many things (that sounds a bit narcissistic, I know).

    You think that one might be a male? Sakura was saying female for both, they are so small still and I am no good with that stuff. The red one is a lot more rough around the edges, picked it up first since the tail was clamped up so much, but seems to be doing better now (got them Friday night as sort of an early birthday present). Both look pretty emaciated from the top though... I'm thinking to maybe start a small scale rescue in September if I get the utilities included apartment I'm hoping for..

    Yep I am back... I feel a lot less pressured posting as a regular member... I had so many PMs about people's sick fish though that I never answered built up over the months and I feel pretty bad about it. At this point I don't even remember that much about diseases anymore...

    I was pretty much over bettas and then somehow I ended up with these. -sigh- They were just so tiny and pathetic looking. :/

    Hey I have a male veiltale that has internal parasites and someone recommended you. If you could read the thread we were having, its titled 'can bettas get to skinny?' by me. How do you recommend treat him? He lives in a 5 gallon.

    No, no, no, it's totally okay! I was actually hoping it would happen. >w> Lol, I got a little upset when I didn't see any originally. I lost track of it, so now all I can do is hope that it survives Mace. It's done a good job thus far though.

    So, I'm not sure how the heck it's taken me this long to notice, BUT I found a hitchhiker in my tank. :P It's a teeny tiny snail! I thought I did a good job of checking all the plants over when I unpackaged them, but apparently not haha. xD I like it, though! I love snails.

    Hi, thought I'd try a visitor message this time. How are you? It's been a while since we talked. Anyway, we're going to be taking care of my sister's roommate's fish and I wanted to make sure that the equipment I was planning on using would be disease free. See, for water changes, it'll probably be Danny's old stuff and I'm thinking of putting the fish in a spare tank I have. My question is, these things would have all been rinsed (especially the water change stuff) but I haven't like disinfected everything or anything. However, this stuff has been sitting around totally dry for months. My understanding is that aquatic bacteria dies when dried out so everything should be just fine, yes? Thanks for your help! Hope you're having a good month!

    I didn't know what I was dealing. I treated him with aquarium salt and that seemed to work for two days. Then it all went down hill so fast that I almost euthanized him because he was in pain.

    It was a baby placo. Think I can kill the bacteria with bleach
