Is fin rot contagious? If it's not I'll see if I can't scrape the rest of the silicone off the 75 today and I'll reseal it tomorrow. It has to sit for 2 weeks after I do that because we live in a very humid place but I can dump three bottles of TSS in and hook up the two Emperor 400s for him and he can go in there in 2-3 weeks if it's not. I just don't want to contaminate my brand new filters and tank.

Not really it bacterial in nature, but has more to do with water quality and stress.

Okay. Maybe he'll go in the 75 sooner, then. Even if he ends up tailless can he have tankmates? I'm going to teach him to hand-feed to make sure he eats regardless of tankmates or not.

I guess that come down to how disabled he is. I have seen goldfish that were blind or had swim bladder problems that got along fine as long as you made sure they got their fair share of the food. Most of the time that what happen to a disabled fish they starve to death.

I won't be getting them until the tank is cycled, he's okay and I'm sure he can have tankmates but where is a good place to get quality fish without spending a fortune?

I have two sells a year one in the spring and one in the fall. I got goldfish if your looking for pet grade goldfish, I can fix you up pretty cheap. I put out a DVD catalog before each sell so you can see what you are really getting (30 to 60 second chips no stock photos). Since I can only grow out a limited number of fish a lot of these would be culls.

I'm looking for pet grade but good genetics so I don't have to be worried about what I'm getting health-wise like I would at Petsmart or Petco. Let me know when you're coming up on the spring sell. (:

Generally around the month of March depending on what the weather does. The fish I held over the winter have to be thinned to make room for coming years spawns so generally I have a pretty good idea what the fish is going to look like.
They are all from really good stock (I spend a ton of money on breeding stock). Much better than what you will see in the box stores. PM me and I'll send you a zip file of last catalog
