    How do you say goodbye to your dead fish?

    Mine go to the flowerbeds outside. Although if it is the winter and the fish that died was small I have put a couple in the indoor potted plants...

    Choice of Fancy Goldfish & setup

    Orandas and moors are my favs. I've currently got a couple types of sword and two moss balls in with my black moors. The one moss ball has about doubled in size since I first got it so it seems to be surviving their trimming attempts very well. The moss ball has even 'spread' itself by...

    How crazy are these stocking ideas?

    Personally I'd be more worried about the puffer in a community set up then the female betta and d.g. Yeah that one could be a problem, but I have seen dwarf puffers in with cories before (not mine) and none of the cories had tails left

    Treating betta for ich

    I've treated for ich with just heat alone a number of times. So if the amount of salt and when to add it is worrying for you, I say just don't bother with it till you can get home.

    Naming fish

    I only name them if I can recognize them and differenciate them from each other. Thus the goldfish and bettas have names... and pretty much nothing else does. Though I admit to naming the couple mystery snails I had at one point
