    So are these 2 short tailed males?

    What do you think Gremlin.... am I right? Are these two orange commons short-tailed males? I see the tubercles(sp?) on the gill plates... They are both about 5 inches long, possibly 6 with the tail This other one (red+wh) has the look of a male--the long fins etc, and he has showed breeding...

    ... or are platies entirely neurotic? I think my sunburst platy finally snapped last night. She's been getting progressively more strange for weeks now. She looks perfectly healthy, no fins pinned or flat... but has spent the last two weeks hiding out under a bridge decoration. And as far as...

    Preemptive parasite treatment?

    I know with some other types of animals I've had over the years you don't wait for signs of parasites... you just assume they have them and deworm (horses and barn cats for instance). Does anyone do the same thing with pond fish? Or is that just too hard on their systems? If you do though...
