    Hi, guys!

    HI everyone. I logged in to see how people are doing. My fish tank is fine. We were gone for 9 days and I left 2 dozen ghost shrimp in the tank. Got back and the ghosties are gone. My fish are all fine. That vacation feeding method has now worked for me twice, so thanks, Jaysee...

    why??

    I just left my LFS with my four new female cherry barbs and noticed that they have a new acquisition. A tank full of colored tiger barbs. Looked like injected albinos, multi-colored.

    Lack of honesty

    I've seen this from time to time, but recently, I've seen it a bit more frequently. People aren't always honest with their information when they ask for advice. Does it matter to you guys? I have to admit that it drives me a little nuts. I feel like if you want to ask for advice, at least...

    Is ich ever-present or not??

    It's something I've seen come up a couple of times this past week or so, so I thought I'd bring it up in its own thread. Is ich always present in tanks or not? says it's a myth. https://www.fishlore.com/Articles/CuringIch.htm says it's true. Does anyone know?

    Why have a dumb policy?

    Lucy just mentioned in another thread that Walmart has a policy to only take back dead fish. What's up with that? They give you a bunch of bad advice and then, when you want to rectify the situation, they won't let you?!

    How do you clean your hands before you put them in your tank?

    We started talking about this, but I didn't want to completely hijack the other thread. How should you clean your hands before putting them in your tank? I assume that washing with soap is a bad idea? I just scrub mine with water, but I don't always remember to do even that much.
