Hello out there, I feel silly posting this. Some of you will read this and think it's ridiculous, some of you will probably be completely understanding...I started fish keeping with 2 Mollies and a pleco in a 10gallon in Nov. She immediately had babies and I have raised 5 to adulthood. A newer 40gallon tank currently houses a good sized pleco, 4 yoyo loaches, 2 SAE's, 4 black neon tetras and 6 Mollies (3 of which I think are some kind of hybrid because they're huge). Anyways, it's a busy tank and I have been treating some outbreaks of pop eye which makes me think there are too many fish, too much bacteria, etcetc, so I am going to take 4 of the Mollies to my lfs this wknd and lighten the tank load *sigh*. Maybe it's because this has been my first time raising baby fish, but I do adore em' and am feeling a little sad about this! Originally the plan was to raise them for an experience, and then just give them to the lfs but I've been putting it off. They're beautiful Mollies...I guess this just means that we can bond with all kinds of animals, even fish! Anyone else out there been through this fish giveaway funk?
