Guppies are outrageous! I don’t care how many times I say stop it! They don’t.david1978 said:Fortunately i have been able to keep all that have been born in the tank. Lol. A whopping 1 so far. Kind of glad they dont breed like guppies. Its a little harder in a community tank.
That sucks when they jump out. I sucked my favorite girl into the filter when i was cleaning the end, thats why the red one neede to come with me.JLeeM said:Oh I bet. Almost makes me want to do all bettas instead of fancy goldfish in a 75 someday. Lol.
Have you got any pictures of some of yours?
Crafty Cichlid said:Tuesday, I discovered that my female koi met a grizzly end. She jumped out, and instead of landing on the floor in a puddle, she landed on the glass... Under the light. She looked so peaceful and crispy, like a taxidermist had set her like this.
So to keep my sorority how I want it, and my numbers right, I went to Petco looking for a female koi to pay to rescue from them. (My store actually has some pretty good fish people.) Almost walked out with two, but the price tag got to me, and I wasn't sure the one I left behind was healthy. Swam fine, but didn't like the red around her gill, looked like blood was pooling in the ribcage. So I got a baby girl instead. Nice green sheen to her, red and blue mix, hint of pink. So my numbers are back in order. Now I've got to figure out if my Rosy barbs are going to move to the baby cichlid tank to make room for two more ladies, or if I should just stop. (The rosies were purchased for the baby cichlid tank, because if their size and the general hardiness of barbs. The cat popped the bag before I was ready to float them in the baby tank, so I tossed them in the betta tank. Only thing they nip at, is the duckweed, and that's perfect. Wow that stuff grows.
Side note, and thoughts on why Val I planted early in the week is already melted?
Siphoning one of my fish might have saved her! I checked her out after her ride, and she has dropsy. I moved her to a HOB breeder box (which is really just an old school bubble operated filter) and am treating the entire tank. I hope she recovers, she's a great blue and red, with that same green sheen that so many have. She's like the bettas I remember as a kid.david1978 said:Theres a bunch on my profile under my media page. My picture taking skills are poor so they aren't the best. Lol
