Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I was going to keep them as long as I wanted them then find a buyer to move them.

I'm worried about the bio-load to, that's why I wanted to get the 90g. Still not ideal but better than the 75g. You know I'm stuck with a 4footer, unless I go custom. Or get the 300g tub.

Both sp. are going to be smaller for a while. At least for another 8 months. I can't ever keep the same fishes for 6 months so we'll see where they go after I get another impulse buy. :lol:

I wouldn't want any thing phong as right now....he is fighting bloat.

Oh, also when combining different species of fish together you have to decide.... which is the greater of the two that you want and go from there.


My Moshi tasted what an algae scraper is like earlier today.... He might be getting thumped and flushed soon.

It's called catching an @ss whooping.

Are they any better?

You positive they don't have bloat?

I saw a few with white stringy poo and very lifeless. But their bellies weren't big or anything. Either way, I told him safer than sorry. He told me that the dude that had them before was feeding them random flakes.

Yeah I'm about to head out now to pick them up soon the small ones will go into the floater and the large ones out to defend for themselves till next week when I set up the tank for them. I was just offering them to you cause the bigger fry were being held for me and you know I get better prices.

The Moshi is gonna die with me or by me but I do have someone offering to buy it.

There was only like 2-3 of them that I would have singled out as having a problem and it wasn't stringy poop.... more like empty poop. They weren't meant to make it....that's all. The fry were stripped so everyone had a chance at life... and this is just weeding out what should have been dealt with long time ago.

They don't have bloat... maybe wasting away but not bloat.

Yeah I know you just offering them to me......I'm not tripping. I like them but you know I have tank space issues. If I had a 6footer I would get both the paracyps and the cyps. I'll see what he has tomorrow. Hopefully something other then the blue flash but I'll pick up whatever.

If all you saw was 2-3 that had problems than they are getting better. I saw at least 7-8 that where literally laying on the floor. They were just bobbing back and forth. I soak some NLS pellets in metro and a good amount of them ate expect for the 7-8 I saw.

I did tell him to catch that catfish out......helpful he did or will. I can only guess what that catfish does at night.
