Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

6 more guppy fry tonight. Rounded up 5 pretty easy, the last is elusive and I decided not to chase him. I tried to get a picture, but they are impossible to capture with my poor quality camera phone.

I am surprised there were no sliders in either group. Strange for LFS guppies in my experience. Hooray for that though.

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

Congrats on the new babies. I've got a platy fry in my tank who is very quick and elusive. I have yet to either catch him, or a picture. He's managed to survive this long...

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

gah! the immature female wasn't so immature after all. 6 new fry this morning. Going to catch the females and place them in the observation tank until they stop popping. I am getting overrun with store bought guppies quick.
I should start a blog: watch my 6 guppies turn into 458...

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

Well just about an hour ago I picked up a "mystery fish" you could say. He looks like something in between a guppy and a minnow but I don't think thats possible. Last week the people at the LFS said he was a baby gold fishautolinker.com autolinking image and today there saying a minnow...hhhhhmmmm. Hes by himself for now until I figure out what the heck he is! I will soon have pics on my blog and maybe on here but hes see through and less than an inch long..oh won't this be fun LOL!!!

Fish are living creatures...treat them that way

2g with 1 female betta

8 gallon with 3 young, adorable bettas and a bumblebee platy or 2 soon to come!

check out my new blog! http://epicaquariumphotography.blogspot.com/

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

I just moved 30 Cardinal Tetras from the quaranteen tank to my 155 bowfront. I hadn't realized how fat some of them were getting. I've heard they are not the easiest fish to keep. So far so good :Crossing Fingers:

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

I got neons that are 2 years old, they are hard to keep because most people dont take the time to care for the tank right let alone the fish themselves. Mine have been with the same angels for that long, no consumable losses.

Today I took a pygmy cory from the guppy tank to QT he is acting like a minnow, always at the top. In qt he goes to the bottom and scoots around and act corydora fine.

Does constructing or starting construction of a tank stand count as a new fish today? IDK about the rest of you but a 200+ gallon build is better then adding a few fish to an existing tank.
