    Maybe he blames you because you put some of your fish that are clearly regularly exposed to illness into his tank and they potentially brought it into his tank. Also how many bettas are you going to put in a 10 gal??

    You seriously think you can put a heater into a 1000 gallon pond and heat the water? Just exactly what kind of heater did he have in mind? That's not happening. You can put a surface heater on the pond to make an airhole for gases to escape, which is what I have on my pond, but if you live in an area where the temps get cold, you are not going to heat the pond enough to support a pleco. Honestly, your posts are so out there that I get the feeling you are trying to get us riled.

    I get the feeling your last point here is correct. It's as if questions are poised to annoy ppl and get a response..... Hope i am wrong......

    She also had a thread going in the Betta forum about how she keeps her Bettas in vases....with much the same results as her current threads. It does almost feel as we are being baited but I sadly think we are not.

    This is crazy. You and your dad need to get out of the hobby and quit killing fish.

    Nitrites are "low"? NitrIte should be at 0 ppm in a cycled tank, no exceptions.

    Why can't you share test kits? They are universal across all FW tanks. That is no excuse for why either of you cannot get current results.

    How does someone take fish out of your tank without you noticing? Wouldn't he have logically told you he as doing so? If someone was messing with my stock/fish tank, I would know immediatly.

    They were in the breeder net when he took them, plus was at work when he took them from the breeder net. I noticed I was missing a few of my black swordtail fry, thought they died.

    I don't think that would cause his fish just to die without a known reason. They didn't have ich or any illness when they died.

    Right now, I'm trying to figure out why my angelfish keeps laying eggs for no reason.

    The other is a male, he is still young right now and he isn't fully mature, like my 3-4 year old female angel. She started eating the eggs.. how long do the eggs take to hatch? Cause the eggs been in the tank for 2 days now.
