  3. My Tvr

    They are some of Paul's that I got from another friend when he was culling down. I think they'll be good seed fish though.

  10. On The Subject Of Filters

    I have Emperors and canisters, but my favorite is the system on my TVR tubs. It's a DIY, sump basically. The water overflows into a container with bioballs and floss, falls again into a reservoir where it is pumped back into the tubs. It's efficient, effective and easy to deal with. It really is the best system I have and I've never yet had a problem with it. I wish my tanks weren't all tempered on the bottom, else I would set up sumps in them.
  11. Thanks so much zenfish!

  12. ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! That pic you posted in the GOTW poll is amazing. I love artsy shots and that one's a keeper.

  13. Ah, okay. I just really can't see it on my monitor... laptops, ugh...
  14. Always, Always, Always QT your new fish. Having said that, did you say that the fish has pearlscales? Cause I'm not seeing pineconing... Maybe it's just my screen. What are you guys seeing that says dropsy to you? Dropsy is not contagious, it is a symptom of severe problems with parasites, liver, heart, or kidneys. Has the pineconing progressed? I would try to get an idea of what I was treating for before I treated as well. Parasite treatments are dangerous and there is no cure-all. If you can, borrow a microscope and do a scrape. Treat for the most lethal problem first and go from there. What is going on with the other fish? Be careful not to get worked up and start seeing problems where they don't exist. That's what I do, one fish acts funny and all the sudden I'm seeing problems everywhere. Good Luck, I'm hoping it's just pearlscaling we're seeing and nothing serious. Please keep us updated!
  15. Pork Chop Has Body Guards! Loooool!

    Gorgeous new fish! I think Porkchop better come live with me though. Hard to compete with those giant ryukin.
