View Full Version : Fish everywhere

I think I need to change my name to crazyfishlady. I got a 55 gallon tank the other day at a church rummage sale for $8! I'm so happy. No leaks. And it came with everything needed for a full setup, including some really ugly fake decorations. Since I'm moving tomorrow back to school there's fish in buckets all over my bedroom floor. The four 7" comets are in one bucket. Three baby comets and two fantails in another. An oranda and a ranchu together. Five female bettas in another bucket. A male betta in his original cup for moving, I'm sure he isn't happy to see that thing again. And four black loaches triple bagged and ready to go. It's like moving a zoo!

Yeah, I've got my notebook. It's what I'm using for internet right now since our other computer is slow.

Hehe^^ Sounds like my room when alot of fish were in quarantine at one time.
Why can't I be the one to find good deals? :o I would probably die if I found a 55g for only $8.
Anyway, I hope the move goes well. :D

Well, everybody made the move fine, except my filters. Most of the bacteria died off. By this morning the ammonia was up to 1.0ppm. I might have to make like the Japanese and do 100% changes daily until the bacteria returns. I was excited to find that my ranchu and oranda are both boys though and both have their tubercles on the gills.
