My bf on a whim spontaneously decided to buy 2 fish to show his support for me. He has always rolled his eyes at my hobby. Maybe I should mention he is bi-polar? LOL Its 3am-ish, he comes home with these two fish and says ok, what do I do? He says he's realized he'd been a jerk as of late and wanted to show he supported me. My mind is reeling, I have 1 new fish in quarantine in a 15g bin, what am I going to use for 2 more, and oh no, I gotta buy a new filter! I then remembered my 30g tank thats just hanging out in my dining room, (I was waiting to refinish the stand) resign myself to setting it up and buying a new filter in the morning. For tonight they will have to share the 15g. I forgot that the tank is salted, I had him acclimate the fish with tank water, but thats a far stretch. Some people do salt baths but that is for 10 minutes. Although Pet*co heavily salts their tanks and just plops the fish in, although they aren't a good example with their death toll. Should I take them out? Its after 4 am... grr Prob too late now... Then he comes home with a bronze black moor and a black dotted white koi! A koi! Not that I have anything against them but they require sooo much space, although its only maybe 3-4". It will have to deal with what I got I guess until the pond is up, although the pond is already getting 13 comets that I hatched last june, making my 300g ideal over stocked... Then there is the bronze black moor, maybe I shouldn't be so elitist but I was waiting to get a "true" black moor. As I hear unless its entirely jet black it will turn to bronze. On top of it all they are wal*mart fish! I can't really get after him for that though since I just bought a wally world fish but it took me a week to decide to get this one fish that had been calling my name each time I went in the store. Yes, I am a freak that always checks the fish aisle before shopping. I would of hoped he would atleast get my input first so as to get the best quality and least disease ridden. Thankfully they looked rather healthy in the bag, but he had a precursory education on the subject by just being around me. I don't hate them, its just almost 5am now, and I'm grumpy and had to rant to peoples that understand where I'm coming from. I'm sure in a day or so I will have grown to love em.
