I feel like to non-avid/well informed fish keepers QT=medsmedsmedsmeds. Perhaps Tommy was just trying to say that many people overdue it and kill the fish in the process? I know some people use like malachite green when they QT which could easily kill a goldfish if done wrong (besides the fact that its not needed to begin with)

This is possible, but then wouldn't it make more sense, and also is more responsible, to educate people on how to QT properly rather than telling them to not QT at all? How does that phrase go? Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater...

Exactly. I do think that he was referring to people tossing the fish in uncycled tanks for weeks, and that can surely kill a fish. But as you said, he should explain to the customer that there is a difference between "keeping a new fish separate" and "QTing a new fish properly".

And these fish on their sides were disturbing.

wow all the pics were amazing :) thanks for sharing it was almost like being there with you i could even feel your excitement :) and your chocolate ryu is amazing I can't wait to see it in your tank :)

As for the rest of the comments I think maybe PP is heading in the right direction about some people may over do the qt process and i totally agree one should never just put a new fish in with your main tank :( although I do know of people who do just that and they have been ever so lucky not to lose an entire tank of fish ;)

What confounding advise Tommy was giving!! Proof is in the unfortunate pudding huh?

Is there a photo of Green Tea and Koko commemorating her receiving the "I had the honor of meeting Koko" medal? :P

I would have loved to attend such a show! Currently Googling shows in my area...looking pretty slim though!

I went today too!!! It was lots of fun as usual, even my bf enjoyed it and took pix of the koi. My pix refused to download for some reason but if I can get them to work tommorrow then you guys can see even more fishies from the show. Or probably just more of the same ones! :P
