Stache looks extra-frisky!? Adorable.? Where'd you get him?? (In case it was at an LFS, because the Bay Area isn't an unreasonable drive for me.)

I did get him @ a local fish store! It's in Fremont called family pets and they guarantee their fishes to be disease free

Hmmm that's not exactly something they can guarantee I believe.. A fish can be sick and not show signs for awhile. Also, when you take the fish home it is under a lot of stress. So when you put it in the main tank it can be susceptible to diseases your fish may carry but they are immune to. It's best to do a complete QT (about a month long) and I would go so far as to treat with Prazi as almost all fish carry fluke worms for the entire duration of their lives. Prazi cuts down on the infestation so the fish don't get infection or diseases from them.

Hello!

Well the fishstore garuntees it, or they will refund your money + 100 dollars on top of that. I had her do a QT tank because she doesn't allow you to buy a fish off hand, you would have to pick it up after a couple-few weeks later. She doesn't sell any fishes to everyone only if you have proof your tank is cycled. Thank you for your concern though! My fishes is thriving. When I put him in he wasn't stressed, he was shy because he was swimming around but only behind the plants and decor. Again, thanks for your concern :-)

But yes you guys are right, I should have QT it to be extra safe that was an error on my part

:) their guarantee is very kind. I would have been scared to put him in right away but that's just me. Hopefully nothing bad happens! I'm glad they're doing well!
