Is it just my local stores or are the tanks with nerites just disasters. I went on the hunt for a new nerite a week or two ago and every shop's nerite tank looks like a war zone. One had a pile of dead catfish in the corner some half eaten. The other had the most stressed out neon's I'd ever seen. They looked dead but were still swimming. Do shops just dump a bag of nerites and walk away letting the dead ones ammonia bomb the tank? It's too the point I want to order them on line. At least that way I don't have to look at the tank they came from.
What to do, what to do. I got some guppies in a trade, 3 males and two females. One of the females died during transport (stupid USPS had the box for 2 weeks! Should have been 2 days. I'm shocked anything survived.) I've got everyone recovering now, but holy heck, look at the bent spine on the surviving female! Of course the female that died looked great with no deformities. The one that survived probably needs to be put down anyway. (Long story as far as how I got them, basically these were the only females available, not the sender's fault. I'd rather not play the blame game atm.) Just feeling super grouchy that I can't really use these to breed now. Everyone agrees that I have to cull that female, right? Ugh I'm so irritated after all the issues with USPS that I just want to take the rest of them (3 males) to the LFS and move on with my life. If the female is that messed up, I'm not confident about the male bloodlines either. Thoughts? (Seeking some pity here lol) What would you guys do with the males? I'd rather start from scratch and invest in a quality bloodline (I'm a cheap goober and that's why I got into this in the first place lol) I have NEVER seen a spine that messed up!
