Popular Post PineSong Posted August 9, 2022 Popular Post Share Posted August 9, 2022 Which highlights the value of keeping a written record: My record keeping has slacked off since last year. I used to keep a written record of every fish purchased, QT meds, water parameters, breeding dates, you name it. Eventually I grew more confident ((cue the suspenseful music)) and switched to casual post it notes stuck to the tank that said stuff like "Expel P again on Saturday" and that was that. Several days ago I noticed I seemed to be missing a lot of fish. My tanks are packed with plants and it's possible I might miss a dead guppy and it could be consumed by the tank, but I could not believe I was missing what must be dozens of bodies. I pondered what might be killing my fish and I felt guilty for not noticing. I was especially confused because mature adults and baby fish seemed fine, it was the juveniles and teens that were missing. I removed rocks I had gathered at the lake and now did not trust, removed 2/3 of my corkscrew val so I could have better visibility, gave everyone Expel-P, gravel vacuumed and stirred up gravel with chopsticks, and just felt bad. Today I remembered I had taken around 75 fish to the LFS in the past six weeks. Oof. 3 23 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
