    fish euthanasia

    At risk of being hated on, I use a plastic bag and a rock. I usually cull a lot if fish at once. Individual fish I just pinch the head off.

    Hi, I'm new.

    Welcome to the forum mate. Lots of good advice to be had here. :-) Now for my 2c worth. Betta and goldfish require a lot different water conditions. This may work in short term but neither fish will thrive, survive maybe but not thrive. Second is that the male Betta should be separate from each other and from the girls. Again it may work short term but you may wake up one morning to dead fish. Boys may kill each other, may kill girls or even girls may kill boys. These are called fighting fish for a reason. Anyway, welcome. Hope you enjoy the forum. :-)

    Yep, it does mate. All depends on how much time you spend looking at your fish to how long it takes. Just remember though, some wont breed no matter what you do. Patience is the number one tip with these fish.

    Regrowth will happen, pretty quick usually. I never leave a new pair too long together unless i can keep an eye on them. Once a female attacks my boys I remove immediately. I allow the girl to be beat up a bit though, I use the fishes body language to judge when to remove. Once she is gasping on the surface and trying to run away at all costs, abandon attempt and try again. Good luck mate.

    Brichardi setup.

    Thanks. I have enjoyed spawning these fish and with the three adult fish helping raise the fry, it is different to anything else I have done. I did actually pick the different stages the fish went through, just didn't realise what the changes ment. The fry are growing well. I will be selling these when they are ready (a while yet :-). ). I already have a few shops lined up to take 10 at a time. There are LOTS in the tank. I am really enjoying this and love how easy it all is, so much easier and less stress than the Betta. It is a nice change.

    These guys are growing well. I have little fish now. :-)
  11. Congratulations Pete and Jay on your new roles. Also to both someone and Jarrod for their continued support. I am sure the club shall continue to grow and you shall all do well in your roles.
  12. I will still be bringing round the steel pair if you want them.
  13. I had the same again in my Channoides tank. I did wc then used broad spectrum meds. If this doesn't work I will treat for velvet. Fingers crossed for you mate. :-)
