    Goldfish are gone, on to bettas. We've downsized(economy?) to 2.

    Our boys are now 3.5 and 17 months. So, i figure it's time for their first pet. I'll be doing the work, but for now, it'll be us having them before they know what to do. Maybe later, when they know how to feed it and take it for a walk, we'll get a dog. We started with 5, but mourned the loss of one this morning. We had a proper burial at sea(toilet). Their all goldfish and look the same, so there's no point in naming them. Anyone else have fish, or other tank dwellers?

    Ad a turtle and call them Dinner 1, Dinner 2, Dinner 3, and Dinner 4

    ;D
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    Re: The 4 newest members of the family..Still deciding on names

    Everything is gone. the last betta died. I put it on my wifes facebook, everything for $20 and sold it to a friend of hers an hour later. We are moving, so it was going to be tough for them/it to make the move anyway. I'm not really sure what happened. The water was chlorinated, the fish had food, the water was filtered and they still died. I'm just glad they were cheap, and we got something out of everything we had.

    I do know one of the bettas(both female) upon further exam, was nipped on by the other. It's entirely possible that's what killed that was, but the nipped one was the only one left in the tank, so who knows. Eventually, like i've said before, we'll get a dog.

    I didn't think you wanted Chlorine in your fish tank...maybe I'm wrong though.

    Enough to kill bacteria, but little enough that the fish are unaffected... I assume, I've never owned more than a goldfish.

    You should only keep on Beta in a tank.
    Those things will kill each other.

    You need bacteria for the fish to survive. There are bad types that can harm the fish, but essential ones that convert the waste to prevent the fish from poisoning. Chlorine has no place in there at all.FYI.

    If your water has chlorine in it, it is best to let it stand for a day so that it can evaporate out of the water before you add it to the tank. You can also buy dechlorinators but the first way is free.

    Re: The 4 newest members of the family..Still deciding on names

    There were 2 bettas in there, and they were chasing each other that's for sure.

    There was no chlorine, i added a teaspoon of DECHLORINATOR that came with the tank, just like the package said to do. I miswrote when i said the water was chlorinated, i meant dechlorinated.

    Naturally, with the attention span of my 2 children, they liked them, but don't miss them now. I feel bad, as they were bought to teach responsibility, and we limited that.
