When I see them there they are almost always all dead or dying and beaten up. I got mine from my LFS in wonderful condition, I bought four and only lost one in the first weeks, the other three are happy and healthy and a year and a half old. They got a nice 50% water change today and a cube of frozen bloodworms. I need a new light for their tank, though. That's what I've done so far, the other tanks will probably get a water change today too. I ended up with a surprise day off from work since they were too slow to even need me to come in.
They actually had their own little cubical tank. Tiny pleco and half dead plant was all that was with them. Most of them looked pretty healthy other then their fins were sketchy. Kind of raggedy. Not sure if it was fin rot or they were nipping each others fins. I'm jealous you have some of these cute guys.
I'm about to do a pwc on my betta tank and put a black divider up instead of the white one.

Well, I decided to make a brine shrimp hatchery after I found an old air pump. Put it together and then realized the pump wasn't putting out air. Took it apart, fixed it, and got it all working, then in an attempt to put a hole in the cap of the 2 liter bottle I was using I cut a deep gash in my pinkie finger. Once I stopped the heavy bleeding, went right back at it with a different tool and got it together! However I think my 20 gallon is going to wait a day or two for a water change. Don't feel like getting my cut possibly infected with something...

Did a 30% water change on my 29 and 10 gallons and a 50% change on the 5 gallon. Also cleaned out some plants. Anacharis makes such a mess!

Bought some black sand for my tank at last! Couldn't afford to buy loads because I couldn't find anything black outside my LFS so I bought one bag. It won't be enough. But, I thought I might put a layer of gravel on the bottom below the visible part and then put sand on top... I wonder if that will work. I confess that looking at my tank, I am not sure it will do the job.
