Since we are 5 pages deep,
Most agreeing it is hard to know who to listen to.
Many being uncomfortable to post if they are not 100% correct,
and a disclaimer for any thing that may qualify someone to give advice( I said MOST old guys!!)
I'll add that breeders are the guys you want to talk to.
Many general hobbiest are slack on disease identification , treatments and proper conditions for a fish to be kept in.(am I overstocked in my 10G????)
Not a successful breeder!
A good breeder understands and performs the necessary actions,treatments and provides the proper conditions.
So maybe 10k post is worth something but IMO
not as much as the word and pictures of breeders.
We did already say to vet or qualify your info source right?
Ask for pictures,ask for links.....
We are all supposed to be sharing and learning.
I hope to learn everyday,thanks to many who post regulary here.
I haven't been here long but I know who to ask about disease,breeding and regular "tomfoolery" already!
I would like to post questions that I think I know the answer to,but I already do this to employees at fish stores for years.(This is how you vet someone!!).
