I was very skeptical of what the LFS
was telling me to begin with, and the fact that I witnessed my guppy getting sick just put me over the edge..
I will surely be avoiding the LFS
for any advice from here out... Way I see it is that they are in business to sell fish, so why not tell people something that would have them keep coming in and purchasing more fish??
Last night when I got home from work, the little gup was still hanging in there, but seemed that the ACs were starting to get vicious and pick at him. I performed a quick WC
of the tank, removed the guppy and placed it in an old 1 gal
. fish bowl to keep away from the cichlids, is it alright to have the guppy in the bowl with no filter though??
Anyways as I said, the guppy was still alive, but since I put him in the bowl he is still swimming around on its side, almost upside down and staying at the surface. I don't think he will make it much longer, but I couldn't bring myself to get rid of him while its still alive. Poor lil' guy...
