    First of all, I read your entire thread, and your story proves that truth is stranger than fiction. You can't make that stuff up.

    Your points are well taken. I didn't really think about the...
  2. Thank you for the nice compliment on my Rainbows....

    Thank you for the nice compliment on my Rainbows. I find them to be a hardy species, and my oldest fully mature ones are about 8 years old. They do take patience, as they are slow growers and don't...

    Sue,

    That’s a very reasoned response, and I agree with you. And I am glad to see that I am not the only one who doesn't quarantine or test my water. I don’t think many want to admit it.

    In...
  4. You might be right here. I might just be lucky....

    You might be right here. I might just be lucky. 40 years or so of fish keeping, and I've never had a disaster. I do have a great LFS, and only buy on line from noted Rainbow breeders.

    I did...
  5. Guys, guys....the whole post was tongue in cheek....

    Guys, guys....the whole post was tongue in cheek. I'm no troll, not serious, and am just joking around. Although all the points above about my tank are in fact true.

    The points are things I have...

    I've had tanks in several homes, in different states and counties. City and well water. I have never used any conditioner. I guess I always figured if my tap water could kill my fish, I probably...

    I have to get this off my chest. I’m feeling guilty and need to confess, I am not a good fish keeper.

    This post was inspired by my private messages with another member on this board (don’t worry,...

    Just so you know, there are two species of red rainbows that are commonly available. My preference is the Millenium rainbow (Glossolepis Pseudoincisus). You will also find the Irian rainbow fish...

    As you can see from my tank, I am pretty biased to having lots of rainbows, so of course I would say 4 red rainbows. In a 6' tank, you have plenty of room.

    Just so you know, I keep only male...
  10. My rainbows never stay still, and cruise the tank...

    My rainbows never stay still, and cruise the tank side to side constantly. There is always motion in the tank. In fact, trying to get a still camera shot of a rainbow is a very tough task, because...

    That's interesting that you say that. I've always considered mine a fish tank with plants, not a planted tank with fish. My plants do well, but grow very slowly.

    I'm always jealous when I see...

    It depends on the species. Most take between one and two years to get to a mature size. But they usually start showing some pretty good color within 6 months or so.

    It is really hard to find...

    Thanks for the nice compliment. I saw your other journal thread, and your tank is very nice as well.

    I've been considering adding C02, but haven't made the jump yet.

    Here you go. I find rainbows to be very hardy. My oldest are about 7 years old.

    I've been keeping rainbows or years. I sometimes add new very small rainbows to grow out, maybe 1.5 to 2" in length. I've never had one of the adult rainbows try to eat one.

    As you know, rainbows...

    I’ve been keeping Rainbow fish for years. They are a hardy fish, and very, very rarely have I ever lost one.

    That is, except for the Praecox. For whatever reason, Praecox are the least hardy of...

    The ones that are silver/yellow as juveniles will be silver/yellow as adults. They won't change into blue/orange. Still nice, but I prefer the blue/orange. I know this from experience and years and...

    I've got a little different view than those above.

    I have a 70 tall (4ft tank) with 14 Rainbows, plus 3 Roseline sharks, and a few others.

    Tank is heavily filtered, with good water movement and...

    I know this may not be popular....but I gotta be honest. I bring them home, net them out of the bag, and toss them in. I'm more concerned about not adding the LFS water to my tank than how the fish...

    I've had two of them for over two years. They work great and look great too.

    The Denisonii are the most active. They are in constant motion, and do go everywhere. Makes it very difficult to get a picture!

    Of course, the rainbows are very active too. They do tend to stay in...
