    This guy did not care about you or those fish. He simply was taking your money happily with total disregard for life. Your first post floored me as we have some very silly people who write posts just to stir things up here and I thought that's what you were. I guess the real Troll was the dude at the fish store!



    I would not ask that guy one single question because he obviously will just lie to you but you have got to know that fish grow! Fish in stores that might be 2" will soon be 8" or even more.

    If you know of anyone with a fish tank, I would give your fish to them because they simply can not live for long in that tank. Learn how to keep a tank properly and the size you will need and how to cycle the tank before adding fish. And then come back when you are ready to stock with fish and we will help you make intelligent decisions.

    Sorry you had to learn the hard way.

    PS.....You may not even need a water condition in Uganda. I doubt the water there is treated with chlorine like it is here.

    Thank you, it's time to study, see how big an aquarium I can get and then I'll get back at you guys.
    I'm glad I came across this community on google I would probably be swallowing more ignorance from the fish guy

    Nah - After a bit of googling and time here you will be so far ahead of that guy that you will just shake your head at the misinformation he has to offer.

    Enjoy the research! It is part of the fun in this hobby IMO. The more you know, The better off you and your fish are.

    Keeping fish is a journey, Not a destination. Enjoy the ride.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Thank you guys sooooo much all the help and support I've received is very encouraging.
    I'm half way through the free ebook and I'm totally amazed at my ignorance, there is so much that goes into keeping just one fish!!
    I'm in the process of planning my next move based on the fish I have at hand, the cash & equipment available to me and how fast I can progress.
    Do I need to start a new thread for my next move or can I continue posting questions as they arise in this thread?

    THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN

    I would probably start a new thread, We have rode the intro thread for all it's worth ;-P. In it you can link back to this one for readers to conveniently reference if you like.

    I [Atypically] didn't notice where we were during our earlier marathon session .
