    That last Khuli pic is a classic. He's like "Hey....get that camera outta my hidey hole!"

    Haha! I love my Kuhlis. I was doing my best to get a good picture of one of their faces, but to no avail. I had to snap the face pic so fast that I couldn't focus it properly.

    SO, yesterdayn I added a few newbies to the gang. My Serpae school is now at a solid 14, and I have to say -- the fullness looks great! The new ones are so much smaller than the others it's comical.

    So far, so good. I'll keep you up to date on if anything starts to happen with these guys.

    One lovely aspect of kuhli behaviour is that they will shelter together during daytime. You can get 8, even 10 in amazingly narrow spaces.

    Great photos, Mandy! Love your Angels. So nice to see them in a group like that. =] Nice job on the Kuhli pic - perfect timing.

    Thank ya! :) I've really been working on my photos. I'm still not good, but I'm trying to get clear pictures at least. It doesn't help having a crap camera. Lol.

    So, for those of you who haven't seen my other thread -- I'm pretty sure a few of my angels have fin rot. I was suspicious of this when I first brought them home, but I'm pretty positive now.

    I'm going to follow the advice I was given -- doing a few extra W/C's and probably adding a little salt (which I need a refill on).

    Errr --- can I use table salt? I've heard of all kinds of people using different salts with no problem. One person here said they'd used pickling salts!

    There are a few ways to treat fin rot. Keeping meticulous water conditions/parameters is one of them. I know you already take care of this with weekly water changes, etc., but you could try an additional one, so once every 3 days or something.

    That didn't work for my Betta, though. I actually had to medicate. I used Fungus Guard, which healed it right up. Haven't had the problem since. I only used 1/2-3/4 the dose, though, and I dissolved the portion of the tablet in a cup of tank water, before I added it. This is BB, snail and Oto safe. You'll have to look into Loaches, though.

    If you wanted to try the all-natural method, Melafix could do the trick. Though, as has been suggested to me, you might want to halve the dose on that, as well.

    I'd be very careful with the Angels... sometimes these meds can knock them off. If you want some expert opinion, though, I'd PM IndianWoodsAngel.

    Thanks for all that Kevin. I'll try the extra W/C for a bit to see if that helps. The I'll move on to meds. Yes, I remember fishmommie's copper disaster. :( Wouldn't want to do that!

    Thanks a bunch!

    That must be highly annoying. You do your very best to do things right (and I think you are doing things right) and now this.

    I do wonder about finrot. On European forums you read far fewer accounts of this than on American forums. Either we fail to spot it or it's much more prevalent in stock traded in America. If the latter then why?

    Anyway, best of luck, hope you get on top of it soon.

    Dutchie, I have a feeling it has something to do with our water... and what we tend to add to it. Chlorine, chloramine, flouride... If it was meant to be in the water, we would have found it in the water. Filtration should be used for city/well water... just not supplements/additives.
