That sounds cool, are you still going to put some of your fry in?
I plan on it, just waiting until they get bigger so I can tell what's what... my tank is overrun by fry of three or four different colors, can't tell guppies from mollies yet (except for 2 older fry that are getting the big molly body on them already), but I want to see what colors I get when they grow out before I bring them to work.
Also kind of debating about other fish instead of the guppies/mollies... I like my guppies and mollies, but I am considering something else just to have something different at work than at home... since I don't want to put something in at home that will eat my fry... I was thinking about maybe adding a betta, but with so many fry at home I think the betta would eat them... so maybe I'll put a betta in the work tank and not worry if it eats any fry that are born (after my initial fry grow big enough to not be eaten)
Just an update on the tank this morning, I came in this morning and all 6 neons are good and active so must have gone OK acclimating temp/dumping them in, then my co-worker who did it tells me she went and bought her son a 2.5 gallon tank over the weekend and bought him 3 neons and a snail for it too... woo hoo! I got someone else hooked on fish =)
unfortunately, she claims she has had fish in the past so she isn't listening to my advice... before I brought my tank to work she was asking what was taking so long and I told her I was cycling the tank at home before bringing it to work... she told me she always just dumped her fish in the tank without cycling it and never had problems... so this morning I asked what kind of filter came with the tank she had and offered to let her take my dirty filter home to help cycle her sons tank and she tells me she doesn't need it... tried to explain the nitrogen cycle and she looked at me cross eyed... tried explaining to her that just dumping fish in isn't going to immediately create ammonia, that there has to be something in the tank to decompose to create ammonia, so while they might be OK now, once you've fed them for a few days and they've pooped for a few days there will be ammonia and it will kill the fish... she tells me "they'll be OK, I put the conditioner stuff in and their fine"... tried to explain that the conditioner is just to remove chlorine, not to cycle a tank... she tells me its OK that she has had fish tanks for a long time when she was younger... poor kid is going to be heart broken when his fish die because she won't listen to me, but guess I can say "told ya so!" when it happens...
