Oh and on the added salt, its a good idea depending on the types of fish you have in those tanks, in fact every week when i get the livebearers in i have them all in 1 Tbsp. per gallon of salt and slowly bring that level down to about 1 tsp. per gallon before selling them.
And i tell everyone who buys them what conditions they are in and give people a free sample of aquarium salt to start them off.
But thats only for livebearers.

But thats a whole nother complicated matter. haha

Awesome! I will definitely take a look at the flying fox the next time i'm at work. As far as extra tanks, there aren't any that are available on the central filter system. I always the salt was good because it helped reduce disease ect. But, I could be wrong. I too tell the customers what conditions the fish are in currently and what their ideal ranges are. I also make sure they have cycled the tank before buying any fish. I will have to mention draining some of the water out of one tank at a time and scrape all of the BBA off the filter parts. I also noticed that they do not use any kind of net sanitizer. I'm sure that the nets are one way the system has been introduced to the BBA in every tank. >.<

I really appreciate your suggestions and help,


Sincerely, Unikorn
