My final count is 4 survivors out of 18. At least I did not pay a high price for them, 6 for $5. I put a lot of blame on the way LFS housed them. They had a huge tank with hundreds of cardinals and rummy nose together. Image how customers have to catch them in net and separate them and pick and choose... extremely stressful for the fish. The survivors have been doing great. I have 8 rummy nose left out of 18.

Truvu 100g Flourite, wet/dry, AHSupply 302w PC, PinPoint controller
10gallon15w T6+15w T8
55gallon40w T6 ODNO4x, no CO2. Discus grow out.
10gallon Tonina tank, 2x15w T6 ODNO 4x
I will do aquascapes after I collect all the plant species and grow them to perfection.
