I'd definitely say there is something shady going on with the sychro'ed goldfish. Pay attention to their tail fins. They never kick their tail fins to move forward. It's like they are being dragged...

I'm using 2x24w T5 with Teklight reflectors on it. It works well. I'd say 100w is too excessive.

I will never buy otos online or on a fresh order from a LFS. The survival rate is simply too low. I always buy 3-4 at a time locally at a petsmart or petco. They have a very lenient return policy. If...
