I'm pretty sure about getting a 2217 for my 29 gal. Does it come with a spray bar, or should I buy one (would this be suggested for a tank of this size?)

I've read this thread...

Oh... I see. So it would be better if the fish's water's temperature were slowly brought down? How long would ice cold water take to kill the fish?

Is this an acceptable way of euthanasia?

I euthanized a fish with what I thought was a humane and painless method, but after some further research, I'm worried that it may have caused the fish pain.

I had heard of the "put fish in ice...

About the livebearers, I'm not sure that they would give a constant supply of fry. If there's no external source feeding them, they might not produce so many fry.

Feeder guppies keep dying! (disease) I'm pulling my hair out!

At this point, I think I am going to go crazy/hopeless/chronically depressed.

My guppy fry were all yellowish when they were born, but now that they're older (about 2 months) they're turning more of a silvery color like most guppies. I think they just don't have the silver in...

I think if you left them to their own devices, most of the fry will get eaten or not survive (sadly), and you won't have trouble with the population. One of the positives of that is that strongest...

Possiblity of fish getting stuck to filter?
