ALWAYS QT and NEVER Mix from Different Sources

i made a small mistake..

i picked up some albino bristlenose plecos last Saturday..

then added some albino corys/oto from petsmart..

and some nerite snails from TPT

but did not really have tank to add them.. so i put them into my Female Betta tank.. its established and have had no losses in a couple of months..

well, i lost one cory..

but have now lost 7 females in the last 5 days..

thank goodness its not my discus.. LOL>

on the bright side.. i picked up some blue tigers and/or tigers for free as like a rescue from a REEFER.
well, i kept them in the 2.5 gallon tank i brought them in.. whew!!

moral of the story.. ALWAYS QT before mixing your established fish with NEW fish..
