    June update. No more issues have popped up in a couple weeks now but not sure if it was from the meds or the infection but two of the group have damaged swim bladders. Trying salt and lots of clean water but I’m not sure they are going to recover. They are eating now again but can only lay on the bottom of the tank. Everyone else seems to be doing alright.

    July update- had a week long vacation during this month, the way things were going I was nervous something would happen but everyone was alright. Three still have swim bladder problems tried everything I just don’t think they can recover. I think the major problem was the sponge filters they are pretty hard to clean, I clean them all the time but there is just so many pores for stuff to stay stuck in. I think I should have just stuck with the hob filters. Oh well I’ll keep pressing on.

    August update- guess I forgot to do my August update. But nothing has changed really no improvement in any of them and very little growth. Just daily water changes. Instead of depressing pictures of fish laying on the bottom of the tank here’s a picture of last years fish.

    September update- yes I heat and age my water for at least 24 hours before putting it in the tank. Not sure but the one fish I had that was a decent size and had good color did the same thing this month. Was perfectly fine then one morning couldnt swim anymore just layers on the bottom. So I have one left swimming. Unfortunately he was the runt and didn’t really have any color. It’s been a frustrating year but was still fun. Want to thank Rick for continuing to put these contests on.
