    Not sure if this is the right place to post...

    How would I determine the value of my fish? Female is 4 inches from nose to caudel, Male is 3 inches nose to caudel. Both are very healthy, good appetites, active, great colors, fins in excellent shape.

    Best bet is to check pricing online for similar sized fish. If you are trying to sell them, you will probably get less at a LFS than if you try selling them to another hobbyist.

    Those sound pretty big and should fetch a good price.

    Today I took the couple to the lfs where I bought my 80 gal last feb. He traded the clowns for a 55 gal. I'm happy with that!!! Plus, his displays and sale tanks are beautiful. They ought to be greatful since the tank they were in was a dump compared.

    I also took him a clam and some polyps I found in the tank this morning cause I didn't want to chuck them. The lfs guy laughed and dumped them in the trash. Oh well. Karma for the thought that counts.

    Thanks everyone for your support these last few weeks, especially Yote. I have new found respect for those of you in this hobby.

    Forgive my 'ignunce', but what is 'slapped a knot on his head' slang for? Is that like 'bust a cap in his ass?'

    I'm just trying to prepare for my visit to Atlanta.

    Maybe in the future it'll be for salt. I stress over the littlest stuff when it comes to the hobby, and seeing as I have 10 other tanks, I decided to put salt on hold for now. But mý barbs from the 20 long are now very happy, as is the pleco!!
    I know, I know...boring ol fresh water. But they still make me smile!
