"Water overtemping has not been a problem.
Rain can be a problem. We had a storm Monday that dropped 7.69" in two hours. The system of course over flowed. That happened frequently last summer but we still had excellent growth…"
Now that is a perfect example of bullying.
When I first tried to start breeding, I had a fish get so beat up it was sickening to observe. He/she was obviously bruised around the tail with rips in the skin showing. So I set…"
