Default Bringing a dead tank back to life [LONG]

"Ieyasu" wrote in message

The fish do seem to have taken in interest in examining the glass very
closely, but I think the planaria may be too small for them to pick off.
I have kept feeding to an absolute minimum during this time, only feeding
twice in the 2+ weeks I've had them. I'm hoping that this will encourage
them to seek alternate food sources in the tank, or at least deprive the
planaria of whatever they're feeding on.

Most of the fish I have owned would not eat planaria. Please don't starve
your fish thinking they will eat them. Feed your fish every day for their
health and longevity. All animals feel hunger. Please feed them daily.

I do hope you get another service to care for your aquarium the next time
you travel. :-) Several years ago I left 5 bettas in the care of someone I
trusted. They were a mess when I got back after only a week. One had died in
the stinking mess his bowl had become due to gross overfeeding. Within
minutes of walking in the door, exhausted after a long flight, I was
cleaning their bowls...........
