Re: Moving Fish to another Tank
Hi Tom, from here in sunny CA.
I have even had Neon Tetra and Apisto eggs hatch in water above 450 ppm,
so I would not count on tds as a very good birth-control method. IMHO,
there are too many other variables.
Can you just leave the tank, or even add new fish, but catch all babies
(if any) about a month from now? [Feed them to Oscar or Kenmore to be sure
they don't get mixed with anything.]
