    I have no idea honestly. They only apply it to "Fish Credit" so I cant use it on food or equipment, which I could actually use at the moment, and I'm all full on fish (especially with a Tupperware on our kitchen floor, the wife ain't happy). I will have to just hold onto it for a while, until we have room for more tanks, and then after getting some more, or a bigger one, then I can think about more fish. Dang little apartment we stuck in...:mad:

    That's pretty crappy having fish only credit. Tell them to catch up with the rest of the world and let you use the credit for anything fish related. Over here you get store credit and can buy anything in the shop with it, doesn't have to be fish related. Otherwise buy fish with the credit and sell them online and get cash for them. Sell them on ebay, gumtree or craig's list and say pick up only, 200miles northeast of Montana :)

    Are you saying gum tree is 200 miles northeast, or you are? Lol. If it is you, I sure hope you brought a lot more than Aussie clothes! It went from summer, to the beginning of winter, right quick! Not full on winter, as it got just below freezing last night, we have another 60 degrees to go down, hit the negative 30s before I call it winter, and we are getting our cold from the north so...

    The only problem with buying fish, and selling them, is that I would have to know what fish are desirable, for any of those selling methods, and more importantly, have a place to put them. On top of that, I would have to NOT get attached and want to keep them.

    The store is rather behind in some ways, but is the only decent store for getting fish within 100 miles. They do ONLY fish, and then have a dog food store attached. But that's ALL it is, dog food, treats, fish, fish related products, unlike Petco, or Petsmart, which is all types of pets, or WalMart, which is everything, and those are my local options. Well, there is the one guy, who sets up aquariums, and does maintenance on them, whom I purchased my frogbit and christmas moss from. He also told me if I want to trade RCS later, to make sure and diversify bloodlines, to send him a message. He only does fresh shrimp, and salt seahorses (is there even a fresh seahorse?) And he actually just had a set breed and has a bunch of baby seahorses he is selling!

    Anyways, I dont have plans for fish credit yet. Used some of what I had to get my 3 Pea Puffers, which are doing wonderfully in my community tank, (MUCH BETTER than my two wild honey gouramis), so I only have a couple bucks left, but its indefinite as long as the shop is open. I enjoy the raising of fry, more as a casual hobby, just to see them grow and change. It's fun and educational for my 5 year old as well. I must say also, that despite my opinion that pea puffers are about the cutest fish EVER, these gourami fry growing, are sure getting cute with their ITTY BITTY little feelers developing! Looks like little tiny hairs hanging down that they wave around, lol.

    There are no freshwater seahorses but there are freshwater pipefish (related to seahorses), although most pipefish are saltwater too.

    Seahorses are cool and I reckon your kids would love them. They are also endangered now so the more people breeding them, the better.

    I must admit I enjoyed watching baby fish grow. They start off being clear and tiny and swimming around just under the surface as plankton. Then they start to go silver on the sides and move into the water column. Then colour up as they mature.

    That's an interesting blue colour on the baby in the first pic. Do they all have it?
