You are correct Pat Mary.  I did not know they were the feeder's left in his tank, I bought them all, until I read the receipt, but I did notice they were pale and just not right. Yep, my big mistake I'll not make again.

You might think that I am being very picky, Gregg,   but the reason that I keep referring to your latest batch of fish as "feeders" is because you seem to be bashing the use of a QT tank.  You have made several references which gave your thoughts about being better off by not using a QT rather than using one.  Nowhere in your references did you point out that you used inferior, ill fish as your first QT trial.  Then, the fish died and you inferred that it was the QT tank that caused the failure of those fish.  We here, are not only answering you but we are also giving information to other newbies who may be reading those posts.  We need to be sure that everyone understands that there was a basic reason for the failure of your fish.  That reason was NOT the use of a QT tank.  In fact, if you would have added those fish to your display tank, they may well have caused your other fish to become ill.

When in doubt, do a water change.

Yep, it was sick fish, not the quarantine tank.  As I looked at the set up of QT in general I came upon the doubters, a lot of them. Not to worry, I'll not put a fish in a display tank with out first being in the QT, am very curious as to the next time though.  The feeders were like 3 feet above my head and I could not see them well, nevertheless, I bought sorry looking fish. I'm sold even if I sounded like I was not.
