    But where are the babies?  
    One thread for fish watching and general behaviour comments (videos ), etc.
    Another thread for housing & maintenance & filtration & DIY monster fish keeping.
    Another thread for overall summarising of milestones.  New acquisitions, deaths, tank mates, house changes, business trips away, GPG birthdays, etc
    And  of course ... one thread dedicated towards  the pursuit of babies... or perhaps the hunt for buying more adults???

    Heavy breathing & erratic behaviour are indicative of chemical poisioning. Do you aerosol spray (anything) near your air pumps? Or not washed hands after treating garden etc?
    A big water change might help if you see similar situation happening next time.

    Dedicated guppy breeders separate fry by sexes long before they become sexually mature. How else could you develop a strain of new purchases with confidence otherwise? 
     How they sex 1cm sized fish is fascinating and a joy to watch the speed/experience / volume of sorters. It's all manually done. 8 hour days. Several fish per second & out of water.
    I've seen fish farms destroy entire vats  (8000 + fish) because a male has managed to jump in somehow.

    Some other advantages of spreading the water around is dilution of waste, mixing temperatures especially if room heating and of course automatic water changes. All the linked tanks become one larger tank. Hopefully more stable - less work. One could compare each single tank to be similar to a floating cage in a bigger body of water. 
    Also possible to flood feed green water for fry or enhancing natural colours or implement a plant filter (outside).

    For those that fill with a hose, adding a tap (that can hold pressure) at water end is useful.

    This is getting a little off topic from water bridges but the concept of overflows was raised.
    Two main variations of the same theme. Old photos have been found. (what a blast down memory lane)
    and of course you can just drill the tank very easily through tank bottom (using stand pipe to set water level) or through tank side.

    Yes I made sure it was a PINK giant gourami, not the common grey type. Much more tasty than I expected but also more bones than expected
