Here is a tip for you fish lovers.

If you see your fish swimming on its side or floating to the top of the tank ,get a a container or a soup mug ,fill it half full with the tank water then add 2 scoops of Epsom salts .Remove the fish from the tank and put it in the container or mug.supervise the fish for at least 1 minute .remove the fish from the container and put it back into the tank.

Do not feed your fish for 1 day .

anyone with pet rabbits i will put another tip on here later .

Get these wrong and god knows what it'll do to the poor fish!

Thanks Venice. Lets hope the 'rabbit advice' is more specific!

Well I for one will take her advice with the Epsom salts if I ever find my Rabbit swimming on its side.

My dad used to take Epsom salts all the time.. not sure what for, but he was a big swimmer. (true)

I believe it can be used for easing constipation and wind, might leave a bubble trail if swimming.

Are you saying my dad would have been jet propelled, Casper ? He made copious amounts of cabbage soup.. maybe that's the answer. We could have opened soup kitchens when I was a kid.
The stink was awful too, but he was born in 1902 , and didn't have an easy life. Bread and dripping, soup, poor man's scouse , and porridge so far as I remember him saying. Nothing much to get the teeth stuck into. Probably why nearly all that generation ended up with false teeth, at an early age.
For Christmas, a tangerine, a new penny and a book.
We moan !

As you say granny an unfortunate generation, two wars, poverty, but they were the backbone of the nation, all the old values we were brought up with are being washed away, its a pleasure when driving that if you give way to someone you get a wave in response it makes the day, instead of the scowls and the two fingers.
