BB, an interesting O2 observation

Remember the O2 thread and the bottom line that it only seems to affect air breathing fish such as loaches and corydoras?

Well in the store where I bought my striata they were using some kind of bottled air to fill the bags. I couldn't tell what it was as it came out of a pipe that disappeared into the ceiling.

They used it on every bag of fish that I saw caught, until that is, the guy caught my striatas. This bag he filled with a quick grab of the top to trap the atmospheric air... I never gave it much thought until I came back on LOL today. I should have asked him why he hadn't used the compressed air instead...
