I have had no problems with my fish and the aquarium so far.. that was until tonight. I was going to do my first water change this weekend. The aquarium with fish has been up since Friday. I noticed that the water is a little bit foamy looking at the top. Is this normal??? If not, what do I need to do to fix this problem??? Thanks. :)

Foam doesn't have to be a sign of problem but usually are.

What is the nitrate Level in the tank?
How much do you feed?
Did you cycle the tank before adding fish?

I suggest you do a water exchange now and than maybe another one this weekend.

I am going to do a water change tonight. I just hope my fish will be ok until then. I will do one tonight and another this weekend and see if that takes care of the problem. I will also check the water levels for nitrate and nitrite, etc.
