  1. It Starts With a Fish

    As different as some of our journeys to MTS are, in the end they're very much the same. They start out with a fish, a tank, a dream.

    For me, it was Copper. He started out as a little feeder goldfish I won at a school carnival. My parents at the time had a tropical aquarium with angels, and I wasn't really old enough to understand why they weren't happy that I'd brought home another fish. Since we had nowhere else to put him at the time, he was plunked into an old vase while my parents

  2. Cardinal Tetras

    I bought 8 cardinal tetras. They are around an inch long and cost me $2.99 apiece @ Aquatic Critter in Nashville. I added them to the 10g QT that I have kept cycled with 7 black neons. I moved those guys back to my 29 S.A. tank.

I tried treating my fish with tetracycline, triple ...

    I have a 50 gallon columm tank can you put swordtails and leaf fish together?
  5. The memory of goldfish

    A lot of people will tell you that goldfish only have a 3 second memory. This is simply not true. If you think about it a goldfish would hardly be able to swim with just a 3 second memory. It has been scientifically proven that goldfish do not have a 3 second memory. Goldfish have been trained to do tricks, recognize their owners and more! Still, when i ask someone, most of the time they say that goldfish do have a 3 second memory. I just want to let everyone know that this is a myth.
