wow, amazing that you went to all the work to calculate that.
Yeah, as others mentioned, there are certainly other factors affecting the frequency and amount of water changes, but what you did is...
if you go with the smaller fancies, you could squish in 2-3.
however, keep in mind that generally the more the variety deviates from the natural goldfish
form, the more prone to health problems it...
Its a pretty understandable situation. most of us here share the household with others of varying influence (AKA naysaying power) who are (much) less enthusiastic about the hobby.
however, it still...
adding a second t5 would mean a high light tank. the general rule is minimum 2 watts per gallon, but over 2.6 wpg and an algae infestation
is always around the corner if you make a mistake.
glad for you that things are looking up once more.
Don't let your guard down yet though!
Well then, congrats!

the hatchets may be reluctant to stay at the surface because there is so little structure to shelter them, as well as it being so bright. floating plants like frogbit, hornwort, duckweed, etc could...
sorry to say, but there are times in life where nothing fits the criteria. If someone were to ask what villa they could buy
for under 50 cents, and didn't accept none for an answer, then they'd...
blind guess but have you tried thoroughly cleaning all the media in the filter?

there are differents species of fish colloquially known as danios, from 4 inch giant danios
to the little celestial pearls. the celestial pearl danios re tiny and not very hyperactive, so
Not sure where you got that but my gut feeling says it will neutralize the pleco with it as well.
downright apalling. such a blatant disregard of life in the face of the most impressionable in society.
...but then maybe we don't really have the right to complain anyways, at least those of us...
as little as you can blame a dog for barking you can blame a territorial fish for acting as it has been hardwired to do.
As I must have mentioned before, 3 gallons isn't suitable for long term maintenance of any fish in the hobby.
depending on temperature and local laws you might be able to keep trapdoor snails. not...
the pH alone shouldn't kill the guppies, although it would stress them since the guppies are recent acquisitions, it may be
the stress from translocation, new water parameters, etc.
knowing your tank size, history, water parameters(ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, temperature) and maintenance schedule would help a lot in gauging the situation.
keeping plants probably is harder than keeping fish. you could throw in some hornwort, and if it doesn't die, it will provide refuge and O2, but you'd be better off
just physically aerating it by...

I highly recommend you talk with your parents. keep in mind a quarantine tank is small(5 gallons or so) and temporary(set up for a few weeks max). there arent many other options
to prevent disease...

I do not think ramen noodles are particularly healthy for fish. After all, when we buy fish foods we are always trying to avoid plant flours, and that is what the noodles are. Many forum members do...
What tank size is this? Did you cycle the tank?
Filter, heater, temperature?
I can tell you off the bat that you should not be getting ammonia readings, and your low and unstable pH might be an...
Agreed. The low threshold for keeping most aquarium plants is 2 watts per gallon Or 0.5 watts per liter.
2 watts per liter would result in an algae farm.
Oh, and if you really want to rear guppies and sell them, it might be worth investing in a microworm culture. Baby guppies are uncomplicated in the fact that they could be fed powdered commercial...
I haven't heard or seen anything sold as aquarium substrate that appears remotely like what you are describing. You may have to look farther afield(garden centers, etc gravel for landscaping)....
Unless you are planning on growing plants, corals or other photosynthetic organisms, any light that allows you to view the fish adequately and isn't strong enough to stress them is fine.
The tetras may not fit in the Krib's mouth, But a fully grown male krib could certainly fatally injure the tetras. The attacks could be territorial or predatory in nature, and from the way you...
