Write your Congressman.
As for care, there are several different source fishes for the process. Treat them like their source fish. In all honesty, they usually live just as long as undyed...

Give it a damn rest... they tank has been going for a while... he got it from someone else. If something was unbalanced, the fish would be dead already.
He never said a single thing that was...
They will find it. Just keep putting it in the same place.
Does anyone want to explain where they got the idea that Oto's give one care about the number of other otos in the tank? Other than...

I assume by "fighting" you mean the fin flaring and little zigzag-teleport dance that two fish will occasionally engage in?
That is mostly harmless, and nearly always safe for the fish. Those are...
"can I add a second gourami? According to aqadvisor I can"
The minimum size that Aqua doesn't get bitchy about his stock is 30 gallon. So, he has at least that.
I would look for something else in the environment that cut the danio. A sharp rock or jutting decoration.
Obviously, your tank is of decent size, thus, I find it highly unlikely that the Dwarf...
So, you are heavily criticizing someone's idea...
With a HEAVY subtext that you feel they are doing everything WRONG; and need to do things your way...
While almost completely ignoring the actual...

Neons are not really "new tank" fish. They like a tank that has been around a few months. Put them in too early and all you get is 6 hours of death spirals.
The Harlies are tougher and as long...
There are a lot of extra critters living in your tank that you did not put there on purpose. Don't freak out just because some happen to be big enough to see.
LEDs are fine for plants, at least for Amazon Swords and Wisteria.
If you are looking for some:
Cheap, easy to install, waterproof, and at...

If you want to change the gravel, change it. There's not enough of anything valuable going on in there to be worth not liking, or worse, hating your tank.
It much the same principal as running...

First, wait a while on the Neons and the shrimp. Despite their name as a beginner fish, they really like an establish aquarium to live. Otherwise, you bring them home, they do the six hours of...

Back to case on topic...
Has there been major advances in Ghost Shrimp hardiness? If the shrimp are thriving, his water chemistry cannot be off enough to be a true issue. I am used to them...

I am staying with the vacuuming comment.
You have to take water out for the water changes. The worst of the contaminants are on the bottom.
If it was a special case, and the tank held some...

Do water changes.
Both of those keep your water clean, which is the biggest treatment you can give for either. There are a number of chamicals, like some antifungals, that may...
Brown Algae feeds on something in the substrate. It goes away on its own once it has consumed all of the silicates or whatever it is that it eats. I think silicates is wrong... whatever. Someone...
May I suggest using Buenos Aires Tetras for your fish in cycle?
They are extremely hardy, and more than likely to survive the cycling process.
They are larger fish, which seems to help... and...
They seem fond of zuchinni too.

First Question - I think the beginners section and, if you keep rarer fish, the subsections like "Predators" to be the only useful sections of the forum. The rest is filled with commonly agreed upon...
I never said they would do well. I think I said the opposite.
I said they will survive. At least, most of them will.
Well, the guy said he was stressed out. Sounds like he is in a dorm, and it is finals time before spring break. Getting a discourse on the fishless cycle and a bill of goods detailed enough to list...
We're pic addicts, always looking for our next hit.

I have tried Neons and Swordtails a few times... the Neons are always tightly balled at the bottom of the tank. I have since learned that means they are unhappy.
Once you decide you want the...
Oh Dutchie, please tell me it's not just that simple.
Do you just drop in the piece of iron and let it go under the substrate? Nothing toxic builds up?
I guess I should have responded more positively.
Small kids love to feed the fish, and they love to overfeed.
The MTS do a wonderful job of keeping down the mess... and I have deep gravel for...
