    That's normal for auratus, males change color when they reach maturity. They're highly territorial fish, and typically claim the whole tank as their own space. (Don't play well with others.)

    A bristlenose Ancistrus is the best bet for keeping your tank clear of algae. A single fish would be fine in a 40 breeder, so would a pair but they'd produce loads of fry that would eventually...

    If you can't find a particular species you want at a local nursery check out e-bay. I've found a variety of interesting odd succulents there over the years, along with the common varieties.

    Pothos aka devil's ivy is great for that, I remember one person a few years back who had it growing out of the aquaclear filter. He said it kept the nitrates almost zero.

    Use 2 nets, one slightly smaller than the other. It's much easier to catch and move large, floppy fish that way.

    Doesn't matter, the salt is in the water they're packed in. Drain the water and you get rid of nearly all the salt.

    I occasionally open a large can of french cut green beans, drain it, and dump into my 220. The silver dollars, cichlids, Synodontis and bristlenose all love them. Always cleaned up the next morning.

    Mollies are surface feeders. That one has a little larger lower lip than usual, but not too extreme IME. The clamped fins, however, don't look good. A healthy fish doesn't swim around like that....

    I've seen both of species chase other fish around a bit, though the red tail botias are the worst. I had a single red tail in a 55 with Australian rainbows that actually killed them off one by one. I...
