    Nitrate itself won't kill fish, there were other issues going on (sounds like you have an idea of that now).

    At the end of the day sometimes we just don't know. There can be no good reason for...

    In most cases it won't make a difference. In order for it to make a difference everything else has to be so good that the salts are what is holding them back, and if that is the case even then you...

    If you need to mess with the chemistry the best way is to put some crushed coral in the filter.

    As for the sand the only one I trust is Estes Marine Sand (aka Stoney River and Ultra Reef). It...

    Fish are stunted by water quality, not tank size. They still need a tank large enough for their full size though.

    Weekly should be fine, but more is always better, especially when adding fish. Do one every 3 days or so, and a day or two after adding new fish.

    Which tetras? Your pH is fine for them. I have found danios and barbs to be much hardier. For barbs stuff like checkerboard barbs, gold barbs, cherry barbs, and rosey barbs are all great, colorful,...

    It sounds good to go unless you are using test strips. If so throw them out and buy liquid kits.

    If it is good add two more danios. Then a couple weeks later add two more. What else do you plan...

    Stocking has more to do with water quality (water changes) than tank volume. As long as all the fish have space and you keep the nitrate concentration under 20ppm or within 20ppm of the tap with...

    You don't NEED an air pump, but they are a good thing. They increase aeration and flow. I have seen them save entire setups many times when the filters stopped for no good reason. I personally would...

    You can also try adding some crushed coral to the filter just like carbon. This will add KH and help keep things more stable as well.

    I know how controllers work, we used them all the time at the shop I ran. They malfunctioned too, sometimes on. The point is that if you have enough wattage to overheat the tank, there is too big of...

    Bio-Wheels themselves are great. The rest of the filter is nothing special. I personally would only go with an AquaClear. They have more media, better flow, the media is more easily customized (more...

    I don't think you really need a multivitamin. If you have a very high quality pellet all of that will be in every bite.

    With severums it is Head and Lateral Line Erosion, not HITH. This means it is usually water quality and food quality. I did talk to a couple people though where it was caused by using carbon in the...

    My favorites would be either platies or zebra danios. Both will thrive at room temp and both are mid/top dwellers.
