    With regular water changes, I doubt that mineral buildup in the tank from flourite would be an issue. Also, if my rusty memory is correct, flourite doesn't itself contain many nutrients from the...

    This is not necessary for their survival, but the mollies and platies would likely benefit too from periodic feedings with boiled spinach or other vegetables as they are omnivorous in nature.

    C. zygatus supposedly can be distinguished from C. rabauti by growing larger, having less vivid colors as well as bright orange markings somewhat above and behind the eyes.

    Pretty sure they were zygatus because of how large they got as well as certain color patterns, notably the orange eyebrows.

    If the spots do not move around, they may be nerite eggs. Nerites tend to lay single eggs randomly scattered around the tank on hard surfaces.

    That's pretty funny. Just looking at the video I don't think the dolphin intended to hit the guy. It seemed like it was boxed in on either side by other dolphins and didn't have the presence of mind...

    Where are you located? If you can get it either retail or by mail order, NorthFin makes some really good pellets (no flakes last I checked) with little filler.

    Bioload-wise that should be okay, though I'm not sure how well the shrimp will play with the loaches or the tetras.
    Instead of 2 aquaclear 110s, have you considered a single canister filter?

    I'm even less certain about the second one, though the bark is similar to cherries. Any photos of the tree during the summer?

    From the pics, I'm not able to give a confident ID. However, the budding leaves, bark and twigs make me think box elder (Acer negundo).
    Is the last picture of the same tree? the bark looks slightly...

    It sounds like a head/spinal injury. The chance of recovery is low and if the fish recovers, the chance of chronic complications is high. If I were you I would euthanize the iridescent shark and...
