    this is amazing. I thought my tank was big but you've got me beat. And you've got mostly little fish so you can stock a billion of them.

    I think my LFS sells them for $3 each. I have no idea how much they'd offer me, and if they do offer me anything, whether they'd want 10 or 100. I'll ask next time I'm in.

    Thanks for the snail...

    No, I would not keep a goldfish in a 14 gallon tank. A properly cared for goldfish can get very large. You'd be better off sticking with guppies in a tank that size.

    it should be fine. Anubias leaves and stems are very tough, so most fish can't chew through them. It's one of the plants that generally gets recommended for tanks with plant-eating fish in them.

    13 hours of lighting is definitely far more than you need, and is at least part of the reason you've got a lot of algae. Is this a planted tank? I generally go for 8 hours of light in planted tanks...

    Additional filtration would be good, but you don't have to get a biowheel. You could look at the aquaclear line of hang-on-back filters. They're very popular and very quiet. An Aquaclear 110 would...
