Yes, I had thought that 'tank crashed' meant that something went terribly wrong and everything/most everything died.
Anyway, I didn't move the substrate when moving. My test of the pH on the water...

While I can't say for certain, I would assume that the water supply is the same as the previous place since I only moved half a mile.
I admit that I haven't tested pH lately, I usually just test...

Yeah, I kept the old filter media (and kept it wet during the move so the bacteria wouldn't die), and I've always treated water with declorinator before putting it in the tank, and at the very least...

Parameters as of my most recent test last night:
Temp: 79 (F)
I am at a loss for what is wrong with my tank. There are only 3 things that...

Oh Lordy I'm not keeping the fish in that tiny container. It was just in there to transfer it to a different tank and to get a clear photo on the way. Right now it's in a tank that should still be...

How would I go about treating internal worms or parasites?

Yesterday I noticed that the belly of one of my black neon tetras had swelled up like a balloon. I netted it out of the main tank and put it in quarantine. Now I need to try and figure out what's...

I'm just wondering about any thoughts on the build in the video - I did not make it, but I might consider doing the same thing someday, particularly if I ever do end up doing a truly...

Perhaps these will help: Bronze Cory, Glofish, and for good measure, Zebra Danio.
It is worth noting that there seems to be a consensus that due to their small genetic pool, glofish are extremely...

For the first time in months, my quarantine tank is empty, has been for a week or so. After my last water test the nitrates were a bit higher than I'd like, so I'm stepping up my water change...
Keep in mind that everything I say here is from someone who is fairly new to the hobby - while I researched off and on for a couple years before starting my first tank, I've only had one running for...
*puts on grammar nazi hat*
Well duh, it's because the person was asking the wrong question. Of course you can put an Arowana in a five gallon tank - the question they were supposed to ask is,...

Thanks everyone, it makes me feel good that somebody's reading this!
This is the...

I've taken out the fry net now. I'd say that probably 3/4 of the fry that hatched have made it this far. I'm going to let the smallest ones grow out a bit before I start looking for a home for them...
+1 to that.
Some generations back they injected the gene into a zebra danio embryo (so all glofish were born that way, even the first generation) and so they now they are all born that way. The...

An update on the fry:
Getting bigger, still mostly transparent. Last time I counted,...

It's been a mixed day as far as the aquarium goes. I noticed an infestation of Malaysian trumpet snails which probably came in on the dwarf tears (which are, themselves, not dead - I can see tiny...

3 bucks and two fish stores later, I've got something that should work.

So, I get home from work today, and suprise suprise...
Don't know who it was, but...

No photos this time, I'll take some when the current quarantine group is done.
I am done with glofish. Aside from the one difficult quarantine I had recently, the only fish I've had die in QT are...
I'm given to understand that plecos need to have driftwood in their tank for their health. I'm just wondering how vital it is - I've got driftwood in my main tank, but I don't know if I should add...

After having a glofish fatality in my main tank the other day, and since it's not just me that's experiencing this, I think I'm not going to add any more to my tank. I *may* add some regular zebras,...

So I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed this. Besides one group of quarantined fish where a cascade of diseases nearly wiped them out, the only fish I've had die in quarantine have been glofish,...
I've got two basically. One would be an indoor (common) goldfish tank. Would have to be pretty big for that.
The main one, the one I don't think I could probably ever do, is a massive paludarium....

Honestly, I am jealous of your plant growth. Good going!
