    How the heck do those even count as tips, the only ones even close to good are not keeping cichlids in a 10g, and the salmonella one. here's a few tips from me;

    JUST TO BE SAFE AND SURE REMEMBER THESE ARE ALL JOKES, BY NO MEANS DO ANY OF THESE THINGS!!!(but your here on the AC you know that already)

    Never hit glass face panels of an aquarium with a hammer, If it is a neccesity, only do it softly.

    Do not attempt to feed your fish with household cleaners, only use household cleaners during water changes to clean inside tank glass.

    Some types of aquarium lighting may or may not be submersible, the only way to know is by thorough testing, always be sure you are in physical contact with water when testing.

    Fish need human interaction, be sure to bang on and tap on your aquarium often.

    Be sure to catch and examine your fish out of the tank often, and for extended periods of time, preferably under the brightest lights available, this is the only sure way of diagnosing any possible malady.

    If you decide to go on vacation, it is a good idea to empty one large container of food in the tank, and turn off any filters heaters or air pumps for the duration of your absence.

    Any chemical used to remove chlorine from water during a water change is best used 2 to 4 hours after putting the water into the tank, this allows the chlorine to accumulate in one area making it easier to eliminate with chemicals.

    Water is just water, don't worry too much, your 100 gallon tank is perfectly safe resting on 4 TV dinner tables even if it hangs over the sides a bit.

    Remember, fish are just fish, allow them to die or inadvertently/purposely kill them if given any chance, preferably by following my advice.

    Anyway, keeping fish successfully can require a lot of work, and I know I'm just preaching to the quire here. But it really isn't rocket science and it isn't insanely difficult, but with tips like those given to Ryuu from err, whatever company it might as well be, I wonder how many well intentioned people have lost their fish because of "some companys" advice like this

    Sorry about the long and slightly off topic post, just those "tips" got me going on some kind of ironic insane rant.
    No matter how much I learn or know I'm still gonna be a NOOB, but that doesn't mean I'm an idiot!
