    Completely/Evenly Random Discussion 2: The Randomer Discussion

    I know that the tank water contains very little Beneficial bacteria, but that’s the only thing that comes to mind. Could the leaves be holding some sort of bacteria on them? Bacteria can form in many different places. Anyways if you have fish there its probably a good thing that the tank is...

    Perhaps it cycled faster than you thought. How long have you had it?

    Tired of making mistakes

    All I can say was this was just the result of an Uncycled tank. If you keep regular water changes, it should reduce the impact the water quality has on your fish.

    Sick Serpae Tetra - need recommendations TIA

    Is it affecting any other fish? If it doesn’t it could be some sort of genetic disorder. I would just keep watching to see if any of the other fish are affected. And than see if it is infectious, and than formulate the next step.

    Will guppy siblings breed?

    If you choose to keep breeding make sure to add new DNA every once in a while, otherwise deformities will start to form. This can be as simple as adding one or two guppies.

    Keeping cats out of fish tanks?

    If it is harnessed tightly it should work. But I believe a tank lid would be better. With a mesh, if a cat stood on it, the harness might give way and let the cat fall in. The reptile mesh was to keep animals in not out, but than again it depends on how tightly it is harnessed.

    Cory possibly losing some fin

    I would try a softer substrate if you think it may be impacting long term health. But if the substrate doesn’t have many sharp or rough edges, it should be fine.

    Terrible present

    As said before it is best to prize the health of the established fish, before that of the new arrivals. The guppies may have been previously diseased. I’d set up another tank just to QT them and make sure the rest of your stick doesn’t get infected.

    What some really easily taken care of plants that can grow in bright conditions? I’m not really good with plants.

    In my opinion, I hate all of those movies. Don’t get me wrong, they’re good movies and all, but they stayed so far from the books that I find it hard the enjoy them. Since I read the 12 books before seeming the 3 movies, I can’t stop seeing errors the directors did to make it appeal more, such...

    Yeah I don’t completely trust the petsmart QT strategies. So many of their fish ends up sick.

    Recommendation for heavily planted 4g Cube

    You could try to keep one of the rarer varieties of shrimp atleast.

    Can frozen blood worms introduce disease into a tank?

    First time of heard of this brand so I’m not sure. Sorry. It can happen. Bloodworms can carry diseases and have to be sterilized by the company that makes them. And it is not unheard of that a viable egg makes it through. They treat the frozen the same way so I’m assuming it is going to be...
