    Clean tank sharks die...

    That happened to me today. I change the water once a week and nothing has ever happened but I was running low on prime so I put what I had in the water and left to get some more. The pet store is 15 mins there and back. when I came home they were gone. I figured at least if I put the rest in...

    Re: Ded Pleco

    All my water readins were right on. My tank has been set up for 3-4 months. I took him back and they said he was sick and a little small. So they gave me a new one that was bigger and more healthy looking. He is doing good so far. Thanks for the response.

    I have a rubber-lip pleco and he is so cute. I want to get another one but they were out.

    I just bought one this afternoon. I acclimated him and put him in. He was doing fine, eating and I just looked and he was dead. I don't understand how that could have happened.

    There are tanks espically for Jellyfish. I was just lloking it up. But the tank alone is 5000 and up. The jellyfish are around 40 dollars. I have seen them on TV and they are so pretty, but a little more then I can spend.

    My 40 gallon!!!!!

    I have never really thought about live plants. Do they help keep down nitrites? Mine go down then come up and I do my water change and then they go down again. I also use Prime. Are live plants pretty easy to take care of as well?

    Thanks, I have had a problem with nitrite and did lose 3 fish. It was quite sad. But after numerous water changes it has gone down.

    I'm setting up a 40 gallon tank and have a few questions.

    Right now I have 3 zebra danios, 4 blue danios, 6 tiger barbs, 3 balas and 2 otos. And I plan on getting a bigger tank in a year or so.

    My 40 gallon!!!!!

    Thanks to you all with your comments. I love my fish. All of them are so much fun to watch. The barbs and danios are always moving. The balas are a little apprehensive. I have 3 of them. They are so pretty.

    I'm setting up a 40 gallon tank and have a few questions.

    Here are a few pictures of the tank and its inhabitants. There are a few that are kinda hard to see. The danios are too hard, so you may only see a few. These little guys are very hard to capture. But I love them all.

    To me it has the body of a leopard and the fins of a zebra. But I am no expert.
