    This 10g stocking plan ok?

    You could certainly do that. One slight downside: it won’t work. I would simply do the chillies alone.

    I'm o-fish-ially a broke fishservant

    If you enjoy it and gain from it, by all means continue with it. :D This sentence is for both you and the OP. I just can’t say the same thing as you about my own experience though... It’s not that tank maintenance makes me uncomfortable, it’s going overboard with the aquariums that does. I’m...

    Me too. I’m also unsure how it can be addicting, and not intrusive. Superhumans perhaps?

    Slow down bud! :eek: Sometimes when I see members note their countless aquariums and the costs of running them all... it makes me feel uncomfortable. Seriously.

    20 Gallon Tank Advice on low maintenance aquarium

    At the very least: once a week to do a 50% water change and make observations. However, I'm also not confident getting a fish tank is a good idea for you provided your situation.

    Are American mosquitoes any dangerous? Here, they merely itch. British wildlife is comparatively tame to other regions. Lol. The real bothersome insects to me are craneflies. I know I said this at the start of this thread, but I just can’t stand em’.

    55 Gallon Tank Cichlids not hiding!

    What’s the length and width of the tank? The caves pictured don’t offer any hiding anyway. The fish can still see each other with ease. Slate is an inert rock, meaning if you have a below ideal pH for these fish, making a big rock structure out of limestone rather than inert rock would be...

    How bad are mosquitoes in your area? I never see them here in the East of the UK, however I went to visit my granddad in the South earlier this year and when going on walks I had to swat giant balls of mozzies away every minute.

    Only applies to some ants in South America, who are unfortunate to share habitat with anteaters. :D In this sense, ants are the same as humans... except for the acid glands. However, humans have each other to keep themselves on their toes.

    A long unanswered question of mine: what is the purpose of anteaters?

    Topaz Puffer glass surfing - maybe solved!

    It would have to be very loud or of a low frequency to bother him. If it were bothering him, chances are he would surf away from the source of the noise, not towards it.

    Topaz Puffer glass surfing - maybe solved!

    Is the pond water noise just a trickling noise?

    Topaz Puffer glass surfing - maybe solved!

    This thread is not about them; it’s about the topaz puffer. This is good news. :) I would still try to improve the scape; limits stress and boredom - and therefore glass surfing - in the future. Do you know of any other factors that could’ve perhaps caused him to glass surf?
