    Fish sitting at bottom of tank for three weeks

    1. NEVER CLEAN or rinse the bio weel!, the bio-wheel is housing the good bacteria that cycle your tank. If the bio-wheel is dirty with detritus, you can rub it down with a papper towel, you can shake it in old tank water. But when you rinsed it in tank water, chlorine would have killed the...

    Tetra Schooling Behavior

    If you were to restock in the future, consider keeping fewer species so that you can keep larger schools of the fish you have. the bare minimum of 6, is a very small number as far as fish schools go. and sooner or later, one or more will die and if you only had the bare minimum, you now have...

    Switching Water Conditioners

    Just throw the other one out and use prime instead. It takes 2 eye dropper drops to treat a gallon of water. It is safe to add more then you need, so if you change half a gallon of water, just add 2 drops.

    1 Gallon Tank Beginner Mistakes

    Your 1 gallon tank may not ever cycle. But even if it did, you still don't want a lot of decaying food waste and poo in your tank. You use a tiny tube to vacuum a one gallon tank, and you remove a very small percent of the waste each time. Even in a larger tank, more gravel is just more...
