    No need for water changes

    There may be some truth to this still.....I dated a girl from Minnesota once, let's just say she seemed to always be drawn to crazy. Must have been the strong magnetic fields of her homeland.

    Bed bugs and your aquarium

    Here's an update. The bug man has come and gone, I'm back in my apartment, and the fish are fine. What I ended up doing is getting a roll of 10x20 1 mil platic dropcloth. You can usually get it at Menards, Lowes, Home Depot, etc. At first I though of draping it over the tank, then I thoughy...

    Bed bugs and your aquarium

    thanks for the links Lucy...and the advice everyone else. I've been killing them as I come across them. My feelings have morphed from horror to uneasiness to well......I'm just pretty po'd at this point. Me and the fishes are going to make it out of this one!

    Seachem Ammonia/pH Alert Stickers

    I have used them.....and they DON'T work. I had them when I first started my tank and the ammonia never read anything other than 0ppm. I picked up some test strips and I actually had 3.0 ppm. Scary to say the least.

    30 Gallon Tank How long after TSS can I expect the water to clear?

    Here is a thread containing a Q&A with tetra about tss. I would suggest doing two 50% water changes consecutively, to knock ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates down, then giving tss another try. Study up up, then give it another go. I would also suggest using the bottle that treats up to 30...

    Do you play an instrument?

    I played the violin for nine years up until I graduated high school. I miss it dearly! I can read music like a boss though because of it!

    go with a 20 gallon starter kit, or just a 29 gallon tank?

    If I were you I'd go with the 20. The reason I say this is because you mentioned you live in an older trailer. just the water weight for a 29 is 242lbs(us)+gravel+stand+whatever else you put in/on it. That's a lot of weight for a trailer floor to support. Going down to a 20g will take your water...

    Where did you meet your spouse/significant other?

    I just celebrated my year anniversary with my gf on the 21st. We were introduced by a friend of mine since preschool and her husband. The love of my life teaches English at an impoverished high school. We are planning to get engaged this fall...as soon as my ring fund gets big enough.
