    Hi, I tried searching the archives but could not find out whether you need to cut back feeding your fish if you are putting in zucchinis or cukes? Are the fresh veggies a "treat" or is it considered part of their dietary intake?

    Sea Glass

    I bought sea glass for my Betta's tank, washed it, rinsed it and it looks like it is dirty in the tank. It's not shiny. What's the best way to get the glass to sparkle? Do I need to boil it? The internet says use soap and hot water but don't want to contaminate the glass. Thanks.

    "Cycle" for your tank...

    If a person wants to cycle their tank quicker and is unable to find bio spira or Tetra Safe Start, how good is "Cycle"? LFS said it was better than the ones I just mentioned and safer. That I could drink it without any effects, it's that safe. So, do anyone of you use it? LFS said you...

    How much food do I give to my betta?

    Do I feed Wiggles twice a day? How much one or two pellets / worms? We've been feeding him every other day one / two pellets in the a.m. and the same in the p.m. Do you think he's underfed? He gets soooo excited when he sees us. Thanks.

    Backgrounds - Dummy ME

    I just found out BY ACCIDENT that you need to wet the back of fish tank backgrounds in order for them to "pop" in your tank! I bought a pretty background and couldn't figure why it wasn't showing through the tank. My husband just looked at the tank and mentioned how realistic a section of it...
