    Help Sort of an ethics question:

    I had a small school of Hatchets and only have one left now (over the years, the others have passed on). He's all alone in a 20g long and although he eats and swims about I feel badly for him being all by himself. He is one of the first Hatchets I got and is at least 3-4 years old. I have a...

    filter and heater for divided 16g?

    A couple more questions about this tank, since it is 16 gallons. I've divided it in half for two Bettas to occupy, and now I'm looking for the proper heater and filter for it.

    Please help! Fish dying =(

    Several months ago, I had 3 Otos die in short succession, from what a type of body fungus. The first died in the tank before I was able to notice it, and the other two were quarantined and passed in the QT tank. All was well for another few months until, suddenly, one of my dear Silver...

    Help questions about Co2 and iron test results

    I got the Red Sea plant lab for Christmas, and just used it now. I hope I interpreted the results correctly. For Co2, I got 2 (1 drop made it the 'end color', and it told me to times that by two), and for iron, I got 0. To put more perspective in this, my tank stats are: 20g fw community with...
