    New Goldfish Tank Cloudy And Yellow?

    You should really have a filter that's x10 your amount of water for Goldies. The one that came with the kit - as you're finding out - is struggling a bit. I'd recommend picking up a canister filter; it will serve you well in the long run.

    Should I Put These Fish In My 10 Gallon?

    No tank mates. At all. In fact; not even the Goldfish. He needs a much, MUCH bigger tank. Once he is out you have a perfectly serviceable 10 gallon with lots of fish to choose from.

    Success Story Mixing Tropical Fish With Goldfish

    I'd imagine mixing Tropical and Coldwater fish mostly results in a loss for one, or both parties. Optimum water for the trops will result in an increased metabolic rate for the coldwater fish, thus decreasing their lifespan. Optimum temperature for the Goldies will result in decreased...

    Dwarf Gourami And Betta?

    Bettas and Gouramis are both from the suborder 'Anabantoidei' - putting them together would effectively be the equivalent of putting two Bettas together.

    Fish Gasping After Medicine Put In.

    Medicines containing Formaldehyde (of which can be found in NT Labs no.9) can bind to, and reduce the Oxygen levels in the water - generally it's advised to run an airstone during medication to keep your Oxygen levels nominal. That could go someway to help explaining the gasping.

    Unfiltered Tank Zero Ammonia

    You cannot Cycle a tank without a filter, because you do not "cycle a tank". You Cycle filter media, as that is where both colonies of bacteria that facilitate the Nitrogen Cycle reside.

    10 Gallon Tank Overstocked??

    Aquadvisor is inaccurate, and should not be relied upon. It fails to take into account swimming space, temperament incompatibilities, alongside a host of other important factors. Much better to ask here! The reason for a larger tank being preferred when dealing with Bettas in communities (a...

    10 Gallon Tank Overstocked??

    Do not add any more fish to your tank, for the love of Poseidon. Your tank is too small for a Betta to coexist with small schooling fish, let alone all the others you intend to add. It wouldn't even be big enough to house any of those fish individually.
