    Like to get a betta, but I have no idea where to buy one

    Check into any local fish clubs or aquarium societies in your area. Fish you get locally from other hobbyists are usually very well taken care of and reasonably priced!

    How do I get my pH up?

    Sounds like you are doing a good job! Keep up the good work! Next time you need a test kit, print the page with the AP master test kit on the PetSmart web site, and take it with you next time you go there. They should honor the online price.

    Oscar is lonely

    Oscars get grumpier as they get older. If may be difficult for your oscar to accept any other occupants in that tank, especially if they are smaller than he/she is. Oscars also will each anything they can fit in their mouths, so keep that in mind also.

    I Got Some "Splainin" to do...........

    I know exactly what you are going through. It's been over 4 years now, and I can still cry if I think about it long enough. My dad was hit by a car, and was in a coma for a week until he left us. My mom is still not over it, and is very depressed. This is very normal how you are feeling, and...

    Nitrites unusually high, wont go down

    Does anyone feed their dogs Nutro natural choice dog food?

    I used to feed that brand to my dogs, but after the dog food made in China scare, I switched to other brands. I've really gotten into the no preservatives foods, and think that switching dog foods for variety has made my dogs even healthier. I try and buy foods that also contain fruits and...

    Do I need to add minerals?

    Time for New Food

    If you are also feeding other fish in the tank with flakes, the leftovers should eventually sink to the bottom and your corys will be eating them also. My corys also went nuts for the Omega One tubifex worms. They are a little messy, and you can't feed them to your fish more than once or twice...

    Some fish don't do well with plants in the tank because they either eat them or tear them to shreds. Other fish like african cichlids do well with texas holey rock in their tanks because it raises the ph level in the tank, and gives them territory. If you google biotopes, you can learn what...

    Do I need to add minerals?

    Omega One is also my first choice as a staple food. For variety, the New Life Spectrum brand is also very good.
