Without chemistry, there will be no aquariums.

WHOOOO!!! I am officially done with this semester! :D

To be completely honest, this semester was pretty brutal for me.
So what are you going to be doing with all that free time now? :O

Edit: Also what Crispii said :p Chemistry is kind of important for understand a lot of advanced aquarium topics.
(In general, chemistry is actually kind of nice. I hated it because I had a HORRIFICALLY bad teacher. As in, the school tried to fire him several times but he kept just skirting by in tests used as pretext for firing someone for lack of teaching skills. But then many years later I came to really appreciate it anyhow :D)

For starters, I want to re-scape the Altum tank. I'm planning on doing a pseudo-biotope tank.

I don't necessarily enjoy learning chemistry in school. In fact, I struggle at chemistry a lot during middle school. I remembered my teacher assigning a homework about balancing chemical equations over the weekend, which is something that I struggled a lot. After the weekend break, my teacher decided to give a pop quiz on balancing chemical equations. Of course, I failed the quiz miserably with a score of around 30 or 40 out of 100. Fortunately, my teacher decided to let everyone correct their answers for a higher grade.

Whenever it comes to aquarium, I am willing to learn everything, including chemistry.

Does it still look the same as last time you posted a pic? (totally not pushing you to post an update pick).
What would a pseudo-biotope look like?

I'm curious, what choices do you have to make? Or is it only between those two courses?

Doing a hardscape only tank with driftwood. I decided to switch it up because both the Altum and 5 gallon tank are similar with plants attach to wood. I want both aquariums to be different, not just stocking, but scapes as well.

Here's is what I'm thinking of doing: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/cc/ac/a1/ccaca1b15d488572637c1989626c8b01.jpg

What about the gazillion anubias and other plants you had on the wood in there? That looks good though. Just altums and bristlenose still?

I may use them for a future scape or donate them at my LFS for store credit. I was able to use some of the plants and add them in my 5 gallon tank where I am going to house a pair of bettas, with no divider.

Well you have to choose either physics or chem for high school I am pretty sure and plus add electives and more classes.

Really? I have to take both chemistry and physics back in high school.

I took four science classes back in HS. Five, if you want to count AP Bio as a separate science class.

I'm doing advanced bio right now so I guess I will have 2 science classes. I'm sure I could do chem and physics if I wanted but I don't like chem.

Wait, you're entering HS this year or is this your second year?
You have to pick between classes before even having had them. That is just weird. That's like having to a pick a profession before you've tried it out.

Thanks! The aquarium was once a show tank at my LFS. :)

Nice, pits are all gone! I really wonder what that was... how exactly did you end up treating him and for how long, btw?
I wouldn't put him back in the main tank yet, his caudal is still shredded. Give his fins some time to heal.
Thanks I ended up treating him for about Week and three days!
