She showed up with a fish in a cup and we resurrected an old 1 gallon tank that we had from years back when they were little. We tried several times previously and kept losing fish. I did not know about the nitrogen cycle, so there you have it. So this time around I did all my homework, learned about the nitrogen cycle, learned about the tank was too small, so I moved him into a 5 gallon tank, and then I got him a couple of snails to hang out with (I ordered one, two showed up at my door). Now the 5 gallon tank is too small because the snails grew like crazy, and I've got a 29 gallon tank coming next week. Mostly I am here to learn more about biological filtration, and figure out what kind of filter I need for the 29 gallon. Right now my intention is to not get any more animals except maybe a couple of ghost shrimp or cherry shrimp. I would like to keep a 29 gallon tank under populated because I am disabled and it's difficult for me to do frequent water changes. It is as equally difficult for me to arm twist the teenagers into doing them for me.
