Well it was off by maybe two degrees. Would that be enough of a difference?

Yes, if anything I used too much, as I'm using the API tap water conditioner, and it says to use 1 mL for every 20 gallons of water. So I try to use less then that for my 2.5 gallon bucket, but it's...

Well, to update, I had a bit of a tragedy last night. I did a 40-50% water change and immediately following both killifish and a rasbora died. I have no idea why, but I'm pretty bummed about it.

I don't think a fumigator came into my apartment, because the deaths happened immediately following the water change, not during the several hours I was home before that. The killifish definitely...

I checked around when I noticed one of the killifish was missing, so I'm fairly sure it's still in there somewhere. Also I forgot to account for my entire system volume; I'm running a fairly large...

Thanks for the kind words. I'm really unsure about the driftwood though. I feel like it takes up way too much of the tank, cutting off a lot of light, as well as just taking up space and not looking...

I'm voting for bumblebee gobies. They are sorta territorial, and the only fish I've ever seen to hold it's own against pea puffers. They aren't that active, but they do move from perch to perch...

You could do a medium sized vase or bowl, or small tank with a bog-type inside, consisting of peat and spahgnum, and then plant carnivorous plants in it!

The keeper is about 4.5 inches tall, 6.5 inches long, and 4 inches wide, so I'm unsure what type of filtration would be small enough.
