When I was 4 years old, my dad got me a goldfish. The next morning I woke up and there was clearly something wrong with the fish. So I went & woke up my dad. "Your fish is dead," he said.

Easy/non-smelly Repashy making

I've been using this since April and love it. Still perfecting a surface delivery method, which my tetras prefer, but my otos/corys are ecstatic with cubes directly on the substrate.

Thanks! I've been suggesting shrimp but she's not interested. I think she might be if I showed her some, though. Her sister's getting some; maybe that'll give her the shrimp bug.

Hi --

Apologies in advance for how long this post is, or if I'm being too "fish 101." I'm about to upgrade to a 29G, too, after moving my 5-year-old son's betta from a solitary tank to a 10G...

I have no lighting contribution beyond what others have suggested, just a question: is that tank very subtley bowfront, or are my eyes tricking me? I think it's gorgeous.
