Thank you, those are great points. I did read about how some medicines can kill off any of the good bacteria in a filter too, and water changes can help with such a small bio load, its good to know I...

Thanks, I felt bad for the poor thing. Its sick and then I stick it in a violent tank. Knock on wood, everyone else looks okay so far.

I love guppies, but unless you want to deal with a lot of fry, stick with the males (I prefer their colourful tails anyways).

The tank looks really nice! Are you seeing any water leaking? Its a pretty big job to tear it all down and rebuild if you're not actually having problems yet. Have you been testing your water? You'll...

Breeding pond snails

It looks like you'd be very overstocked. A betta would be good for a 5g. But would be iffy with shrimp. I've had one with adult red cherry and amano shrimp, but there was never a cherry baby to be...
