What is the most interesting fish to feed?

Love the rummy nose tetra- like a fighter squadron in a dogfight when sinking pellets arrive - when I get close to the tank they get in formation post haste!

I like the lamb chop Rasbora, which I...

I once had a decorative pagoda in the tank. Never saw my 12 amano. One day I pulled the pagoda and they all swarmed out! They might just be in hiding.

Good suggestion I just looked but no traces there either. It's a mystery! With the tank wipeout before, they were all just under the substrate for some reason, but this isn't the case now.

They can definitely breed in a 20 gallon. I had 6 in one and two fry made it to maturity without me trying anything for it. I had floaters too like salvinia and duckweed.

Yep that's your garden variety pond snail. I had a few hitchhike in with some plants and a year later you only see 3 to 4 adults moving about at any given time. I guess I feed sparingly enough.

Thanks! Taking out so many floaters and plant cover meant more light so the algae tried to come back. I lowered the PAR so the algae won't take hold.

multiple tank syndrome hits again (suggestions)
