Um. Well. I've been working on doing research, and I was simply curious. I do fishless cycling, yes. I apologize for sparking hostility. The idea was recommended to me by a couple of folks.

Yeah, I always feed a mix of prepared and frozen foods. My sister's tanks have those tiny MTS pest snails, so I could probably scoop some up to treat him now and then, you think?

And could I keep...

Two would be okay, you think? It's a planted 5 gallon at most, or a 10 gallon. I may move in a couple of years so I didn't want a huge tank. Plus, I'm on a second floor and not in a big room.

Tell me about dwarf puffers.

I googled these guys a bit. How many would be happy in a 5 gallon? Are they good in a planted tank?

Okay, cool. I honestly figured as much. I just am wary of a whole bunch of moving, wiggly parts because they like to stop being moving and wiggly. I may stick with the Hagen if I don't get the in...

Bio-Wheel?

Are these worth it? I'm between the old filter I used (Hagen Aquaclear), a fluval U2 (Sundaaaaaaay bloody- wait), a biowheel or something else.

I just really have no idea if the biowheel is super...

Fluval Spec V vs Non-kit tank?

I am wondering which is best budget wise? If I buy the Fluval Spec V, I would buy a Finnex light since I read that the in box light is inadequate for plants.

I'm wanting a five gallon since it...

Smile Coming back to fish tanks!

I finally got a job and now I see it as a yarn and tank habit feeder. >_>

Snek! :D Sneeeeeeeek! That is a cute snake. They're neat, but I don't think I'd be into dealing with the feeder mice and if it got loose, the cats could easily hurt or kill it. :(

So, I found a brand new, with stickers, completely unused 20L tank. I think if my sister doesn't claim it by July, I'm gonna save my money and try to start shrimping again.

I got accepted into DARS, and I hope that leads to some groovy employment. I'd probably burn the building down if I worked another outsourced call center.

To be fair, that average is heavily skewed due to infant and child mortality. Once you made it out of those life stages, you had pretty good odds.
