    Best answer: 1. Fill the bio orb a little more than half way. Use water conditioner
    2. Start and adjust heater (make sure it's fully submerged. If it's not a good submersible heater then wait till there's enough water in the tank.
    3. Adjust the temperature using a single finger to compare the new water and the water in the bowl with the fish.
    4. Run the filter and wait a day.
    5. Recheck the temp, if the tank and bowl are about the same, pour the fish and dirty water into the tank.
    If the temp isn't the same, adjust the heater and add warm or cool water, then wait and recheck. You want to start with the tank the same temp as the bowl before pouring in the fish and bowl water.
    6. Over the next few weeks, slightly raise the temperature using the heater and thermometer, until it's over 78F, but not over 81F. Be careful, do not make sudden changes to the temp.
    7. Feed very little for six weeks while the biology of the tank stabilizes.
    8. Change less than half the water weekly using a mini siphon gravel cleaner and wipe slime off the walls.
    9. In 2 months you will be able to do it less often, and feed a little more.
    10. Never remove the fish for cleaning, or overclean the tank. Never

    Make sure to use Prime water conditioner to treat new water before adding to the tank.

    I recently bought 3 tanks. Two 10 gallon tanks, and one 3.5 gallon tank. I cannot afford to buy any more tanks. I recently found out my friend had a bunch of fish living in horrible conditions so I told her I would take them from her. All my tanks are cycled, heated, filtered, and ready for fish. This fish I am receiving are, 8 neon tetras, 5 make fancy guppies, 1 blue dwarf guarmi, 2 catfish (extremely small, about an inch and a half. Fully grown) and 2 male bettas. How should I stock this. Please take into account I cannot afford any new tanks and want the best living situation possible. Thank you!

    Best answer: I've heard of this, but you would need to be sure the water temperature doesn't exceed the temp Goldfish can tolerate, since they like cooler water.

    You also need to consider whether the water is coming from a well or city water. If it's city water, then you need to contend with the added chlorine, which is bad for fish. In that case you need to add a chlorine remover product.

    Of course, then there's the winter if you live in a more nrthern area, and you would need a tank for the fish, because us northerners know all horse water freezes in the winter.

    Ask at your local farm supply for tips on this.

    Hi my Gold Fish is 6 yrs old. Now it's several days it has refused to eat and sits at the bottom of the tank. The Ammonia level seems to be normal and the fish gasps for more water and rapidly breath with opening its mouth more than usual. Today it almost died and lost the balance totally and stopped breathing ... took it immediately out of water in a basket full of fresh water and conditioned and massaged my fish back to life ... it began breathing again and lamely has got the balance back ... but is in a very poor condition... I changed the water in tank and put it in tank again , but it went to the bottom and is just holding on to survival. I had also used some plant based anti fungal and also mild antibiotic but obviously didn't help ... any idea ? Is it a bacterial infection ? Can it be TB ?

    A few days ago I got 2 snails from my garden to keep as pets. I've been really interactive with them and have picked them up and put them on my legs and so on. However I've been doing some research about them and I looked on this and saw that people have said that you shouldn't interact with them because they can carry diseases and now I am really worried because one of them has lightly bitten me twice but nothing has happened. Should I do something about this? I'm getting really concerned. I did see that it said freshwater snails can carry diseases but can ordinary garden ones aswell?

  • Opinion on aquarium stocking?

    Best answer: For my 75 gallon I have mostly smaller fish, because I like giving them more room to swim around compared to their body size.

    Best answer: For my 75 gallon I have mostly smaller fish, because I like giving them more room to swim around compared to their body size. A 75 gallon for a 2-3 inch fish would be more like a mansion, whereas for a 12 inch fish it would be like a small apartment compared to the size of the fish and their minimum tank size needs. If that makes sense. And I'd like to give my fish the mansion experience, so I got a large tank with small fish. I think if I wanted really large fish I would want to give them more space like a 180 gallon tank or more, because I prefer going way over the minimum required when it comes to tank size. Having small fish also allows me to have larger schools without overstocking the tank.
    So I mostly have small peaceful fish - Panda Corydoras Catfish, Cardinal Tetras, Gold Tetras, Harlequin Rasboras, and a Honey Gourami. I also have a couple medium-sized fish - a Bolivian Ram and a Bristlenose Pleco. I chose the Gourami and the South American Cichlid to stand out color wise and behavior wise as center piece fish. Even if I had some large fish, I'd want ones that could go with my smaller fish without eating them and the larger ones would serve as center pieces rather than all the fish in the tank being large. Like, for example, a Discus in with big schools of Rummynose and Cardinal Tetras.

    The only exception I would make would be if I or a lot of people seeing the tank have poor eyesight or won't be able to see the tank as closeup. Like if I was designing the tank for a restaurant or business or a household where the people are mostly very elderly. Or once I was elderly. In that case, I would want fish large enough to see easily - probably no smaller than some of the larger Rainbows (Australian, Boesemani) or Congo Tetras.
