And a $5 timer from the hardware store or Walmart so that you don't have to ever deal with a light being left on for too long again. ;)



Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?

Just keep swimming.

They are an algae ball. I've personally seen mine move around the tank. But they are pretty much just a live decoration. (:

They help stop algae and are good cleaners.

Gotta say, I love my amazon sword. 12 hrs of light a day and it does well even being nibbled on. Seems like it's rather slow growing for me.

Amazon sword? o_o I hope mine gets big someday. It's branching outward rather than up, which is okay I suppose. Just wish it would get taller so it doesn't look so silly in the big tank.
