I personally do not find it necessary to do 100% daily changes when treating for anything besides external parasites. Its a personal choice, but I think daily 50%s with a siphon are fine with one 100% per week, because it will cause less stress. I found that when I moved my male VT to a one gallon tank to treat him for internal parasites and did large water changes, he just got really stressed. I ended up just feeding him soaked medicated pellets on his normal feeding schedule in his normal five gallon tank and it worked just fine.

Clean water is obviously a must with fin rot, but ammonia isn't going to build up that fast in a 2.5 gallon and if it stresses him, it will lower his immune system making him prone to secondary infections.

It appears I will be moving soon. Not far, in the same area. I could probably have my tanks set up again within 2 hrs of tearing them down. I was wondering if there was any suggestion on how to handle the move or precautions I should take? I will be moving 17 males, 8 females, 1 unsexed juvenile, 5 guppys, 2 cory cats, and around 20 6 week old fry. I plan on getting zip lock bags and a cooler or two as needed. The adults I know will be bagged separately of course, but should I bag the fry separately or a couple to each bag or what?

I think it is ok to have the corys in there from the start. If I'm correct they won't eat the live fry, but can help clean up the dead fry and extra food. I added cory cats to my fry tank when I moved them to their 29 gallon grow out tank.

Can I use aquarium salt and epsome salt in the same aquarium at the same time? (He's a pretty sick fishy)

Hey everyone!

What's the difference between the nitrogen cycle and the aquarium cycle? Are they the same thing?

Do you have to clean and quarantine live plants before putting them into your tank? How do you clean/quarantine live plants?

Quick question: the nitrates in my tank are at 20 ppm. I also just learned that the lights in my tank are 15 watt incandescent, and that I need fluorescent. Could this be causing my plants to suffer, and therefore be causing the nitrates to not be absorbed properly?

Is the solution to my high nitrates a simple change in lighting, along with continuing regular water changes?

Is a filter supposed to have bubbling water behind the media or a stream of bubbles rising from the air inlet port? Also, is the water supposed to be a steady stream or is it supposed to swell with every gush?

First time using a filter and want to make sure that it is in proper working order before adding fish...
