We found number 4! We have no idea where he was, but he was just sitting in one of our "hiding places" as if he was there the whole time. Little bugger.

Maybe for the first couple of weeks, just to be safe, but I think one 50% change per week ought to be good. But you can always test your nitrates to make sure. If they're creeping above 20 by mid-week, then yeah, a second change might be necessary.

And, glad to hear you found #4!

I like having a surprise like that-ya know then I get to "meet" my new pets most of my fish were chosen that way-except one who "dove" in the net with a fish i was getting-so i got 2 because the poor lady had spent like 10 minutes to get the first fish and i didn't want to bother her to get the little guy out

Okay, these algae wafers are a mess. Is there a cleaner food I can feed them? It said that it doesn't cloud the water, but I'd have to strongly disagree.

I did buy Hikari which I really like that brand. I might have to get another brand though.
I wonder if the zucchini or cucumber is as messy as the wafers.
I did get one of those gravel vacuums today, it helps a lot.

Fresh zucchini isn't messy at all. It'll last for days before it starts to fall apart (not that you'd wanna leave it in there that long).
I usually blanch my zucchini in boiling water for, like, 30 seconds, and then put it in cold water to stop the cooking (and to cool it off before I give it to the fish). I've tried microwaving, but it's so easy to overcook it that way. Once I put an overcooked piece in the tank, and when I went to take it out the next day, it just dissolved into zucchini mush in my hand. --It was gross
But very lightly cooked zucchini is good for at least 24 hours. I usually drop mine in at night and take it out in the morning. Spinach and kale are good too, and not messy.
