Is there I good fish supply store online that I can use? I have access to a walmart and a petsense in town and hour drive to petsmart. Neither walmart or petsense have what I need in stock and petsmart is constantly running out of things.

Also, I am still having some problems with algae on a decoration and I was wondering if there is anything I can use to clean it. I have to take it out every week to clean it. And I know Gershwin hates me messing with his environment that often.

Theoretically in a ""tank"" like that, you should be changing 100% of the water EVERY DAY

Yes, daily 100% changes in anything a gallon or less.

Amazon.com and petsmart.com and petco.com are great. Amazon has products from the latter also.
That fish place that pet place is a good seller/store.

As for the algae, your problem likely lies in your lighting. Incandescant bulbs, the yellow y ones, when left on a long time with out natural plants, can spur growth. Take that kind of bulb out if you have it and replace with flouresant, and dont leave on too long! Make sure you aren't allowing excess food in the tank, either. It feeds the algae too!

Also, if you do use it, dont over fertilize.

More good internet fish supply sources that I have used without any problems:

http://www.petmountain.com/category/6/1/fish.html

http://www.fish.com/

http://www.petdiscounters.com/

Be aware that Pet Mountain CAN be a tad slow with shipping, but sometimes they have AWESOME deals!!! :)

Hey guys...is it possible to cremate a fish? I don't really want to randomly put HongBo in the ground somewhere, because I may be moving within the next year and I don't want to leave him behind :(

Instead of cremating, bury him near your fav tree. That way the tree will get the recycled nutrients from his body.
