How exactly do you put nylons around the intake of a filter? And how do you baffle a waterfall style filter? A sponge?

To entertain myself and Watson I drew some stuff on the outside of his tank with dry eraser marker, and just as I was doing so I thought, 'I wonder if this will get into the plastic and then into the water?' His tank is an old plastic container that you buy salad in, do you think the dry eraser marker could get into the water?

You have your fish in THIS?:

Is he in QT? Or is it some sort of monstrously large salad container O_O

I wouldn't recommend using it AT ALL. I believe that it is a 5 or 6-recyclable material, it's generally not safe for repeated use.

However, I apologize in advance if I am mistaken >_>

So having established that my girl has eggs and not bloat, how long will she be carrying them? I've only had her about three weeks; I think I noticed the egg-belly about two weeks ago.

Not specifically, its much taller, to where it can hold 1 gallon and he is in QT in it.

...But I'll check the number right now, I don't want something happening to Watson.

Edit: *Phew* Its a 1. Is it safe for me to continue the QT in it, or should I find another container? Watson's out of it and in a cup, so he's safe for the time being.

Here's what it looks like:

When doing a 25% water change, do you leave your fish in his tank? Can he be in there when I add the water conditioner?

Talking

Hehe, now Watson is surfing around in the ten gallon tank! (Well, no full ten gallons yet, I've got 3 gallons in there. ) So my questions have easily been solved!

@Hazel: Wow that is the biggest container I've seen XD! A 1 should be fine, however I don't recommend putting a heater in it >_<... I'm glad he's feeling better!

@walle: It is fine to leave him in there during partial water changes. However you should add the conditioner to the water BEFORE you put the water into the tank he's in.
