seriously!!! and i learned the sadness of wal-mart today. my town has 2 walmart and 1 across the river. i go to the one closest to me aka 350 i was impressed with their fish skills, no visible disease no dead fish clean tanks it was perfect! then i go to this new fish store with the ignorant salesman and just about every tank has atleast 2 dead fish, i was like WTF WAL-MART DOES BETTER THAN YOU!?!?!! YOUR A DAMN FISH STORE!! YOUR SUPPOSED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS AND CARE FOR THE FISH!!!!!! then i went to the walmart on the other end of town aka the 26 walmart and most of the fish were dead/dying the tanks were filthy it was awful. honestly the only store ik of in my town that actualy realy cares about their fish is aquarium world and they change the water often feed them well iv never seen a dead or diseased fish and if i did it was because they where getting it out they are wonderful to their fish, the only reason i dont buy all my fish their is because their care comes at a rather high price.

The only pet store close to me that keeps good care of its fish is the Pet Club. I've only seen a dead fish in their tanks once and it was 10 minutes after the store had opened so they didn't even have time to get it out. My Wal-Mart actually takes better care of their fish than my Petsmart. I hate my Petsmart, they had one tank so overcrowded it was unbelievable, I couldn't even see through the tank there were so many tiger barbs in there. There are always dead fish and the guppies I got from there had worms and I returned them.

Did you get a new filter? With a filter, 25-50% once a week. Once it's cycled, you can probably do only 25-35% a week. As you add more fish, you'll want to keep an eye on the ammonia levels to make sure the filter/cycle doesn't crash. With the four cories and one betta in my 10g, I change 35-40% of the water once a week, same with my 10g sorority of 5 girls.

You'll need to get a test kit from a pet store. You can get test strips which are cheaper but some people say they aren't as accurate or you can get a liquid drops kit that is a bit more expensive but you get more uses out of it.

How big are the files? You may need to resize them in a program like photobucket or Adobe.
