That's one way to start a siphon, and it does work. Just rinse with mouthwash afterwards. The other, much less fish-mouthy way, is:

I feel like the whole LGBTQAA-etc thing is getting really long. Maybe "not heteronormative" might be a more inclusive, convenient label. :p

I think asexuality is about the safest topic there...

I would PM TheKoiMaiden and ask her to take a look. She has vast knowledge on all things pond-y.

Well, there's Fishchick, and...actually, that's it.

I kid. There are some other breeders out there but they aren't as well known or well-resourced. Certainly there's not much in Canberra. ...

I'm not sure if I'm more jealous of the tanks or the inhabitants. Either way, I'm green.

It's not good practice, but I don't quaratine my plants. I get them from a really reputable source, so I've never had to.

If the bottom is dying, I would chop it off and re-plant the healthy part. It could be that there isn't enouhg fertilisation in the tank - now you have some fish in there, their poop will start...

+1. I could be wrong here, but I also thought dojos preferred cooler temperatures than a betta needs to thrive.

White cloud minnows are also very active, and need a larger footprint in which to swim, just like tetras. Ditto with cories, even the pygmy ones. Yes, they'll survive, maybe even live long and...

They are such active little fish - I agree with Russel. I firmly believe that they need more space (larger footprint) than a 5 gallon provides.

It also depends on the tank size. There's a huge thread on here about their care which (if I recall) recommends a 10 gallon tank so that they can be kept in pairs, as they are social animals and...

What temperature are you at for the tanks? If it's a constant 78+, you won't need heaters. It'd have to be constant, mind, since fluctuating temperatures are a bad thing.

I'm not too familiar with Pokemon - I found a Squirtle card in a crisp packet when I was 10, but I'm pretty sure I traded it for a gel pen or something. Yep, I was a 90s kid. :p

Your tank sounds like it's about 100...

Low to medium light requirements mean anywhere from 1-4 watts of flourescent light per gallon. Daylight just isn't powerful enough.

Ambulia grows like a weed. It should be fine. Expect to see it shooting out little rootlets, though - they will quest down towards the soil. It will absolutely lap up the Flourish.
