So here's what I have, though the exact dates may be off. I started my fish tank on 10/10/07. I bought 2 fish that passed...

    Cycling A Freshwater Aquarium Here's a common scenario: Someone buys a new tank and goes out the next day and buys fish. They die within weeks and the person assumes they just "aren't good with fish" and gives up. It doesn't have to be that way. The reason those fish probably died was because...

    I bought a 2 gallon tank at Christmastime because I wanted to have a beta at my office. The tank came with an "undergravel filter" (turned out to be just a tube with an airstone in it that pushed stuff underneath a platic panel at the bottom). I purchased an appropriate size heater to add to...
