Adding serpae tetras to my 25 gal tank. BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER. The next day, all my fishes' fins were practically gone and many were murdered. Should've done research first:/

No you don't unless your fighting something. Eg a parasite or a bad fungal attack or a algae bloom like a blue green one

Otherwise you want to stay away from cleaning it other than with a vacuum during wc

My biggest mistake.....putting a bala shark in a 10 gal. Yup, and before the 10 I had two balas in a 3 gallon! This is not a joke! And it was before I discovered AA!

My biggest would be rainbow shark in a 10g. At different times i also had rans, angelfish, tiger barbs, and kissing gourami. I didnt put them in so it wasnt me.

People at the LFS need to stress that these fish need bigger tanks! It's unfortunate because i lost both balas.

That's true, but they really should educate people also. Just think of the countless fish lost to not educating people (beginners)
