I've heard of the garlic thing before. Never personally tried it.

Set up a birthing tank for my platys, just need a divider, and made a sponge/gravel filter. Fed blanched zucchini to my fish today. Watching it disappear before my eyes. My loaches r going crazy!

Yes. It is often suggested; usually to entice a fish to eat. Some fish foods have garlic in it.

I have a little bit cloudy water right now, maybe get a clarifier.

Betta's old tank had tons of plants just growing loose every where, so he's having an interesting time getting used to the wide open space.

The first night, when I walked by the tank it scared him and he darted into the side of the glass and laid there a bit stunned for awhile, seems to have recovered fine.

Feeding is hard as the water at the top is moving around so much he doesn't really care for that.
I'm glad you have plastic wrap! It's better than nothing!

I put smooth stones on top of the fountain thing and that really helped with the water movement.

Came down to show my cousin and friend my tanks, I'm showing my berried shrimp to my cousin and my friend calls me to the other tank. He says 'Reference(my betta) is missing'. I look all over and realize the poor thing got stuck in this dragons mouth *not picture of him in there, just the only pic of the decoration* I turned the bubbler off and moved the dragon and he shook himself free. It doesn't seen like he's cut or his fins are damaged but he seemed q bit startled. I took a piece of filter sponge and wedged it into the dragons mouth so hit can't get in there anymore. I know that bettas can get wedged in small holes but I really thought he was too big for that space. Hopefully he's still okay.
