Okay, here is what I heard are signs of being near to birth:
-anti social and staying near heater, about 1-2 days before birth
-box shaped means hours before birth
-heavy breathing means closer to birth
-dark gravid spot turning even darker hours before birth

Am I missing anything? Is any of my info wrong?

You could also use moss, or guppy grass. Along with protection, the moss has some natural food for fry, I believe it's called infusoria. Good luck!

The short for aquaponics is growing plants in The fish water

This,makes the plants grow faster cleans your tank and also gives your herbs or other plants to cook with

what you will need:
water pump
rubber hose that fits the pump
any plastic container around 1/2 - 1 gallon
something you can set the container on that will fit on top of your tank


Tools-
a knife
electrical tape


If you want to add the filter and grow bed then you will need another contain that is larger and some sponge - nylon scrub pads- and some small rocks and seeds

I will make a DIY video later tonight after I write a paper

I think I might just buy mine, there's too much of a chance I'll screw something up with that.

Dude you can do it I'll unload a video it costs like maybe 15 max with the pump

And if you grow some herbs for your mom she would be more willing to buy you more tanks and stuff maybe you will research all about it and start growing a lot outside this summer

You said your 15 right? Your mom would love it if you grow her herbs to cook with

I think I could do that, I might stick with buying one if it gets too tough though.
