Guys, thank you all for the....thoughts. I will take them into consideration, and try to better my aquarium skills.
By the by, I'm a girl, just so you know....being called he is a tad bit insulting.

Ik how you feel I posted about a 1 gallon tank and ask if a tetra would be okay in it ooohhhhh boy I never herd the end of it. Im new at all this I didn't know. But now I do. Lol. So when I give advice I make sure to not be rude bc there was a time I didn't know anything.

Now that's rude!

You'd be amazed at how often I'm called "dude"..... not like my user name gives away my gender or anything.....

I'm so glad you're sticking with it it is a little frustrating at first, but keeping fish is so much fun, especially livebearers, as you've already found out!

I'm glad. I'm a newbie too! They all were once too! Making mistakes is all apart of learning. Best of luck to you and your fish!
