What are your parameters? Ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. It is sounding like a bacterial bloom which is normal, and I am assuming you are didn't do a fishless cycle. The only worrying thing is the...

Really if you do a fishless cycle and a couple of good water changes should get rid of it. Windex isn't the worst thing ever. My kids decided to help me clean one day and they got windex in my tanks!...

Just like Sara said skirts and corys need bumped up, and the skirts are very nippy but tend to be less so in the the presence of a good size school.

Gouramis and angels are not going to be good companions. Both have a tendency for aggression, and can be very territorial. Your tank size doesn't give enough room for them both to have their own...

It doesn't look particularly worrying. It is most likely a mold or fungus of some type. It may have been the rescape of the tank when you took the UGF out. I had it on one of my biowheels once, but I...

Don't use chemicals to mess with your pH. Seriously you are looking at a recipe for disaster on that. You are better off to have consistent parameters. If it is really important to do it, you would...

I have heard that bettas and Angels are not a good combo. The betta may see the angels as another betta and attack them. Neither are fast swimmers. 4 angels in a 38 also sounds like a heavy bio load...

I wouldn't recommend any fish in a tank that small. I know they sell them for fish like bettas. But even those should have at least a 5 gallon tank. Maybe you could turn it into a shrimp tank? easy...
