You didn't do a water change for 2 months. If you think that is a responsible 'cycling with fish' then you are incorrect.

I would hate for a novice to read your thread and neglect his/her tank...

I am not sure if I like the hybrids, but you could always breed with a guppy and see what sort of interesting combos you get. Yours don't look very...

Well the filter will help, but you will still have to check your levels often and do quite a few water changes to keep everything in line.

Most plants aren't that crazy about salt. Some fish don't do well with it either. Probably better not to use it unless you are using it to medicate. Also, most of your beneficial bacteria will not be...

Well you could try to fill your tank more so that the water from the hob doesn't splash. I know that as long as I keep my tank topped off, I don't even hear the filter.

But, I agree that...

I think that there is a common misconception that some fish will 'clean' the tank. Yes, they will eat algae etc, but most actually add more waste to the tank in the end. They are great fun to have...

I am a firm believer that fish should have room to swim. Because most fish don't swim up and down I think that the round shape of a biorb is the worst. Basically the longest distance that they can...
