I add the Geltek anti-parasite food to algae wafers. Add a few drops and allow it to soak in, then add a few more drops until you have done 8-10 per wafer. Should work the same for sinking pellets....

Very clean water, Pimafix and Melafix are my fin-regrowth trifecta. They may not grow back to the same size or shape but the fish will be able to get around better.

My brother is an a/c tech and he says that Trane units are very reliable but expensive to fix if they do break down. He said that Lennox units are evil and like to bite.

That doesn't look like a molly. It's a lyretail swordtail. Females will have similar extended fins but lack the large swords on the caudal fin. They can be difficult to breed because the male's...

Two males will probably not get along, especially in half of a 10 gallon tank. You should consider replacing one with a female (or add 2-3 females). They are more territorial in smaller tanks so a...

I insulated three sides of my tank with styrofoam when treating for ich. Smaller tanks have a higher surface area to volume ratio so they lose heat faster. I recommend a 75 or 100 watt for a 10 gal...

Try another thermometer in the qt. 2 degrees is the difference between an ich bonanza and a wiping them out. I always crank up to 88 to be safe.
