I have a question on water changes. When you do a water change, do you just put regular water right back in? or should i put water conditioner in it first or how should i do that?

hi
nope you should be good to go straight off,once your conditioner
is in.i would however be aware of temperature though, if there
is too much difference you can shock your fish,
some of us drop the temp of the new water to encourage our
corydora catfish to spawn.

ok, so i buried the bubble wand this morning. Im not going to lie, it came unstuck from the side, lol.

ok, so now there are fewer but bigger bubbles. Does that matter? I mean, obviously the rocks are going to restrict it a little, but i just wanna make sure im not harming health for astetichs.

don't worry about the size of the bubbles. :)
at a later stage you could always change to air stones,they can sit on top
of the gravel,and be hidden by decor.

I was looking around at fish to get an idea. What do you guys think about fish combinations?

I really wanna get a red finned shark but i dont know if its going to get too big for my 40gal. Any thoughts on what i should be looking into? I wanna make sure i get plenty of research time in.
