is there a treatment program for this disease???? :D
The disease is its own treatment. hen you end up spending 12 hours every weekend cleaning fish tanks, the disease has run its course. At that point, you either put together a fish room with some central filtration so that multiple tanks can have their water changed at once, or you stop adding tanks.

Thank you very much for all the advice. Unfortunately I can only have a 20g according to my school. Bummer. But I am going to a fancy fish person today to ask a bunch of questions. Are there any you can think of that I should ask? I've covered vacuuming, fish per gallon, live plants, fungus, and some water change stuff. Can anybody think of anything else? I am a newby fish keeper so pretty much anything u can think of will help!! Thank you!

If you are getting a 30g tank, which is a 36"wx18"hx12"d tank, why not get a 47g? The price difference is minimal and you have the extra height.

Think the disease is called TAS (Tank Acquisition Syndrome). I joined this forum hoping to be cured, but it only got worse.

Albinowife, to answer ure question : Yes!
30g still seems a bit small....go for a 50g and don't look back

TAS is a mild form of MTS. I don't know exactly where the line is, but I think I've crossed it. lol

Herefishy, with 400 and some odd tanks I think you've crossed it a number of times! lol

Albinowife, if you can only get a 20 gallon I'd go for a 20 long.
