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.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom

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!

To my poor guppies, I'll miss you guys. Rest in peace little buddies.

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

Matilda & Philippe & Limu the Lab

47 gallon (180 litre) colisa tank
106 gallon (400 litre) Gourami tank
317 gallon (1200 litre) angelfish tank

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.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty
