If both the shrimp and the wafers don't work out, il get the freeze-dried. Thanks for ur suggestion. I noticed the reef tank thing at the bottom of ur reply, where do u get the reef, and how much does it cost? I too, have a 10g tank and want to add the more natural feel 2 it. Thanks for everything. :P
Yup, SW (reef is more expensive), is a ton of money. For my 10G, I am at least $350 in, if not $400+.

You get stuff for the reef online or at a good LFS (I ordered most of my stuff on Dr Foster and Smith). My rock, sand, salt, water, and livestock is all from LFS.

My RTBS ate flakes that sank to the bottom, algae off of plants/decor, but mostly algae wafers. That is, before the poor guy lept out of the water during a water change when I wasn't looking and dried himself out.

These fish are notorious jumpers so keep yours well-covered and watch out during tank maintainence!

Ill see what i can do.

Right now, my RTBS is still a juvi and is only 2.5 cm long. I guess this gives me some time to persuade my parents to get a bigger tank (i'm gunning for a 55g). Thanks for the info. Thanks to u 2 iambatman, i keep a tights lid and ask my mom 2 watch it when I change the water and stuff. How much time do you guys think it'll take for my RTBS to fully grow? That's how much time i think i have to get a bigger tank. Thanks, guys.

Anyone with a free 30+ tank? (i'll trade my 10g if you want)

Just wondering, does anyone have a free tank i can have for my Red Tailed Shark? I have a 10 gallon tank right now and I'll be more than happy to trade for a 30+ gallon tank. It sounds a bit unreasonable, but if anyone doesn't want theirs, has to give it away, or needs more room for other things, i'm here. Thanks.

Where are you located at? Also, check eBay. 55 gallon and less that are bare go pretty cheap.

No joke about that. I got a 29gal setup with top, lighting, filtration, heater, airpump, and more for $30. Just today someone posted a FREE 12g eclipse system. Craigslist pretty much owns in this hobby.

My status

Right now ther aren't many gud sales going on wher i live. I live in louisville, KY, and all the deals are like over $600 and they r for thing i can't even fit in my apt., but thanks for ur help, il keep an eye on the website and see what comes up. I went on fishlore.com and it said to have a RTBS in 10 gal or larger, same applied 2 my danios and platies. Is this an accurate estimate? And my RTBS still isn't eating anything, I've tried regular fish flakes, sinking shrimp pellets, and algae wafers. I no that most suggestions now wud be to try freeze-dried, but my parents r gonna say no because that's 2 much fish food and money. It seems that the RTBS stil goes after the regular algae, it acts like an algae eater. I also discovered 2 snails in my tank, they hav spots, i hav no idea wat kind they r, they r 1cm and 5mm rite now, wud they be ok in the tank or shud i remove them? i want to keep them, but i dont no if it'll be a problem or something. Thanks.
