I agree, vacume the gravel with every water change and make sure you do not over feed the fish. Many problems can develope by over feeding and not cleaning you tank properly, it's best to get into a good aquarium cleaning habit.

If you just got your tank, your tank is not cycled. Be careful with feedings. Your tank is already at risk and this will complicate things more if you over do it.

True. If food is falling to the bottom and not being eaten, and you see it with fungus (the white cotton stuff), it means you are over-feeding. Feed once daily, only what the fish clean up within a few minutes.

This is where snails are a blessing; they will eat any bits of food you can't see. And help bacteria by breaking it down into smaller bits for the bacteria to break down into nutrients.

I have merged the two threads on the same subject from the same member, so there may be some overlapping posts.
