    Oooh! Where did you find it? Does it cost an arm, a leg, and a kidney?

    Saw some of your posts when I was googling about how to remove brown algae from plant leaves so I thought I'd turn to you for help. The tank is just newly planted (I think you even commented in the thread, lol) and I had hoped more plants would cut down on the vicious brown algae that plagued the previous tank setup. No dice. So now I'm stumped. I really probably shouldn't put otos in there with a full load of fish already, especially as the last batch I had did such a lousy job that I gave them away. Do amano shrimp eat brown algae? I had some ghost shrimp in there previously and they did all right (didn't get eaten). Or ramshorn snails? It seems like nothing I get climbs onto the plants, only the tank walls. Oh, and I know the phosphates are low. Don't know about silicates. :/

    thanks, im not sure that its food grade, its intentional use is for storage, you can buy them at the dollar tree, but i was wondering if i could build a tank out of fiber or plexiglass? you can buy it in sheets about 2/3 of a centimeter thick, i have a design in mind that will allow me to introduce new fish into my sorority without them being able to hurt eachother so i could observe their reactions to her, sort of in an "L" shape. let me know your opinion.

    im just gunna hit you with my list of q's..... just answer what you can. thanks

    1. do i need a lining for the bottem of the tank (sand gravel etc.)
    2. if i cant use the 30 gallon containeris there any low-cost tank i could use ( i saw some 5 gallons for about 20 dollars, and thats a little on the high end for me)
    3. on that mark, if i can use the 30 gallon container, what sort of filtration/heating device would i need to properly controll it? ( i would really prefer not using the container though)
    and fianlly: about soroities, if i have less than 4 female fish in the tank, will the still be agressive?

    It may take him a while to get used to the company. When I first added my girls they chased the cories, tetras and shrimp for a while before settling down, even though they'd been sharing a tank with a ghost knife at the shop.
    Be warned, though, it may take days, or it might not happen at all. :(

    A lot of people have goldfish spawning in tanks, and they spawn like mad in ponds. Koi will spawn sometimes, too, but they generally only do it in mud-bottom ponds. Goldfish are so frisky they'll do it anywhere lol! Would Pascal, Parker, and Penelope be pearlscales? lol!

    I couldn't even imagine having 100 fish! I'd rather have about 10-15 koi that I can easily recognize. I guess that's why I wanted koi over goldfish in a pond; koi are easier to tell apart! :p

    Ponds have a very high startup cost. Let's just say it was my graduation present in lieu of a car... All of my little (well not really) koi babies have names. I've only got 6, and they are all very recognizable. I can actually tell you where most of them came from, too. Some of them are older than one of my cats.
