Basics to beginning a fish aquarium?
Asked By Frawggy,Last Answer By Fallen At 2011.04,1 Answers

So as some of you've already heard and answered my earlier fish questions, here's the situation...

I only want a Betta fish. I'd give him a nice big tank all to him/herself I think it'd be nice a nice touch to have a mini aquarium on my desktop. I'm researching everything and have researched over and over the basics and the aquarium nitrogen cycle.... researched the facts on owing a betta fish thousands of times...
If I get a tank, it'd have to be around a 3.5 to 5 gallon tank. Correct me if I'm wrong, but these are the necesseties:
-3.5 or 5 gal tank
-Betta fish
-fish flakes AND bloodworms as treat
-API testing

Am I missing something? My brother had fish before but his filter was so noisy. Does anyone know of a fair-priced noiseless filter? And from everything here, cn you make an estimate of how much this will probably all cost? Easy 10 points :/?

What fish should I get for my 20 gallon aquarium?
Asked By Elenore Mari,Last Answer By Colby At 2011.04,1 Answers

I'm cycling a 20 gallon aquarium at the moment. Once it is done cycling, I'm planning to get 3 zebra danios, and 3 glofish. (They are the same fish, just the glofish's color is genetically altered, so they'll school). So, what fish you guys think would get along(and look good) with these fish without overstocking my tank? Thanks! All answers are loved!

My aquarium fish are not active and some are dying. Help?
Asked By l,Last Answer By Mr. Wizard At 2011.04,1 Answers

I tested the pH levels, nitrate, nitrite, Hardness, Alkalinity, and ammonia levels and all are normal. Some of my fish have died and the others are not active. They just stay in one spot and occasionally move around. I feed them twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening. Have any ideas why this is happening? Thanks.

What would be a good starter fish for a 5 gallon aquarium?
Asked By -,Last Answer By lemonnpuff At 2010.01,1 Answers

I am disappointed about the fish I bought last week. I have a 5 gallon tank. I bought 3 dwarf gourami fish with the advice of a worker at a petstore. Sadly 1 is dead and 1 is about dead. I have one left. I am going to take him back since now I have heard that he will grow to big for this tank. Grrr I have read how to cycle my aquarium and plan on doing so for a few weeks. I don't want alot of fish but just a couple and I just want to know what I should get for this small aquarium? I like the tropical fish best. Should I add any salt to the aquarium when having these type of fish?

If whales and dolphins have an underwater language to communicate, then do my aquarium fish also?
Asked By Chris M,Last Answer By Escuerdo At 2010.01,1 Answers

It is well known that whales and dolphins communicate with each other by an audible sonar (noise) across great distances in the water. My question is, do my fish in my aquarium have this ability on a smaller scale yet not discovered by humans, or have they not this capacity. And if not, at what point down the fish family does this "communication" cease to exist? Your references would be very helpful, if there are any. Or just explain your logic. Thanks.
