Personal Crap

Aquarium Woes

So back a couple months ago, we got a 26 gallon bowed-front aquarium on a wooden stand. Really cool. I’d always had 10 gallon tanks growing up and a lot of the care rules, etc. came back to me from that. But I never remember having to have so many chemicals as we do now. Nor do I remember having so many fish deaths. We’ve currently got 6 neon tetras (oh wait, make that five. One was stuck to the filter intake this morning!!), 1 blue gourami, 1 opaline gourami, 1 flame gourami and 3 madagascar rainbows (2 now. One was floating this morning). What the heck?
