Rod in El Grove, California, says the Clown Loaches he bought long ago from have grown to be 5" long, never been nocturnal, and are aggressive.
Christopher from Maryland has two 2" Tiger Barbs that have

Sandy has a Betta Fish with bulging eye and wonders what to do?
Nina says her Spotted Plecostomus is lying on the bottom of her aquarium, which has a lot of small Snails. She wonders if the Snails have caused her Pleco to be sick?

An anonymous email says, "
I have 2 oscars in my 55 gallon tank. They are producing eggs all the time but they always eat them. I took the eggs after they were fertalized and placed them into my 20 gallon tank with a air stone and after about 3 days the eggs hatched. I had about 200 wigglers at that time. We covered the filter with panty hose so that the babies would not get sucked into there and they actually started swimming within about 4 days. After they started swimming they all started dying. I have no babies left. Once they started swimming my pet store told me to leave the air stone in and to make flakes into a powder and I did that. I still lost them all. Is the 20 gallon tank to big for them to find food? If flake food powder still to big for them? I could not tell if they were actually eating it or not. Please help me I am tired of losing all these fish. Also how often do Oscars lay eggs? I hope you can help me with this. Thank you so much." Tom and Nevin try to answer all these questions.
Lustar Hydro Sponge II Filter   Lustar Hydro Sponge II Filter
This filter provides both mechanical & biological filtration. Aerobic bacteria colonize the sponge, providing a bacterial substrate to facilitate the nitrogen cycle. In addition, it traps larger particles, mechanically cleaning the water. Good up to a 20 gallon tank. Size: 3" diameter x 10" high, when you add extension it is 11" high. Related items: you will need an air pump, airline tubing & an air stone or just a power head & tubing to run filter. Ideal for filtering aquariums with baby fish such as baby Oscars.
Tannis wants to know how big a snail will his Clown Loaches eat?

Evan from Colorado calls and says he's had problems with his new Marine Aquarium. He thinks his problem is too much nitrite, and he thinks he will get a BIO-Wheel filter to convert the nitrite to nitrate which is not so toxic to fish. Evan agrees that his marine aquarium is way more complicated than his freshwater aquariums. Evan says that Marineland's web site says, "BIO-Wheels are ideal for both freshwater and marine aquariums."
