    When to switch off

    Salt water as in reef tank? Fish only? Live rock and sand? Marine aquariums are far more complicated than the typical freshwater one. The ammount of light yours needs depends on what type of lighting you have, what type of corals you are keeping (if any), how far up they are on your live rock...

    DIY Betta barracks

    The UV sterilizer is a KEY componenent. When you have all these fish sharing the same water, if a single one comes down with a disease, they ALL will. The UV sterilizer is there to help eliminate the spread of disease. I dont think people should ever consider using any type of central filtration...

    No problems with them. I've shipped them all over the country and have yet to have a problem. In my experince, they are actually one of the more hardy species (especially when compared to guppies) and as such do very well under stressful conditions.

    dead: 1 blue ram 2 yellow rams

    Rams have a tendancy to die for no reason. Test the water. If it looks good, theres nothing you can really do. Find another fish is your best choice.....

    i think its wild

    No it is not an endler ;) EDIT: The pattern on the top fin gives away away. There is no such pattern found in any strain of pure endler. It is either a wild-type guppy, or a guppy-endler hybird.

    All my angels breed in ph 7.6 water. I doubt your ph is a problem, as long as its stable. First, are you sure you have a proven pair? They have bred before? Together? If you are SURE you've got a proven pair, just follow a good conditioning schedule. Feed thme twice daily with lots of high...
