    How do baby fish.... fish?

    How do baby fish know how to do everything as soon as they are born? Like how do they know how to run away from a hand, know what food is and how to eat it, and know how to use their flippers?

    Help with Chemicals!

    Hello! How on earth does one fix their alkalinity without increasing their PH as well? Just a little bit of background: My tap water has a PH of at least an 8, so whenever I do water changes, I get a PH spike. To fix this, I am using acid buffer immediately after each water change to get the...

    I created a mini-cycle :(

    I just made a stupid mistake and replaced my filter media with a new one, and now my nitrites are increasing. Do I just do constant water changes until the nitrifying bacteria is built back up in my filter?
