Re: Plants #11
Hi Fiona

Maybe try an Elodea plant, it's a very common plant but it's supposed to reduce Algae
I have it in my tank and it's doing well without any added fertilizer
I think i also have a floating Pennywort - the fish like a nibble at this one!
I have found with the Aquarium light on for 10 hours a day the plants grow very well and i have little algae with this length of time

Re: Plants #15
My fish all love a treat such as brocolli, cauliflower, (shelled) pea, banana and especailly bits of prawn
All of these are cut very, very small for them
I think they enjoy a bit of variety

Re: Plants #16
Haha! I need to take a picture of Mollie... she sure as heck is really really cute. Mollie was the tiniest one at the pet store, and we chose her.

Re: Plants #18
Came across this
“Good plants for goldfish include Elodea, Vallis, Hygrophila and Ludwigia; single-tailed goldfish will eat them, but fancies won’t.”
