Additional Comments on Fish Tank:
Why is it people keep there bettas in such small tanks? I know right! I hate seeing people split tanks to cram as many bettas they can into it with just 2 gallons or so each. Id rather have my one betta living the high life in his own 20 gallon tank.
I had cashiers and floor people at Pet$mart ask me if I had a community tank because I bought water conditioner, a heater, a filter and other assorted basics for a 6 gallon tank for a single betta. One literally told me, “Honey, you don’t need all that for a betta?” Excuse me?
omg really? At my petsmart, those people are crazy for fish and literally tell you every single thing you need. The manager got mad at someone and said to someone “honey, you’re getting a crowntail betta. A fish bowl won’t cut it.” He grabbed a cart from the front and walked it over to her before getting her a 10 gallon fish tank set.
I had one who shredded his tail I moved him into a smaller tank and he stopped it. I wouldn’t go any smaller then a 10ltr though but some people think they’re right and won’t listen to anyone else (not saying anyone on this post). I have one in a 2.5. He will eventually be upgraded to a 10. But I got him at petco and I figured my heated/filtered/live planted clean cycled tank was better then what most people would give him even if it’s a little small. He’s a very happy little guy.
Aquarium tinfoil barb care. Fish tank guide. Most of the time they don’t know better. I didn’t know anything until I joined these groups. I kept my beta in an unheated one gallon. Now he’s being upgraded to a 10 gallon with a heater filter and live plants.It’s honestly the fault of stores not informing customers of the fishes needs. That depends on your opinion of a small tank. I prefer 5g for single bettas. They are easy to maintain but some would say that’s small, I think it’s prefect.
Because people believe that Wild bettas live in shallow rice paddies and dirty puddles in Thailand, the only reason they believe that is because in summer the big, long streams evaporate leaving shallow puddles and that’s when people have found bettas. they really have enormous homes with enough space for them to have their own territories and everything but people haven’t seen them in there because they are in such a large amount of water.
Basically people took a look at the crappy living conditions they have in summer in Thailand and went then we must be able to keep them in tiny prisons and let them suffocate on their own waste because that’s how they live in the wild. People will keep a animal in a size small enough that it can live and grow but fit as many tanks as possible.
I dont know exactly what the right answer is. Has anyone ever done a scientific study to show that a larger tank leads to a longer life? When I had my first betta I had him in an unfiltered non-heated 1.5 gallon tank. I just had zero knowledge about bettas and of course Walmart isn’t going to tell you anything. Once he died I did a lot of research on bettas myself online and that’s when I learned how wrong I was.
So TRUE! During my childhood when I was new to the hobby, thinking that betta are good or they really live on small spaces like plastic cup or a bowl with less than five inches diameter. Then I bought one and create a similar container as petshops sell them. But I put it to larger water bottle(absolutely the worst situation that I gave to my pets). I kept on replacing the water because it gets cloudy over the time- its killing the fish and so had happened. So I agree that it is most of the time due to imitation of which we think what is right because we assume that they know better than an empty but enthusiastic mind- without consultation. Maybe selling fish in some shops are strategically modified, they give wrong information to make their costumers go back and try to buy again and blaming us for not taking good care of betta.
Tinfoil barb care is easy. One of the key misinformative points many are spoonfed is that bettas live in puddles or shallow marshes. The marshlands they live in normally are quite shallow in some parts but they are expensive, and have deep pockets. Also they come from Thailand and Indonesia a lot as well so they’re used to warmer temperatures. Another thing is that most people see bettas in cups at pet stores and the employees are taught to say they can live in a bowl, so they figure they’ll get one. It’s also probably because so many people see bettas as a starter fish. Some like to wedge themselves in to tight spaces have you thought about getting him a log or cocanut that he can hide in near the surface of the water.

The tank was doing really well, but the scaping was destroyed during a disagreement between a chinese Algae eater and myself (More on that in future vlog).
This video was done, ready to upload on November 1, 2018. My mobile device ran out of space and I was deleting old content from it. I had just looked at the 6 or so vlogs I’d sent to YouTube uploader and realized I never published it. This is mostly serious, I have memory issues and time management issues.
I also realized it’s not legal to use songs from other artists. I have worked with garageband and personal and small music production for years. I wanted to use my own recordings for vlogs and that may happen. My phone does not like me sending garageband audio and My laptop cannot run Garageband any longer.
I did a workaround and if I really need to, I can use songs I write on my mobile device for vlogs.
Note: I am in no rush for any milestones as I have nothing to monetize. I will help folks keeping fish and aquariums grow by subin and viewing tho.

Growing up in Tennessee meant trips to the local lakes and rivers on the family ski boat. Spring break was always spent in Hawaii cruising the reefs and forever ingraining memories of the beauty of the ocean on his mind.
Mark’s first tank was the typical goldfish bowl. 1 gallon of water, some multicolored gravel in the bottom, a plastic plant and 1 fish. Seeing his keen interest in fish, his parents quickly upgraded him to a 10 gallon freshwater aquarium. When he turned 9, his father announced it was time to upgrade to “the real thing” – a 75 gallon saltwater tank.
Jump ahead 22 years, and Mark maintains a 375 gallon tank and mrsaltwatertank.com, a website dedicated to taking the confusion out of setting up and maintaining a saltwater tank.
Mark also is the creator and star of Mr. Saltwater Tank TV a web-based TV show that not only entertains audiences, but educates them as well.
Since starting Mr. Saltwater Tank TV in 2010, Mark has created over 260 Mr. Saltwater Tank TV episodes resulting in over 6,200,000 views worldwide. The show has attracted 22,000+ YouTube subscribers and 12,500 + fans on Facebook.
In addition to Mr. Saltwater Tank TV, Mark has authored and co-authored 6 books on including The No-Nonsense Guide to Setting Up A Saltwater Tank Volume One and Volume Two, The Ultimate Guide to Saltwater Tank Cruise Control, The No-Nonsense Guide to Preventing and Curing Nuisance Algae Outbreaks, The No-Nonsense Guide to Marine Fish Diseases, Treatments and Quarantine, and Pre-Travel Planning and Preparation: A Pocket Guide for Saltwater Tank Owners His writing also includes 5 authored or co-authored articles for international magazines such as Tropical Fish Hobbyist and Marine Habitat Magazine.
Public appearances include speaking at major fish trade shows – The Marine Aquarium Conference Of North America (2012, 2013, and 2016), Marine Aquarium Expo (2011-2013) and the Seattle Marine Aquarium Expo and ReefStock
Mark also takes Mr. Saltwater Tank TV on the road as he’s covered major saltwater aquarium trade shows including Marine Aquarium Expo (MAX), Seattle Marine Aquarium Expo (SEAMAX), Marine Aquarium Conference of North America (MACNA), and Reefstock
When he isn’t traveling or working, Mark maintains a 235 gallon mixed reef tank and spends time with his wife, 4 yr old son and his pug named Bart.

Views:30798|Rating:4.89|View Time:10:16Minutes|Likes:618|Dislikes:14 This is part 4 of The Ultimate Guide to your First Aquarium and in this episode we’re gonna set up our tank.
Once you have designated the perfect spot for your tank it’s time to get started.
Just like I’ve been talking about through the whole series this is a 55 gallon aquarium. This is a spare tank I had sitting around, it’s obviously a used aquarium so this is a good representation of what you would be working with if you were to buy your tank off of a craigslist add or something like that.
The first thing you want to do is add your substrate. Make sure it covers the entire bottom surface of your tank. There is no rule as to how much substrate to lay down but just remember the more you have, the more you have to clean.
After laying down the substrate I like to set my decorations in the tank. It’s just easier to do it without the water, plus it’s easier to see everything. For this example I’m just gonna place a couple different decorations around, a nice hunk of driftwood and a little stone house. You can go as far with this as you want. This is an opportunity for you to be artistic and make the tank your own little art project so have fun with this part and take your time.
Next I’m gonna start placing the equipment starting with the aristone. Personally I like to have the aristone on the opposite end of the tank from the filter. This will help with water movement and give it a really cool effect with all of the bubbles. Keeping it away from the filter will keep the bubbles from being sucked up into the filter which could effect the filters efficiency and it’ll keep the bubbles from getting thrown all around your tank.
Don’t worry about plugging any of these pieces of equipment yet, powering them up without them being full or submerged in water can actually ruin the equipment so we’ll wait to plug these things in until the tank is full.
Now it’s time to place the filter. The filter I’m installing onto this 55 gallon aquarium is a marineland emperor 400. This filter could be looked at as a bit overkill for this size tank but remember from episode 3, you really don’t wanna go cheap when it comes to your filter. This filter hangs on the back of the aquarium and the intake tube extends down into the tank. I like to extend the intake tube down to about an inch from the bottom of the tank to get maximum water flow and to help pull the fish waste from the tank as it’s dropping to the bottom.
(As you can see, my little decorative rock formation was in the way of the filter intake tube, this is why it’s nice to not have water in it yet)
Next is the placement of the heater. The location of your heater is pretty important, you want it in an area where there is allot of water movement so that nice warm water gets spread around throughout the tank and doesn’t just warm up one stagnant area. Here I’m placing it directly above the aristone. The bubbles from the airstone will not only circulate the heated water but they’ll also help to hid the heater at the same time.
Now it’s time to filler up! I’m using a garden hose to fill the tank. Notice I placed a bowl on the bottom of the tank. This is just to help keep the substrate and decorations in place while it’s filling up. You can use the bowl if you’re filling up your tank using buckets too, just dump the water into the bowl.
While the tank is filling up this is a great time to add your water conditioners and any other chemicals like live bacteria. Be sure to read the instructions on the products to ensure propper dosing of these products.
While the tank continues to fill I can now place the lids and lights. I’m using 2 24” aquarium hoods with the standard aquarium lights. These are similar to what you might find in one of those starter kits I talked about in episode 3.
Notice I’m also filling up the filter itself, remember a filter running with no water in it can burn up the motor so filling it up will kick start things and help to prolong the life of the filter.
and now its time to plug everything in and start it up. You’ll notice a small loom of cloudy water coming from my filter, this isn’t something you’ll see with a new filter but as I said earlier this is a used one so it’s spitting out all of the stuff that has built up in it through use.
And that’s it, we want to take a step back, make sure everything is functioning properly with the filter making sure if you’re using filters that have bio wheels that both wheels are spinning and making sure the heater is set to the propper temp for the fish you want to keep and your done.
Next week we’re gonna talk about The cycling process which is one of the most important parts of this whole thing so you’ll definitely want to subscribe to this channel so you don’t miss that episode. Thank you so much for watching and I look forward to talking to you again next week!

We meet up with Andy, owner and operator who shares with us what fresh seafood is all about. Typically fish is pulled from the water, sold to large-scale brokers and re-sold to fresh fish distributors like Newport Fish Co. The distributors then sell to restaurants, grocery stores, hotels etc. Newport Fish Co has been in business since 1978 and is one of the Bay Area’s leading suppliers of fresh fish. When you dine at a four or five star restaurant, more than likely you’re eating fresh seafood sold by Newport Fish Co.

Shopping for fresh whole fish isn’t complicated. A fresh fish should look and smell fresh. Bones are usually the excuse people use to avoid whole fish. They shouldn’t be a deterrent, though. You’ve eaten chicken off the bone since you were a kid. Granted, the chicken bones are larger, but they pose chocking hazards as well. There are several ways in which you can debone your fish and below we will describe the two most common and easiest methods. If you are cutting your fish into fillets, as with larger types of fish, and in particular, flat fish, the fish is cut in a way in which the flesh is easily removed from the bones and you are left with several boneless portions of fish. Get more grilling and smoking tips and tricks from:
This method is used if you want to stuff or butterfly the fish with the head and tail removed. For small round fish, the insides must first be removed. This is done by making a slit along the belly and removing the guts. Once the fish has been cleaned and rinsed, take the fish, place it on a clean board and cut off the head. Do this by slicing the head just behind the gills and cut in a big and swift stroke.
Do the same at the tail end and remove the tail. Also remove the fins at the same time. Next, open the fish out like a book, and place it flat down with the skin facing upwards. With your fingers, press down along the backbone, in order to loosen it.
Turn the fish over, so that the skin is touching the board and then try to lift the whole of the backbone and rib cage out in one piece with one hand, whilst gently freeing the bones with a thin, sharp knife with the other. Hold the knife parallel to the board, sliding the knife underneath the bones. Once the backbone and rib cage have been removed, check for any stray bones and remove them with a pair of tweezers.
Rinse the fish under cold running water and then dry with some kitchen towels. The fish may then be folded back into its original shape and filled with stuffing or left open and cooked under the grill..
