Hi! I was wondering what does the comunity think are the best practices for keeping aquariums while in a family environment. Which safety precautions should we teach children that are too young to manage an aquarium? Or, how are there propper steps to follow if an accident happens like a broken aquarium, flooded aquarium or other hazard that may happen? It would be cool to have a brochure for common situations that may arise and how to propperly manage them. Even how to manage fish species that may harm ecological factors if released in the wild.
About a month ago I purchased some new fish that seemed very healthy at the store. They started to fall apart quickly. Fungal infections along with some wasting. I discovered I had one pack of erythromycin and general cure left in my fish room, so I just dosed what I had. It's a 20 gallon tank so I dosed less than the recommended amount. I didn't do a water change for 3 weeks leaving the meds in there the whole time. They are super healthy now eating 2 times a day and extremely active. I am curious if anyone plays with the doses of their meds. I just worked with what I had and it seemed to cure them up no problem. What are your experiences with medication dosages?
