We’ve had our 5 gallon tank setup and running for over a year now. (14 months.) When we started this second foray into fishkeeping I had studied and learned and felt much better prepared than our shortlived first attempt. My biggest concern was the small tank and going against the recommendations of keeping Zebra Danios in such a small tank. I had picked them due to most reports indicating that they are fairly hardy and so should survive our early mistakes. I resolved to do more water testing than before and at this point it is at a point where it can run for several weeks between changes. (This is a planted tank and so our nitrate levels never seem to get that high.)

I’ve seen warnings with many fish and plants that are packaged and sold for the home aquarium. They warn about not releasing these plants or fish into the wild. Now, I can see why some people might release a certain fish into a pond because it had a good appetite for mosquitos for instance. But, wouldn’t you think you should check and see if that kind of fish is already native to your area?
