i'm a average guy, divorced and a parent, i live in an appartment that doesn't allow pets (i,e) dogs cats, so i got some fish, i have a 55gal tank, i was debating on salt, or fresh, went with fresh cuz it seems easyer
When you see signs of stress in your fish, you can then take steps to identify the source of that stress and then to resolve it before it becomes a major issue.
If you're looking for a unique way to stock your new tank, give freshwater shrimp a try.
If your fish is suffering, you may want to consider euthanasia as an option to humanely end his pain.
