This will be an interesting thread. I am currently looking into making an aquaponic fish farm... maybe a few months to get a handle on the legal aspect. and a whole lot of months for seed money;-)

I haven’t had any tank yet. But I got bored one day in Jr H.S. and started perusing the book shelf. Some of the books belonged to my dad, but there were a lot of my grandpa’s books on the shelf. I found a 1940ish book giving detailed instructions on how to set up a fish tank without electricity [no air pump, no water pump to filter poop]. It never crossed my mind that people were making fish tanks before electricity was commonplace. I quickly realized that today this would be a challenge for the most advanced fish-keeper and I wanted to take it on. .... maybe someday.

If any of you have interesting websites on fish supplies, let’s see them

I have never heard of betas needing filters. Bigger tanks than they are often sold in, yes.

I attached onion bag mesh over the filters. 

But the main tank has gotten worse.  Cyanobacterial infection.  Looks like algae but it isn't.  I empties the tank and bleached it twice.  Now I have "Chem Clean" I hope I have that right.  It isn't erythomycin; that would be a last resort.

I've successfully treated a tank for cyanobacterium with tetracycline. It wasn't really that bad, but I had to re-cycle the whole thing.
