Minnows that eat mosquitoes.

I have a 2 gallon clear plastic fish tank. I just put a couple of water hyacinths in along with the tiny aquatic snails they harbored and a handful of compost for nutrients. I also want to add a few small fish that will feed on mosquitoes. What would be the best commonly-available species, or mix of species? This is all just for fun, by the way. I live new Atlanta, Georgia.

Gold barb massacre.

So this afternoon I added ten gold barbs to my thirty gallon community tank and now (+8 hours) they are all dead. None of my other fish are predatory or aggressive, and certainly not enough so to take out ten new additions in eight hours, and my water chemistry seemed to be compatible. What happened?

That's a Long Swim for a Beta Fish

Beta Fish Question. My daughter just got a new Beta fish. The first in over a year since Swaba #3 died. My wife took the latest fish and put it a glass vase that is about 8 inches square and 2 feet high. He mostly sits on the bottom as beta fish seem to do. I told my wife that 2 feet is a long way to swim to eat and that he might require a gulp of air every once in a while. Does anyone here think that 2 feet is too far to swim for a beta and that his days are numbered, more so than usual, in his tower of glass.

Making the most of frozen salmon

I just ordered some wild Alaskan salmon online, partially in hopes of being able to prepare sushi for myself at home. But the fish feels a little spongy when I eat it raw after defrosting it. Is this because of how long it's been frozen? Is there any way to revitalize fish that has been frozen for a period of months? [more inside]

There's something fishy going on over there

Feeling disenchanted with tuna salad, but want to keep eating fish for lunch every day. What are you best suggestions for easy, portable lunches that feature fish as a prominent ingredient? These need to be fully assembled before work and need to either taste good cold (ideal) or reheat in a microwave really well.

Safe to add food coloring to betta's water?

I am wondering if there is any risk to a betta fish at all of adding some food coloring to his water? We have been pulling minor pranks on a coworker and many on Fridays have revolved around a fish and I am thinking adding a couple of drops to make a light tinge to the water would be good if it posed no risk to the fish. Everything I've googled looks like it is fine, but really trying to cover my bases in advance.

Can anyone recommend a Japanese restaurant with equally strong sushi and non-sushi menus for a sushi first-timer?

NYC-foodie-filter: A friend of mine wants to try sushi for the very first time. The game plan is to order a couple of pieces as an appetizer and either proceed to a full entree if she enjoys it or bail and order something different if it turns out that raw fish is not to her liking. Can anyone recommend a Japanese restaurant with equally strong sushi and non-sushi menus for this culinary adventure? I'd prefer a place in Manhattan or Queens, easily accessible from Midtown Manhattan and reasonably priced. Not too fancy. [more inside]
