  1. I've had my tank set up for some time (originally had been home to an aquatic frog): after much fiddling over many months and adjusting with carbonates, I switched the tank to Seachem's regulators system: it's been a very good decision. I also use Seachem's Matrix in my filter. The tank is 10g and I have one 'fancy': I think it's a Fantail, but am not sure. It does not have the 'humpy' appearance of what I understand Ryukins to have (?). I am unable to afford a larger tank at this time; Miss Beatrice has been with us for about 6-8 months and, in general is doing nicely. I think she has only one eye....both her eyes are black adn it's hard to tell. I remember remarking this when I bought her, but clerk assured me it was just her markings. I have no other fish (etc) in-tank with her....although sometday I'd like to get her a 'companion', when I can afford a bigger tank. Advice? I am looking for a general guide to : Ph, GH (KH not really needed since the phosphate-based regulators will throw it compoletley off), temp reange, Ammonia & Nitrite I know to be at zero. Nitrates? Lately, it's been very cold...at the moment it was -3 degrees when I got up and is now 17 degrees outside. Miss Beatrice is acting "off'.....the past few mornings: I thought I'd lost her this morning! I realized tht the room where she is gets to about 60-maybe 62 degrees at night. Thinking this might be too cold (in contrast to what the local fish store claims). I slowly began adding warmer water to the tank during the pwc this morning. I dug out an old heater made for small tanks (75 watts)....installed according to directions, and the tank is now about 72degress. I have it set at the lowest mark possible. Now I'm worried that the tank is too warm, and that it came up to 72 degrees too fast? I also have question re: Nitrates. Winter tends to mess with our tap water, which is our source. Nitrates are showing at about 40-80. I use Prime in our tanks, which I find a terrific product. Should I up the doseage and make small water changes more often (every few days, for instance) in order to bring down the Nitrates? Last question: finding quality food is a problem here. I can not find any of the foods you list locally. I am somewhat on a budget...so advice is appreciated. Thank You!
