How do you fix algae growth in an aquarium?

Is your tank by a window? If so you may want to move it away. High light levels combined with nutrients (nitrates and phosphates) will cause algae, at least in normal freshwater aquariums.

The causes for algae in saltwater are identical, but the algaes are of different types.

The solution to algae issues is quite simple; reduce the amount of light, and the amount of nutrients in the water, and the algae will not be able to survive. Some algae in an aquarium is normal; in fact, it is impossible not to have algae. There are many different kinds of fish and invertebrates that can help control algae by eating it. In freshwater, I recommend dwarf plecos, otto catfish, snails, and algae eating shrimp. In freshwater, herbivorous fish such as tangs and angelfish can help, but the best control there are various types of snails.

What does a torpid goldfish look like?

When fish go torpid, they stop feeding and slow body processes (almost like a kind of hibernation). They don't move much (or at all) and basically rest until the water warms up. This only happens when water temperatures reach near the freezing point. Most temperatures just above freezing, they will continue to feed on a limited and much less frequent basis, but still limit their movements.

Why would rain cause the AC on a 2003 Sienna to shut off?

Some A/c compressors today have a speed sensor mounted somewhere on the compressor.It detects the rpm of the compressor and compares it to engine speed.If there is more than a preset difference between engine rpm and compressor rpm the a/c system will be shut down by the a/c amplifier or computer depending on what type of controls your system uses.If it only happens in the rain it might be something as simple as a wet,slipping drive belt.

Tighten or replace drive belt....

Can you feed sea monkeys to goldfish?

No, the sea monkeys are just genetically altered brine shrimp. Brine shrimp are great for fish, even better live. They're super easy to raise, and not too expensive to get everything going. Just make sure you pick out healthy ones, and drop them into your tank. Great for other fish too if you have them.

How do maggots eat?

Maggots will usually eat dead. Don't worry about them eating you but some cases have been reported about them eating necrotic/dead tissue on a live person. They are important to the world because they eat dead things. They have tiny tiny mouths so it will take them a long time to eat a whole dead rat or bird. They also eat ants-- I saw one chasing an ant in my house!
