Sure - you can buy automatic fish food feeders to dispense food while you aren't there. Depending on your budget you can buy dispensers that give out food according to electronic timers, and release different types of foods at different times.

Try another wall connection or your wire connection, as well as making sure nothing is wet around the connections, and ultimately nothing is wrong with the entire lighting system.

Most likely due to moisture and condensation created by the water temperature and the room temperature. You need to dry up the bulb and its connection... or simply buy a new bulb!

They come from eggs that were hidden within the aquatic vegetation you placed in the aquarium that your fish use to discharge them away from being viewed or easily reached.

Much too late to help, I'm sure, but the cheapest fix would likely be to add a simple tap switch.When the tap switch is turned off, it cuts the power off and the light will go out. A tap switch is simply an outlet with a switch fitted. Plug the tap switch into the wall, plug the aquarium light into the tap switch and you're set. They're cheap at places like Home Depot, likely half the price of the replacement switch from Hagen, who makes Fluval. Also a great way to make it easy to turn filters on and off without having to pull the cord from the outlet.

"How to assemble? - Fish"???
Umm, you take the body and stick the marked fins on the sides, top, and back at the appropriate slots then install the batteries and drop it in the tank.

What is "It"? If you mean how do you install the filter, hang it over the back of the tank, install the suction tube on the right side, install the filter elements, and fill up the filter with tank water using a clean cup. Put the top on and plug it in. It should gurgle a bit until the excess air is purged and should run quietly after that.

A clogged intake or impeller will still try to suck in water, but will only make noise and actually do nothing, where as a filter with a clogged motor won't turn on at all. The solution to a clogged motor is fairly simple. Just open up the filter, take it apart piece by piece, and unclog it. If you need to, you can use your hands, use lightly compressed air, or if the motor itself is water proof, just blast some water through the motor.

One of the most common problems that people experience with their fish tank filters is that there is a loss of suction, or no suction at all. You see, fish tank filters use something called an impeller that is motor operate. This impeller serves to suck water from your fish tank into the intake tube, through the filter media, and back out the other side in the form of perfectly clean water.

Another pretty serious problem that many people experience with their fish tank filters is that there is an improper flow rate. Now, this is not actually a problem with the filter itself, but it does affect your fish. You see, different fish need different water flow rates, with some liking a heavy flow to swim against and some which can't handle fast flowing water and just get swept around the tank.

Whatever the case may be and whatever the solution to your fish tank filter problem is, you need to take care of it as soon as possible. Without proper filtration your water will suffer from a buildup of waste, chemicals, and toxins, plus it won't be properly oxygenated either, all things which can rather quickly lead to the unfortunate demise of your fish.

That would depend on the plant. Some plants can be transplanted at any time.

Bacteria in fish tank ?
Bacteria is normal . breaks down ammonia from fish into nitrate.
Nitrate is harmful and requires a water change unless you pump the water through plants google aquaponics.
Algae in fish tank ? buy water snails put in tank

Aquarium air pump allows for better humidification in conjunction with perlite, and lava rocks. It also provides automatic aeration pushing the C02 up and out the FAE holes in the PMP lid, so there is no need for misting or fanning.

I think, a sponge filter is for you - simple, cheap and effective.
It provides mechanical and biological filtration, once the sponge has grown bacterial colonies. Filters come in a variety of sizes shapes, and pore sizes to adapt them to an almost filtration need. Sponges give excellent results in ponds, saltwater, and freshwater. They can be used as an addition to another filter, such as a canister filter, or as the only source of aquarium filtration - https://great-filter.com/best-sponge-filter/

If it connected to a public water course, yes you do.

If it is totally on your land and spring fed, no you don't, as it is fully yours and on private property.

Best thing to do is phone your local Department of Natural Resources.

In my opinion, power filters are the best. They are easy to maintain and are also quite economical. The most common style of power filter hangs on the back of your tank. A siphon will pull water from the tank, eliminating any bacteria and returning filtered water back into the aquarium.
