My betta fish is not eating. I placed a holiday disk in his tank for food while we were away this weekend.. Just got home and the water was extremely cloudy

I hope you did a big water change right away. The very first thing to do, any time there is a problem with water for fish, is to change at least half of it right away. If you have dip strip tests, test some of the water you change to find out if any readings are too high, but do the change first. If you don't have tests, you should consider getting some, they are the only way to tell if the water has too much ammonia, nitrite or nitrate for fish safety.

Cloudy water often means a bacterial bloom has happened, which isn't always dangerous to the fish. But sometimes they can be the result of a rise in ammonia. All fish produce ammonia as part of their respiration and all organic waste, which is broken down by bacterial action, also produces some ammonia.

For the future, It is MUCH safer to simply not feed your fish if you are going away unless perhaps you are trying to raise valuable fry. But most tanks of fry would also probably survive if their tank is provided with large masses of live mosses and floating plants. These provide minute food resources, infusoria, bacteria, algaes, which fish can pick from the plants. Plants, of course, need enough light so they don't die off.

For sure, unfed fish will get hungry, but healthy fish will not starve to ***** in a short time. Most fish can do fine for a week and I leave mine for two and three weeks if I must and so far, nobody has died. During an emergency, my fish survived for over a month without any attention at all, far from ideal but it could not be avoided. Those fish were living in a heavily planted tank and the plants provided food resources. It also contained shrimp and live scuds the fish could eat, though they didn't eat them all.

Even an unplanted tank, if not over-stocked, should be ok, unfed, for 5-7 days, so long as the fish are all healthy and similarly sized. Tiny fish are likely to be eaten if their tank mates are big enough and hungry. If possible, put the tank lights on a timer so the day/night cycle continues while you are away. Full-time darkness won't kill them but is probably not much fun for them, either.

Fasting fish also helps avoid potentially serious water quality problems that uneaten food and fish wastes may cause in a surprisingly short time. Many keepers fast their fish routinely, one or two days a week, which is thought to mimic the erratic availability of food in the wild.

Having living plants in the tank is very useful; they use up ammonia and nitrates and provide interest, shelter and resting places for the fish. Water changes serve to keep all toxin levels at safe levels. Nitrate should not test over 50 ppm at most, 10-20 is best. Ammonia & nitrite should always be ZERO. If any levels are over these, big water changes are the only remedy.

Any fish's tank, including that of a Betta fish, should have a filter of some kind. If it does, changing 50% of the water weekly is what I have found works out for the best. Filters convert ammonia and nitrite to nitrate, the least toxic

Sadly, it's still popular to keep Betta fish in bowls without filters. It's a long way from ideal, but if water changes are done diligently, the fish may be ok, though it often ends up chopping a year or more from their life span. Without a filter, 50% of the water should be changed THREE times each week. That's a lot more changes than most advisory sites will say, but fresh, clean water is the single best friend any fish will ever have living in captivity. Make sure the fresh water's temp' is within a degree or two of the tank's temp' when you change it. Use a siphon or turkey baster to suck up fish waste from the bottom at least every other week, if not more often. Don't remove the fish when you do these maintenance tasks because that can be a lot more stressful than leaving it in.

Never feed Betta fish any more food than they can consume within a maximum of about ten minutes. Many of them tend to be very slow or picky eaters, so they need more time than most other fish species. Remove any uneaten food after a half an hour.

Soverign Lawn Mower MANUAL B&S engine Model: NG464TR pls

You may be better off looking for a manual for the engine and not the brand of mower. Briggs and Stratton engines are used on many off brands and so the carbs are the same on all the same engine model across brands. As for lever settings I would look at similar model mowers by another brand if you can not get the sovereign line.
As for float level turn the carb upside down and you will see the float will be parallel to the carb base or area the gasket is going to seal the float chamber. There are many vids on youtube to help. I usually see that the float is plastic so you can not change the float height, maybe yours is brass... Seems like your issue could be due to fuel left over a long time in the carb causing it to clog. I have seen how stabilizers may make this worse if the engine is not run at least once a month. I have reason to suspect alot depends on how much alcohol is in the fuel that was used in the first place.

Bosch dishwasher contiuned to flood all night...

It sounds like the float is stuck. Look for a round disk on bottom of dishwasher ( inside) Push it down and lift it up to make sure it is traveling without getting stuck. It is suppose to rise and then cut off water.

Screen shows bottom fine but doesnt show any fish i have changed every setting but nothing works

Fish on the bottom show as a blur, similar to weed, and pelagics show the same, but because of there position they are easy to recognise. Large singe fish like schnapper and sharks tend to show as an upside down V. You will have to use it often and you will eventually, by experience be able to tell whether you are looking at fish or weed.

My MTD Green Machine is filling the engine up with gas. I have had the carb off three times, the needle is free, but it still keeps letting gas into the engine HELP and Thanks

Have you looked at replacing the seat along with the needle? Plus the float may have a hole in it or some crude on it weighing it down. Or the float may be not adjusted right.
Good Day.

Steering Wheel is upside down

You can problably take the wheel off and turn it around. The shaft and wheel are splined. You will need a special puller. Most auto parts stores have tool loaning programs. Just ask for a steering wheel puller.It is a fairly easy job. About a three out of five.
