Yes; they are TINY fish, though; none even close to 2". I honestly thought 1/2 would be dead by now! So far, I've only lost 1.
I tested agin later; my nitrites are 0ppm but nitrate was up 5.0ppm.
I changed another 5 or so gal of water, and changed the charcoal part of my 3-stage filter (the sponge needs changing, the other part was changed last week- you can't change all 3 at once, according to the filter directions). I added a bit of "Nite-Out" & "Microbe-Lift Special Blend".
This AM, I had another betta down. She is listing & bloated.
In the 29 gallon I have 10 bettas, 13 otos, & 4 synodontis= 27 fish, but not 27
inches of fish, but add a few Ramshorn snails & I am pushing the bioload.
I've got to attend my ailing fish- she's in a hospital tank, then do another liquid test.
4 bettas: Butch, 3-year-old violet male PK EE & 3 girls in a 30 gal sorority. I do not name the girls anymore! 1/2 of them die within a month.
30 gal: 9 Oto cats, 4 Ocellifer cats. Inverts: Cherry shrimp & 2 assasin snails.
10 gal.: Butch, his 5 oto cats, 3 assasin snails, and a few snails the assassins haven't caught.
