That's why distilled water isn't suitable. It has NO salt in it.

But drinking water (tap water) has a small amount of dissolved salt, so it's fine "as is."

She's a very pretty girl!

Thank you :D these aren't that good (in my opinion) because I keep my room some what dim so my flash was over working to get the picture >_< I'll have plenty more soon :D

My dream is to educate the world about animals and show them that they are just as important as us

5 gallon with Socrates
20 gallon long with 2 new boys (divided)
10 gallon with Ariel
2.5 with Maximus

She continues to explore :) and I cannot wait to get her an even bigger tank WITH tank mates :D

And I like Maybellin (I just found out that's a makeup company but oh well) or Anna Bell

Yeah :) my other boy at home is named Socrates and he's a big and beautiful (and lively) boy :)

I really love Anna Bell or Maybellin, what do you think?

That would make a ton of sense! Thank you for explaining that to me :D

thank you!! I think all of my boys before and after were very Handsome but for once I actually got a betta that was healthy (although there were a few boys who really needed a home but I told my mom I'd only have one tank :(

Question about cycling. Lets say I got my 10 gallon from home (or bought a 15 or 20 gallon) could I transfer my filter (plus another sponge filter since mine is meant for 10 gallons or less) to those tank and still have them cycled or would I just have to start from scratch? And in transporting her back and forth, can I manage to keep my tank cycle going or would it just be ruined?
