It's 2:22 p.m. over here. I'm in the NY time zone, I think. And I'm glad to hear about your fishy!

Just in case in need to do salt treatment, do you keep the fish in the QT for the whole 5 days or whatever, or is it like a "salt bath" where you put the fish in for a matter of minutes?

Also, I was just told by someone, do I need to do more than 33% water changes once a week (gravel siphon), in a 9 Gallon tank with a filter and a few live plants? I currently only have Suzuki in there but I may add some shrimp.

I always wanted to go to NY. I want to go up north in the winter. I miss the snow. I'm from Ohio and haven't seen snow got 5 years. Dx

Hey guys, sorry for not being here. My parents won't let me be on the computer much. Grrr.

I currently own a male betta fish, a female betta fish, two eastern painted turtles, one western painted turtle, one Chinese dwarf hamster, and a whole load of guppies.

@Billy: With just one fishy in that size tank, I think that amount would be fine. Can't help you with the salt stuff, though.

I'm going to New York, and Boston and New England, in the summer holidays. :)

@eaturbyfill Thanks for the advice. I was starting to get worried coz' doing a 50% water change every week would make things difficult.
