I'm working on a weebly site. It's been a work in progress for a few months now, I really just work on it when I find the time haha. I'm still deciding where I want to go with it in quite a few ways, so far it has a store, a blog, a home page (obviously), and then some betta information and info on other fish I keep, among other things.
Oh and a few days ago I learnt from Hallyx that Seachem Prime does not convert ammonia to ammonium, like everyone seems to think and say, it, to quote Hallyx (hope she/he(?) doesn't mind, they explain it better than I ever could) "locks up the ammonia in a molecule Seachem calls Prime/ammonia complex (aminomethanesulfinate). This molecule decays over the next 24 to 48 hours releasing the ammonia back into the water". I found that neat, it's "common knowledge" that prime makes ammonia the less toxic ammonium, but really that's just a myth that started somewhere and was shared by people including myself. Practically, though, I don't think it makes a difference- the plants and bacteria use the ammonia from the molecule and it isn't harmful to the fish either way.
