Me neither, also two questions.

A. I've been hearing all sorts of things about what temp to keep the anacharis at. Some say anything above 75*f is to hot. Will it be ok in my betta tank?

B. can I rinse and clean some of the old gravel and mix it in with the new gravel, or more, will the good bacteria transpher?

If 75 degrees is too hot for those, you shouldn't keep them with a betta because my minimum for bettas is 76.

You can mix it, I'm not sure if it will transfer as I'm unexperienced with cycles. I don't think it would though since I believe it's in the filters too.

Subscribed! Sorry, I'm not really experienced enough in cycles to help. :( However, if I remember correctly, some bacteria does grow on other surfaces beyond what's in the filter. I would imagine gravel counts, unless it's possible for it to be too deep. Cleaning it may wash away the bacteria though, I think. Also, I have no idea if whatever bacteria on the old gravel would be enough to help at all. That's my thoughts, but again, I may be totally wrong.

Yes but MOST of the bacteria grows in the filter. It is in the gravel too, but it is mostly in the filter, but I'd just recycle the tank.

I have Anacharis at 78 and it seems to be fine.

That's just what some websites are saying, others say that it's ok and their max is over 82

Okay, I'm inexperienced with those, I was basing it off of the temperature she gave me. If they can live in the high 70s then yes, they should be fine.

Gaaa, this is frustration, I just red on one aquarium website it cannot go above 75* and then a minute latter that it thrives into the hight 80*s. But based on the majority of what I have found and other people who have it in their tanks on this forum, I think it will be ok
