This is the first plant i have bought ,but i guess you are right about the culture thing because on the label it says guaranteed to be free of snails ,pests and diseases.

Thanks Aokashi i will be keeping an eye on it,my fish had or maybe still has fin rot but not sure i gave him the salt treatment for 9 days as OFL suggested and i am using IAL,i came across one of your posts that you said your fish had fin rot and was healing very slowly because of hard water,could this be the case for my me ,as i also live in Queens.OFL did ask me if hard water but i had no test kit for that.

Thanks at least now i know the water is soft here ,but why is your water hard is it the plumbing or something else.I just want to make sure i don't have hard water because i don't see much improvement with my betta yet,i am trying to avoid using meds.

I keep it harder for the invertebrates...anddd i havent done a water change for two months *blush*
but the fish is happy and obviously doesnt care much about how his fins is. So Ive decided it doesnt matter too much...
