All is currently well with BettaMax. I wonder how often I should cycle out water from his 7 gallon filtered tank? Any suggestions?

I vist the pet store often. Mostly looking for more items to put in the tank. so far the pickings have been slim in Juneau.

I don;t know anything about cycling but a bubble nest means He's healthy and happy. Some bettas blow nests to prepare for a mate but it doesn't mean he needs one, in fact it is advised not to add a female to the tank spontaneously. It would only end up with a dead fish. I take my nests as compliments that I'm doin a good job :)

Thanks! - I just want to say that having clustered plant together like i do. The fish just loves having it to hide in. Highly recommend it.

Yes, your plant is very carefully placed in and it looks great! I bought this long coiling silk thing for both my tanks and I just drop them in. lol!! The only thing I'm careful is in Ludey's tank- I stacked the flower pots and the IAL to shield some of the natural light that comes in from the window he's in in case he wants to get away from it.

Last night was pretty much BettaMax's first month in his current Bookshelf Freshwater Fish Aquarium. So I did two things.

1. I Took out a little over 2 Gallons of his tank water and replaced it with a fresh 2 gallons that was treated.

2. I replaced his filter insert as it was yellow with grime.

BettaMax seems to have delt with the 2gallon water change like a champ. The only sad part was the lost of his bubble nest.

There will be more bubbles! My boys get upset when I ruin them but they just re-build them.

Well you where right. BettaMax made some new bubbles and he seems like a very happy fish.

I will say this. I changed out about 2.5 gallons of water from the 7 gallon tank on the first of the month and put in a new filter. The filter already looks dirty which bugs me. Maybe it's bad to think this way but I would think a filter would last a month.
