So you don't ever clean out the poop on the bottom at all? Just replace what I'd evaporated??

What's your ammonia level? I'm sort of confused as to what you're trying to say, but if you're saying what I think you are, your ammonia level would be pretty high.

Snails poop. Snails create more ammonia than a betta.
A snail means MORE water changes.

What's your ammonia level?

The filter is uncycled & therefore it will not process ammonia.
I suggest you invest in a liquid test kit that includes a test for ammonia because your betta is being exposed to ammonia which is toxic.

It seems established to me plus I have surfaces from cycled tanks.

You really need to change the water. Do a 80% right away! And what does snail poo look like? You need to test it to see if it's cycled, you can't just make it happen. What do you mean surfaces?

But you said you didn't cycle it.

I'm sorry, if you don't want my help I won't give it to you. I'm just trying to help because you can't say it's established without a TEST KIT.

It is cycled As I said the opening of the tank is too narrow and I have to wait tell my mom takes me to the pet store to buy a gravel sucker and I am out of state.

But as soon as I can water change and test the water by taking it too the pet store.

But you said it wasn't cycled! I'm confused... You still have to do the water change. If you don't have a vacuum, use cups!! That's what i did when I didn't have my trusty vacuum.
