yup thats right. with the hob filters,you want to only change one part at a time else risk messing up your cycle. for the internal ones like morado has,well what i do is put an extra filter catridge in fishys tank. that way,there is always an extra cycled.

if you dont have another cycled tank,keep the extra filter or a sponge for a filter in that tank you have,so its ready to go pretty much. just would suck if you have a small tank,cause that would take up extra room.

wow i feel kinda smart,even though i havent had fish for very long haha...

Yes, you ARE pretty smart. lol You've been doing your research, unlike me. lol So where would you put the other filter cartridge? Hang it in the water? Sorry if these are dumb sounding questions. lol

ty! never a dumb question lol. well i turn it so the carbon side is down that way itll stay on the bottom. otherwise it tends to float lol. you can hide it behind a plant or something too if ya dont wanna see an ugly filter sitting in ya tank. doesnt bother me though haha.

So you just put it on the bottom of the tank. That sounds like a great idea. I'm going to have to have a filter if I get one of Kim's baby bettas. I promised her I'd take very good care of it so I'll need a 2 1/2 gallon heated, filtered tank. lol

Is it a bad thing if the fish sees its own reflection occasionally and flares up? My thermometer has a metal plate on the back of it and whenever my Betta swims near it he flares up. Is this stressful to him? Should I cover up the back of the metal or just leave it be?

If hes not doing it ALL the time,then its fine. Two of my male bettas flare at their own reflections,the thermometer,the heater lol. So occasional is fine. If all the time,cover it somehow. Hope that helps!

Yeah, he should be fine. If he's getting really stressed out by it then you could cover it up.
