A heater will help him a lot and insure the water temperatures are constant and tropical temps, and depending on the size of the tank, the heater might not be too much money.

My betta can't/doesn't use it's left pectoral fin (the ones on the side). im not 100% sure if it's injured, but it looks rather thin/half the size of the fins on my crowntail...not sure if i should use meds or just see if it heals in his tank?

sherleelee: that's a fine filter :) Spong filters are very very gentle and will be a good filter for cycling your tank.

Drg: you might want to just keep and eye on it and keep his water extra clean. If it doesn't get better in a few days, make a thread in the disease and emergency subforum.

Okay, I had forgotten while trying to set up a cycle to check ph weekly. JK, thanks for the reminder to check it. That's the problem with setting up my cycle. I also know now that I have to use the cold tap and not the hot tap in my kitchen because the hot gives too high a ph.

So now do I need to empty the tank, rinse everything (gravel and castle) and refill with a new chunk of shrimp?

How do i keep a fish from jumping? Terra has gotten into the habit of jumping during feeding time and has cleared the edge of the tank twice so far. My question is how do i stop her from doing this?

Ifeed her quickly, preferably before she jumps XD... Unfortunately I'm not sure what else you can do apart from be quicker. I guess maybe if you scooped her up in a cup for feeding time that'd lessen her liability to jump? I'm not really sure, just play around with her and try and find something that works.

QQ, I was a doofus and left my plants out in dry air for about 2 hours. They are wilty to say the least, and my javafern is bordering on crispy O_o ... now that they're in water, will they make it?

I need hideouts for two of my Bettas, I do not get paid for about two weeks. So I was wondering, I have seen people on here use coffee mugs as caves...What mugs are safe to use? All I have are ones with Coca-Cola logos on the side, will that chip off?
Thanks. :)
