0-.25ppm is acceptable, because you cant always keep it at 0, Lionmom! Anything at or above .5ppm is very dangerous, especially when prolonged, and anthing at or above 1ppm will kill your fish.

You dont really "know"...but a good range is 77-80' ideally, though 77-82 is acceptable. Over 79' tends to promote bacterial growth, so we usually say 78' is perfect!

Actually I think the ammonia SHOULD be at zero if you are doing everything properly. Live plants help tremendously with this of course.

Amen to that.

$30 tank + filter.
$25 heater
+ gravel
+ plants
+ more plants because silk is better than plastic for Bettas so I'm told
+about $10 for a syphon for water changes...

+$20 pellets... guess what he doesnt like them
+$20 for some water ager and a few other things

+$10 for blood worms cause he refuses to eat the pellets...

+$50 for a water test kit

+ $3.5 for a snail.

Hopefully thats all for a while... Plus I figure more fish will be cheaper right - I'm over the basic set up costs, I know what I need more or less and there has to be economies of scale right?

Anyhow, should add a happy snap seeing as this is the place for that.
