How do I put my new female betta in her tank? The opening of the tank is too small for me to float her. Thanks, and I need an answer quick.

Put her in a plastic baggie and float her that way. If the opening is too small to do that, then you need a new tank.

I know bettas like their food soaked in garlic, so I wanted to try it to get one of my females to eat some medicated parasite pellets (I'm assuming they don't taste great so she won't eat them) because she keeps having parasite poops despite the Jungle fizzy tabs.

I bought garlic powder today and was wondering if that was safe to use or if I should have gone for some fresh garlic. I know fresh is best, but I'm limited on funds as of right now.

The garlic powder, as with all of the others in the store, did not list any ingredients so I'm going to assume there isn't anything else in it other than garlic.

I would say mixed with water and soaked its ok... Wouldnt a single clove be enough, and wouldnt it be cheap? :o Im uncertain. Oldfishlady is usually a person who recommends using that garlic stuff, so perhaps ask her if someone aside from myself doesnt offer advice.

Good luck :) And yeah-- external parasite meds dont really work for internal ones :(

does the API liquid master kit have a salicylate test for ammonia?

@Pew3: i saw the white dragonscale at petsmart, it was pretty damn tempting but i resisted. i found a perfect set of greek ruins for my 2.5g right away.

You resisted?!? I wouldve snatched him.

I'm not sure of the test kit, but I know that one of the bottles is corrosive...
