thank you Neil and lion mom. i was under the impression he was black and silver but i never took a closer look until the moment i made my final choice. i dont regret it, i like the color mix on the body and fins. the green stuff is gone now, he has his java moss to replace it. its taken a while but the VT and new DT seem to get used to it. osiris is just chilling in getting used to the .5g.

the same shop had a purple marble but its more of a blue/red combo, they just have alot of marbles.

If I don't have a filter, should I get a pump and airstone? (I have a 2 gallon tank) If I do, what are some really quiet brands?

I have a qq....I have my new guy in water conditioned with bettasafe. I would like to try stresscoat. Do I need to change the water again, or can it be added to the existing water? Would I be over-conditioning it?

You don't need either for a 2g betta tank. Bettas breathe air, using something called a labyrinth organ. The do, however, need a heater. For an unfiltered 2g, do one 50% and one 100% water change weekly.

Thanks. Yeah, I've got a heater... I've got another question, so:
I just got an anacharis from petsmart, and its a bit brown... should I fertilize it? If yes, what's a good brand?

If its browning, its dying. So long as the plant has new shoots, though, its still alive and growing.

Ferts that are good are ones like Aqueon plant food... stay away from Excel, which melts it.

Anything more than .25 ppm is stressful on fish. A good liquid test (like API brand) will give accurate ammonia readings. Don't trust the strips; they're just not very reliable.

QQ: Is there a way on this forum to find threads that I've created or posted in? I'm used to "my posts" "my threads" "new threads" etc. options. I'm not sure if I just can't find the options, or if they don't exist. Thanks for any help.
