How big is the tank? Is there a filter?Is there space for the heater cords when the cover is on the tank completely?If so there's probably enough air getting in.

Bettas are really good jumpers so I think a cover is necessary..Unless you have the water lowered quite a bit. I use a versa top and it has a spot at the back for the filter and heater cord so it allows some air to get in...

OK...I bought stress coat for my guys (fin rot). I was changing the water and used the conditioner as normal. I then realized the Stress Coat bottle said water condition. Do I start fresh? Or can I use Stress Coat and a separate water conditioner?

I'm setting up a NPT, and I can't find soil without fertilizers. Does anyone know any? I'd prefer if you could buy them at Target, Lowes, Home Depot, etc.

You can use both at the same time. Stress coat is water conditioner with a little extra. It's hard to overdose conditioners, so using your normal conditioner I would add in 1/4 - 1/2 of a dose of stress coat. They only need a little bit if it's not being used as the main conditioner.

I was just talking to Gustav, and I think I saw him blink? Do betta fish have eyelids?

How hard is it to start a Betta Sorority? Do you need lots of Betta exprience to have one?

Is my two-inch mossball taking nutrients from my plants. The growth of my anubias and anacharis seems to have slowed some, although I'm not sure I can really tell.

They don't have eyelids.. but they can move their eyes up and down quickly, which sometimes when looking at them looks as if they blink.

Moss balls take nutrients from the annoying algae, not from plants. They are just balls of algae, not plants nor even moss, but cute nonetheless. lol
