I'll only fill out these sections because I feel they are the only necessary ones:
What size is your tank? 3 gallon
What temperature is your tank? 80-82F
Does your tank have a filter? Yes, Tetra Whisper
Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration? No
Is your tank heated? Yes
What tank mates does your betta fish live with? Just himself
How often do you perform a water change? Twice
What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change? 50% (60% this morning, got a little carried away) with a cup, not a gravel vacuum or hose, I just scoop it out on Sundays. 100% on Wednesdays, gravel & decorations are taken out and rinsed in steaming hot water and scrubbed.
What type of additives do you add to the water when you perform a water change? Jungle Start Right
Have you tested your water? If so, what are the following parameters?
So let me start off by telling you I know nothing about water parameters. I know what is good and what isn't good.
I got up early to change Dumbledore's water, as I stated I only do a 50% on Sundays, but today I did a 60%. Yesterday I did water test and my results were:
Nitrate: I don't remember :/
pH: In it's usual area
I had a softball tournament all day, so I couldn't change the water until now and the results were as I stated them in the survey. So, what happened? Why didn't the ammonia go down, but the nitrites go down? I followed the ammonia test to a T (using API Freshwater Master). Is my fish going to be sick? Or is my water cleaning schedule off?
This is why I never went into the science field.
EDIT: I have one live plant in there, too. I don't know if that helps you.
