High pH: 7.4
Ammonia: 0 ppm

Ok so I gave her over an hour with slowly adding in the water to get use to the tank (she's so tiny compared to the 5 gallon!!) Right now she's exploring every single millimeter of her tank and is defiantly enjoying the surrounding :)

I assume she's breathing heavy from swimming around so much but should I be worried?? I added AQ salt a few days ago before adding her and you guys see the testing results. Right now she's fastly swimming into the edge like she's wants more (which I can imagine she does want more) is that normal? I also would love to wait for a sale on the 20 long gallon tanks at petco so I could get one IF my mom said yes :)

Why did you add salt? And how much did you add?

Bettas are sensitive to salt. Too much can harm them.

If you used tap water, it will contain enough 'salt' for her. You do not need to add any more, unless you're treating a specific condition (such as fin rot, etc). And even then, she should only be in it for a few days.
