Noob here in need of help. I purchased an API freshwater master test kit and performed my first test and need to know what I need to do to get my water where it needs to be. I have a 10 gallon filtered tank with one betta. I did my first water change on Tuesday a week after putting him into his new cycled tank. I was using test strips before I put him in the tank and everything looked great. Pets mart also tested the water before I bought him and said everything was good.
Here are my results 3 days after a 25% water change with prime.
FYI, I have never let any food hit the gravel for more than 1 minute. He is very good about eating everything I give him and he seems very healthy and active. He has actually been more frisky than usual the last few days. He is flaring his fins alot and he even nips my fingers when I test the water. I don't think he is being aggressive to me with his flaring since he never flares his gills or body. He's a fearless little guy.
