Most likely the other test kit was testing for total ammonia. Total ammonia includes both free (NH3) and ionic (NH4+) ammonia. The Ammonia Alert™only measure free ammonia because that is the harmful form. Ionic ammonia cannot harm your fish. However, as pH rises, a greater and greater percentage of the total ammonia will be converted from ionic ammonia to free ammonia, so knowledge of total ammonia is also important.

Thanks all - Dragon IS a handsome fellow if I do say so myself!!! :)

I don't normally advocate going as small as 2 gallons, but in this case, I just couldn't resist. Like I said, I clean it 3 times a week even if it IS filtered!!!!

Aww, thanks. He's my favorite too! He's got a new game. He sits still in the plants and turn invisible. Always takes me a while to see him...

Do your water changes guys ;) Today I did my weekly water chnage with gravel vac and this is what I pulled out of my 10 gal community tank. You dont want THIS rotting in your tank do you? DO YOU?

Sheesh, no wonder the orange tree I dump this on looks like it's on steroids (or at least compared to the others).


LOL

This isn't for Bettas but if my Oscar passes away it will be It's a 55 gallon currently being renovated "christmas gift" for my Oscar you could say. I've worked hard on emptying the tank, removing the gravel, cleaning the sand, filling the tank and doing water changes to clear it up.
It looks blue in the pic, but its just a little cloudy.

^ without flash ^

^ with flash ^

I will post pics of my future 30gallon Betta home soon I hope.
