Pew, is there a way to tell if it's sealed? I'm not a very crafty artsy-fartsy person, so I don't know how to tell. It's glossy, but I know that probably doesn't mean anything other than it's glossy. lol

Oh, and I got it from a second-hand shop.

I dunno, even if it were sealed, I question it! I worry, too, about its quality- even if sealed, if used with a cruddy gloss coat, it may leech :c

I cant tell nor really say if its sealed, but I do seriously suggest maybe not having it in there, just out of nervousness :c

Im busy currently rescaping my goldies home and as soon as Im happy with the plants (99% happy just waiting on a few more items like hairgrass, glosso and corkscrew vallis) I will be taking my goldies out and they will be rehomed via my LFS. We have already started the search for some beautiful females, locally, so that I can put them in once the goldies are gone. My plan is to remove the goldies, do a water change, let the tank run for a week with a new heater in it, then pick up the girls.

Wyvern, if you let it run for a week with no fish won't it lose the cycle?

Lion Mom nope it wont, its an established tank and im just taking the fish out not the filter medium and gravel. Im just doing it for the off chance that my supplier wont get the girls I want on time, so im giving it a week. If I havent gotten the girls by then, my one boy will be living in it for a bit.

The other reason is I want to do a good gravel vac before adding new fish, goldies are horrible piggies and messy, so I want to make triple sure I get all the gunk out.

The bacteria wont have noms, though D:

And Rell, please try making a thread in "Compatibility" for better answers tot hat question, this is a place to post photos of your fish tanks!

While making the thread, please tell us how big the tank is, if you have live plants, if its filtered, how often the water changes are, and if the betta is the only inhabitant thus far.

I am aware that you're new, yes. However, it's not my job nor apparently obvious that you dont know how to use forums/create your own thread, so please dont be rude.

You go into the "compatibility" section:
http://www.bettafish.com/forumdisplay.php?f=102

A little ways down from the top on the left, there is a blue button with a Plus (+) sigh that says "New Thread". Click it, and you will begin to create a new thread. Assign it a title (One that tells what the issue is), like "Tankmates for a (what ever sized tank you have)?", and then ask your question, with the above for details for the best responses.

Submit it, and you're finished. You can check if someone has replied in your "User CP (control panel)".

As a heads up, 2.5 gallons is the minimum for tank mates, and then, only a snail is recommended. Good luck with your thread.

Pewpewpew - consider it like a fishless cycle, Ill be adding little bits of crushed food to keep it going.

Ive done it this way before and found I have less hassles with new fish.
