I'll take some pics on Friday as I'm going to have to buy some more sand, the plants keep floating away on me but I noticed that if I heaped up a bit more sand they would stay put. The first plant is not looking good, so I'm back to e-bay to get a light today. I have a feeling this plant might not make it through my learning process but lets hope I can pull it together in time.
I got my testing kit today and tested my water and it's all good.. yay. PH is 7.4-7.6 I tested using a low PH and high PH and got 7.6 for the high and 7.4 for the low so I'd say the water is 7.6. From what I've read that's cool for a betta?
Anyway.. water conditions.. check. (And I did feel a little like a scientist this morning with all the test tubes haha) Not looking forward to yet another whole tank empty on Friday though. Will still only do a 50% water change but I have to sort out this plant thing. I'm half thinking of putting Electro in the other tank to treat him for fin rot (just in case) while all this is happening. I have another rock.. that I will sterilise.. and put that in as well. I'm thinking if I'm doing a trip to the pet store anyway to get sand I might get another sword plant, those things are COOL in the tank. I love the look of them.
So this is an expensive hobby? Sure feels like it at the moment!
