hehe, I don't even remember half of how this even happened but apparently it did XD

I went from 1 boy Betta to roughly 32 Betta's in just about a year's time....that's quite the exponential difference lol

I have some friends from Jersey, but none of them really like fish, or rather they don't know that they like fish yet haha

I miss those two crowntails! I think the male's rays did color up more over time...the tips don't seem to be as lightly colored as in the seller's picture. Regardless, they are going to make some beautiful babies!

Remember that IAL, oak, driftwood, etc may lower ph but it doesn't change the amount of TDS...

Beautiful fish btw.

Is that similar to dissolved organic compounds and stuff or am I thinking of something different? I haven't heard of TDS before.

Uh... Kinda? TDS is the today amount of dissolved solids in the water, like calcium, magnesium, etc.

Okay, so IAL doesn't effect that then? Like if I wanted to test for any of the compounds? Are there things that do effect them?

(Sorry for hijacking the thread, I'm terribly good at doing that >.<)
