no its fine ur doing well helping me. im 14 and i still dont know how to read the water stats but my moms bf tells me its good.he gets it done for me.the tank wasnt really cycled for a long period of time cause its small. and it came with a book and it only had to be cycled or a couple days till the water gets right. and thats what i did and everything was ok with my bettas. and wouldnt the babies die if the water was spiking a little cause they r more sensitive? idk it just seems that way. but now i have 5 with 25 or so fry! im not gonna get anymore just to see if they grow up

ok so my fry are 4 days old and one of them has this wierd color to it. i noticed this last night. i guess it was hiding alot and i didnt see it. it came out to eat and i observed it and i looked at the rest. it is more darker than the rest of the fry. it has these black spots around its body and its stomach is a little dark. does this happen to some ppl?

oh ok. i just saw the most horrific thing! i was feeding my fry when i saw one in the adult side of the tank. it mustve went over. and i was trying to get him but the male guppy got a bite of its tail while it was in the gravel and it shook it and its tail came off and the rest of the body(head and all) was just floating there i was so sad! omg most disguisting thing! i almost cried. i still have 25 or so left and they r 6 days old and growing.

I know that was horrible to witness but its perfectly natural for the fish to do that.
