Some of you know that I recently picked up a new betta, even though I'm currently out of town. For safekeeping until I go back home, I put him in a spare, clean ten gallon tank with a heater and treated his water with Prime.
The water has been in the tank just over twenty four hours now, and it's already green. The tank is not
near a window or in the sunlight. The light on the tank is nothing special, and actually quite dim. The tank is bare-bottom with only a few fake plants for him to hide in, and those plants were cleaned before using them. I do not have a filter running right now, because I don't have the proper media for it. Besides the Prime, I have not added anything to the water.
Since I'm out of town, and wasn't expecting to get a betta while traveling, I do not have a test kit with me. Does anyone have any idea what has turned my water green so quickly? I plan on doing a partial water change in the morning, since I don't know if this is safe for him. I'm a little concerned...
