Heck, I grew up swimming in local lakes and the ocean. It's all poo water! Thanks for the swallow free directions though. Hehehe. Mine gets air pockets in the tube cause it's an extender, so I don't always have a choice with the sucking in of water. I hate deep tanks. :P

JK, I've had murkiness after just setting up a tank, although it's usually the second day. It cleared up on it's own with the filter running. If you're Mom's fed up with the water changes just wait it out for a day or two.

I solemnly swear that I will never, ever, never never ever ever get an extender for my gravel vac.

Thanks for the advice. I went ahead and removed the gravel and rinsed it quickly again, and I'll wait for the water to filter though and clear up soon. :)

Hi Miss W!

I, too, am a teacher (of middle school). Make sure you rinse everything with hot water, but NOT SOAP! Soap is toxic for fish.

I know at my school they turn the heat off at night and on the weekends. I am not sure if they do this at your school or not, but if they do I would not advise keeping a betta there. You would need to have a heater plugged in at all times. If you can't keep a heater plugged in, and the heat does go off at certain parts of the week, please consider not having a betta in your room. Daily transportation of the betta would stress him out as well.

Pantyhose looks so ugly on my filter, as does the water bottle baffle! D: ... I probably sound like a snob, but half of my goal in setting up tanks is to have it look aestetically pleasing, and those aren't working. Is there any nicer way (or at least not that obvious) to slow the flow of water from a filter?
