I am sorry if this has already been asked but I am new and there are 113 pages lol. How high can they jump? I have a 10 gallon tank and I left the water about 3 inches low. He hasn't tried to jump but I can't stop worrying. I am getting a lid today (had to wait until payday..I am THAT broke). I have only had him a couple of days

What I would do, until you get a lid, put a piece of Saran wrap/plastic wrap across the top of the tank. Poke some air holes in it so it's not airtight. Then you will know he can't jump out of the water. :)

(And don't apologize for asking. We'd rather you ask and get help than have something happen to your fish!)

Should I rinse Catpapta leaves off in hot water before putting them in my betta's tank?

The recommendation I got when I bought my plants was to soak them for 24 hours in untreated water and the chlorine will get anything extra. However, a tiny snail somehow snuck through and lived 3 weeks in my tank before I ever saw it (and fished it out) so check your plants carefully.

I doubt there'd be anything nasty on dried catapta (indian almond) leaves. Rinsing I'd assume is optional, though I'm pretty sure you can just toss one into the tank.

Okay, I didn't realize that was IAL. I thought it was a plant. Go with JK's advice.
