Hah, I usually never ask* in this XD

But.

My Lights of America 10w florescant bulb (1 bulb) in my 5 gallons have a 6500K rating. Id say this is good...Is it? I know K rating is more important than wattage, and Id say this little bugger does well.

Whatcha say?

My betta Josh likes to swim in one corner of his tank, and he has a ten gallon! There seems to be nothing special about that corner at all! He is very active and occasionally swims elsewhere, but not often. I don't think he's sick because he looks acts and eats fine. Why does he like that corner?

Sorry for double posting, but it wouldn't let me edit.

Another question: do I need to age water for Bettas?

Nitrates should never be above 20ppm.

I cant really say, though I do know that "young" tanks can be "moody", hah. They do strange things, which is why its good to monitor it.
Don't worry no fish, only a few pond snails and honestly i hope all the spikes kill them off. Stupid moody tank :s

My Betta fish stalks my finger and tries to bite it when ever i put it at the surface of the water. Is that ok? I was thinking it was because Betta Fish are surface eaters and they probably just thought my finger was another flake. Is that correct?

Yes, paws, probably. He'll probably bite it if you let him, mine do. Evil little snots.

,Neil, he may like it because its away from any current, its warm, shady or because he doesnt feel safe and is trying to hide. Make sure you have enough places to hide.
And no. only if you dont use dechlorinator, which you should. Aging for a few days lets the chlorine evaporate naturally. However, any heavy metals and gunk are still there, which dechlorinator removes.

8 would be your minimum, 14 would be your maxiumum

PewPewPew, your lighting is perfect. 2 wpg is a good ammount, and the kelvin is in the right range.
