So I think my kit is broken, either that or the infamous ammonia reading is more difficult than I imagined. I'm getting 0.5 ppm ammonia for tap, conditioned and established cycled tank.

How do you know when it's expired again? My Lot number for ammonia is 84A0311 and 83A0211.

Haven't used any of the other bottles yet, gotta cook dinner soon :P
thank you Mick, if your ammonia kit is broken them mine probably is halfway there. same lot numbers so far ive used betta conditioner with some goldfish conditioner to deal with ammonia. when the betta conditioner runs out i'll get my prime conditioner open for use and get the api master kit to check for nitrites. nutrafin master test kit is a funny thing, it tests for kh, gh, ca and po4. i dont think API has that in its master kit.

I think the last 4 numbers are supposed to be the manufacture date and they're supposed to last something like 3-5 years

How big is your tank? It sometimes gets cloudy during cycling I think. Cleaning the filter was a bad idea, now the bacteria are dead and you have to re-cycle your tank again >_<

Query: Do ladies flare at their reflections? I tried it with Lin just now and she was "flaring" and staring down her reflection >_>

I read somewhere that they do, just not as often and as "showy". But I'm not sure 100%.

Query: do Bettas get used to eachother in a divided tank?

I wanted to try garlic soak pellets for my boys and girls but how do I go about doing it? Is it just as simple as putting them in garlic juice? Do I let it soak up the juice untill they expand or leave it in for a few seconds? Sorry for the stupid question lol

@ francis

It's a bit too warm, but he'll be fine. The max should really be 84• F. Low of course is 76• F try to lower the temp

@Neil: Thanks for your reply, as for your question a lot of people put plants along the divider (or have two dividers and sandwich plants in between) so the fish won't see each other at all.
