It does. But theyre instructions are based on the assumption it'll be used for a leak in a glass tank. I'm just using it for slate, so it won't hold all that water pressure.

I know you are excited & anxious, but I would still let it sit for the time they tell you to. Better safe than sorry!!!

are IAL the only leaves you can put in a betta's tank or are most leaves safe to put in?
I heard you can get dried oak leaves during the fall when oak trees shed, but don't quote me on it

@Wyvern: ok thanks~!

For the past two weeks I have noticed a weird, what looks like smiley strings of spit, floating around Abacus' tank. They are floating losely and also stuck on the plants and gravel.
This is my first tank without a filter. And the plants are fake.
I have tried and tried but I cannot seem to get rid of the slime strings.
What are they and how do I get rid of them?

What sucks is I cannot seem to get any decent photos of it. You can see it well in person but they disappear in pictures.

I had that too! I think it comes from still water...how big is your tank? How many water changes weekly?

i have a question about wild bettas and the other colours. the wild betta colours are more natural camoflage for obvious reasons. my question is how many of these blue, red, yellow etc colored bettas occur in the wild? i can imagine such colours are natural if they were coral dwelling fish but they're freshwater fish. im guessing most are bred for specific colours.
