my betta is in :) :)
got him used to the light. he was already aclimated to the light when i went to pick him up. went into my dark lunch bag for a trip on the metro, the metro wasn't 60 celcius :). i left the lights and windows closed when he came out of the bag. did some water tests 4-8ppm ammonia, 7.0ph and 26 celsius. ive just tossed in a IAL bag in the QT, all thats not matched is the ph yet (7.6). im slowly filling his shipping bag with new water and i'll drop the water level in my 2.5 and leave the heater in the 2.5, its set at 28 celsius. the QT will go in the 2.5g.
lol forgot to mention his condition. hes in good condition, if anything a bit pale but 90% colour is in. fins look good. ive put stress coat (fin repair dose) and prime in the QT along with IAL. he looks active enough given his swimming space and responds to intruding objects in his bag.
now off to do some more acclimating. ph in the bag is now 7.2 and the ammonia is still +4ppm. id like to keep adding new water till ammonia goes to 1ppm or less but it'll take sometime. i have the time to do so but which level pf ph and ammonis can safely drop down fast?
