What could be the cause of a pH spike in my aquarium?
My tap water is about 7.2, but when I checked my tank today (did a 100% change yesterday) it was at 8.0!!!

Shadyr - I have Beast here at work in his 2.5 gal. He does find over the weekends. I was really worried the first few weekends too.


My question: What is the best way to cycle a planted 10 gallon? Fishless cycle first and then add plants or put the plants in from the begining? Or even gradually adding more and more plants?

SwaggDaddy - You will need a filter if you plan on cycleing the 10 gallon. If you don't cycle it, you will need to do more water changes including 100% changes.

Sorry, this should read ,"....hot water CAN actually cook them as they thaw".

This is probably not the best place to ask... but when you have a fish in treatment (fin rot in this case) do you still fast for one day?

I'm going to perform my first partial water change tomorrow...

I'm going to put the extra replacement water in 1 gallon containers. Do i have to use the same water conditioner i used for my 10 gallon tank? its 5ml per 10 gallon and its a hassle trying to break down the dosage for a gallon. So can I use the betta bowl water conditioner?

I'd suggest just buying a 1ml syringe. They are available from most chemists. Then you could do the perfect dosage of 0.5ml per gallon. I use one for my Prime and get a neat 0.1ml per gallon. :)
