Are white oak leaves or red oak leaves better to use in your tanks?

I find white oaks, give off a cloudy white blurry, red will give a slightly darker hue...I prefer red over white, but also prefer chestnut, as it has the most desirable results IMO.... but no matter which you use, make sure they are dried out completely!

Check out my oak leaves thread...

I have a 3 gallon tank. If I do 100% Water changes every 3 days Should I rinse out the gravel every time?

With a 3 gallon you can probably get away with doing 100% changes once a week (with rinsing the gravel) and then another 50% change mid-week.

You might want to look up cycling. If you get a filter and cycle your tank you would only have to do weekly water changes (25-50%).

Question: How should I get rid of ammonia in my tank? For some reason I had a high count this week (.5-1 ppm). I remember somewhere someone was talking about a chemical or something that converted it, is that suggested?

A: I use chems that reduce it. Seems to work great for me (well, my fish)


Q: When my new betta came in, he had a bit of fin damage. Is there anything I can do to help him grow them back?

Just clean water should do the trick. I use aquarium salt sometimes if its severe, but From what you said it does sound too bad.
