well if its not a big tank (under 10 id say) just use a cup to take water out, then do the same and gently add it. that way the plant doesnt get swooshed around with all the water.

This is my little guys favorite food- I scrape the cubes with a fork and small chunks fall off. Odd, but he goes for the bigger pieces first and shakes them to bits until they reach a managable size. One cube lasts several days.

not as long as you let it sit for the appropiate set time. think 24 hours is what is supposed to be safe. 48 if youre doing something major like say...making a tank.

Ok. beacause somthing is making my fish die. I got 2 bettas from petco and both died in 3 day. I have a 3 gallon tank and it took me 4 hours to acclimate. I useed the right amount of seachem prime water conditioner. And I rinsed everything in hot water. What could have happened? I'm stumped.

Oak Leaves

I've been debating whether or not to ask this, or just deal with finding few leaves....I may be overworrying but I've never used them before and I don't want to introduce anything to the tank (If that's possible).
I've collected oak leaves for my tanks, but my question is: Does it matter if there are spots/discoloration or very small light brownish looking fungus on the leaves?
There are fallen leaves EVERYWHERE, but alot of them have what I mentioned about. So if anyone knows about this, please let me know. :D

I try and find nice dried oak leave that are free of anything unknown-if they have different colors or shade on them that look natural to the leaf itself I don't worry so much and use, but if they have any bumps, lumps, fungus or anything like that I don't use them...better safe than sorry

Thank you! I will pick out the better ones. :)

Dew: Maybe they happened to be already sick?
If there was nothing wrong with the water quality, then it might have just been that. Do you have a heater or filter? If so, maybe something broke...?
I hope you can figure out what it was, i'm sorry they died.
