The heater is already at its lowest point. I can't lower it any more.

And I have a lid with a VERY tiny feeding hole and it's on the opposit side of the heater, so I don't think he could get out. But I saw a little leaf thing that has a suction cup and it has a leaf attached to it so that a betta can rest on it. Can't remember the name of it, though. But we're going to Petsmart on Sunday for Mr. Frodo's training class. Maybe I could pick it up when I go.

Sorry I'm not responding very well. I'm trying to help make dinner the best I can without burning anything. XD

So do you think I should get a betta hammock?

What kind of light do I need for the plants in my 5G (never wanting to cycle) tank? I know it's a K number but I can't find it on the big boards.

Actually, I've heard that there's usually a tip of metal on end of the stem of the leaf that isn't covered by plastic, so it rusts and causes a problem. Here's a DIY if you wanted to do it yourself really easily!

Well, it depends, things like sponge filters are just bubblers inside a sponge. They work because water is drawn through the sponge as the air bubbles up from inside of it, or something like that. So, if there's even some small filter media along with the bubbler, techincally one could call it that. If you cycle the tank with that and have enough media to grow good bacteria, then only once a week should be fine...

My friend noticed that the suction cups on my heater have a weird jelly type thing growing on them. not sure what it is, is this normal?

it kind of looks like white/clear jelly on top of it, but its nowhere else. i do 25-40% water changes every other day and it's filtered. Also kept at a constant 78F.

I have a question!!
Ok so lately I have been hearing a lot about the whole garlic thing. Like how do you give your bettas garlic. how long do you soak their pellets.

How often does one change the water in a filtered 5g tank?
