I purchased a window screen that I wanted to use to make a divider from. It is made out of fiberglass. Is it safe to use in the tank? I also got plastic poster holders to use for sides so no metal is going into the tank.

Does anyone know anything about strobe lights? My residence hall hasn't had a fire alarm since the triple (we had three fire alarms in six hours in one night. Same person started all three alarms), but we got our microwaves back. It's unlikely this time of the year, but in the case that a fire alarm happens, would Octavius be okay with a strobe light flashing in a dark room for approximately 45 minutes to an hour for an accident, and more if there's an actual fire or if someone set off firecrackers?

Or would it be better to cover his tank with a jacket if that happens?

I have an algae-like substance growing on my new plant bulb. Is this dangerous or normal?

bettaheart: well, I have no idea. I'm guessing it improves as they grow.

GMD: I guess he's fine, though you could cover it if you feel it'd stress him.

Deadmemories: describe it please. If it's white and mold like, just wipe it off. If it's brown or green and sludge like, it should be fine so long as the plant is actually growing.

Can Betta's live in a tank with just decoration's and hide's..no plant's?

It's a test I wanna do, Bypass is still ending up with a shredded tail. I covered the filter outake and intake, now I'm thinking of taking out his plant's for a week to see.
He has silk plant's but the stem's are plastic, and he like's to swim throught them..so maybe they are the culprit.

Of course they can. Of course, he may miss them, but he certainly won't die without them. If it's not the plants, you might want to try and see if it is tail biting.

Another quick question! My new tank for my new unnamed female has a filter. There are a lot of bubbles along the top - I'm thinking the current is a bit strong. Should I consider fitting a sponge in the mouth?
