I am so jealous of your tank!! :o

Drax will LOVE his new home! Go ahead and put him in, it's better than the vase! Just be sure to acclimate him first! :)

The Temps were the same. The Tank Actually slightly warmer.

I feel REALLY bad though that plant from the vase... since it's roots are cut it doesn't reach down far and when Drax tries to go to it the current from the Filter carries him off... so first Question... HOW DO I BUFFER THAT FILTER!

Somewhere on this forum there is a guide for how to do it with a water bottle? I'd search for that with the forums search function...

Hmm or a Sponge... is that any kind of sponge? As for the water bottle....... Would love more detail on that.

I have the Dreaded 100 Penguin Filter people were mentioning. Hmmm I'll tinker around and see what I discover

Here is a picture of the Tank now Cycling for the next 24hrs... Can't I just put him in now!!!!! UGH The water is at 80F the water treated MEH!

If the Water is clean! Why can't I just put him in! *Flails*





Tank looks amazing, nicely played! Your betta Drax has been through a lot in his relative short stay with you. The initial Popeye was a sign of stress but he wanted to live! He is lucky to have found a good owner such as yourself!!

Before you put him in try to please cycle it! I reccomend this because than you don't have to do any 100% water changes, though than again your Betta is currently residing in a samll tank.... If there is a filter and your going to use it cycle! There are threads on here explaining how to. One time, I tried a filter in my 2.5 gallon tank and continued regular water changes and the ammonia levels shot to high levels! I removed the filter....

He's got a pretty big tank though, I don't think anything would spike super suddenly if he tests the water everyday... And Drax's eye will just get worse in that cold dirty vase... 2.5 gallons are notoriously hard to cycle, anything 3 gallons or less is actually very difficult to maintain. The bigger the tank, the easier to cycle!
