Yes, I've noticed from some of the other threads that she is definatley the go-to person and alot of people say to PM her when they're having problems.


I have one last question, what should i do with the old tank (which poor general mao) passed in before i get another betta for it? does it ned an entire water change already? (i had done an entire rinse/change on thursday, general mao passed away this morning, his symptoms were showing in his old tank too...)

When you get a Betta get a testing kit. strips tend to be innacurate, so a liquid testing kit is best. API makes a good one. Also, if you want to speed up your cycle you could get live plants.

Aquasafe is also a great conditioner, but many people here use prime because it makes ammonia harmless aswell as fix the other problems.

One more thing. Fish are of course super sensative to water quality, so you should wash your hands before they go in the tank because they could be contaminated as OFL said.

What brand of a heater is it? Maybe it's a brand known for malfunctioning. Good luck with your new Betta when you get him/her!

It is a Marineland OEM aquarium heater, i believe. Good or bad?
