it's city supply, not filtered, streight from the tap. I can get filtered from the fridge though, you think it would be better?
I do treat it but...
I use strips, I'm getting some liquid but don't have it yet.
ammonia- was 0 to <0.2 leaning closer to the 0.2, I did a fifty change though.
nitrate- JUST A TINY BIT, barely above 0
PH- 5.5 I think.... 5.5 is the lowets on the strip though so I'm not positive....
don't have a 24 hour one but I'll try it, I'm guessing you mean on water left out?
that's for the tank I haven't checked the source.
I do run it 24/7 except for water changes, he seemed to get worse when I turned it back on >< it's baffled though. \
yeah, it was almost 0.2 so I went ahead and did it, should I wait till it hits 0.2 though?
I left it a bit down ( the water ) and as soon as I added it back to the top and turned on the filter he started again.
they are all aquatic but have some brown on them, the swords were growing really well, not sure if they stopped or not though, and can't tell if the moneywort ever rooted. I've been trying to remove and pull off dead leaves
he's OBSESSIVELY surfing the glass right now? 0-o I can't make him stop or distract him x-x
it's the light in the hood of the tank, it heats the water up alittle, i usually turn it on at ten in the morning and turn it off around six or seven as it starts to get dark, which would change to lower hours as it got dark earlier...
I'm using BettaSafe for treatment and I added some BettaWater which I hadn't added when it started, I'm also going to try some Prime but have to check for advice on adding direct to tank. I use the bettasafe as instructed, seven drops per gallon, and I add a little distilled sometimes in case I over-used to even if out, but not much,
flashing? you mean flaring? on gills, he doesn't have pinecone scales, and his gills turn reddish brown around the edges in an outline, but it's on the FACE not the inside th egills, ( though they're red too ) and someone told me their betta does this when annoyed....
he does yawn lots or blows a bubble but doesn't use it just shuts his mouth again, or something.
his fins were more clamped but I don't think so anymore , maybe a little left, this was like this from the cup though so I can't tell what's new or old :/
he doesn't hide form me, and he eats fine, he looks at the glass like he's dazed though, and is obsessively glass surfing like I said,
he was darting down a lot int the tank, dragging himself on the gravel, placing himself head first in the plants, but now he's just obsessively glass surfing 0-o
before he started this he was just kindof floating lazily;
he used to dart alot through the tank enjoying it ><
it's getting hard to distract him;
when he stops glass surfing he sits in the gravel and stares at his reflection..
the temp is supposed to be 78 ( pre set 50 watt heater )
but the thermo says it's lower, and I think the thermo is just off ( it's not digital )
I stuck a water jug beside him on that wall and he stopped while I stood there but when I walked away he started again .-." is he just bored maybe? now he's shoving himself across the floor again, and now he's given up and scooted away, and now he's just floating with this frustrated look.... maybe he's bored? wants something to watch? he's surfing again.... >.< different spot.
I think he's figured out it's his reflection, silly as it sounds.... he used to admire it in the tank floor where there was no gravel...
he isn't responding the way he used to either, I waved several things in front of him he used to love to follow and he won't pay attention to them at all....
