I've heard that when crowntail's tails/crowns curl its because the water is to hard. -shrugs- Mine seem to be fine least Oscar's is Blackbird's are starting to curl and poor Solo's fins are tangled since I got him. My water reads at 8.5ish I think? I think ph is equal to hardness vs softness XD

Aww. I'm sorry you lost her. I wonder what made her jump. How is your newest betta doing? Number 16? Guess he's number 15 now that you lost your girl.

8.5 is hiiiiigh. They adjust to it but still, that's high. Mine is 7.4-7.8, can't quite tell the colors apart between the two. But I don't think ph is equal to hardness etc because my water is super soft; we have a water softner and I still have high pH. So maybe the fins curl when the pH is high and water hardness/softness has nothing to do with it?

I get my water directly fromt he ground because I have well water. Lol My house sits on like 30 ft of sand lol. Everyone seems fine and I rather not mess with it but let them all adjust to it.

Probably the best thing. I mean, they will adjust so unless you're trying to breed neon tetras or something, you'll be fine.

She didn't have a lid on her tank? I have to have lids, what with 8 cats. If you don't have a lid, you could always put clingwrap with holes poked in them. I have to do that for my guppies' QT tank.
