Hi. Last dechlorinator used was by aquarium pharmaceuticals but I have just bought a bottle of bettasafe by tetra. Testing kit is by aquarium pharmaceuticals. I haven't done enough water changes, which I hate to admit but I'm getting with the program now. Betta is acting fine. Active and eating ok. Spits out the pellets but likes the brine shrimp but I can only find it frozen. Water temp is showing between 75 to 79 degrees.
Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to cycle the tank properly before putting my betta in. He was in a smaller tank and I couldn't find a heater for the tank size and he was getting lethargic.
