    Hello there Old Dog! I look forward to hearing more of your wisdom in keeping fish, bettas in particular as I just rec'd one as a gift after my dog passed in early August 2019. Thanks for all your photos and I am in awe of your tanks. Wow!! Amazingly beautiful and so are your fish. I want to learn as much as I can from you and from others on this site. Thank you!

    Sure. Don't completely clean the filter. When you do a water change once a week Take the filter pad out and rinse it in the water you are changing. I would do this 3 or 4 times before replacing the filter pad completely. So every month if needed. Depends on how dirty the filter pad gets. If you have a Bio sponge (not really a sponge but a perforated piece of plastic in front of the filter pad) Never, Never, change that. It contains the beneficial bacteria your tank needs to break down toxic ammonia and nitrite, which produces Nitrate for feeding your plants.
