Just thought I'd update; I removed the driftwood from the tank and the frog was alive and unharmed. Sagat still sometimes stalks and even nips at him but he doesn't seem to be any the worse for it,...

Yeah, I actually went with the intention of trying shrimp and was recommended to try an ADF instead by the shop (which actually was a pretty good call considering. Don't think the shrimp would have...

Well, the spring-load tube thing worked well and I found out where he's been. Big bit of driftwood is actually kinda hollow and he can get under it. So, I waited until the fish was occupied with...

Having similar issues at the minute myself, actually. Just got an ADF on Saturday but I'm not sure he's eaten anything and the betta is getting too much. I have always feed my betta bloodworms with...

Still losing plants, melting and wilting but the algae isn't nearly as bad as it was. Maybe my bio-load is too low to sustain all the plants?

Well, no new plant problems, little bits of algae here and there but nothing too extreme. Personally, I think the tank's the best looking it's ever been right now. Running something like 1/3 RO...

It's a good way to kick-start the cycle but that won't instantly cycle the tank. The majority of the bacteria is in the filter and even if you moved the filter media to the new tank, it's still a...

Depending on how long the wait will be, since the current tank is already cycled and he's used to the water, I think it would be best to keep him in the net until you can get a bigger tank. I'd even...

Yes, you should do a water change if the ammonia is 0.5, nitrite is 0.5 or nitrates are 20. Could you post a picture of the tank? While bacterial bloom is the most common cause, there are others...

Got some more anubias. It's hardy but that first one I put in had started to melt a little bit. Got some API anti-algae at the LFS, carbon's out of the tank, so we'll see how it goes. New light...

So, that hair algae I liked? Yeah, probably should have binned it. All my plants started melting shortly after that. It's gone now but I've lost most of my giant Vallis that was doing so well (had...

I'd wash it and plant it straight away. Don't think there's much that can transfer from plant to fish and you'll see hitch-hikers pretty easily in the cup. Remember that the rhizome needs to be...

That tank's not big enough for any other fish; snail or shrimp should be OK, just watch your parameters. CPD's need colder, lower pH water than is optimal for betta but betta are very adaptable so...

Couldn't say, honestly. I've bought online (Amazon) and had good experiences; everything else has been LFS. Are there any stores for gardens nearby that might carry aquatic plants, maybe?

Anubias is about as easy as they come; never had any issue with that (just know that the rhizome can't be planted under the substrate; it needs light). Other than that, vallis, java fern, java moss,...

Umm... a pinch? I don't really measure it out, just feed them until their belly rounds off. Package says as much as they'll eat in 30 seconds and it sounds about right. The pellets do vary in size...
