  1. Melting/Rotting anacharis causing ammonia spike?

    Planted Betta Tanks

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I just picked up new plants today, at petco and petsmart: three anubius plants and a bunch of anacharis. (And a marimo ball, but I'm not too concerned about it. XD) Currently, all plants are in qt tanks, petco plants in one and petsmart plants in another. (Marimo in its cup with fresh water.)...
