Honestly, call it paranoia… I use...

<0,01 mg/l NO2

I have a male Betta. I've had him for a few months now and it has been absolutely perfect in his tank - clear water and a happy Betta with bubble nests every day.
Over the past couple days, it seems to have dropped drastically and I can't figure out why. The water is cloudy-white and it...
I am never going to sleep knowing this.

Hi all you experienced breeders in the house...
OK Well after stressing out for the last two days I have confirmed eggs. Yes, they are in the nest and falling out of the nest and busy new daddy is working hard grabbing them and spitting them back up.

i'm planning to buy API Stress coat because i can see a little bit of fin rot on my betta. since it's also a water conditioner, can i use it with a different water conditioner that i have already? or is it best to use API only until there's no sign of fin rot?
