My new baby copper red halfmoon named YOSHII. He's only about 2 inches long from nose to tip of tail.
Just got him at Petsmart a few days ago..was able to get him as he came in to the store as new...
Sorry, but i don't see the need in this comment.
I wanted help/answers....most responses (on 3 diff boards) said it should be OK.
I tried it..and it didn't work.
A 2.5 is NOT terrible....it's what...
I had to remove the snail after about 5 hours...the betta went crazy starting to head butt the snail and ate the snail's algae wafer.
My betta ended up with 2 tears in his tail fin.
Well, i got 1 small red-track nerite snail...the betta flared for a while, but now ignores him.
He's small....maybe 1/3 inch
How often should they be fed?
I have Hikari algae wafers.
Is it possible to have 1 nerite snail with a betta in a cycled 2.5gallon?
What about a red cherry shrimp?
I have had my betta in the tank already for 8 weeks.
I re-tested again today and got: 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 20ppm nitrates
So, it looks like i'm cycled.
I just did a 30%ish water change and the nitrates now are between 10-20ppm
Maybe I got an incorrect reading the 1st time??
I did a 30% or so, water change and the nitrate reading is between 10-20ppm now.
Now, i'm really confused.....i have asked the same question on 3 diff. boards and am getting many different responses.
Some say do w/c immediately, some say wait until the 14 days are up(TSS...
I retested this morning. I have not done a water change yet.
I now have over 20ppm nitrate but under 40ppm.
Should i leave it a few more days like TSS recommends?
With TSS (Tetra SafeStart) you don't do any water changes until you are cycled.(It usually takes 2 weeks) It looks like for me was 8 days. So, it's been 8 days without a change.
I added TSS 8 days ago to my 2.5g tank with betta that had been already running for 7 weeks (no progress)
My readings tonight are:
I think i'm cycled. (very...
