    Ammonia is way too high! Anything over. 25 is not healthy for fish...you need to do a big water change immediately. Also, you can try SafeStart beneficial bacteria from Tetra.

    SafeStart gives the cycling a jump start by providing the bacteria that you would eventually get in your aquarium when it is fully cycled. You need to very closely monitor the water quality by testing all parameters (pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate) every day. Any time the ammonia is over. 25, since you are cycling with fish, you must do a water change immediately.

    Sadly, this is why you shouldn't impulse buy fish and tanks. A tank should be cycled before you stock it with fish. Your poor betta is being slowly scalded and burned by his own waste.

    Huge water changes are the only ethical way to go from here on in.

    yeah i know very bad impulse buy but problem was my guinea pig died day before that from brain tumor n was depressed then i saw this guy n went blah n got him XD n yeah im putting betta Safe tablet thing in the water im useing to change it so hope it helps. i also uncovered the filter more too hopeing that helps. i have the filter covered with like a panty ho because he kept getting stuck on it >< its a 10 gallon filter in a little 5.5 gallon tank it came with it. btw am i feeding him to much? going to see if i can find somthing to stick around the filter to keep him away from it atm i just made the panty ho thinner by streching it n now its sucking better too so hopeing that will help it more.

    You should test the water before a water change - this will tell you how much water you need to change.

    Live and learn - don't impulse buy again. The animal you buy is the one that suffers. We've all done it, I know. Tanks are far nicer when they are planned and carefully set up.
