    30% is a maintenance change - if you want to reduce ammonia I'd go for 60-80% minimum.

    I did about everything wrong also when I first got my betta...I know what you're going through. I'm happy to say I learned alot since then and now he's living in a nice 5 gallon heated, filtered, decorated aquarium for almost 6 months. I still monitor the water parameters once a week and do weekly water changes. Now I'm working on a 12 gallon community tank, but I can't move him into it because he's just too aggressive, so he happily lives alone with no one to bother him.Good luck and enjoy your betta, he's beautiful!

    Why are you buying water from the store? Aren't you using tap water and decholorinator?

    Just what I was going to ask. I use Prime to treat the water, two drops per gallon. Also, make sure the water is the same temp.

    Is the water spring water or distilled? Distilled is not good for fish, it doesn't contain any of the nutrients in tap or spring water. I was using spring water, but the pH was 8 so I went back to tap water @ 7.2...all other parameters were wnl (within normal limits).
