    Here is a better view of the tank for all those who couldn't make it out the first time. Just took it half an hour ago:

    ++1 - transferring the current fish into the larger tank will do a world of good for them space-wise rather than trying to scrub out a tiny tank with them in there.

    but return the clown loach and the pelco
    i hear some people say, "i kept a goldfish in a bowl and it lived for a year."
    they don't know how lucky they were and all goldfish live at least 15 years in proper conditions.
    that is equal to saying my human lived in his closet for 5 years!

    Good advice, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

    Just finished tests, results were odd with Nitrate levels because the N02 level was at a color that did not even match the chart, but matched the color for N03; not sure if I did something wrong. Might take a trip to Petsmart and let them test it.

    .25 Ammonia

    I would redo those tests and make sure you have the right reagents together and follow the instructions carefully.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    For fish I see the clown loach (he needs a new home asap as they need schools and can grow to be a foot long), neon tetras (would be suitable in the 20 if you got a proper school), zebra danios and maybe a glo fish danio cant tell (not really good for the 20 long term since they like lots of swimming room), and a platy (that could stay in the 20 with the neons, you probably would not want to get more since they are poop machines). I didnt see the pleco but that fish should find a new home too.

    I also would put all the fish in the 20 with both filters running. That way tou can empty the 5 and throw away the gravel and start over with substrate. Once the 5 was clean and cycled with a filter you could house a betta there.

    good luck

    Sunday, I ended up going to Petsmart to have them test the water. The girl took not even a minute to test and tell me it was normal. I asked her could I see the results? She said oh, I threw it away. Then proceeded on attempting to explain to me. Not sure if I can fully trust, but she said the conditions are fine.

    I tested the nitrate levels again and it came up at 0. Picture attached.

    Thanks for input everyone - Then that is what I will do. I'll move fish over to new tank, clean the old one out and make it the new home for the betta. In the meantime, find a new home for clown loach and the plecko. Couldn't I just keep the clown loach and plecko until they get a little bigger?

    It would be better for the fish if you rehomed them now so the risk of stunting their growth is minimal.

    Honestly, when I was just a beginner, they always told me my water was normal - they allow up to 1.0ppm of ammonia as "fine" which it isn't and because they use strips, they won't tell you exact readings. I think if you brought in a sample of water right from your tap they'd say it was "good" :( - they want you to buy fish from them so of course everything is normal.
