    Ah ok. That explains it. I just remember when I put soil in my tank for the first time (no fish) the ammonia skyrocketed off the charts.

    I'm also looking at your other journal...

    :D Just a little update!

    I recently replaced the 5 gallon with the 6.6 that I had originally wanted! I also moved it to a new location in my office! It's no longer on my desk, but right behind my desk on my printer stand. I moved my printers down to the below shelves instead. I like this much better because the light in the room no longer interferes with the light in the tank, since it's partially surrounded by dark wood.

    Aries is much happier in here! I noticed an IMMEDIATE difference in his activity and his eating habits. Before he was a picky brat about eating, and now he gobbles up his food like a greedy teenage boy! :D

    He also has a nice new very large bubblenest in the back corner of the tank where he always builds them. It's a half-inch thick and covers 1/4th of the tank~!

    :D I actually love it. I used a little filter media from my 29 gallon at home and stuffed it inside the filter, and have had perfect water parameters from day one! The filter is actually pretty strong on it, a little too strong for Aries (he was getting annoyed with the water movement) so I used the little plastic rock case that goes on top to soften the water flow.

    The light on it sucks. If you want to put plants in it, put something that can survive in ANY light like anubias or some kind of wisteria. I have anubias in mine and it's doing well. I have to take out the other plants, though, as they're dying.

    But my betta is VERY happy in it. He makes a new bubble nest every week :)

    I bought one for my 18 month old nephew for Christmas because he loves my fish tank at home.

    Always does me good to see a betta treated with the respect they deserve. There's so many jammed into tiny unsuitable tanks...

    :D Aww thank you. Yeah, I can't stand it when people think they can throw a betta into a cup and it'll be fine. My betta before this one had his own standard 5-gallon tank. He died of old age around Easter and I sold the whole tank set up off to buy this new one! I'm so happy I did, too. It really makes a difference having him in my office. Whenever I get stressed out, I just turn and watch him for a while.

    Anyway, I digress. Did you notice this one's out? http://usa.hagen.com/Aquatic/Aquariu...-Desktop/10516
    I did, actually! Haha I was just reading about it over lunch today. A friend mentioned she was interested in getting a tank, so I decided to buy her one for Christmas. She originally said she liked the fashion tanks...then changed her mind and said she wanted something big enough for a community--so I'll be getting her a standard 29 instead.
