I say this a lot...

What makes a betta so much different in care than other fish? When I was talking about having high alk, I was targeting South american fish such as Cardinal Tetras, Hatchets, Rams, etc, who generally need soft water. But they would all process salt the same way.

I don't use it anymore. I'm glad that someone finally explained why it shouldn't be used because I never really understood before.

What about your UGF? What's running it? A powerhead? Most UGF's are either run with airstones down the uplift tubes or with power filters on top of them. If you have a powerhead there's no need for the air pump, it's not going to do anything to help the fish.
