If you buy a test lkit, forget the strips which are not as accurate as a liquid test kit. API make good ones, most ofus use them; the MAster Combo is a good investment, it has pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate tests.
Ok here's where I am: test kit ordered and on the way. 10 gal tank up and running with heater and 4 plants and some jungle brand bacteria starter. I fitted a plastic cup over the filter to decrease the flow for the betta. I have the betta in a 1 gal bowl with a plant and a heater (stuff I had from a while ago). I have been changing the water in the 1 gal daily. He seems happy ( but I'm no expert) and has a gigantic bubble nest. Should I still put him in the 10 gal before its done cycling?
Also, would you recommend snail, shrimp, or otos to go in the 10 gal with the betta? Thanks!!! Posted via Mobile Device
