Thank you! All is fine right now, just been living and taking care of family/pets and working on getting health back in order. Volunteering with youth programs, etc in town so have been busy. Hope all is good with you!
Repost: If my betta fish DOES pass away at some point in his life (I hope not soon or there will always be tears regardless) what would I do?
His 5 gallon is fully cycled, but how can I keep dosing ammonia to keep the cycle continuing (before I add a new betta, of course) if there are 2 Amano shrimp in the tank?! They will surely die! & we all don't want that.
Hi OFL, sorry to bother you but I was wondering if you had any information on Indian Whisker Shrimp? I recently got one but I'm worried he'll hurt my betta, I tried researching this species online and haven't got much information from Google except that in a group they can attack fish. I'm worried =( I hope either way you can let me know that way I can take him out and house him separately from my fish. Thanks OFL, hope you're having a great day!
My 5 gallon tank is cycled w/ carbon filters... since they must be replaced every 4-6 weeks, what should I do? All the BB is in the filter!
Should I cut the filter open & pour out the carbon, then shove that UNDER the new carbon cartridge? I have 3 extras of these & they go w/ my tank. Please help me!
Hello OFL! My tank has been cycling for about 4 weeks (10 gal, heated filtered, houses 1 betta & 2 nerite snails).. My tap water contains .5 ppm ammonia... Today I have 0 ppm ammonia, 0 nitrite, between 5-10 nitrate. Is it possible for a tank to cycle this fast?? I did not use any seeded materials & I only have 2 small live plants. Thanks.
