    Only one of my tanks has an actual light, an led, but it is only on if I go in to see him at night. All of my tanks only have indirect light all day, the tanks with no lights have table lamps, again they are only on when I need to see the fish at night or do water changes etc. So, is there a particular plant that would do well with this kind of lighting?

    Hey OFL...what is a good floating plant for unfiltered tank. My room has two widows, and that is the light I use during the day, though no direct sunlight. I need something easy enough for a newbie, but beneficial to both tank and betta, thanks!

    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!

    Thanks OFL, I really appreciate you messaging me back. I removed him from the tank and I think I'll just leave him separate, I'll pick up a 5 gallon later on and put him in there as his new house lol.

    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!

    Hullo OFL!

    Thx so much for all your great posts!

    I learn so much reading them.

    I am learning to be patient as I assess what I want to do with my tanks.

    I now have waaaaay more tanks than I thought I ever would!

    Am going to visit 2 LFS this weekend with a shopping list to compare prices.

    All good wishes,

    But, just curious: Do you think a used carbon filter cartridge rinsed in old tank water is just as effective as like any other type? Like a sponge or something?

    Ohh, THANK YOU! This is exactly the information I need! You're the best.

    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!
