    Thanks for the reply ......Zen died late this morning ( 2:30 am ).....he is on the bottom ..
    he is not floating like other fish , that I saw dead at the horrible place for animals at Walmart !!! The little guy was very unlucky, even the light of his tank ( Aqueon )
    blew out with smoke and fumes !!!!

    My sister's betta "Sensei" his fins were disappearing and it's a bit on his body.She treated him with AQ salt (2times) should he get Kanaplex ? or wait 1or 2 days ? He is eating and making bubbles !!! Water is fine ,he's in a 5GL tank with filter and heater.
    Eats Hickari bio-gold pellets , frozen bloodworms ( Thawed ) and ocean plankton (Hickari). Changing he's water every week 25 % with spring or drinking water and conditioning with NovAqua Plus (Kordon's). Water tep.78.

    Thanks Vicky

    Oh okay! Then I will get a new girl to QT for 2 weeks and put my current girl in the 10... Should I do a 100% change before putting her back?

    Betta** Oh forgot to mention I don't have any live plants in the cycling tank, I removed them for now. I heard that cranking the heater up to 86 degrees would help it cycle and I was worried the heat would harm my plants.. I don't have very many live plants currently though.

    I will eventually have it divided into two sections with 1 female Berta on each side along with 2 nerite snails. My filter is the aqua tech 5-15 power filter with bio fiber biological filtration. The only thread I've made regarding the cycling is titled "Fastest way to cycle a tank" located in the Betta bowl/habitat section.

    Thank you for your time! :)

    Hello OFL. Ive recently started to cycle my 10 gallon tank fish-less. Yesterday I started with fish food.. The ammonia was hardly rising and it was very unsightly. Today I siphoned out (most) of the food and poured in a few ML's of ammonia (ace hardware brand) I measured and it is at 4 ppm.

    When cycling, how much ammonia should I add per day? Is 4 ppm too low- or should I try to maintain that? At what point in the cycle should I stop adding ammonia?

    Thank you very much!
