    Hello, OFL I need some help, I know you are someone that can assist me in this problem, please tell me if there is something wrong with this VT that I recently took in as a rescue, with moderate fin rot, and has been in a 1.75 gal Krittr keeper with AQ salt treatment for 3days, and now he has some red in his face, and eyes, I am using 1/2 tsp for his KK and doing 100% water changes daily. His fin rot is clearing up, but now I am concerned with the red in his face and around his eyes.

    I hope that this one's not fatal. Thanks for helping dragonflower. Even if it's not my Betta, all deserve to be helped if needed.

    Hi OFL. It's me LTB.
    I've been to this Thread made by dragonflower. It's called 'bump on betta'. Unfortunately, I do not know how to post a direct Link, I'm an idiot. And I already told her to PM you, or Mo, or Sakura8, or other Betta Pros.
    She/he already did the Information Sheet, and based on the Pictures her/his Betta seems to have a Tumor. Please PM her because she didn't reply to me yet. Is there things you could do to save a Betta with a Tumor? I thought there was not much to do.

    Sincerely, LTB, LebronTheBetta

    Alright thanks OFL, I will have to keep records of when I set it up and all that.

    For stem plants I have rotala, lots and lots, hygro corymbosa, ludwigia, guppy grass, and wisteria. I have access to all those. I know I am gonna use the rotala as it roots very fast, but what other plant would go well? I plan on having Crypts in front and all the stems in a massive area in the back.

    Alright thanks OFL, my dad was saying that it is high in iron so I knew that it should be good. Now I just need to find a good pitting soil with no manure and not so much wood.

    For a newly set up tank without fish, maybe just some snails, how often should I be changing the water? I know to do lots of water changes at first because of the nutrients, I am just not sure on the frequentcy

    When setting up a NPT, how do you know if the dirt is really good or not? My Aunt has lots of dirt at her house, but I m not sure if it has lots of nutrients, also should I mix it with organic soil?

    Hey OFL! I had a question, would a 20 gal tank be too smal for amazon swords? I am planning on doing a NPT with my 20 gal and I have been told it is good or too small and I figured you would give me the BEST knowledge on the subject

    No one knows for sure, so I'll ask you....Do you have to do weekly water changes in a tank that is being cycled? There are no fish in it yet.
