    OFL, I need some wisdom based on experience. My Kessler has some ragged fins. He does not have any black or brown on the edges. actually they are white. I have never seen him bite them, but it seems he is as the ragged edges happened over night. I have quar. him in a small tank with salt. He looks good, is blowing bubbles.and eats well. Do you have any idea why or how to correct this?

    Is there a thread on how to start, what parameters and do's and don'ts for a naturally planeted tank? I was just curious I'm not interested in doing one but more just to have the knowledge handy. Like the cycling guide or the acclimation guide we have for the bettas and their tanks.

    For fin rot-I would start with 1tsp/gal for minor...if pretty severe I would start with 2tsp/gal....also tannins are good to add along with 100% daily water changes for 10 days while in a small QT container....

    Hi OFL. I have yet another question :P I want a BN pleco for my 29 gallon, and I know they need driftwood fiber to help with digestion. I bought something similar, Mopani Wood I believe it's called. It's real wood, it leaches tannins and all. Apparently it's some sort of African HardWood. My question is, will a BN pleco be able to get the fibers from this? Thanks!

    To be honest...I have no idea...if its not bothering your other Bettas then I wouldn't think it would bother the fry far away is it from where the tank will be.....
