Need more information-what size tank, how much/often on the water changes, temp, filter, additives-what kind of plants-timeline of adding plants to fin rot-cause of the first fin rot to start...etc....usually adding aquatic plants will not cause the problem and killing germs...well....not sure I understand what you are wanting since a sterile environment will not support life as we know it..have you made a new thread on this with pic...that would help....
Hi OldFishLady ^-^;
do you know a good way to rid a tank of germs without killing the cycle bacteria?
my betta was getting over fin rot and he seemed to have healed up and I added some plants in and it came back worse ><
I've put him in a half gallon clean glass vase till I can get a 1 gallon tank, and have added half a teaspoon of salt. ( told to make it a full teaspoon after two days )
I'm hoping this will fix him up but I want to make sure his tank is c;lean before I add him back. do you have advice? ^-^; thankyou as always <3
My fish just got caught in our air pump. We got him out in time but I was wondering if there was anyhting we could put over the air pump to let it continue to filter but so Mocha wont keep getting stuck in it.
Okay thank you ill check it out right now :) I think ive actually got my dad interested, he had a betta in a small bowl at some point before i ever even bothered but mine are making him want another :)) Very relaxing, and he needs that. He asked if id ever breed mine but i think my boys a bit too old for such a thing, especially by the time i felt comfortable and confident with that. Maybe i can help him get a fish and HE can take that 10 gallon instead XD
Free tanks are always nice...lol....
You can safely cycle the tank with the Betta as long as you make the needed water changes like you are doing.....

My neighbor whom i dont talk to sat a 10 gallon outside just today, 2 days after i buy one, one appears. Hes planning on getting rid of it and my dads already trying to get it off of him to give me, he doesnt seem to understand the space issue :)) Though the idea of putting a tank outside on my porch sounds alittle interesting, i think ill get it and hold onto it for the possible future :) Again ty for the help. Ill check back later for the address. :)
