    I purchased a Betta abt 7 months ago. His home: 5 gal heated filtered tank, 2 live plants & rocks substrate. 100% water changes abt every month. Roughly 1-1/2 weeks ago, he started acted funny. He would come up to eat but not eat, or spit it out. Then, no interest in food & started laying down on the bottom with his body half flopped over & VERY pale. I thought he was constipated. Now he is in a smaller container with epsom salt that floats in his tank. He has been in 1 quart of epsom salt water (daily changes) for 6 full days now with no improvement, breathing a little heavy, no eating or pooping. I saw a silver shiny spot near his face tonight. His face below his mouth has become gray, like an older dogs. His face being gray has been there for a over a month. He used to be quite feisty and flare alot, even at his own reflection where the filter sits. He has blown his fins several times which have not "healed". I do not see his scales sticking out. Is there any saving this poor guy?

    Dear Fish Lady =) I have a small question I was hoping you could answer for me. I have a 10 gallon tank that has a filter. I only run the filter when I am home fearing that it will suck up or hurt my Male Veil tail, Flotsom. Is this going to affect the health of my lil guy? I do bi weekly 25-75% water changes. I have a few live plants so I try to avoid the full 100% change.

    Hey, OFL, if the tank is bare-bottom, how can you keep plants in it? I wanted a few for a temp 1 gallon.

    The Armstrong garden has topsoil but will that have enough nutrients and minerals for the plants? Also on the second page of the thread are three alternative soils would any of those work? Some of them have mushroom compost would that harm my fish?

    Hi OFL sorry to bother but I'm in trouble. I am trying to set up a 5 gal. npt, long story short I have looked everywhere I can to get some organic soil. I currently have 2 different bags of soil and I am possibly going to make a trip down to Armstrong gardens today, I was wondering if you could confirm which of the soils I could use for this, I have pictures of the soils I have and links to the soils Armstrong sells. If you could even just take a look and tell me it would mean the world to me, Thanks you.

    The Thread title is: Can I use this dirt in my soon to be 5.5 gallon NPT
    *sorry it won't let me post direct link to the thread *
