    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 *

    OFL, my dad bought another betta thats a female (and hates King Dedede) and he keeps putting it in the 5g with my other betta, King Dedede when I put her in the 1g. What should I do?

    i just got a veil tail betta and he is extremely active when the water temo is at 79 degrees but not at 78 or 80 is this normal. and his name is whiskers, the reason i names him that is because i was asking him what he wanted his name to be and i had a list of 10 different names and when i said whiskers he came to the side of his bowl and flared all of his fins. i feed him the gold bio betta food and i use a stress calmer liquid drops and a freshwater salt to help him better breath. it seems to help. my only concern is the fin under him is splitting it seems to not bother him at this point but it does concern me. how do i fix this or is the splitting normal for a veil tail betta? it looks like 2 strings hanging down from his belly.

    That is what I am beginning to realize myself. I have looked into Hikari and they seem to go out of their way to do extensive research about the eating habits and nutritional needs of the specific types of fish that they make their specially formulated foods for. They even worked with NASA so that says something. Based on all that I am going to take a chance on them and trust them...

    Oh okay. Well that company seems to know what they are doing and they do extensive research on the nutritional needs of fish, so I am going to give them a try ;)
