    I know I can't cycle in a small tank, which is why I was thinking of a 5 gallon. I currently do 100% every 3 days in my 1.5 gallon, but at school I'm not sure I'll be able to do the whole process that regularly. And since I'll have to have him on a higher shelf, doing a 2 or 3 gallon is going to be difficult, because I would do 100% water changes but that would be heavier and more difficult to lift and maneuver. If I had a 5 gallon, after the tank is cycled I could start doing 25% water changes or 50% water changes along with siphoning, and live plants will help. Though I still haven't made up my mind on size because I haven't seen the dorm I'll have this year.

    I think I'll buy them from a petsmart where they have the plants outside of the water. I would be interested in your link though! The only problem with a three gallon is that I might have to have him on a higher desk shelf in my dorm, and it'll be really difficult to take the tank on and off of that shelf. Won't the plants help the cycle? I thought you just needed to do 25% water changes once a week on a 5 gallon. Hmm...

    Sorry I never replied! My fish is doing really well, so I haven't been on the forum much. I've been using the same water conditioner since I got this fish, and he seems to be doing well with it. He's in a 1.5 gallon tank, and I do 100% water changes every 3 to 4 days. I'm planning on getting him either a 3 or a 5 gallon tank (depends on what fits in my dorm room), and some live plants.

    I still get confused on this website. I will try to make a new thread and I do need all the help I can get with these Guppies. Did you see the pics? Do they look pregnant to you? I did get the link thank you very much very imformative. As far as the Betta and the Guppies 3 months and no problems. I put them in at the same time. I feed them The Betta Min Tropical Medley and I also give the Betta 1 or 2 freeze dried blood worms food twice a day. I didn't know it caused constipation. I will stop that immediately. I do have the pellets but he won't eat them.

    Thank you, I'd love to have the link. I test the water every other day. I also change my cartridge every 2 weeks. I love this little guy. He's so friendly I enjoy feeding him his freeze dried worms to him. I only give him two but he will follow my finger..then he gets it out of my hand..lol

    I rescued him from a girl I used to work with she didn't take care of him properly and got very sick and she was going to flush him. So I brought him home bought him a 5 Gal tank and began trying to save his life.

    He passed away...I was so upset. I bought a new one my granddaughter named him squidward lol. I also got with 3 male Guppies. They are doing great, except 1 or 2 of my so called male Guppies look pregnant.
