    Thank you Hallyx, I appreciate that I consider that quite a compliment from you. Personally, I think you have a wider range of knowledge & experience from what I've read in your posts. I'm quite the newbie, less than 2 yrs, so my knowledge is limited, I can only share my experiences & hope it helps.

    My 2.5g tanks, 1 at work & 1 at home, do not have live plants & I haven't been testing either. I do twice weekly water change.s typically around 80% each time with a 100% periodically. I have tested in the past & it took about 4 days, if I remember correctly for ammonia to show as .25.

    I got crazy busy for a while! Just moved to a new place and I'm in the process of setting up two NPT's. I'm down to one species at the moment, I have my 4 ocellata and their babies. I'm hoping they will spawn again once they get settled in :)

    Thank you, Hallyx! The main purpose of writing the ammonia measurement so specifically was to be as clear as possible, is all. Haha, I'm sure it doesn't help that both of my parents are science majors of some sort!

    Thanks! Most of my aquarium experience is with saltwater tanks, seahorses mainly. I've only been keeping Bettas for about a year now. Really getting seriously into Bettas in the past few months. Do ponds count as aquarium experience? Haha, cause I've always had ponds too! In the process of setting up my new 1200 gal pond in the backyard.

    Thank you!!! Yeah Rembrandt has grown quite a bit since my last avatar photo of him. The last one was nearly 7 months old!! But I never got good flare pictures or just pictures in general of him until a few days ago, so I was happy to make a new avatar! Still weird seeing a different picture though lol

    LOL. I hadn't even thought about being stalked but now that you mention it . . .

    Thank you about the tanks. I went a little crazy when I started, I've only been in the hobby about 18 months & I'm finally slowing down a bit with it. Although I do have have 2 tanks sitting around doing nothing.

    Thank you. Yeah I love them, beautiful and almost impossible to kill. I have three kinds, but I'd love to get more.

    Thanks, Hallyx. I've gotten great response on this thread...much appreciated. I understand about the Walmart comment...it or Petsmart is all we have here. Funny thing is we have an LPS which even carries Kanaplex! yet their fish are covered in ich...very obvious when I was there yesterday...in every tank but the salt water. Sad.

    Thanks for your time. Sadly, I think he breathed his last earlier...not going to call it until tomorrow for sure; if he is not gone yet, my prodding him won't be comfortable, either.
