    Alright, so my water params as of today before my water change were: 1ppm or .5ppm ammonia (that stupid test is so hard to read accurately), 0 nitrite, 2-3ppm nitrate. I ahven't been able to change the water before today because I have been sick. Looks like I will be picking up a bottle of safestart after school tomorrow...This has got me really frustrated.

    Oooh I might have to get Anubias. so if I am using a LED light, that will not have an affect on these plants? I can get these at the store correct?

    Hahaha agreed for me as well. XD

    I will look into that live plant idea. do you know any easy plants out there? I really don't have a green thumb either. outside plants are fine for me, but when I deal with indoor plants.. I suck at them. LOL

    you're welcome. =)

    thanks so much! I saw him at the pet store and I just had to get him. can I get IAL at the pet stores? I have a fish store down town and I'm sure she might have some. what would be the best way to keep ammonia at bay?

    Well the way I see it, a bottle of aquasafe costs as much as a school of replacement tetras....and who knows how long it would take to cycle gotta pick your battles I guess...

    Oh man, I don't believe I've heard a future-tense issue does just make my head want to spin around. ;) And I totally agree, the endless now is massively annoying. Sometimes I wonder if it's a grammar problem, or an aspect of the ridiculous nihilistic self-centeredness that seems to have taken over...Part of the "everyone gets a trophy!" and "even though you FAILED, it's okay, you did a great job!" mentality. NO NO NO NO! I'm all for self-esteem, but if you just pat children on the head for being alive, then when they actually DO accomplish something, it means NOTHING! Adults have just completely robbed any sort of accomplishment from any meaning by the constant showering of praise and adulation that becomes background noise. Or, all those years of psychology classes have just warped my brain. ;)

    Thank you! Oh I am pretty new when it comes to bettas, but I do my best do educate also people who still have a 'wrong' image about keeping fish. I still learn a lot and when I was getting ready for my betta I learnt so much new! :)
