    Hallyx! Hi!

    I was wondering, do you keep any other fish besides bettas? Or any other animals for that matter?

    So just hold the test tube up un a well lit area and look through the tube rather than puttig the tube against a white surface?

    I will try putting a piece of gravel in there, thanks.

    Okay, so for the liquid test....Is the actual color of the liquid the result, or the color I see when I hold the test tube right up against the card (touching). Because there is a dramatic difference...The color of the liquid says five....Up against the paper it says ten. Ugh.

    What a prestigious title :)

    How do I get a bead in there and what kind of bead do I use?

    Are the omega ones what you feed the smaragdina?

    Do you have a name for that copper HMPK?

    ETA: Ah! I know why you have lower nitrates than I do...You have no chloramines and therefore no ammonia in your source water!
    Ah well...10-20ppm nitrate by the end of the week is fine with me and probably fine with my fish, however, 5 would bring much more piece of mind /:

    Copper is a very interesting color on a fish. I really like the way he is looking at the camera in the picture ^_^

    So basically I am not over feeding....Maybe under feeding? I fast on water change day as well - easier to remember that way...

    Will do...But could 6 NLS pellets, 6 days a week conceiveably be too much?

    Oh yeah....I run the ATI mini in my 2.5...But I seem to get 10-20 nitrate by the week's end. Am I feeding too much?

    No ammonia or nitrite though. It's cycled.

    Thank you for your help.
