    Hi... Again. :o
    Well, somehow my tank got an ammonia spike. :( I did a water change that was like 60% and now it's around 3ppm. How did that happen? I also put in decorations that I bought today. Does my hand do anything with the parameters? To be honest, I didn't wash my hands before.. I guess I forgot. :( It just... Happened.

    Thoughts? It's my 1st fishless. There weren't any spikes when I did a fish-in with Lebron.

    Went to get a 10 gallon today and turns out it was a 5.5. Dummies. I bought it anyway so it wasn't a wasted trip. It came with a lot of stuff and looks brand new. My point is looks like I'm going to get a dirty Betta.

    Oh okay, thank god. *phew* Hehe
    The tank is already dark, filter on high, and that's about it. x( I still need to get a heater, and I'm possibly getting an aerator volcano, too. I'll search for it when I go to my Petco on Friday, thanks again.

    Well, we went to Petsmart but my mom didn't like any of the decorations. xD We're going to try a different store on Friday. For the SafeStart, I forgot to get it. :/ It's because I saw this purple female with orange fins. And my sister was starting to get grumpy. My tank is cloudy, probably just a bacterial bloom. And my dad is going to install the hood tonight, should I keep the light on or off? Hallyx said the bacteria reproduce quicker in warm water, having the filter on high, lots of aeration, and darkness.

    I'm going to Petsmart later to get some decorations so I might as well get that. I'll try to experiment it with the the one I have, thanks for everything.

    I changed the water, it's 3.0ppm right now. I have Top Fin Bacteria Supplement, will that do? There's no Stability by Seachem here and I don't think there's Tetra Safestart.

    Damn, it's really late right now. :/ Will it hurt if I do the water change tomorrow? Well, later on today?

    Hello TKM. I think I overdosed my ammonia... I'm using pure ammonia for my cycle and it's WAY OVER the charts! The green is SO dark! Is the filter going to be stalled? :/
