    I might just do that. But it would be harder on the girls for a fish-in cycle. Her gill plate has a little bright red. Does that mean ammonia poisoning or proper air circulation as OFL stated. She's not that lethargic anymore, but she still breaths heavily. I added Prime so it should be able to neutralize the ammonia until tonight's water change.

    Well you could put her in the 20 gal, then find a slightly larger QT container, and then get tye rest of the girls...

    Sorry I was thinking up a riddle. She's the 1st, I couldn't leave her at the store.

    Oh, yeah. Damn, I forgot about the heated rooms! AAUGHH!! :( I don't think I can... My water change bucket is used by my family, don't worry, we have big plastic bags. Which means I can't use that. *sigh* There's only one solution. My 20 G tank. I can wait until ammonia is 0ppm and then add her in. But, then there's the other fish to QT. Crap...

    I don't think you can really heat those...You need a hot room for those, like a fish room heated to 73+.....Could you get a bigger jar or a bucket or something? The mini heater should work in that...

    It's a mason jar, you know those breeder jars... I don't know exactly, but I do daily changes. If breeders can do it, I can. I'm going to breed in the future anyway. Hopefully...

    No, you didn't sound mean at all. :) Those Hydors are freakin' awesome!! Thanks for showing me that link! Oh, and I have this sympathy Betta named Winnie. (Long story on name) I got a preset heater since the QT jar is so small and it heated to 86F! :( I offed it, what do you think I should do? Ice won't really help..
