    Adding a filter might reduce the colony in the other filter by spreading it around. I can't see how it would crash it unless it ran out of food (ammonia). Hang in there. It'll cycle back up in no time.

    Just read your "make sense" thread again. Is that the 2.5g that''s been running smooth and stable for almost a year now? Did you check tapwater? Did you forget to treat your refill water? It only takes once. Any plants die? I can't think of anything that would crash your cycle without killing your stock.

    It's some kind of mini-cycle. Treat it like a newly cycled tank. It'll come back in short order.

    Whoa...what's up with that? You already did a small-tank cycle successfully. What are you not doing, or doing wrong this time?

    Better, Kate. They finally fixed my homepage, so that it's not just vertical lines of letters. I've been avoiding it. How're you? What's with your new cycle?

    It's weighted so it won't tip or float. The foam is just the right density for a bacteria colony.
    It can use an airstone which increases the flow without increasing the splashing. It's only a buck or two more than the cheapos.

    It doesn't matter in an established, cycled tank. But for uncycled or, especially, at the beginning of the cycle it's quite important.

    Don't remember having read that. Most use an irritant to promote slimecoat. I don't think Seachem does that in this product.

    Prime is so often recommended here because it's ammonia detoxifier most easy to come by. If you must be a contrarian, you can use Amquel-Plus.

    Prime detoxifies ammonia. StressCoat does not. Some people say Stresscoat is good for finrot (Salt is bad news). My stock has never had that, but I have a small bottle anyway. I'[m leery of anything that says it promotes slimecoat. I have Prime in a 100mL (3.4oz) bottle which I decant into an empty test kit bottle so I can easily dose 2 drops/gal.

    That's my motto.

    Sorry I can't see your basic Betta care video. I have a 45 kps dialup. I'm sure you did a great job.
