    Neacco sadly passed away on the morning of 11/5/2012
    He had what appeared to be fin rot. He when thru api salt treatments & two differnt types of antibiotics. i am thankful for the nine months we had together as he was a bundle of energy most days & had his own goofy personality..that i fell in love with. he kept me company as ive spent mostly every day with him since he was adopted nine months ago.
    I pray that he is in a better place now where illness cannot rob him of his happiness. I luv u lots neacco rip little buddy...luv mommy

    Neaccos fin rot & illness + lack of energy is highly concerning....i fear i might lose him soon=/ he eats@ meal time but has such a lack of motivation & move ment. I clean his tank once a week since theres filters in his tank...that also get switched out ever two weeks.

    The ph I test when changing the water with spring and bottled water I don't use the ups & downs for the water if anything I use the fauset water to balance it toward 7.0...as some of the bottled water is a low ph wich Is more acidic* this processes dosnt bother him.....the amonia test I picked up is helpfull yet to see any spikes in the tank as I have a filter system and change his water out regualary...bolth test are api products and are liquid test kits....all be picking a master kit up once I have a good paying job. Neacco is the coolest little dude ever & he loves his tank I'm slowly adding things to it to make it more home like to him. I'm trying to pre grow some betta bulbs that will help turn his tank into an underwater jungle...I have only one silk plant in for now not a huge fan of the plastic crap lol.

    *its truely a sad day when a family pet passes away* rip betta buddy
    I posted a tread today ...about empsom salt...was kinda confused and thought there was a certain brand for fish or product. I got some answers to clarify ...as long as humans can drink it it should be fine for the bettas...no fragrances or what not. I picked up a ph test kit & a ammonia test kit. I don't feel confortable with cycling the 5gallon tank yet id like neacco to be a 100% befor he has to put up with that. I don't know how much a 5 gallon can cycle come pared to a 10 gallon tank...I put his subtrate back in the tank...filter systems running and the heater keeps the tank at 80'f. He loves his 5gallon tank& truely spazes when I have to remove him from the tank so I thought maby only one 100% every 4weeks or so...and 75% once a week and one 25% once a week. Pre soaking his pellets to help keepem from the constipation issues and feedings every other day...

    Unfortunately he passed. I would check your water parameters for ammonia, nitrate, and nitrites. The epsom salt can be found usually at dollar type stores, wal-mart and grocery stores. You can find it in the first aid section.
