    can you check out my sale thread and remind me which one #3 is, or which one(s) you want. They all look so much alike its hard to tell them apart. But now that I have updated pictures and know exactly what to look for in each one I can figure it out better.

    You have first dibs on anyone(S) that you want since you have already paid me for #3.

    Sorry for the confusion! I ddint think that they had changed so much since I got them!

    Lol i am bad with names. I had similar situation when i got betta and i didn't realized how much he cost, but i feel bad to put him back. It so many of them and it difficult for me to put them back.... I just bought an elephant ear betta. He was $22. And i always so nervous when i go to the store to buy them. I actually might go today . I had coworker that want a betta. So i think i will go now, it my break time 2.30. I hope you enjoy your betta:)

    Try not cycled tank. My bettas live really long with 50% and 100% water changes a week. I do it for my 5 gall and i do for 2.5 gall 2-50% and 1-100% a week. It difficult to say which method is better when you have one betta. But i have 5 of them at home and i also have 2 at the office i am working, and i really think that my bettas live longer without cycling. Try that. You already tried betta in the cycled tank....I think a few more people already recommended it to you in your thread. No matter how good/right care you do they still can get sick. You can have 2 betta in the same 10 gall tank and feed the same ...and one still can get sick. But try my recommendation...i think it work great for bettas...and it not only my recommendation :) Good luck.

    I think you have 2 gall tank? Can i give advice on water change? I think your tank was cycled?

    About disinfection, make sure you wash really well the clorine out. And you must know that there are lots of different bleaches out there. You must not use bleach with additives (many come mixed with detergent). So, make sure it a bleach like Clorox Regular.

    Usually i would say avoid to bleach heaters because people tend to submerge them and it will become very hard to remove the bleach from inside. You don't want bleach sitting inside there either as it may leach into aquarium water later or harm the heater itself. Since you already did it just make sure yo wash it well and i would completely submerge it in the clean water and upside down ...and when you dry it out keep it upside down to ensure no disinfection solution left.

    Hey sorry for your betta:( Do you have another betta? Make sure you disinfect the tank before you introduce another betta in that tank. Good luck:)
