    Well actually I had help getting this girl from AquaBid so I've technically owned her for about a month but she finally got to me is all. I've gone from 1 to 22 in a year so I think that's perfectly fine!

    I've added water to it when it evaporated but I had a busy week taking care of a lady's tank that I pet-sit for. I spent 8 hours cleaning that thing and I could still spend another 8 to get all that poop out of there! So I was kind of water-changed'out for the week :-/

    Lilnaugrim! It was only a week ago! This addiction must be crazy now.

    And as for the 33G, I also slacked on my tanks too. Only around 2 times only, though. Think of the fish! That's what I always say that is. :p

    Actually 22 now XD lol I got my new girl in! Well 15 of them are in the sorority so I really only have 6 tanks set up for them so it's not too bad. I've been slacking on my 33 though, hasn't had a proper water change in two weeks

    Ah, I see. You still have 21 bettas as I recall, right? I asked you before on how you put up with them but day-um. lol

    No, Ditto had ripped his fins on the filter and that was the start of it; it's been on and off since then. Then Jarvis came with it but I didn't know it, it looked like his regular coloration but he came from a tank with two other male PK's and the owner didn't know they were males. He didn't have chunks taken out so I assume it was the water quality and Gambit hasn't bitten yet that I can see of.

    Oh, alrighty then. Good luck with them. Were they fin biters at the start? And I had a betta named Ditto earlier this year. ^.^ But she died along with the rest of my sorority.

    Ah okay.

    Thank you! That's Rembrandt And they're all doing well except Jarvis and Ditto who have fin rot which I'm treating now and Gambit whom I got because of his bad fin rot and split in his anal fin but everyone else is doing really well!

    Oh, I know. I meant for a long time. :p

    I meant about the ammonia turning into nitrite. xD So.. How are your bettas coming along, your avatar is stunning!

    Yes, it's a fish-less. Fish would die in 2ppm. :L
    It's because I had an ammonia spike in my 20G before, and I had to do a water change. I dosed in 4ppm but it ended up being over 8ppm. :o It's a pretty small tank anyways. I'll just dose in more once it's below 1ppm or so. It's not a while? I don't remember much from before, only that it only took around 4 weeks or so to complete in my 20G.

    Oh no, I wasn't saying you should age your water. I was simply saying that if the tank water hadn't been completely sealed in, the chlorine will evaporate through the day and night is all. And no the sponge wouldn't hold it in.

    Also you are doing a fish-less cycle? If so you can bump your ammonia up to 4ppm and it won't stall it, just don't go over 5ppm and you're good. And what do you mean it's taking a while? 2-3 days isn't a while
