PH = 6.2 (Acidic)

If this matters at all...I don't use tap water when I change the tank. I use bottled water.
We've always look down on test strips for their inability to give accurate results but as expected, the bottled water would have those exact hardness levels. What about your ammonia?

In regards to the epsom salt how much do I put? The tank is 1 gallon...
I'd try one-fourth of the teaspoon.

I'm not sure about the ammonia. That wasn't apart of the test strips and unfortunetly I'm broke as of today so that'll have to wait. I did however upgrade her home yesterday to a 5 gallon tank, natural looking rocks and somewhere she can hide. She was kinda scared yesterday when we first put her in but I woke up this morning and checked on her and she was swimming everywhere. The tank has a heater (I noticed last night after I stuck my finger in her tank that it was FREEZING COLD which is the main reason why I got her the new tank), filter and all the nice stuff. She seems to be doing alright and is eating.

Question: I have canned peas...is that okie? My mom thought it was only frozen peas or fresh.

Thank you! :D
