Questions About Methylene Blue:Tests/Long-Term?
I am currently using Fungus Eliminator and Methylene Blue to treat fin rot. This, of course, made my water a deep blue. How do I test the water (since that requires colour identification)?
Also, is Methylene Blue safe to use long-term, as a preventative measure? My betta seems prone to this fin rot, even with ideal water parameters. I am going to be moving him to a filtered tank and would like to do anything possible to prevent this from coming back.
I have a Red Sea Nano filter. It has a black spongie thing and a white spongie thing. Do I need to take either out, if I do use Methylene Blue? I read the back of the bottle, but I'm confused. I don't know if the black spongie thing would be considered bio-filtration (which MB is said to detrimentally affect).[/b]
