  1. Very nice to read a log. Keep on logging!
  2. Thats fantastic! When my class got a goldfish (in a bowl ) they all just stared at it and tapped the glass. Until someone idiot, I mean person, put Germ-X in the water.
  3. I love nano tanks! My newest infatuation!
  4. "Fish are stupid." "That is the biggest waste of money I have ever seen." "Why not get a real pet?" *facedesk*
  5. Thanks I'll look into the AquaClears. Yes, I've cycled my betta tank. I don't think I can seed it with what I have now (I need to get rid of everything), so I will probably just have to cycle it the old fashioned way.
  6. So, the title made no sense...XD Anyway, I'm moving to Atlanta which is 2,000 miles away from where I am. I cannot take Herobrine (my betta), or my tank. That really, really, bums me out. I will have to sell both. I'm probably going to cry = (. But, I have done my math, and turns out I can afford a goldfish tank. I spent $50 on plants and substrate and $15 for a heater. I'm not getting either of those (maybe some sprigs of Anarchis [sp?] or hornwort), and I'm going bare bottom. Thats $65 dollars less (I can do math!), and although I need a bigger tank, and a bigger-er filter, I can fit it in with the money I am selling my tank. That thrills the heck out of me . So, I am very slighly experienced and is moving on to goldfish. Will there be a drastic increase between difficulty if I was just on a betta? I know bubble-eyed and celestials are oober sensitive, but what about telescopes? I love telescopes, and moors too. Are they a good starter? Or an oranda? Pretty adorable, but I do prefer telescopes. I'm guessing pearscales are hard, a shame since they are so danged cute. Another thing is, that I need a good filter reccomended to me. I read the boxes carefully, and I am having a hard time finding the right GPH. It's 10x the water volume for normal fish,and 20x for goldies? I am getting a 20 gallon (of course.) and I've looked at a filter for a 75 gallon that does only 310 GPH, which is kinda sad (anyone know why the GPH on filters is so small?) Canisters frighten me, and I don't think I can afford it. Thanks for enduring my questions I'm not sure this is in the right section, I'm sorry if it's not.
  7. OK, and also (sorry for the many questions), how is Prime dosed? As in, how many drops/ml to how much water? I'm only changing 3 gallons, I don't want 10 gallons worth of conditioner in each gallon. Do I just divide? ^_^"
  8. Excellent, thanks so much. I'll try to pester my parents to taking me to my LFS. Is there a safe way of lower my pH? Just a little, I want to keep it above 7 for my snail.
  9. No, I dosed ammonia in the tank while cycling, and a couple hours later there was no ammonia or nitrite just a lot of nitrate.
  10. [*]Test Results for the Following: [*]Ammonia Level? .1-.25, I can't tell! [*]Nitrite Level? 0 ppm [*]Nitrate level? 20-30 ppm, I can't tell! [*]Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines)? pH is 8.0 [*]Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines)? 8.0 [*]Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? Drops, API Testmaster [*]Water temperature? 80F [*]Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 6.6 gallon, running for three weeks. [*]What is the name and size of the filter(s)? No name, but it only does 45 gph at most, I have it a low setting, so Herobrine won't get blown all over the place. I did my 50% water change yesterday, and so so foolishly, I rinsed my pre-filter sponge and my filter media. I didn't use tap water, I used old tank water. My tank has had ammonia and that's why I have been doing 50% WC every third day or so. It was getting better, the fog at the top of the tank was getting thinner, and my little sweet was active and gluttonus as ever. I did cycle, with pure ammonia for 29 days. It didn't complete for some reason, So I still have ammonia in my tank. Today Herobrine was inacitive and laying at the bottom. He was still eating very well. I am so worried! I don't care if I have to do a 50% water change at this hour, I just want him OK. What do I do?! [*]How often do you change the water and how much? I did a 50% water change yesterday. [*]How many fish in the tank and their size? A betta, 4 ghost shrimp and a mystery snail. [*]What kind of water additives or conditioners? Only water conditioner. [*]What do you feed your fish and how often? Hikari biogold, twice a day. [*]Any new fish added to the tank? No. [*]Any medications added to the tank? No. [*]Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Yes, his 'face' is whitening! His fins are getting very very very faintly frayed. [*]Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc. Yes, he was very inactive today! He was was staying at the bottom a lot!
