  15. i have a hood just to be safe i had a goldfish once that jump out of the aquarium through the filter hole. poor fish but he was a comet. and swam fast my telescopes dont swim as fast as he did . i also have a twenty nine gallon now instead of a ten gallon. i felt sorry because at the time i was unaware of proper tank size.i haD GOT HIM FROM A FAIR AND HES WAS QUITE BIG so i learned comets need large swimming space. give them that and they will be fine.

I also salted the tank to 1 % and I wil keep the tank salted and medicated until he looks normal than i will obesrve him for A week than put back in his tank. /he has been acting normal but he had white on the tips of his fins and they were frayed. i have been watching the betta but the beta doesnt np at his fins I will have a picture up by tommorrow. sorry for the late feed back. was about to post yesterday but halfway thru my post my internet closed on me.

  20. my amonia is zero i need to test for the rest though. I use mardel constant amonia monitor. I wll so get an api drop test kit. the water temprreture is 74 to 75 degrees, the quarrantine tank tempreture is 76-77 degrees to help kll the rot. the tank size is 29 gallons its been runniing for about a little over two and a half months. i got both of my telescope and my moor the day afteri got the tank running. my parents suprised me with the fish. Knowing about cycleing I did water changes every other day for a month. My parents got me the fish as an. Easter gift.i was afraid of toxi amonia levels so thus the constant water changes. I have two aqua-tech 40 gallon filters. I do a fifty % water change every five days. my last water change was three days ago before i put the black moor in the quarantine tank and it waas fifty%. two days ag i did a twenty fivve % water cnge on my quarantine tank i have to do my water changees evry five days due to the medicines directtions. I have one two inch black moor and one two inch calicoo telescope i also have one small male betta which isnt that agressive problably becaue ave silk and real plants and piece of drift wood that is hollow on its bottom so it makes a good cave for him. I use api water conditioner. feed my fish two small amounts a day of tetra fin plus goldfish flakes. betta eats top fin betta food. i feed them frze dried boood worms as treat on acasion.
