    Entire Bottle Of Tss???

    Thank you everyone for your help! One last question (that I can't recall if it was answered or mentioned in the Q&A for TSS). Can I add the TSS+ in a tank that already has a fish in it? I need to set up my 10-gallon tank and add my betta in it (advice from my other thread).

    Entire Bottle Of Tss???

    What is the stated amount? The instructions state to add entire bottle to aquariums up to 100 gallons. Are you talking about for healthy maintenance (add 5ml for every 10 gallons when adding fish or water changes, etc)?

    Entire Bottle Of Tss???

    Risk what? Dumping the whole thing? Or just 1/3 to 1/2 a bottle? I will be having a betta in the tank.

    Entire Bottle Of Tss???

    I was thinking of purchasing separate bottles, but I was going to set-up the tanks at relatively the same time (maybe a week apart). Thank you for the advice. Might go back and get two smaller bottles. The only problem is that the only petco on the island that sells it is a good 45min-1hour...

    Entire Bottle Of Tss???

    Thank you so much for answering!!!! That was what I was thinking but wanted to make sure with the experts. If I only use 1/2 the bottle for the 10-gallon, will the remaining 1/2 be enough for the 30-gallon?

    Entire Bottle Of Tss???

    I have looked everywhere and cannot find the answer to my question. 8.45oz of TSS+ (treats up to 500 gallons) 10-gallon tank Do I really put the whole bottle in the tank of that size? The reason why I purchased the largest bottle is because I wanted to start-up multiple tanks. I have 2...

    Help! I'm Not Too Sure What Is Wrong With My Betta :(

    Thank you all so much for your help! I will be setting back up his 10-gallon tank today. I think I might have figured out what caused his decline and hoping the new set-up will be better (I think it was the fluctuating temperatures). The weird thing is, my next door neighbor (classroom next to...

    Help! I'm Not Too Sure What Is Wrong With My Betta :(

    As I mentioned for the reason of the small tank, it is so that water changes will be more manageable. I normally do a 25% water change but since he had popeye, changing 50% of a 10-gallon tank every day takes a lot of time, which I don't have (I am a teacher). This tank is not at home, it is at...

    Help! I'm Not Too Sure What Is Wrong With My Betta :(

    Thank you all so much for your help and advice! This is the first time that I am having trouble with keeping a fish. One thing that crossed my mind is does he have velvet? I know the signs are a gold dusting but I can't really tell if he does. Will the dusting be really noticeable or is it...

    Help! I'm Not Too Sure What Is Wrong With My Betta :(

    I have noticed that his fins were starting to look a little weird (can't remember if it always looked that way). The eyes have started to look a little better (I think), but his body and fin started to look strange (?). I was thinking that he might have fin rot as well, but based on research...

    Help! I'm Not Too Sure What Is Wrong With My Betta :(

    Should I wait for the cycle to complete before adding the meds? Is re-medication required after the water change? To make sure I'm understanding this. 1. Start the tank all over with brand new conditioned water, salt, and plants. 2. Wait for cycle to complete. 3. Add meds and air stone. 4. Add...

    Help! I'm Not Too Sure What Is Wrong With My Betta :(

    @Adriifu I did have plants in his normal tank. In addition to the water change, I also gravel vacuumed. My filter doesn't have carbon. Do I just follow the directions on the aquarium salt (Petco carries the API one)? I do use Prime. Will look into the 2 medications you recommended. Thanks for...

    Help! I'm Not Too Sure What Is Wrong With My Betta :(

    His normal tank was a 10-gallon. I do have a test kit (API Master Freshwater). I was doing 50% water changes weekly. No tankmates. I don't think I need a heater as I live in Hawaii and the temperature runs between 75-78.5F. When I came into work 10/9, did a water test and it was 0.25 ammonia...

    Help! I'm Not Too Sure What Is Wrong With My Betta :(

    I do daily water changes so I don't see the need to have the container cycled. :emoji_confused: Unless I'm wrong about that?

    Help! I'm Not Too Sure What Is Wrong With My Betta :(

    Attached are pictures of my Betta. When I went into work last Monday, it looked like he had cloudy eyes. Brought him home to treat him since school is on fall break. I have him in a small container doing either daily or twice daily water changes. Been doing it for a week now and I have noticed...
