    Constant Glass surfing and activity.

    I have some plants in the back of the tank near the glass, but they aren't very tall and my bettas usually in the front. Edit: Sorry misread that, yes. I have a Squidward house in a corner. Then a piece of wood on the right side. Then just some small stuff around the middle.

    Constant Glass surfing and activity.

    I've had my Betta for around a month now, and I've noticed he is almost always moving around quickly and just seems skittish (He's always on the walls/glass surfing). I test the water weekly and change the water weekly as well. It's usually hard (High GH or KH I can't remember), but I've been...

    Cleaning/Water changes

    No, I added Tetra Safe start. There are no fish in the tank.

    Cleaning/Water changes

    I have a siphon if that counts and I probably should be adding a little more food. Thanks!

    Cleaning/Water changes

    I’ve had my tank set up for around two weeks. I’m cycling it right now. I’ve added Tetra SafeStart (yesterday), and I’ve been adding food to try to speed up the process. When I do water changes, the water still has a lot of food/nasties in it. I don’t know if the gravel is just good at hiding it...

    Hardness level

    I just tested my water for the second time, and I’ve been noticing my waters really hard (A high GH). (I am cycling my tank by the way). How can I lower this?

    Tetra Safe Start

    I just got a bottle of tetra safe start, it says it’s for 20 gallons. Should I add half? Also, should I test before or after I add it, how long does it take to work? Thanks!

    Air pump/stone

    I’m planning on getting a betta and a snail for my ten gallon tank. I am trying to cycle it right now, and I currently have: The filter, gravel, decor piece, heater and lighting. I am also planning on getting some live plants. Do I need an air pump/stone for a 10 gallon tank? Thanks!
