    Freeze Dried Food Bad For Betta's ??

    Just soak them first. Some fresh garlic juice is good to soak in. Freeze dried seems to expand once they eat it and could cause bloat.

    12 Weeks No Nitrite Or Nitrate

    I don't think adding two more will make it crazy. Just keep an ion things because it's very stressful for fish with ammonia and the cycle process

    12 Weeks No Nitrite Or Nitrate

    Sounds like it's still in the beginning stages of cycling. Minnows don't give off too much ammonia so it might take more time. I've seen it take up to seven or eight weeks went cycling with us. Good luck

    I've never tested our tapwater, but it is well water, and I just make sure I acclimate them over a longer period of time. And I agree, lots and lots of hiding spots and overstocking helps keep the aggression down to just one or two. My favorite kind of tank!

    Tap Water Has High Nitrates

    Once the tank has cycled properly, the nitrates will be more controlled as it will be used for the food to keep the bacteria going. Once it's fully cycled , The tank should have no problem processing 40 ppm of nitrates provided you're not overstocking or over feeding
