    How close is my tank to being fully cycled?

    I took it out when I was cleaning the intake valve of my filter, I kept it under running water for the couple of minutes while I was cleaning. That was a month or two ago though, I haven't touched the media since.

    How close is my tank to being fully cycled?

    PH is a steady 7.6 and no live plants. Just silk. For ammonia I've depending on leftover food(my bub is a bit picky, only SOME pellets are worthy of his stomach.) and his waste.

    How close is my tank to being fully cycled?

    I've had my single male Betta in a 10 gallon tank since September 1st. On September 1st I started up my filter and began my cycling process. Multiple times I screwed up the process, too large of water changes, adding ammonia remover, etc. For the past couple of weeks(no clue exactly how many :/)...

    My Bettas fins keep getting worse ):

    My Bettas fins keep getting worse ):

    I have my male rosepetal betta, Denali, in a 10 gallon tank by himself. I am currently in the process of filtering his tank and am a little more than halfway through I believe. I also do have live plants in his tank but they are dying I think so I'm thinking about removing them and switching to...

    Will I need to do a 100% water change?

    I currently have my male rose petal betta in a 10 gallon tank by himself. I switched him over from a 5 gallon maybe a week ago and did a complete water change(along with slowly acclimating him). I have been working on cycling his tank since September 1st and right his readings are all currently...

    Missing scales + possible fin rot?

    Yes it is. All plants are planted in the substrate. And 2 of the live plants I have came from the Betta Bulbs package I got at Petco so I'm not sure what type they are. Possibly Java Fern? And the 3rd one I also have no clue :/ I'm bad with plants.

    Missing scales + possible fin rot?

    I used a baggie to catch him, I tried to be quick to keep his stress to a minimum but he had none of it and I had to chase him around for a few minutes. He doesn't seem to have a preference on where he hangs out. I see him everywhere and he seems to spend no extra time in one spot, at least...

    Missing scales + possible fin rot?

    Yes i am using the same filter media. Should i change the filter media? Wouldn't this make my cycle restart? I will get some stress coat and will keep the water clean. His water is 82 degrees right now. Should i make it cooler? I heard making it around 75 helps kill the infection.

    Missing scales + possible fin rot?

    I have my male, rose petal betta in a 10 gallon tank. Two days ago I moved him from his old tank(about 5 gallons) to this 10 gallon as a way to spoil him. This move involved a full water change and giving him time to slowly adjust to the change in water parameters. I have all live plants. The...
