    My 38 Gallon Retreat

    Hi there! You could get a small plastic syringe from your drugstore to measure 5ml. Drugstores like Walgreens typically give them away free to their customers.

    Fishless Cycling Weird Foam

    Hi, welcome to Fishlore! That. Is. Odd. I have experienced a white film buildup when starting a new tank. Often it's the good bacteria (a "bacteria bloom") that gets a little crazy until the cycle stabilizes. It's a thin white surface film that can be broken easily with a finger or other water...

    Ghost Shrimp Picking At Betta Fins

    3.5 Gallon Uses And Betta Id

    You're welcome! Seachem Prime is the best water conditioner and dechlorinator, in my opinion. And that's good that you used the API quick start. The only way to tell if your tank is cycled is by testing the water. I recommend the Freshwater Master Test Kit. A tank is cycled when the tests...

    Hi and welcome to Fishlore! You've got a nice tank set up for your betta right now. He (or she!) has some growing to do, so you could concentrate on making the home as awesome as possible. For example, make sure that the tank is cycled. The nitrogen cycle is the most important aspect of fish...
