That won't work very well. .75 is still high and more harmful to your fish than what ever petsmarts conditions are in. Hold off the on the betta from petsmart right until your ammonia reads 0

You’ll need to be doing daily water changes if you don’t have an established tank.

Do you think your doing the right thing by rescuing a fish at a Petsmart vs putting a fish into a tank that isn’t cycled? A lot of things can go wrong, especially if a tank isn’t set up.

If you can try to wait it out great but if your really need to do what you think is right I commend you for your efforts.

How much water?

I understand. That's why I'm holding off getting shrimp until it is cycled. I just want to either get a betta out of those community tanks where their fins are getting nipped, or out of that stupid cup.
