I have a 10 gallon betta tank with one male in it and is planted. It has a ph of 7.0, Gh at 180 and KH of 40. The Nitrate and Nitrite levels are low so not concerned on that. I am planning on adding neon tetras once I can determine if what I have found in my most recent water test are safe. Any thoughts?

If you’re getting a nitrite reading, your tank isn’t fully cycled.

What exactly is the nitrite level and have you tested for ammonia?

The nitrite levels are 0 and looking at ammonia soon so once I get that I should have a better picture

By the way, welcome to Fishlore!

When you test the ammonia, please post the actual test results. It’s hard to pinpoint a water parameter issue when folks use words like “low”.

Hey just got my test kit for ammonia and tested it to find that it is 0 ppm. so I suppose that is good for the betta. Actually, for pretty much any fish

And what are the nitrite and nitrate levels today?
