so I came home from work today and my 5 Gal
tank was cloudy/sludgy, the guy at petco said not to freak out because it would do this, but I kinda freaked out haha but remembering what he said I didn't do anything stupid rapidly. I tested the water, and these are the results I got for the most part, the strips were kinda hard to read.
Ammonia was between 0 and 0.25
nitrate was 0-.5
nitrite was 0
hardness was soft at 75
this is where the colors got kinda hard to read, but I believe the PH was between 6.8-7.2 and the Alkalinity was between 80-180.
I just got another 1.5 Gal
tank to separate the red aggressive female beta by herself, I have a fitler set up and running and have dechorlinated the water as well as added the bacteria in a bottle, Now my next questions are is that if I need to cycle a tank for just a single beta or if I can introduce the fish and do a fish in cycle?
Also, do I need to do a 25% water change on the 5 gal
tank that's cloudy?
