I guess you like it as you are getting some more.... what are the best features of it....does it get mushy or silty quickly?

~~~
Did pwc on TT tank and SW, hoping for the other 2 tanks too but not sure I will have time!

I like it. It does get mushy but really only on the very bottom. An I meant those white pebbles don't come in the fluval stratum. It just accidentally got mixed up, when I was cleaning it. Got too lazy to take out every single one lol 😆

Well I did a 30% pwc and added salt. I should be adding new fish soon and I can't wait to show you guys. I took my heater out and scrubbed it well to get off what I believe was fin rot gunk (had an infection a short while ago) and algae. Also, I scrubbed the tank down and cleaned it up a bit. Put in my conditioner and all. Took pictures and video of my fish, too. Haha.

Stared at the Betta lol

He's in quarantine for tattered fins, but the more I watch him, the more I think it's self-induced from squeezing in where he shouldn't fit

He doesn't seem worse the wear for itClick image for larger version

Today I finally found a Freshwater Master Test kit at my LFS...turns out I was just looking in the wrong section. Silly me . I also managed to get myself ten bucks of tank decorations free along with the Freshwater Master Kit due to having a 10$ off coupon on me. It's a shame the coupon only works so long as you are getting 50$ or more of stuff but I found it useful in this case. Buck, my betta, is going to have quite a variety of things to occupy himself with.

I managed to get to the LFS just as they were feeding their stock so I managed to while away 30-40 minutes just watching as a large variety of the fish ate. Since I only got a betta currently, and had a wider variety of fish when I was younger, I ended up experiencing a nostalgia blast I wasn't prepared for. It also allowed me to figure out just how much the employees know about what their doing and I was pretty satisfied with what I heard and saw from them since as they were feeding I noticed they were examining the fish for sickness and stress signs.

When I got back to dorm, I went through the process of testing my Betta's water. Overall results were pretty good, with pH being a little high (7.4) but not too much so. Ammonia is a little higher (0.25 ppm) than I would like so I am doing a partial water change tomorrow to see if that doesn't help it lower some. Other than that, everything was all good, Nitrites and Nitrates both coming out as 0 ppm, so I'm pretty happy. I'm not all that surprised since the tank my Betta is in has been cycling for three weeks now and should be almost through the cycle, hopefully.
