Why not just do a water change to be safe.

And now, because the cat "missed" her litter box as I was standing less than a foot away working on the 30, it's time to change litter instead of water... Stupid cat.
Cat was jealous lol my dog acts up if I don't pay enough attn to her when i'm doing a wc or whatever. Silly animals!

I came across a similar deal todayAquarium Plants - Java Ferns, by the time I caught up with him, He only had 2.5 bags left. some of the plant had wilted because he left them in his car all day. What little water that was in the bag was hot to the point of it being uncomfortable to touch. I still salvaged a great deal of it.

My betta is also My New Best Friend. Last week I swapped him from my Daughters tank, And he watches me more than I watch Him.

I got a new Marineland emperor 400 and some pool filter sand. I also added some peat moss to my filter media basket to help lower my pH. The sand has clouded up my water column. Should I run the filters to clear it up or let it stand with the filters off for a little while?

did you rinse it out really good? I would let it settle for a lil bit and then run your filter. so it doesnt tear it up.

I thought I rinsed it really well. Apparently I did not do it nearly as well as I should have. I left the filters off for about 30 mins and then turned them on for 10 and now I'll leave them off for another 45. The water is starting to look a little better.
