The GH and KH sound good.Ok tested twice using API GH KH test kit.
8 drops for GH -143.2 ppm according to their chart and 6 drops for KH - 107.4 ppm according to the chart.
I had taking under a half gallon of water out just by cleaning the debris snail poo sitting on the top of the substrate on Monday.
Sounds good! Thank you for the explanation. I applaud you and him for focusing on what is truly important. Not just the cheapest fish or the Bling...Yes I choose Franksbettas because of the health of his fish, I had heard nothing but good things when I was researching.
Some of the fish in my LFS are stunning but I cant deal with a fish that I will get attached to and have it live less then a year. I know many betta people consider it "rescuing" and giving the fish a good home for however long it has, but I have tried that route twice and would rather support someone who cares about the health of their fish and as a bonus their natural envirornment as well.
He is very, very much into conservation and breeds wild bettas to return to natural areas they have disappeared from. The wild types he sells are more then 8-10 generations removed from actual wild bettas.
I picked out a Betta one of the green Imbellis from the videos he sent me. He is about 4 months old. I am not sure how or even if i even can post a video on here. So I am just waiting for him to send a invoice and then i will finalize the purchase. I have contacted a transhipper as well.
