What am I missing? My first fish! [R]3 years, 3 months ago3zero1ne posted submission on bettafish.
Jan. 3, 2017
I've never had fish before but have always wanted one, and having received some Christmas cash I've decided to take the plunge (ha) and get a betta. I've done lots of research, but being a nervous mess I would really love it if you all could review my current plan and see if I'm missing anything important!
Tank: I have my eyes set on the Fluval Spec V as I like the built in filter (though I'll probably have to baffle it) and I don't really have space to go bigger than 5 gallons. I also plan on getting a heater, thermometer, and gravel for the bottom.
Plants: I was thinking of java fern and anubias, maybe a moss ball if I can find one. I really like the idea of live plants or do you think that's too complicated for a first timer?
Cycling: This is the part I'm finding most confusing - I'm going to do a fishless cycle. *Do I put my plants in right away?
*Is there anything I need for it apart from the ammonia and testing kit?
*This should take about a month right?
Other: What else would you recommend for a first time fish owner to make my life easier? I'm hoping that doing the cycle before getting the fish will let me "practice" having a tank and avoid future fish heartbreak.
Sorry for the wall of text, I'm going to the petstore tomorrow and just want to prepare myself as much as possible.

If you get the Fluvial Spec V, a baffle is a must! Reddit user /u/zeetu made a cool 3d printed one you can buy. Your local fish store will have some sponges you could zip tie together too.
Gravel cleaner, tank cleaner (to scrape the sides), water conditioner, net (in case you have to move your guy), bucket for water (large paint ones from home depot are great).
Personally, I like having a long pair of tweezers around so I can move stuff around the tank without getting my hands soaked.
I think the betta hammocks you can find in the betta fish section are great too. My dude only uses it when i'm around—otherwise he hangs out by the intake filter in my Fluvial Spec V :p
edit: some people don't like the 'hammocks' because they have a small metal wire in them. It's not too difficult to rip them out with a pair of pliers and razor blade if you're worried about that.

Get some of these. It will change your (planted tank) life! No more fat fingers trying to wedge delicate plant stems into the substrate! :)
Edit: not saying you have fat fingers, it just feels like my fingers are fat little sausages when trying to insert plants into substrate! ;3

Can you guys help a beginner (me) with setting up plants in a 10 gal tank that I'll be getting soon? [R]5 years, 9 months agoskrodladodd posted submission on PlantedTank.
June 24, 2014
I plan on making my 10 gal tank tropical and I have never worked with plants before and I am wondering what plants I could have and how I need to care for them.
June 24, 2014
The easiest way is to get your hard scape set up. This is the gravel, rocks, driftwood, etc. Anything not alive. Once you have your plan then you will plant the plants into the substrate. The easiest way I've found is by using a set of forceps.
Some plants don't need to be put in the substrate (Java fern, anubias) but rather tied onto things. For this you can use fishing line... Eventually the plants will attach to whatever you've tied it to and you can cut the fishing,line.
Dead plant matter [R]5 years, 9 months agoAlways_Daria posted submission on PlantedTank.

I have a 5gal fluval chi with dhg. In each bundle of hair grass there are a few pieces that are decaying and a few that seem to be thriving. My question is... What is the easiest way to remove the dead plant matter? This cube is also my shrimp tank. Thanks for any suggestions!
June 22, 2014
Yup, sure do. These are what I use. Less than $5 and work just fine :) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000T68ZUM/ref=ohdetailso09s02i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
[REQUEST] How to remove this tub stop [R]5 years, 10 months agozombicat posted submission on howto.
June 15, 2014
Tub is ridiculously backed up...I've watched tutorials on how to remove the top part by pulling up and turning counterclockwise, but when I try it, only the top silver part comes up and the black rubber part stays down and I cannot turn the silver part. Any suggestions before I resort to drain cleaner?
June 16, 2014
[This is the video] (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqTCZaB1VT0) my husband and I watched to figure out how to remove this kind of drain. BTW I hate these type of drains--they always get clogged. Why do they even make these?
Once you get the drain stopper out you can use one of these to get all the hair out. Or Home Depot sells disposable plastic drain snakes for under $3 that work well too. You will feel so much better when the drain isn't backing up!
How sensitive are primers to the oil on my fingers? [R]6 years, 1 month agoMarch 9, 2014
In was asking the owner of a local gun shop who's helped me through a few issues and he says that I should never touch my primers without gloves. I find it hard to believe that there's that much oil on my fingers.
Could this reply be the issue or do I need to look elsewhere.
Tips for Sand Aquarium [R]6 years, 8 months agosleepingdeep posted submission on Aquariums.
Aug. 14, 2013
I just started my fist tank with sand/soil substrate. I've only had gravel previously. How do you keep the sand from mixing up when adding water/plants? Do you have to keep adding sand? Thanks for any tips.
Aug. 14, 2013
yeah, go for it. what i do is put a plate in my aquarium and pour the water on it slowly. then it doesn't splash up the dirt/sand.
once the aquarium is full, when/if you vacuum the sand, just hover your vacuum right over the sand, it will pull up the fish poop but leave your sand alone. there may be some sand pulled into your bucket, but it is what it is.
when planting, get yourself a nice set of long tweezers off amazon.
like these!! it helps keep the substrate from being churned up, and it makes it so much neater and easier to plant stems deep.
