Ugh, sucks about the moss. More importantly how is Bettatastic doing with the temperature? Hopefully well.

Edit - you answered my question, duh.

Sad day, Mr. Bettastic passed away, I'm not sure if it was residual trauma from the heat spike or what. I check parameters, they were fine, temp was fine. He'd been lethargic for a few days so I checked everything, temp was a LITTLE higher than it had beem from the first few days of heat we've had, but nothing extreme for sure. He was very beautiful and died before his time. He will be missed.

The other sad thing about this is that it means I will be shutting down this tank now in preparation for the move in August I am downsizing my number of tanks (TEMPORARILY) I will set this one or the 10 back up after the move as a Betta tank because I love having a Betta! For now, RIP Bettastic and Tank!

Sad day, indeed! I am sorry to hear about Mr Bettastic. He was such a great guy, very beautiful and vibrant.

Thank you for the condolences, he will be sorely missed! As will this tank...it was the first tank I set up intentionally as a planted before I really knew what I was doing (inert gravel...silly me!) I am sure it's next incarnation will be even better and that much more fun now I know what I am doing (well....kind of anyway).

Thanks for all of the encouragement and advice along the way everyone! My little 5.5 and I will be back some time in the fall after the move
