It's basically a picture with captions / basic manipulation sharing app. Kind of a twitter with pictures instead of snippets.

Okay, thanks for explaining. I looked at the app, but wasn't sure.

what i do when i ship bettas, is put a drop of Prime in the bag. it binds out NH3 for 24-48 hours, so usually there is 0 NH3 when the fish arrives. i will also add a drop upon first opening a bag of a fish shipped to me, to neutralize any NH3 that may have accumulated so the poisoning stops instantly, and not 40 min later when i finish acclimating.

Oh? Maybe that is why he was so small compared to his spawn sisters?!? Parasites.

He had all the classic signs -- gasping, red streaks, darting about, paleness etc -- I did put Prime in, but after I cut the bag open,so maybe it was too late?

The red streaks weren't until much much later.

My pH is 7.5 -8.0 and I stupidly didn't check his water parameters when I opened his bag, I was just concerned w getting him some Prime and cleaner water.

Happily my drip acclimation of my female betta seems to be very successful!

She is astounded by the enormous size of her 5.5 gallon tank (more like 3 bc it doesn't have a lid yet and she can jump pretty well).

Frank, the tank is looking great! I love the little recess from the plants in the center front, it gives us a nice look at the white sand.

I love those M.D. Kubotai, I think they'd be very neat in my Mini S -- could you PM me your source?

The only small thing about this journal/guide that I do not particularly love is the photography. I think that some really high quality photos would make the journal/guide that much better!

ACT 1 of the thread now digitally remastered in eBook format!

Cryptkeeper54 converted the first segment of the thread into digital eBook format, which you can view here.

There's a nice surprise at the end - the final HD photograph of the first layout, which hasn't been published in the thread.

Other minor updates - the table of contents works again and the new table of contents has been updated.

Holy Batman, you have been up to some serious work. Its great that you revamped the table of contents. You should treat yourself to a vacation to Hawaii...... and while you are here you might as well do a seminar on planted tanks
