Umm....don't put any salt. What you want the salt for? GEX soil helps you balance up already. Remember 1ft tank is very sensitive tank. Little bit, parameters is going to go way off.

Hi boss, not putting salt into my aquarium... im thinking of getting rid of those snail eggs before putting inside aquarium.. dun mistaken haha

Hmm.....actually hor, if you mean to kena, it will kena. Even if you use hand to wash. Sometimes, I end up doing snail catching cycles. Nowadays, I basically get no more snails inside, no introduction, no snails.

I remember I got a pack for $1 from AquaStar before. Hardly use it though. Lol...snail catching best method is still by hands. Phew....the experience is back breaking....must be age.

Anyway, hope you are successful with your tank. How many fish you intend to introduce?

Hmm....black water for betta?

Another name for betta is Siamese fighting fish. Black water is more for Amazonia fishes. Most betta are farm breed or shop breed.

Azoo has a product call Double Black Water. The purpose is to soften the water. It is meant for South Amercia fishes, but also mimicks the water condition of Tropical areas. 500ml should be around $13.30 or so. Enough to last you for a long time. 500ml you imagine a small bottle of mineral water, roughly that size. 500g.

It is sold in most LFS. If not you check out Polyart, AquaStar, That Aquarium, Clementi Flourist, etc. They should carry them.

No worries, it is when it breaks down, that's the problem. So I use lazy man solution instead. Lazy man solution should be applied with wisdom. Hee Hee. You are not alone. Although I sound contradicting myself sometimes.
