I did a water test on the cup from petco that held the other Betta my sister got me. Unfortunately he did not survive the night in his hospital tank.

This photo was taken immediately after shaking for five seconds. I didn’t even have to wait the five minutes to get a reading. It is a solid 8.0 ppm ammonia. I was horrified.

Anyone who keeps their bettas in bowls can not say their bettas water is clean unless you have done a water test. Just because your water looks clear does not mean it is safe for your fish. Invisible assassins lurk in bowls and tiny tanks.
