He's in epsom and aquarium.
He's been with me a month, was crazy active all the time. Then all of a sudden, 2 days ago he started swimming lopsided (so I fasted him), then yesterday all downhill and I moved him to the 2.5 gallon, today the salts.
Sakura was the one that said it could be the parasites.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

I wonder if I should try a dwarf puffer... or if they need bigger than a 10, and if they will eat shrimp. I have 5 ladies, and I'm not sure how many are carrying.
Dwarf puffers are fine in a 5 gallon. For your snails? They'd love the snails. But they'd eat the baby shrimp. Some eat adult shrimp, but other people keep them with shrimp no problem, so that's a gamble. I wouldn't risk your shrimpies for one.

aaaahhh i cant wait for my plants to fill in more
worried about the hair grass, but hopeful that sun shining in on it will help, along with the tank light

ahhh. it's looking great though


Depends on the tail, Jupiter. My female VTs were like 2.39, and my crown tail was closer to 3 or 3.50

Jupiter, they're usually no more than $5 at the very most. Most of the time, like $3.

I'll give you a gold star if you can eat a single Balut.

Check this thread out if you want a betta to cuddle with you. This is Jrf456's thread.
