New to the forum!

Hello everyone! I currently have two bettas, George and Prim. George is my lovely little Halfmoon. I've had him for 8 months, he is housed in a a 10g filtered and heated with a Endler. His tank is currently in the process of being remodeled! Unfortunately George suffers from chronic finrot, we are battling his 12th case. No matter how pristine his water is kept it keeps recurring. Prim I've had for 4 months, shes in a heated 2.5g. I've attempted keeping her in a comminty, but shes just too aggressive. Since she gets so stressed by filter flow I have to keep her tank unfiltered, so she gets frequent water changes. Other then that I have a 20g with 2 juvenile peacocks and a 50g community. Once I get rid of my Krib fry I plan to start breeding bettas. Can't wait to go explore the forum!!

Hello and welcome to the forum

We're glad you found us.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
