My betta's fin ripped, I have one plastic plant in there which must be the culprit, I did the nylon test and they didn'n run or snag but his fins must be more delicate than my nylons. So my question is, How do you get their fihs to re-grow?

AQ salt can help. Use 1 tsp per 1 gallon, and put your betta in there for no more than 14 days.

I am going on vacation for 5 days soon, and I think I have someone to leave my betta with. He will be in a 1 gallon bowl, as we have not got his tank yet. I know bettas can survive for long periods of time without food, but I REALLY don't want to deprive him of food. He's a pig, lol. And whenever I feed him he gets so excited that he jumps before I can drop the food in. However, I don't have anyone to change the water...and I know he cannot afford an ammonia buildup in that bowl. I am planning on changing his water immidiately before I leave, and as soon as I get back... but I have heard that feeding betta's causes ammonia to build up faster. My real question is, if I have him fed only 2 pellets a day while I am gone, should this be okay? I don't want him hungry and I want his water to stay clear while I am gone. Thanks

I am super new here and I have no idea about that sort of stuff but I bet there is someone on here who could watch your betta while you are gone! Just a suggestion :3

He should be fine for 5 days, without food and WCs.

Finally got dividers set up...I couldn't find those report covers (I don't think they make them anymore?). I checked 5 stores with stationary and two dollar stores :(

In the end I picked up some stainless steel paper holders (I made sure to check/ask if they were stainless steel) and have 3 on each side, 6 total holding it up. I adjusted them so that they're nice and snug.

I was just wondering how long will Lelouch and MeiLin harass each other through the divider? MeiLin doesn't really seem to care, she just kind of trolls Lelouch, and in turn he starts flaring at her.

Keeping three eyes on them just in case...

Upon observation, you can't really see through the divider, but you can most definitely see movement and anything high contrast

I know, I am just asking if it is actually dangerous for me to have him fed 2 pellets a day while I'm gone (in regards to ammonia buildup). I just don't really have the heart to leave him hungry for 5 days.. but if I absolutely have to, I guess I could.

Query: How should I split my tanks? Right now it is:

[empty/male] [male/female]

Should I put my two males together instead? Or leave them as is?
