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.

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.

My family is going to Detroit on Saturday and I get to go to Petco!

Does anyone know how much the female bettas are there off the top of their head?

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.
