  1. Hi. New here. Need advice on cleaning tank.

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello friends, I have recently bought my first beta fish about a week ago from this Friday. I have a 1 gallon "desktop" tank, with a filter and a heater. I'm aware the tank is small so I plan on upgrading in the future, I live in a dorm now so space is tight. I have talked to two people at the...

    Betta Chat
    :-) Impromptu purchase of fish today from Petsmart. New additions to the family to add to the goldfish and Monkey! One is a tiny, shy delta with a flesh-colored body and green/white splotched fins, named Labis- he's my sister's. The other is a spunky, big-boned flesh-colored veiltail with some...
  3. Depressed or is something wrong?

    Betta Fish Care
    Recently my betta fish got fin rot. I went to petco and was recommended to get a small bottle of bettafix for my fish. I asked if I could keep him in his 5 gallon tank while i treat him and she said yes. I used the whole bottle up for the required 7 days and nothing seemed to have changed and...
  4. Can I use a 25 watt heater to heat my 1 gallon tank?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    My 10 watt Aqueon heater is no longer keeping my betta's water at a good range, and it's not adjustable. So I'd like to invest in a new one, but I can't find any below 25 watts that are adjustable. I'm wary of getting another automatic heater because of my experience with this one. This one...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I recently just adopted a betta from my friend. She had it in a 2 gallon non filtered tank with a plant and a spongebob house. I have a one gallon under gravel tank with an air stone. I filled it with tap water and put in the recommended amount of conditioner for the water. I let it run for...

    Meet the Betta Keepers
    Hi everyone! My name is Rachel, I'm starting out as a pretty novice bettafish owner I had a couple of them before and have helped others out with theirs, thanks to the valuable information I have discovered on this forum. I have a little veiltail, his name is Xany (pronounced za-nee) short for...
  7. Ok to transfer betta to 10 gallon?

    Betta Fish Care
    I've had Mojo for about 3 weeks and during this time he's been in a one of those little betta tanks they sell at petco and I'm thinking I'd like to upgrade to a 10 gallon to make him more comfortable and give him some more space. This won't freak him out too much being quite a difference from...
  8. Betta QT tank to cold!

    Betta Fish Care
    My betta has severe fin rot so I moved him to a 1 gallon QT tank of bottled water. It got down to 72 or 73 now which is way to cold for a betta especially when he's trying to heal. The smallest heater that I have is 8 watts and it's for a 2-5 gallon tank. I'm really worried that if I put it...
  9. 1-2 gallon tanks/bowls

    Betta Pictures
    I have noticed for the time I have been on here there has been a constant heated debate about tank size - and do you know what that really causes? People who NEED our help to be deterred because they feel that they might be frowned upon by others. Why? Because in their time of need some people...
  10. My betta's tank is too cold? What can I do?

    Betta Fish Care
    I have a female beta in a 1.5 gallon filtered bowl. I know this is way too small so I'm upgrading to a 5 gallon but it's not ready yet. None of my betta tanks are heated because the texas summer kept them at 82-84 degrees all the time. A cold front came in yesterday and when I checked the...
  11. Returning Fin Rot

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I've been treating my betta, Sulu for fin Rot for 3-4 weeks now. He is in a 1 gallon heated hospital tank. He's very active and healthy seeming otherwise but every time that his tail shows white regrowth it eventually returns to its previous shredded state. His fins are also still very red and...

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi guys. Some of you might of read my Memorial for my recently lost fish Tengshugh (R.I.P). Well anyways, he liked his bowl, it hold about a liter. Yes I'm Canadian. That's about a quarter gallon. My new fish, P.K. Maurice (I gave him a full name. P.K. stands for Peter Kip) is much more active...

    Betta Fish Care
    OK, my mom bought me a 1 G Mini Bow tank yesterday as a post Christmas present to get me re-started on caring for bettas after a 2 yr hiatus of no pets. I took that opportunity, picked up the healthiest betta I could find at the store :shock: (Max) along with some extra supplies and went on...
  15. Aquarium Salt?

    Betta Fish Care
    I have read in many places that you can put a small amount of aquarium salt. I understand that it helps prevent disease. Just like if you gargle seawater if you have a sore throat. Well the reason for this thread is that I want to know how much salt do I put in 1 gallon and the right steps for...
