    I want to get an upgrade for my betta (currently living in an unfiltered 2.5 because NONE of the filters meant for 2.5 gallons seem to fit with the tank shape he has or work properly) I've found good looking heaters and filters for a 10 gallon, just not a good 10 gallon itself I'm looking to get...

    Hello! I have had my betta for about 3 months. He was always very active and social, he would always swim around the tank whenever there was someone in the room -- he just didn't seem to be afraid of us or anyone. Within the past few weeks, he has been hiding in the house that is in his tank. He...

    I installed my heater earlier and I have two thermometers (just in case) in a 10g tank with Toby the Koi Betta. I am using a 50w heater set at 78 and the thermometers are saying the temp of my room (66-68). The heater has been in for about 30 minutes and nothing has changed, does anybody know if...

    I'm planning on moving one of my bettas to a 10 gallon tank I bought a while back and I have a heater that works but I'd like the tank to be more evenly heated. I have two 7.5 watt heaters and I was wondering if putting one on each side of the tank would work?

    Currently I have two bettas, each in their own 2.5 gal tanks with heaters. While I was home for the xmas holiday my dad found my old 10 gal tank in the attic.

    I got a free, used 10 gallon tank. :-D I'm going to divide it for my 3 bettas. I'm wondering about a few things. I bought a Whisper 10i filter. I'm going to make my own dividers with the plastic canvas/craft mesh so I'll only need one filter. I'm planning on putting the filter on the side where...
