  1. tank mates with a very curious betta

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have a ten gallon planted tank (with more plants on the way) and I'm thinking of getting some dainty cory cats as tank mates because my LFS has them in stock. I've never had a community tank with a betta before. My dad used to have a community saltwater tank with an unkillable and kinda rude...
  2. Upgrading to 10g. Can I use 2 smaller filters instead of 1 larger one?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    My lil Marco has been happily living in his cycled 2.5 gallon tank for about 3 weeks now without any signs of stress. As it turns out, my parents have actually grown super attached to him now despite their earlier reluctance and have even suggested a bigger tank for him (I'm all for it). After...
  3. Are my boys sick?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi all. I posted on another forum and got no response and it's kind of an emergency... My two boys pinky and George are not feeling well. After I did a water change yesterday, they were both acting pretty strangely. Over the course of the evening, they both seemed to be acting sick. Both were on...
  4. 10 gallons, 2 filters?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello all! I've had my betta, Pastel, in a 5 gallon since I got him nearly 3 months ago. Today my father offered to buy me a 10 gallon (yay :-) ) and we picked up the Glofish 10 Gallon Aquarium Kit. It comes with a Whisper 2-10 internal filter, and dad insisted that I have 2 of them and bought...
  5. Probably a silly question.

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hi all. Been a nog time since I've posted but I had a compatibility question. I've recently set up a divided 10gal tank for my bettas Romulus and Remus and I was wondering if I could add a mystery snail to this? I've had one in the past and I'd love to have another but I don't think my oscar...
  6. Filter Question!

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I recently came into a used 10 gallon tank. Hood was dented and covered in algae, as was the filter. Pulled everything apart and scrubbed it good (no soap). The tank had previously been used with live plants and gravel (nasty to clean up after, it was filled with little snail and shrimp...

  8. Heaters?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Well for some weird reason Arizona has gotten pretty cold. It probably will warm back up soon but I should get a few heaters. So.... What heater should I get for my 10 gallon tanks (I have two of them)? I saw one at Petco for 2-10 gallons. Will that be okay? And I have one tank that I don't know...
  9. A couple questions about transport

    Betta Fish Care
    I recently started college, and when I found out we were allowed to keep fish in our dorms, I decided it'd be a nice hobby for me. I did originally make the all too common mistake of doing very little research on betta care and had my betta, Pancakes, in a bowl. However when I did more research...
  10. 10g vs 20g betta sorority

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hi, In a couple of months (after I've moved) I plan on starting a betta sorority. I have a planted 10 gallon with no fish and an empty 20 gallon. It would be quite easy for me to transfer the plants to the 20 gallon if needed. I was wondering, from peoples' experience, what would be the better...
