    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hey there BettaFish Forum, I have completed my 10 gallon setup with 1 Male Betta, and a few other fish(1 black molly, 1 mystery snail and 4 panda cory catfish). It seems that my Betta is enjoying the tank leaving around bubble nests and swimming all around the tank, but my only concern is that...
  2. My Bettas keep eating my snails algae wafers

    Betta Fish Care
    I got 2 cute Nerite snails named Berry and Garry. I dropped in an algae wafer in each side (They are on each side of my divided 10gallon) But I noticed my Bettas started to go for the wafers. I watched them for a bit and realized they were picking at it and was eating the wafers and the snails...
  3. Can Nerite Snails have some AQ salt in the tank?

    Betta Fish Care
    So I have a 10gallon divided tank with 2 make Bettas. One of their tails looks "ripped". Someone said it was fin nipping and I was to add some AQ salt into the tank. I thought this was good as I was going to PetCo tomorrow to get some Nerite Snails. First question: Will the salt affect the...
  4. Can I put one nerite snail on each side of my divided 10gallon?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have a divided 10gallon tank with a male betta on each side. There is a lot of brown algae and I read that Nerite snails eat brown algae. I am aware that they won't live just off of the algae of course. Could I add one Nerite snail on each side? Will my Bettas mind?
  5. Brown algae everywhere?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So suddenly, lots of brown algae started to grow everywhere in my 10gallon divided tank. I have a male betta on each side. The gravel (mine is white) is being covered in brown and the plants and decorations are turning brown as well. I don't want to take everything out to clean again. Is there...
  6. Choosing a healthy Betta?

    Betta Fish Care
    So, I have a 10 gallon divided tank for two Bettas. I am planning to buy them tomorrow (Tank has already been filtered and set up, it's all ready!) I really want to buy two healthy males. I don't want one to be sick, and then get the other one sick as well. What should I look for in a...
  7. How would you evenly filter a 10 gallon tank divided into 3?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    *I'd like to apologize for many such a long post but if you do read it all, it's appreciated!* My three male bettas are currently in their own little homes but I wouldn't call them tanks, as they aren't properly a good tank. My CrownTail Male is in a flower vase that's about a gallon. My...

  11. Divider Issues

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hey all! :D I just bought a 10gal tank and divided it into 3 sections for 3 male bettas. The divider is sturdy and was homemade. The mesh is really thick i can barely see the outline of my own hand its that thick. Some how, there is maybe, 0.2cm of a gap between the tank and the divider and the...
