20 gallon tank

  1. 20 Gallon water questions?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    My 20 gallon divided mini mansion for the two males I'm planning to get. It's the most space I've given just bettas! (They'll be spoiled rotten.) Quick question though, how long can I get the water to sit uninhabited and still be suitable for use before having actual fish inside? (I've treated...
  2. Aqueon lighting question

    Planted Betta Tanks
    I have a question about the deluxe aqueon flourescent 24 in. Hood. It is 15 watts and is full spectrum. It would be used for a 20 gallon high, would this setup be sufficient for some low light plant such as anubias, water wisteria, java fern and anacharis? I assume yes, it will work, but I...
  3. Dividing a 20g Tank

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I decided to acquire and divide a 20 gallon tank in order to properly house my 3 male bettas, because taking care of their individual tanks is really becoming a pain. This will provide each of them with more overall space, and help me retain my sanity, plus be more compact for when I move into...
  4. Good plants for a 20 gallon sorority?

  5. Fish for my 20 gallon

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have a 20 gallon tank which I am going to stock with my male betta and 4-6 cories. I would really like to have a few more fish though to add a little more excitement to the tank. What fish, if any, could live peacefully in a 20 gallon with a betta and cories? I don't want there to be any...
  6. Stocking my 20 gallon

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I am starting a 20 gallon tank which will hold my male betta and 4 cories. My dad keeps telling me that it will look empty, but I don't want to stress my betta out by adding potentially mean fish or overstock the tank. Would it be a good idea to add more fish and if so what kind of fish should...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Tank specs: 20g high Filters: Top Fin 20 & Aqueon QuietFlow 10 Fish: 5 female bettas 6 Albino corydoras Am I stocked? If I add neon tetras, 5 would probably be my limit. Is 5 too small a number? Any other fish suggestions? I was also considering a snail or 2.
  8. My Betta Sorority

    Betta Pictures
    I have some pictures, but the videos came out better. This is my betta sorority 1 week in. Since this was taken, one of the bettas from the first half of the video has been re-added. She was sick, but is now healthy and happy. The blue one, Toothless(Her face reminds me of the dragon, of the...
  9. Another nut starting a sorority..

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So, I'm fishless cycling this 20 gallon tank right now. I love bettas, and have seen videos, and heard that it's possible to have sororities. What I DIDN'T that I'm probably making a huge mistake. Unfortunately, I didn't start reading the actual experiences of other people until AFTER...
