  1. Is my 3 gal tank crowded?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello everyone! So I'm still relatively new to betta keeping and the forums. Currently I have a filtered 3 gallon tank. It's heated with one Anubias plant and Marimo moss ball, plus some silk leaves I let float at the surface. They sink after a while but my betta, Majora, likes using them as...

  3. 3 gallon tank..friends?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hi! I have had my male betta sam for about 7 months. He lives in a 3 gallon tank byhimself, and I was wondering that after he gets healthier, what kind of fish or water animals could he live with in the tank? I think he is pretty friendly... I am willing to upgrade to maybe a 5.5 gallon tank if...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello all! I recently got a new Betta Male last week, And bought him a 3 gallon tank, some silk plants, and am picking him up a heater today. I am curious as to what other fish/critters could I keep in that tank with him. He does have a filter, and I daily check the ammonia/nitrite/nitrate...
  5. Betta Tank Adjustment Question

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I have a male delta fin betta and he's ready for a new tank. I currently have him in a 2.5 gallon glass jar with a spigot at the bottom I use to remove old water. He seemed stressed when I put him in a 10gallon with a filter, so I am trying to keep water currents to a minimum. I am looking at a...
  6. Possible Cycle Problems?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi. I currently have a 3 gallon tank for my betta. He has a good filter, heater, and bubbler. I recently changed all the water out. I used to use drinking water from the store but i decided tap water would be cheaper. I've never had a problem with the drinking water before with water changes...
  7. Live plants to hide the heater?

    Planted Betta Tanks
    I have a small 3g tank with Loki, my Betta. The filter and heater are right next to each other in the corner, so I'm looking for a tallish type of plant (7-9" tall maybe) to hide at least the heater. I have a yard dirt substrate with gravel cap. Loki loves hanging out at the heater even...
  8. Is a 3 gallon suitable for a betta?

    Betta Fish Care
    I currently have a betta in a 10 gallon filtered and heated tank. Unfortunately, when I first bought him I was led to believe a 1 gallon tank would do… soon after realizing this wouldn't suffice I purchased a 3 gallon tetra cube aquarium "Kit". Unfortunately the lid doesn't even go on and the...
  9. Water change & bloodworm questions!

    Betta Fish Care
    Hey guys! Back again with a thousand more questions (okay, not a thousand, just a few.) I've read a lot of conflicting things all over the internet about water changes, including the tips on this forum, and I'm pretty confused about how often to change Gallifrey's water. He is in an...
  10. How to keep algae down?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I recently purchased a 3 gallon tank for my betta fish, Tater. Tater enjoys the space he gets in the tank as well as the numerous plants the tank contains. However, with the introduction of a new plant into the tank, I inadvertently introduced algae as well. The algae is really starting to take...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I have a 360 degree 3 gallon tank for my Betta. I really want to get him a little "Betta Bed" But I'm unsure if suction cups work on concave surfaces. Does anyone have an aquarium like mine and have trouble with suction cup accessories?
  12. 3 Gallon - Any Ideas?

    Other Fish
    Hi Guys - So after a good 3-4 months of educating myself on bettas after an x-mas present gone bad in December (unfortunately 2 bettas dead later from poor information from a petstore) , I wish I could retire the gift 3 gallon cylinder tank. Then again, it really is pretty, and looks great on...
  13. 2.5 to 3 gallon tank- best options?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I want to get preferably a 2.5 gallon, maybe 3, for my next betta. I'm looking online and see mixed reviews. So far, it appears that Fluval makes a good tank but nothing in the 2.5 or 3 range- only 1.5, 2 and larger than 3. Also, Aqueon Mini Bow and Tetra are options, as well as a basic 2.5 or 3...
  14. single male betta in 3.5 gallon tank, needs friends!!

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hey guys, I have one male betta (red delta tail if you're curious!) He's about a year old. I recently upgraded him from a 1.5 gallon tank to a 3.5 gallon tank and he adores it. Tons of swim room and he's soo happy, but the tank seems way too big for one single fish. I'm thinking he needs a...
