    Betta Fish Care
    I've recently purchased a new 3 gal tank and this is the first time my betta has been in one. I was wondering if there were any automatic heaters that changes the heating temperature depending on the room temperature. If you know anything about that, please let me know!
  3. 3gal Planted Tank PLAN

    Planted Betta Tanks
    Hello friends! For a little background: I got the betta bug in 2011. I dwindled out of the "hobby" ( I consider it more of a lifestyle :lol: ) in 2013 when I got majorly stressed out with high school. Long story short, the stressor has dissipated, and now I'm back! I've had live plants in...

  5. 3 gallon setup

    Betta Pictures
    Well fellow Betta lover's. I upgraded Cobalt's tank to this 3 gallon acrylic. I hate acrylic because it's incredibly easy to scratch, and very hard to take really good pic's. Anywho he looked pretty cramped in that one gallon bowl I had him in, and I didn't want him to have to stay in there...

    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.

  8. Any algae eating snails I could add?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I've had some algae in my 3 gallon. I'm honestly getting a bit tired of scraping it off hairgrass leaves. :-P I've read that mystery snails will help clean algae, but I'm a bit worried that they would also munch on my dwarf hairgrass. I've also seen people recommend nerite snails, but I haven't...

    I was given 3 gallon half moon tank by a friend, and I'm getting the AZOO Mignon Filter 60. It's also going to be planted I already have a light for it.

  13. Ammonia won't go down?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi Everyone, For a while now, my 3 gallon betta tank has been without a filter and recently had an ammonia spike (1ppm). I went to petsmart to ask on how to lower down the ammonia level and the person there told me that I was keeping my tank too clean. He said if I buy a filter and put it...
