  1. Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I just changed to a bigger bowl and I would like to know if the way it is set up is okay. I will add pictures for reference. One of my concerns/questions is his breathing. Now that the bowl is taller than the old one he has to swim higher to get air, is that normal/okay? Second question is, when...

    I can't seem to get my grassy (plastic) plant to stay down... Is it okay that it is floating? My tank is only 1 gallon. I'm new to the Betta world and want the best for my fish

    Hello all! I am looking for advice on how I can improve my current tank. After getting my first betta in November, I fell in love with his personality, curiosity, and excitement every time he would see me come home. After doing some research, I realized how cruel it was to keep him in a 1...

    Hello all~ While I can't afford the pretty decorations I want, I was looking to get some more hiding things for my betta. That way I can cycle between his (bulky, ugly) log decor and other decor, and keep things interesting. Lately he seems to get his entertainment solely by watching me...
  5. Betta Fish Marketplace
    Hi, I am going toward more shrimps and real plants than fish and plastic plants in the future. So I want to sell some of my setup, livestock and accessories below. So I will have money to invest in the stuff that I want. Everything is for local pick up only at la puente, ca. I will not ship...

    Background: So my aunt was a marine biologist. She died a few years ago from MS, but her husband wasn't ready to give anything away until recently. So he gave me her 35 gallon hexagon tank and a bunch of supplies, including lots of old filters. I think she kept everything really neat, but after...

    I just got a king betta fish and want to know if and what kind of leaf hammock can support their girth?

    I read somewhere that paint on fish accessories can bubble up over time and float in the tank I just bought the Penn Plax Enchanted Castle Aquarium before I read it. Will it be safe? I don't want my little Gyarados to die. :(

    I just noticed that my betta hammock has a copper color in the end, and the wire in it also looks rusted at the very end (when I bought it the leaf was fully green). The water in the tank is fine, but should I throw it away just in case the rust leaks into the water?

    I just received the Eheim Jäger heater which I'm going to use in my temporary tank, then later in a permanent 5 gallon. I was just wondering how well this heater works. I read the reviews and they were very positive, I just wanted some more information from some professionals :-D

    I'm a new betta owner, and I have him for about one week so far. I recently received my orders of silk plants and cave from Amazon for him. I put them next to his bowl, so he can see them. I didn't place them in yet because I still need to get gravel. Ever since I put his new accessories near...

    Besides pingpong balls (my boy doesn't like them), mirrors (I just hold up my compact mirror and let him flare at it for a few moments); what else can I put in the tank for my fish to play with? Is there anything that I can leave in the tank for him to play with? Any products that I could...

    I recently went on vacation to Massachusetts, northern point area and brought back three clam shells. Wondering if I can put them in my tank with my betta? Do I need to specially clean them since they are from the ocean? Do they need to be quarantined at all? If so, how do I do that? Or can I...

    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?

    Hi, I am planning to get a 20 gallon tank for these fishes: 1 Betta, 3 Guppies, 4 Cories and 8 Neon tetras. But there are several problems/questions I need answers to: First, I saw two 20 gallon tanks, one is longer and one is taller. Which one should I get? (The longer one is my cousin's, so...

    I was browsing the Betta homes sticky and got an idea... Lots of people decorate their tanks with store-bought decor, which gets old and cliche. But I wonder how many people would love to have custom decor for their tanks? I have daily access to the ceramics lab at my school and I possess the...

    Hi everyone! I've been reading in many posts around here about the leaf hammocks for bettas. I would really love to give my little ones one for each other so they can rest if they feel like it. Sadly, here in Mexico there isn't that kind of variety in tank accessories, specially for bettas. So...
