    Finless Friends

  2. Add another creature to contain algae?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello, I've been caring for my first betta fish for a few months now. He seems to be doing great, but my tank is accruing a lot of algae. It's small because I live in a studio apartment (I'd give him a bigger one if I could), 2 gallons, and I change out the water biweekly by hand. The tank also...

    Betta Fish Care

I have a siamese algae eater, three snails (not sure what kind), two african dwarf frogs (one male, one female) and a baby betta (about 6 weeks old) in a 2.5 gallon tank.

  9. It's a mess...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Gah! So Pinyin is a slob. I have come to this conclusion, as he likes to eat (lots) and that means he poops (lots) He has some 90's themed gravel (It's rainbow) and I have started to notice that it's covered in a black coloured algae. His fake plants are covered in it too, as well as his...
