    I noticed today this odd, orangeish-red stuff on the leaves in my betta’s tank. Kinda looks like rust. There’s also the very dark algae next to it on the leaves if you can see that as well. What is this stuff? Should I take the whole decoration out and scrub it?

    So just a day or two ago I noticed a bit of purple stuff growing the suction cup of my thermometer, and a very very tiny amount on the suction cup of my leaf hammock, in the tank. I assumed it was algae, but I don’t have much experience with algae. I’m just wondering if it is algae, but more...

    Hi everyone- This green stuff has started showing up in the corner of my tank that the lamp is by. Is it algae? Is there a fix? It doesn’t wipe off the silk plants easily and doesn’t come off the gravel when vacuumed. I don’t mind the look of it as long as it’s safe.

    I have brown algae ALL OVER my betta's tank. It's on the glass, gravel, and decorations. I am gonna do a water change after I create this post, but I was wondering if the brown algae harmed my betta while it was inside the tank. The brown algae was there for about 3-5 days. My betta right now...

    I am curious about everyone's thoughts on algae eaters! I know nerite snails are a big one. I just have one male betta in a 5.5 gal tank with lots of decor, fake plants and some live plants. He is getting some algae buildup that keeps getting worse, and I have to suck it out with a turkey baster...

    a couple months ago i switched to a 3.5 from a 2.5 gallon and it's been really good but a lot of habits have changed for me with maintaining my tanks health (i only have a 3 year old betta and a moss ball in there, along with other fake plants, etc.) with my 3.5 gallon tank, i do about a 25%...

    Hello all. Just started doing my betta’s water change for the week, and noticed on his new piece of driftwood that there is this slimy film on the bottom of it, where it was against the gravel on the floor of the tank. Idk if you can see it in the picture. It also kinda has a strong sulfur-y...

    Hi all! About 6 months ago you all helped us so much with our wonderful betta Ringo. He's thriving and doing so well! About 3 months ago we moved and put his tank by a window (the only place that would work in the layout). Unfortunately this led to a burst of algae. We got a nerite snail and I...

    Hi, I recently bought a rose petal betta within the last few months, and he seems to be having some trouble. Specifically, he keeps getting bloated and constipated, and it is causing him a lot of stress and rotting his beautiful fins which is messing up the water's ammonia levels. I keep him in...

    So, this is the best picture I could get for what is happening to my tank and betta recently. It's noticeable around his head and body. This algae, if that's what it is, is all over the fake tank plants and decorations. I can't seem to get rid of it, right after I 100% clean the tank, it comes...

    I've had bettas as a kid, but I always kept them in a single gallon bowl. After having a betta last year that developed fit rot, I set up a 5 gallon tank for him, but then the tablets I used to treat the fit rot killed him! But not to be sad, I mourned him and soon purchased a new betta. My...
