    Hello all, My betta Cassius is not currently well. About 3 days ago I did a 100% water change, cleaned the walls and gravel and changed the filter. Big mistake I know because I got rid of the entire cycle. He immediately started acting unlike himself, darting around the tank, not eating, etc...

    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...

    [Solved: the issue was my pH being 6.4 and my kH being 0d so a cycle could not stay stable - my substrate plus my heavy planting lowered it significantly as my natrual water pH is 7.4 and kH 6d. If you want more info on the solution because this sounda like your problem, dont hesitate to contact...

    I've owned my betta fish for over 2 years now and I've been noticing him making bubbles at the top (not a bubble nest), always resting at the top, rather than the bottom and developing bits of black on his scales. I've just recently got a new 3.5 betta tank and I tried cycling it for the first...

    I am totally new with all the raising a healthy betta fish stuff. I got him a week ago as a birthday present.

    Hi! I need some advice on reducing my ammonia level. I got my betta about 3 weeks ago and I put him in an uncycled tank. At the time I didn't realize that tanks needed to "cycle" & I didn't add any beneficial bacteria. Needless to say after researching on bettas, I realized I messed up. I have a...
