  1. Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi! So I personally have a Top Fin 5.5 gallon Aquarium Starter Kit for my Betta Barry, but my friend who gave me Barry has a betta that she's owned and kept for about 5 months. She keeps him in a .5 gallon fish bowl and he seems to be doing fine but after doing a good of research into betta...

    I'd like to know of any clear coats that are aquarium safe. You see I'm thinking of making a small 2/2.5 gallon tank for a Rosetail Betta I have my eye on (he i so beautiful!

    My neighbor just gave us a mini-bow 5 gallon aquarium. The fish she had died and she didn't feel like getting a new one.

    My husband showed up a two days ago with a Betta fish and some Betta food. For temporary keeping since this was not a planned purchase, our new friend is in a glass fish bowl. I am looking online at aquariums and could use some advise. I have been looking at the: Tetra Cube Aquarium...
