    Other Fish

All of course were in 10 gallon, heated, filtered tanks. I'm trying to invest back into other fish instead. *What's...

    Hello everyone! I have two new boys, since my past ones have recently just passed, and I used the old decor (clean) from the prior tanks. I noticed some fading on my aquarium decor, and was wondering what are some aquarium safe paints that would be safe to redo the color on the faded decor...

  8. Getting started

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I am brand new to the whole betta fish thing. How small of a tank can I get away with getting without compromising the quality of life of a single betta? Also depending on the size, what size is the biggest aquarium I can get that will not need to be filtered? I am a student and working on a...
