  1. 50 Watt Heater not working.

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi all, I bought a 50 watt Aqueon Heater for my 5 gallon aquarium since heater options were limited. I opened the box and there was no instructions, so what I did was, put the heater in the water (without it plugged in) and let it sit in the water for 25 minutes, I than plugged it in but the...
  2. Filter cartridge ideas? Im stumped.

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I have an aqueon quietflow 10 power filter. However, I'm not sure about whether to use the cartridge or mod it or what. The cartridge has carbon, which I don't think I need, but I've read it keeps the water clearer. Also, I don't want to have to replace the cartridge, and have heard...

    Betta Fish Care
    I just got a Betta (his names Karl Pilkington :lol:) who is prone to swim bladder. What would be a good feeding schedule to keep it under control?
  4. Can't decide on a Tank

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I've decided to get a Betta fish recently and I can't decide on The Marineland Crescent 3 gallon or the Aqueon 2.5 gallon... any advice? I do like the sleek look of the Crescent, but I've heard of cracking while setting up or the filter being too big.. or the lid. I would love to hear some...
  5. Aquarium Lid(s)

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I purchased a couple of 2.5 gallon aquariums from Pet Supplies Plus that were labeled as Aqueon's brand, but they didn't come with lids to accommodate for fish that can jump. I'm now searching for something to place over the aquariums that will allow room for the wiring of my equipment and also...
  6. Aqueon lighting question

    Planted Betta Tanks
    I have a question about the deluxe aqueon flourescent 24 in. Hood. It is 15 watts and is full spectrum. It would be used for a 20 gallon high, would this setup be sufficient for some low light plant such as anubias, water wisteria, java fern and anacharis? I assume yes, it will work, but I...
  7. Aqueon Minibow Filter Cartridges Clogging Within Hours

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I am long winded, so I apologize in advance for that. I recently got an Aqueon Minibow 2.5 gallon tank and my betta and I are really loving it despite the strong current (gonna baffle it soon even though my betta doesn't seem to mind it). The problem is that after initially setting it up, the...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I am new to ghost shrimp, should I get 1 or 2 shrimp with my betta fish?? My tank is a led aqueon betta bow 2.5 gallon, with only 1 betta in it. How do i take care of the ghost shrimp? How long would they last? Will there be a chance my betta will eat it??? What live plants recommended from...
  9. Filter Creating Too Strong Current

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I just upgraded my 5 gallon aquarium to a 10 gallon and decided that it was time to purchase a filter, since the aquarium is so large. I ordered the Aqueon QuietFlow 10, and installed it yesterday. From what I've observed, the current it creates is way too strong for my betta. He seems to have...
  10. Aqueon Mini Bow?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hey everyone! :-) I was wondering if anybody had any experience with the Aqueon Mini Bow tanks- specifically the 2.5 or the 5 gallon. Right now my Sunny boy is in a two gallon, so I would rather not downgrade the little guy into a one gallon. Personally I like the look of the 5 gallon, but I...
  11. Snails? Shrimp?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hi, I have an Aqueon Evolve 8 Gallon for my one Betta. It has driftwood and tons of plants. I was wondering what type of snails would be best for a small planted tank like mine? I only want ONE snail, so hopefully that would counteract having them go into plague mode. Also I am going to see how...
  12. Aqueon Heater Issues?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I purchased a 100 watt Aqueon submersible heater for my 20 gallon. It is upright in the tank, with the dial out of the water, above the minimum water line. The first time I turned it on it made this weird knocking/clicking noise when it was heating the water. It freaked me out, so I unplugged...
  13. Aqueon Products...

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi, I just wanted to ask if anyone knew of some better food brands for Bettas, Catfish, Shrimp, and Albino Tiger Barbs... Maybe even white clouds. (Getting some in the future.) Anyway, right now we're feeding our babies Aqueon products and the ingredients hardly differ from the betta pellets to...
  14. Light quit working in new Aqueon Mini Bow 2.5 gallon

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi. I'm new here and so glad t o find this great site! :-P Bought the Aqueon 2.5 last month. Male Betta, Waylon, is thriving. After cleaning it last night, the light was still working, but overnight it quit. All else is fine. I noted on another site a few problems with it have occurred. I...
  15. 2.5 to 3 gallon tank- best options?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I want to get preferably a 2.5 gallon, maybe 3, for my next betta. I'm looking online and see mixed reviews. So far, it appears that Fluval makes a good tank but nothing in the 2.5 or 3 range- only 1.5, 2 and larger than 3. Also, Aqueon Mini Bow and Tetra are options, as well as a basic 2.5 or 3...
  16. What do you guys think about Aqueon Betta Food?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hey everybody, i was browsing this site, when i read about betta nutrition. I use Aqueon Betta Bellets, fed 3-4 a day (once a day) or 2 pellets (twice a day). He is fasted every Thursday, and gets a bloodworm or two every two weeks(too long?). What do you guys think? Is this a good pelleted...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Are the mini bow tanks by Aqueon good for bettas? I am thinking about getting a couple more male bettas and I need some good tanks for a reasonable price and I don't like keeping my fish without filters or heaters..lol.. Also, out of curiosity do they make heaters small enough to work in the 2.5...

  19. Aqueon Evolve 2 - Betta fish resting near filter intake?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    My betta fish has been resting near what I think is the filter intake. This is my 2nd tank, but still a beginner to keeping fish! He isn't in danger of being sucked in, but I do wonder if his fins could get damaged. Right now I'm keeping the filter unplugged until I find a solution. The...
  20. Woke Up, Filter Not Working

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    UGH Woke up and my filter for my 29g sorority wasnt working. I also have very little money right now and cant replace it until next wednesday. Does that mean my cycle is going to die? Any way to keep it alive? I was using the Aqueon Quietflow 20 (for 30 gallons)and from what I and my...
