    I have a 5 gallon tank with a long and two Java ferns, gravel in the bottom and a low flow beta filter at the top. When I got Berry he was super stressed with clamped fins at the bottom of the tank for a few days. I treated him with the filter off for 5 days with all in one lifeguard treatment...

    Hi I’m looking for wattage recommendations for a 6.8 gallon tank I keep bouncing between 25 and 50. Also any recommendations of heaters under around $25 would be lovely! TIA

    Hello all, I’m a new fish keeper and have recently bought very deeply into the hobby. I quickly jumped from a 1 gallon bowl for my Betta, researched it. Realized that was way to small. Bought a 6.5 gallon tank, and a month later I just went ahead and sent it and bought a 55 gallon tank. So...

    I came home today and my fishbowl was knocked over on the floor but my fish was still alive miraculously. I was the house cat, but I couldn't believe the cat didn't eat him. Part of my fish's upper tail fin is missing. He looks really sad is more brown than usual and he sometimes flops over. He...

    Our Betta has been a healthy and active fish for about a year. The past month he has had a big lump on his side that weighs him down, he swims sort of on his side. He is still eating and I originally treated it as constipation but the lump has not gone. We have not done anything different from...

    I am already experienced with male bettas, but females are tricky for me. I want to start a female sorority and I have attempted to make one out of three bettas (one of them is a rescue due to it's horrible cup I bought her in). Pepper, a red female, is the most aggressive and wont stop...

    I bought a male beta almost 7 months ago, and he was crystal white and beautiful and his fins were full. And he's been perfectly fine until recently, he's started to change colors on the border of his tail to a yellowish. And now it's changed to red and it looks like his tail fins have almost...

He is just lying on the gravel alot. He doesnt seem to have anything physically wrong with him, all his...

    You know, besides the usual pellets and freeze dried blood worms; what other things can I feed my beta? Anything I can feed them in my kitchen? And how much should I feed them food besides pellets and dried worms and how often? Is there anything that I should avoid feeding them? Tell me...

    I guess I'm asking for help prematurely, but I just got this new beta food and my beta doesn't seem to be a huge fan of it. It's made by a company called Zoo Med. Has anyone heard of it or used this food? I know that betas have different taste buds, but it would be good to know if nobodies betas...

    I have had Nemo for a few years now and he is currently in a 1 gallon beta bowl with a green fake plant with red and clear colored gravel. He is near a window so he gets light from that and overhead. I don't know what brand of food I feed him but I think it's called beta pellets. Anyway it's in...
