    I just got a heater for my 2.5 gallon tank today to keep the water 78°F, but once i put it in, my betta decided to hang out next to it! i’m nervous because my boyfriend had a molly who was obsessed with the heater, who later died because of the burns. i did JUST get the heater about an hour ago...

    I kinda want to add a snail to my tank with my betta, but i only have a one gallon tank. i’m new to this, and i know my tank is small to begin with. my boyfriend thinks maybe it’ll be fine, as mystery snails eat the access food, BUT he said they might not get along as there isn’t much space. I...

He freaked out when I used the cup and placed him in his temporary tank while I clean his 10 gallon! his reactions...

    Hi, I have a 10 gallon aquarium for my fish, Willie. I have been through so many filters but they have all ended up being so loud. For example the one I have in his tank right now is the Tetra Internal Power Filter which is supposed to be very quiet but mine sounds horrible. I even cleaned out...

    Hi, I have a platinum white half moon betta. I’ve had him for over two years so he is pretty old. He lives in a 10 gallon aquarium but I just recently moved him to a 5.5 quarentine tank due to his fin rot. I read somewhere that elderly bettas can get chronic fin rot and never get better. I...

    I’ve had my betta since mid-April, and all was going well until its fins started to show signs of damage. I thought it was the live plant at first so I took it out and put another one in (the first plant had driftwood) but I’ve been thinking maybe it bit it off. And now it had this injury on...

    The tank I am purchasing comes with no lid and I'm hoping to place my aquarium on a stable shelf with a moderate amount of light. the dimensions of my tank are 12 x 6 x 8 inches. Should I be concerned about not having a lid? Are there lids with LEDs that will fit a tank with my dimensions? Will...

    Hello, I just purchased a betta from Petco today. He seemed fine in the store and was a pale grey color. He was pretty active compared to my other options so I didn't think he was sick. However, after only a couple of hours in his new tank (cycled 2.5 gallon with a filter and heater). He began...
