    Hello all, I was just wondering what I should do to keep the shrimplets safe from the betta after they hatch. I have read some about breeder boxes but I am unsure how to properly use one. My betta is pretty passive and friendly to the shrimp I currently have. They are in a 5.5 gallon tank...

    I just set up a 6.2 gallon aquarium for my Rosepetal/Rosetail Betta and I'm having trouble getting him to rest with ease.

    I have a lovely crowntail named Io, who I keep in a filtered, heated 5.5 gal tank. He has no other sick symptoms other than this popeye that keeps showing up. It varies on which eye is being affected, sometimes both. Ive treated him in the past and it goes away, and his tank water is always...

    I just got her Sunday. She's stress-striping, I dunno if it's because of where she is (she's on my dresser) or if it's just general boredom or a lack of hiding spaces or what. My phone is really poor quality, but she's a reddish-pink color with some blue marks between her tail spine-y things. I...
