  7. Bettas won't swim around and hide in their caves all day!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I'm really worried about my two boy Bettas.They're both inside a 10 gallon divided tank. They didn't have a heater for a few weeks and the water was a constant 70 degrees F Since I had a heater, I wanted to add it in since I read they need a temperature of 78Degrees. I added it in, waited 30...
  8. Sponge Filter for 10 gallon Betta tank?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So I got a 10 gallon tank kit by Aqueon at Petco for my two male Bettas. I divided it with some plastic mesh and report covers. The kit came with an Aqueon QuietFlo filter. I thought it was good but I noticed its flow was really strong and pushing my poor Betta around, so he can't swim in the...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So I got my betta about a week ago so I'm really new to this. The lady at the fish store that I talked to really seemed to know what she was doing and she told me I only needed to get a very small bowl, some rocks for the bottom, some food and some water conditioner, so that was all I got. But...

    I am currently taking care of the office fish which is a betta. He is not doing so well lately. He seems to be eating less and swimming less. As of late, he's got a white lump growing on his tail. It's only getting larger. I'm quite worried. He is two years old and lives in a fairly small...
  12. Cloudy tank?

    Betta Fish Care
    So earlier, I posted a thread about having a cloudy tank after I changed the water, but that was due to the new rocks, and the color of the water was more of a misty white rather than a green. I noticed that after I make a water change in the tank, it'll be fine for that day, but the next day...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I've recently decided to try my hand at keeping a betta again and would like help choosing a tank. Does anyone have experience with these two tanks and have a preference? Here and Here I was thinking for both these tanks I would take the filters out and put a sponge filter in instead so I...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hey guys. I'm about to divide my betta so I can rescue another betta, but I'm curious to hear what every body recommends for dividers. I was thinking the craft mesh that you can make tunnels out of becuase I have a bunch in my house. Anybody have recommendations?

    Journals
    I think it would be nice to have a place to talk about my little project, the future iwagumi betta Picotope. I'll probably use this thread to post updates on the tank, test results and plant updates, silly things Opalo does, and anything else related to the tank. :-) Latest pic: (4/3/14)...
