    I once used a net and it really freaks them out. Now I use a small, clear, plastic bowl that bends and I just scoop him up. No stress and he watches me clean his home. I would never go back to a net knowing that cleaning his house can be as easy as a little scoop. Bruce's Mom

    I have a ten gallon tank which I bought yesterday for a new betta who died this morning. I would like to be able to use this tank for fish later, but I'd like to be sure it's clean in case what killed my little guy was something contagious. He was bought at Petco and the water in his cup...

    Betta fish obviously need purified water to live, but their labrinyth would suggest that they need a good amount of clean air as well. I was wondering if decreasing the amount of water (just a little) to allow some more clean air into their environment would be a good idea? I know that an air...
