    Hello friends, I have recently bought my first beta fish about a week ago from this Friday. I have a 1 gallon "desktop" tank, with a filter and a heater. I'm aware the tank is small so I plan on upgrading in the future, I live in a dorm now so space is tight. I have talked to two people at the...

    Okay so this is a 15 gallon betta sorority with 5 girls. I've had this tank for 3months and I clean the tank once a week with a siphon. I also take the plants and decorations out to rub the algae off and then put them back in. This doesn't seem to be working and it keeps coming back. Here are...

    I recently started to feed my bettas each 3 pellets by finger every day and now whenever I clean the tank they nip and swim around my arm. Is this normal? I don't mind one nipping at me but all 5 at once is a little much. I'm just wondering is this normal? Are they doing this because they are...

    So I recently just bought a 10 gallon tank with a heater and a filter after thinking my betta was sick. I also bought one of those cleaning hoses for the bottom of the tank. So I was just curious how I would perform a 50% water change? Should I get a bucket and and let it sit overnight with...

    Hi All, I'm new here! Excited to finally be part of a betta community. :-) One of my 3 betas just died, and his tank (a 5-gal w/ plants, filter, ornaments) needs a thorough cleaning, esp. if I plan to get a new betta, which we all know is inevitable!! My question is: what about the sucker fish...

    If I was to build a java moss carpet on my tank (10 gallon), how am I suppose to clean the fish deposits?

    I'm going back to Petsmart today to get another betta since Casper passed away. I am still not exactly sure what killed him, other than the fact that he was probably very ill when I got him and the stress of the move just did him in. But I digress. Since I'm not really sure how Casper died I...

    So I'm doing my first 100% water change with my new tank, and I need a little help. I have a small Tupperware container for Dumbledore to wait in while I'm cleaning (Don't know what happened to his original cup, but the container I use is about the same size as the original cup). He's petrified...

    I posted a few months ago asking about a affordable bigger tank for my betta. For a while I had no luck, until a few days ago where a found a used 10 gallon glass aquarium for just a few dollars. I was so excited to bring it home and would like to make it into the perfect home for my betta. I...

    I have my first Betta. I have a two gallon tank with a heater that is keeping the water at 80. When I go to change the water, how much should I take out. Also, can I microwave the new water so it will be at 80 before adding it? Or should I put him in a bag with his old water and let it float...

    Hi guys! I just got a "new" 40L tank from the salvos. I plan to divide it into four for my four male bettas. Does anyone have any ideas what to use for dividers? Also I want to ask whether having four fish means I need to change the tank more? Whether having the tank divided means I need to...
