    Its getting cold out here in my city and I wanted to know if I could move him to a warmer room? Use a lamp to keep him warm? Or simply keep changing his water when it gets too cold due to ICH?
  3. Sick or Depressed?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    This time, I'm here for the betta that got me into fishkeeping. His name is Frank. I love this little guy with all of my heart. He was a community fish for about 2 months after I got him. He was very happy with other fish and snails, even blew nests in the community tank. I left him in the old...
  4. Cold Water Disaster???

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    :cry: So I just moved into college and the only thing we are allowed to have in the dorm is a fish. My roommate and I got a betta (named Rodger) and we absolutely love him! The only problem is that the water goes from adequately warm to freezing in about three hours-- we are assuming that it is...
  5. Betta help

    Betta Fish Care
    My co-worker gave me Betta fish for my desk. He's in a 1/2 gallon tank at the moment. I plan on buying a larger tank this weekend, but I'm worried that he's too cold. They keep it very cool in the office. I was thinking about buying a heater for the new tank, but I'm sure they wouldn't let...
  6. Heating Problems (my house is an ice box)

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Not really an ice box but my room is on the corner of the house so its really cold all the time in the winter, which has now caused my tank's temp to drop down to between 72-74 depending on the time of day. I've considered buying a better heater that I can adjust, but would like to know if...

  8. Moving back to college?

    Betta Fish Care
    So I'll be moving about an hour north and want to take Franky with me. It'll be pretty cold (moving in November probably), but if I can get a cooler big enough to hold his 2.5 gallon tank and heater, and pack it in blankets and foam, then I think he'll be fine. I'd have the heat on in the car...
  9. What is the best method to cool down a tank?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    This is just a casual question. It's getting pretty warm over here now, and when we aren't home the air isn't on. Checked the tank temperature and noticed it was around 82 degrees. I know that isn't too hot, but it was a bit warmer than I liked. I just took the lid off the tank for a bit (before...

    I have a female beta in a 1.5 gallon filtered bowl. I know this is way too small so I'm upgrading to a 5 gallon but it's not ready yet. None of my betta tanks are heated because the texas summer kept them at 82-84 degrees all the time. A cold front came in yesterday and when I checked the...
