  1. Plant I.D.

    Planted Betta Tanks
    I've completely forgotten what this plant is called and this is my first time doing a planted tank so I'm not too experienced with what's what. I really like this one and want to get more. If it's a fast grower I can just grow it myself but I have no clue what it is. I want a mix of it and the...

  7. 20L gallon tank stocking

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have a 20L gallon with a male betta and a small school of cory cats. It is around 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and there are 2 filters: An Aqueon QuietFlow 20 and a Tetra Whisper 10i. The betta is very calm (curious, but once he realizes it isn't food he leaves it alone) and gets along fine with his...
  8. Silly community tank stocking question

    Other Fish
    ... When you get ready to fill a community tank, how the heckie do you handle the concept of quarantine? Or do you... not, and just cross your fingers? We're in a kind of aquatics deadzone and aren't interested in shipping in an entire 75g community's worth of fish, so it's sadly likely we'll...

    Other Fish

  13. Nasty White Fuzz on Artificial Plants

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hey everybody! So, I finally got my 20g community tank up and running, but I'm seeing some really weird white fuzz on my plants: My initial thought is that it's some kind of algae, but I wanted to get some opinions from more experienced people. If something hits the plants hard enough...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi everyone My first thread here. I have a 5gal planted tank, a moss ball and three shrimp. Yesterday my betta sadly pass due to dropsy (I suspect that it was thanks to a vacation food block, or maybe because I stupidly changed the filter without knowing better), and now I'm seeking guidance...

  19. Best way to add 2-3 more female bettas in with Athena?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Currently I have one female betta (Athena) and one nerite snail in my 10 gallon tank, and I've read everywhere that if I want more female bettas it's best to keep them in a school of 3 or more (correct?). Athena is not aggressive or violent; when I added my snail a couple days ago she was very...
