  1. Corys, Ottos or Snails?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hi there! Hoping you can help me with this! I have a lovely little betta who has spent 2 weeks in is new tank so that he can settle in. I'm now looking to get a couple of small fish to act as good tank cleaners for food that falls to the bottom of his tank. He's a silly fish that refuses to eat...
  2. How many fish can I keep in a 10 gallon?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello all! I recently rehomed my betta from a 3.5 to a 10 gallon tank, and bought 5 Julii Corys to go with him. So far they are all getting along, and they're all doing great! I was wondering if this has tapped out the limits of the tank, or if I can get a few more fish? I was thinking more of...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello! I'm posting in this catagory because I want to figure out if there is anything wrong with my set-up.

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hi! I have had my male betta sam for about 7 months. He lives in a 3 gallon tank byhimself, and I was wondering that after he gets healthier, what kind of fish or water animals could he live with in the tank? I think he is pretty friendly... I am willing to upgrade to maybe a 5.5 gallon tank if...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello all! I recently got a new Betta Male last week, And bought him a 3 gallon tank, some silk plants, and am picking him up a heater today. I am curious as to what other fish/critters could I keep in that tank with him. He does have a filter, and I daily check the ammonia/nitrite/nitrate...
  7. Tank Mates?

    Betta Fish Care
    My tank has been running for a month now, and I've had my betta for 3 weeks already. I have a 5 gal and I was thinking of getting 2-4 ghost shrimp. I figured they would be good companions because they'll eat leftover food and algae, and my betta sometimes misses food I drop. My betta is...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I'm thinking of getting some tank custodians for the tank I'll be putting my betta in when he arrives from Thailand. It's a 5 gallon planted, but I've got another 5 gallon and a 10 gallon waiting to be set up so any fish that outgrow the 5 gallon can be moved to the bigger tank later on. I...

    Betta Fish Compatibility

  11. Bettas and Their Love/Hate Relationship

    Betta Chat
    I'm cycling a 20 gallon right now, so my 5 girls are in bowls right now. I kept the bowls close together on my desk, so they could see each other. Well, my cat figured out how to take lids off, so I had relocate them to another room. I wasn't thinking about it, and just lined them up, instead...
  12. Algea Eaters- Questions!

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Recently, there has been a lot of algea blooming in William's tank. It's all over his favorite plant and the sponge in his filter. So here's my question: What is the best algea eater that I could put in with him? He is a laid-back type of fish. He only flairs at his mirror, and even then he...

  14. Which fish can be placed with a single male betta?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I bought a betta from my local pet store a few weeks ago. He went from being in the tiny store bowl to a 1-2 gallon bowl and now I have him in a 10 gallon tank. :) In the aggressive range, i think he might be a 6 or 7 (10 being the highest). When he was in the 2 gallon bowl I put a male guppy...
