    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hi, I'm new to the hobby and just bought a 15 gallon tank to prep the water and plants for my future betta. I've read a lot about betta tank mates and still confused.

  4. tank mates with a very curious betta

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have a ten gallon planted tank (with more plants on the way) and I'm thinking of getting some dainty cory cats as tank mates because my LFS has them in stock. I've never had a community tank with a betta before. My dad used to have a community saltwater tank with an unkillable and kinda rude...

  6. Missing Peppered Cory?

    Other Fish
    So I woke up this morning to feed my 3 peppered cory cats and 1 was missing... 1 was dead on the bottom of the tank. The dead fish had no discoloration (save for the death eyes), no marks, no swollen belly, no odd scales.. nothing. It was very bizarre. All of the other fish seem happy and...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    My boyfriend is giving me his 20 gallon long tank with a filter and heater. After I cycle the tank I want to get a new betta and Julii cories for the tank. I'd like to put in as many cories as possible because I know they are happier in bigger schools but I also don't want to stress out the...
  8. Looking for short lived betta companions

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    So, my final plan is to have a betta, shrimp and 6 dwarf cory 10 gallon tank. After reading, talking, reading some more, I have come to the conclusion that I want a fully mature tank before trying the corys. I have also decided that I don't want to have more bioload than the corys, shrimp and...
  9. Non-Snail Algae Eating Companions

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Greetings, I'm wanting a companion for a betta that will eat algae, but not aquarium plants. I don't want snails, as they are too prone to escape and I sometimes have to leave the tank for more than twelve hours at a time. I would accept snails that will not travel above the water line. I'm...
  10. Stocking changes... Second opinions?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello all! I have a 15 gallon tank that is technically a column, but it still has a large amount of surface area and is only about 1.5 times taller than it is wide, if that makes sense. The base is square. I bought three harlequin rasboras yesterday to add to the tank because I was really...

  15. pH way too high! What can I do?

    Betta Fish Care
    I just started a 20 gallon tank for my betta, but the ph is WAY too high. In my 10 gallon tank (where my betta currently lives) it is at 7.5 which isn't that bed. In the 20 gallon tank though it is over 8.5 which is way to high for any fish. The only difference I can think of is that the 20...
