  1. Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So, after restarting my Spec V in the living room and getting Arthur, I seem to have reawakened my addiction. I decided I needed a tank in my bedroom and another Betta! I've been keeping my eye out and found a pretty good deal on a used setup. It included 20 pounds of unused, black sand (which...
  2. Planted Betta Tanks
    Hi, I'm just starting out (really early in the process - research lol) and I'm looking for suggestions on a good substrate and plants for a planted Betta tank. My house had a 5 gallon tank that comes with lights and a filter (this one: Top Fin® Split Bowfront Aquarium - 5 Gallon | fish Starter...

    Hello everyone! I’m excited to be apart of this community when I got my first Betta fish this weekend! His name is King William von Hinkle. He’s so happy in his 3.5 gallon tank. But my question is, I have blinged out his tank cause he’s a king of course, but does it bother them if I change it...

    Hi all! I'm new to these forums and relatively new betta owner (I had a betta about 10 years ago who lived about 4 years, and I finally worked up the nerve to get a new one - knowing a lot more about proper betta care and general aquarist knowledge than I did back then, but definitely still...

    So I felt like my fish might want some more spaces to hide so I added the fake grass and the fake rock with the flowers, could there be any repercussions of my fish not having as much free space? Its a 2 gallon and I do water changes every Sunday and Wednesday.

    I have a betta with a big rock piece (no rough edges), a few silk plants, and a betta hammock. He is currently dealing with velvet, so I'm going to quarantine him today. How do I disinfect his tank and decor safely? I know you can't use soap, so how do I make sure the medication and disease...

    Hello, new to the forum and in the process of creating my first tank I've gotten most supplies easily enough, but I've gotten stuck on non-plant decor, especially a cave Everything in my budget either is too sharp, or has holes just a tad too tiny. I read that bettas will try to jam themselves...
  8. Planted Betta Tanks
    Well hello. Recently my betta fish died :( And I just determined that it was probably because he most likely got scratched on his plastic plants then got a bacterial infection or something. So after chucking out those lovely little killers plus my crappy fickle water tester I decided that I...

    Hello! I am looking for any suggestions you all may have about filters, decor, or anything regarding setting up at 10 gal tank. This will be my very first time working with a filter, so I want to make sure I do everything right. I got the tank from my brother and he also gave me a heater and...

    Hello! I'm very new to betta fish keeping. My fish Robbie is in a 2.5 gallon heated tank. I was wondering if you guys could recommend some cheap silk plants for me? I don't think i have the time to keep up real plants and I don't have a lot of money, but I want to give Robbie some better plants...

    Hello all~ While I can't afford the pretty decorations I want, I was looking to get some more hiding things for my betta. That way I can cycle between his (bulky, ugly) log decor and other decor, and keep things interesting. Lately he seems to get his entertainment solely by watching me...

    I haven't bought my betta yet. Currently I have a 10 gallon that is going through a fishless cycle. I am prepping my tank before I get my fish by getting gravel, decor, and plants. Will this plastic plant hurt my fish seeing that it has little spikes? the little spikes are not hard, it feels...

    Hey, so question. I had to remove all of Poseidon's hiding places, because I discovered the plastic plants were scratching him. So all he has his a rock with a straight though hole. Do you think I tea cup would be an okay addition until I can give him new décor?

    I'm new to caring for Betta fish, although I own a 35 gallon of other assorted fish. About a month ago, my office decided they really wanted a fish. So we began planning and someone already had an Aquafarm tank. The tank comes with a filter that moves water through the tank into the upper...

    I know that it's been suggested to rearrange decor to alleviate fin biting, but I rearranged Nebby's tank, originally to help out the ghost shrimp that shared his tank. Unfortunately it wasn't untill after I'd set up the new arrangement that I found her tangled up in her own molted shell and...

    So I recently got my betta, Jaws, a fluval spec III, to upgrade him from his current unfiltered, 1 gallon tank. I'm going to be going to petsmart this weekend to buy some stuff and I want to make sure I'm covering all the necessities. -a small heater -a thermometer -a small siphon -maybe a...

    I added a new cave/rock like decor to my boy Ronnie's tank. What does he do? *flare flare flare flare flare flare* *looks at me* *swims around the decor* *swims through the decor* *ignores the decor* I have a very silly fish.

    I just got some PVC pipe to make a little hiding place for Franky. I heard that hot glue was okay to use to stick little aquarium pebbles to it, is that true? Is there anything special I should do to the pipe before I decorate it and put it in the tank? I've had a lot of trouble with plastic...
