    I currently have a 2.5 gallon TopFin Bettaflo Relax tank for my betta. The tank came with a submersible pump (pictures are attached) and it has started humming/vibrating. I'm looking to replace it with something similar but quieter. Any recommendations?? Info on the pump: TopFin SP-55...

    Hi! I'm at a dead end with filters. I have a 2.5 gallon tank and I feel like I have scoured the ends of Amazon to find a decent one. I can't even tell you how many reviews I've read but they all seem to say they'll be too strong for my fish! I finally settled on the Elite Underwater Filter but...

    Hi! I just purchased a 2.5 gallon tank for my new betta fish. Double Bowl 2.5 Aquarium Kit - Elive (I'm only using the outside bowl not the small one inside) Everything was going perfectly until I turned the filter system on. He gets pushed around and seems to get caught in the filter input...

    Hello! Guess who?!~ It's been awhile since I've been online/posted anything. But I'm back with a few--- a lot of questions. I have done my own research on this but I would love to hear the opinions of more experienced betta keepers. Alright, here I go- My vt female(Sapphire Shores) is currently...

    Just to start off, I have read the post on the filter baffle, but don't know that it'd work for my small tank. My tank is 2.5 gallons, and the filter that came with it is way too strong for the betta that I got today. I turned it off until I can figure something else out because I felt bad...

    My Betta recently got a new tank, the other was just a temporary one that my goldfish are in (can't put him in with them, he bit their tails last time while I just cleaned his tank). He's been in the corner ever since I got the new tank. The current caused by the filter is relatively small, it...

    I recently moved my betta from my 10 gallon to a 2.5 gallon tank. I tried everything, and it seems like he just prefers a smaller space. I was hoping for some suggestions on filters since the 2.5 tank I bought didn't come with anything. He is sensitive to current, so I need something that...

    Hello! My veil tale male betta is not a fan of his filter. I have a Tom TM1250 internal filter with the flow rate as low as can be. He is in a 2.5 gallon tank with plants and a bridge. He has a heater at 78, and before the new filter, was swimming fine. The nozzle is facing towards the glass...
  9. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I'm very concerned about my betta fish Severus. He has mild fin rot that I just began treating Sunday. He's been darting around my tank like crazy and doing really weird things. He does these things even when he can't see his reflection, so I don't think it's that. Then it looked like he...

    I bought a Betta fish about 4 days ago who is in a 2.5 gallon aquarium with a Whisper 3i water filter for aquariums up to 3 gallons. Whenever I first got him, he would hide behind the filter so that the current wouldn't bother him. I provided him with a cave (which he rarely goes in) and I put a...

    I just got a nanofilter for my 2.5 gal tanks. I have never had filters for them before nor have I ever had filters so I was really new to setting them up, but I think I did it I followed a video online that helped a bit. I turned my filters on the lowest possible setting but my fish still seem...

    I am new to bettas and I am feeling really bad about everything right now. I got my first white betta, Moonchild, at petsmart on Monday and put him in an unheated, unfiltered half gallon bowl (the water was conditioned) with some colored gravel, a marimo ball, and a fake plant. He didn't...

    The filter that came with my 2.5 Aqueon Minibow has worked okay so far, and it's very quiet, but it's bulky and covers up half the light, so I can only grow plants on half of the tank. Because of this, I'm looking for something less intrusive, still quiet, and that can fit on my tank. There's a...

    For a little bit of background information, I moved my Betta into a 2.5 gallon tank with a filter about a week ago because I noticed he had clamped fins and limited activity levels in his old one-gallon tank. As of yet, that behavior hasn't changed. But this post isn't exactly about his issues...

    Because the ambient temperature is warmer now, I've turned off my heater in my tank. Its been off for a few days now and the ambient temperature has fluctuated greatly, but my tank's temperature has more or less stayed the same when I expected the tank's temperature to drop. I have a filter in...

    So I have a 2.5 gal Aqueon Mini-Bow Desktop aquarium. I don't ever have the filter that came with it plugged in because I think it disturbs my betta. He goes near it and it pushes him around. He is a really active little guy so I can't really tell if he likes it or not. I mean, he keeps going...

    I wanted to hold out on getting a new betta until I could order something a bit more interesting than the red and blue that you see at the pet stores. But when I went in to get gravel for a project, I just couldn't help myself. I brought this little guy home. He still doesn't have a name, but...

    I have my new betta, Parli, in a 2.5 gallon heated tank with a live plant. I have a filter, but am loathe to use it since my last betta fish (who was admittedly very sick at the time) got sucked against the filter and died. I suspect the flow was too much for him. Does anyone have...
