    Hello! I'm a bit new here and have only had my betta for a couple weeks, and I was wondering if anybody had some good filter suggestions? I currently have an elite mini underwater filter, but I think the flow is too strong for my betta and it's stressing him out. Thank you!

    I'm not sure if this is the correct section to post this (I'm sorry in advance if it isn't), but I'm in need of a better filter for my tank. To start, I recently took in a fish along with the tank, heater, and filter. The filter works well, but it's making this terrible buzzing noise and leaves...

    Hello! I currently have a 5.5 gallon heated tank with silk plants. I have my one Betta fish in it, and he loves it! I've been holding off on getting a heater because I don't have a lot of money due to being a broke college student, but it's getting really tedious to have to clean the debris with...

    I have one female and 2 moss balls in a water-conditioned 5 gallon tank. To clean the tank I do water changes every 3 days and every week I remove Rosie and do a deep cleaning of the tank to take the poop and the dirt out. 1. Is my cleaning schedule good? 2. I don't think it's very good because...

    While I'm still waiting before getting another fish, I was wondering how often should I clean my 5 gallon tank? My last fish wasn't in it for very long. It's filtered so I was thinking a 20% water change weekly? or would 50% be better? Also, how long until a 100% water change if at all? I...

    Hi, everyone! Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out here... So. Firstly, I've never had fish before, let alone a betta, but when my roommate got me one as a present I was ecstatic! I'm just now learning how much care they need, though, and I am FAR from an expert. Anyways, I've had...

    I'm sorry if this is a stupid question. I'm new to the betta community. What other accessories do you need in order to operate a sponge filter? I heard you need an air pump. Is that it? What air pump do you recommend?

    Hi Everyone! I've been doing a lot of research lately before welcoming my first Betta into our home. Fortunate for the Betta because there are so many misconceptions about their care that I may have fallen into a few of those "hardy" traps. My question is about filters. We plan on...
