    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Looking for more ideas for my tank. I have marbles, but I love glass and new color theme ideas for see-through substrate. Also love Roman Gravel brand based on google images, but really need to see more out there! Even if you have a few marbles on your gravel you may share :) I love how this...
  2. Aquanest heater not working

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello! I'm new to bettas. I have one beautiful boy named Midus. He lives in a 10 gallon aquarium with conditioned water, a heater, a filter, a light, hiding spaces, a giant moss ball, and a lid. (Am I missing anything?) I bought a 50 watt submersible glass heater from ebay. Its called...
  3. Betta flaring up almost constantly

    Betta Fish Care
    As the title says I keep my fish in a 1 foot(length) 5 inches(height) glass aquarium but he keeps seeing himself in the mirror and I don't know if it is a problem for his health he probably does it every time he looks at himself is this a problem?

  4. New betta keeps swimming next to glass.

    Betta Fish Care
    I got him 3 days ago. He keeps swimming next to the glass and doesn't venture to the center of his aquarium. He doesn't use his cave which as multiple hiding spots, and he doesn't swim through his plant. Yesterday I taped a background to the back of his aquarium becuase I noticed he was dueling...

    Betta Fish Marketplace
    Anyone have any shrimp for sale OR trade? I only have a 4 gallon tank so a half dozen or so should be fine. Looking for any type; glass/ghost, RCS, anything colored, etc. At this time I only have some water wisteria that needs to be trimmed to trade with. Let me know what you have and we can...

    My boyfriends betta fish Tobias, was last week moved from his 1 gallon bowl to a 5 gallon tank (Fluval Spec V).

  7. Tiny white worms in tank

    Betta Fish Care
    I saw them yesterday, but didn't realize they were alive. Then today i saw one darting around on the glass. They weren't there before that I ever noticed. They are barely a millimeter long and they inch along the inside of the glass. They remind me of plankton I saw in a science class once. I...
  8. Anyone use Penn Plax Radius Glass Tank?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I am thinking about buying this tank (deciding between 5, 7.5 and 10 gallons). I was wondering if anyone has used it and can provide reviews on the quality, filter, lid, etc. How is it for bettas?
  9. Glass surfing

    Betta Chat
    My betta is really, really, really active. He barely pauses in his "pacing" to take a breath. He never shows interest in anything except his heater and food. And if he swims through the middle of his tank, it's a surprise. He won't stop glass surfing for hours and hours on end. Sometimes he'll...
  10. "Glass" betta

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Would a "glass" (cellophane, usually with black eyes) pair yield only glassy fry? Is this a solid gene or a marble gene? I'm very interested in them but can't find any information.
