    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello all, My mother informed me that we’re upgrading out dwarf hamster Dipper from a ten gallon tank to a 20 long, meaning I will inherit another tank. At first I’ve been thinking about a brackish tank, but I’m not too keen on the idea. The biggest need I have is the fact that I want to have...

    Other Fish
    Hi! My friend wants to get a fish tank. He's kept fish before, but he's not sure how many to put in a 15 or 20 gallon tank - preferably 15, but if that's impossible, a 20 would be okay. Dimensions would be helpful too, but not necessary! I'm willing to research more. This is what he's...

  16. 2 guppies and betta in a 5g?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I recently was given some guppies but have more males than females so there is too much harassment for my liking.
