    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi guys! I got a new betta over the weekend, and currently he is living in a 1 gal jar, while I set up his new home. I have another betta and he is in a 5 gal with gravel, but I don't reaaaally love the look of it. I was thinking of getting sand but I was told it gets dirty and it shows. Can...
  2. Please Help! Brand New Betta Fish Hurting

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello! We just got our very first Betta fish about 2 weeks ago. He was such a happy little guy. But, in the last three days his tail fin has begun fraying. I noticed the plastic tree stump in his tank was rather sharp, so I took that out immediately and it seems to have helped a lot. His fins...
  3. Wal-mart Ceramic Moonstone

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I grabbed a pack of the glow-in-the-dark ceramic moonstone that Wal-mart carries today! Wanted to check them out, and saw an old, old thread that said they were working out well! From multiple people, no chipping of bubbling in the paint and stuff. Are they still a good quality item..? The...
  4. Betta fish lighting

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Ever since school's started up again, I've had to go to bed earlier and wake up earlier. When I sleep, I don't like any lights on, but I'm afraid this is affecting my betta. I wake up at 6:30-7 am. It's light out, and I open the blinds slightly so some sunlight comes in. Then, I don't get home...

  6. Carboy fish tank idea

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I have my Betta that I love and has been living with me for almost three years, and have had him various tanks. My latest tank has been a large stemless snifter (brandy glass looking) vase? It holds up to around a gallon. This was an upgrade from the generic plastic betta tank that he resided...
  7. Home for my fishy

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So, I recently received my very first betta for my birthday. I have a 10-gallon tank at home that I was more than happy to work with (get filter, heater, the whole shebang), but the lady at the pet store told my mother and I that the 10 gallon wasn't good enough and that he needed a smaller...
  8. Accidental Red Cherry Shrimp

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I ordered some red cherry shrimp online that were supposed to be sent to my boyfriend's house. I live in a college dorm so I didn't want them to have to go through the school's mail room and I also wasn't sure how my bettas would react to them. But... stupid me accidentally sent them to... MY...
  9. Thoughts on a new tank?

    Betta Chat
    I was considering one if those bio-orb tanks. The rectangle shaped ones that comes with everything (fake flora,rocks,filter,etc) believe its called bioorb flow I was wondering if anyone has one and could tell me how good quality they are and if they look good in an apartment or are a bit over done
  10. Successful upgrade?

    Betta Chat
    I have finally been able to upgrade my fish's tank up to a 5.5 gallon (yay!). I've had him for about three weeks in a bowl half the size which he didn't love, but it was a temporary solution.:-? I made sure to have a couple live plants and a smooth hiding place, heater, and did regular water...

  12. Planning

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    My little guy bit his tail a few weeks ago. Since he has never had a tail-biting habit before, and hasn't done it since, I assume he is lonely (It was around the time my brother's betta died, he was in a separate tank but they knew of each other). He is in a half gal quarantine tank currently...
  13. Betta Heater?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi there! I have two bettas and they live in a bowl and a tall vase without any kind of heater. I used to have another betta that lived for three years in a vase without a heater. My question is, do I absolutely need a heater? And if so, do I have to buy a tank for them that has one? What should...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hey everyone, So I'm new to this forum but I decided to come here for some advice on making a new habitat.

  16. Betta Tank -- HELP!

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello, I was considering buying the Biorb, but after reading several reviews, decided it wouldn't be worth it. Apparently, it's poor quality for the amount of money it costs. I would really appreciate any suggestions on a tank that offers the following features: 1) Reasonably priced $75...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Setting up a Betta Biotope So, my first betta just passed. In his memory I decided to set up a biotope in his now vacant 10 gallon tank for my next betta. I already have a heater and a filter in this tank and I am working on replacing the water and cleaning everything up. Currently, the tank...
  18. Betta likes small habitat?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So, Cryo currently lives in a filtered 2.5. He's got a case of SBD that I can't seem to shake, so he doesn't really use the space he has, and it's a challenge to get him fed because he has to come to the surface and sit on one of the structures to get at the food. I put him in a little...
