    Betta Fish Care
    Betta fish obviously need purified water to live, but their labrinyth would suggest that they need a good amount of clean air as well.

    Just want to show you guys a pic of my EE after I put the IAL in his tank with him. I posted a few weeks ago about a fin issue with this guy, Storm is his name. He was biting his own fins and I started more frequent water changes with aquarium salt. I ordered some IAL prior to his biting...

I live in Texas where it gets very hot in the summer time ( up to 110 degrees) but its winter time here now and I usually keep the temperature in the house @ about 73 for it to be comfortable for everyone. I was worried about my betta though, I know they thrive in warmer temps but to keep...
