  1. Preparing for New Betta

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi! I'm new here, but have had Bettas in the past. I'm awaiting a new Betta from a Thailand breeder: I'm preparing his tank setup while I wait for his arrival. Since it's been a while since I had my last Betta (which I had to give up when I moved), I did some research to make sure I do...
  2. Do I need a heater for my betta?

    Betta Fish Care
    I definitely know that bettas need to live in warm water, and from what I have read, 78 - 80 degrees seems to be optimal. However, my question is, that if I live in a very hot area, and the water is currently at 78 degrees, do I really need a heater? I don't want to cook my betta! Also, if a...
  3. Newbie w Q's: cleaning, bubble nest, glass surfing, heater

    Betta Fish Care
    We got a male betta for my 8-year old daughter’s first ‘my own pet’ just over a week ago and I’ve become strangely betta obsessed.

I was thinking maybe a new ornament or a bigger tank but Im...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Can I get one this small that is adjustable as recommended here in other threads? Right now Fish has a zoo med under gravel and it's working fine. I read love/hate relationships on the tetra 2-15 gal heater. I want to get another heater to either have on hand or use. Whatever I have extra I...

  7. 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...

    Hello! I just recently found this site a day or so ago, and I have been poring over the forums. I have learned so much already about these fish and I'm planning on getting one soon. :) I hope to get into aquarium work when I'm older so I figured taking a few baby steps in caring for fish and...
  12. Heaters and Filters: comparison shopping, can't decide between 2

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Flush with Christmas cash and a 20 gallon tank rescued from my parents attic, I am going to need a filter and a heater. I'm not coming to you totally clueless but with all the research I've done I can only get as far as a "top two" for each category. Any advice based off personal experience...
  13. New fish after the fact?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I inherited my betta, a red Veil tail named 'Count' (but lovingly called 'Fishy'), from a good friend at school. No one is quite sure whether I'm still fish-sitting for the summer or have assumed full custody. :-) I've recently moved him to a 10gal tank. My friend thinks he should have...
