    Recently I took a job where I have been given the responsibility to take care of the fish tanks and betta fish. This is a mega big box store chain. I’d like to do my best once the fish have been delivered into my care. I am appalled at the conditions all fish arrive. The bettas in small cups...

    Hi everyone. I’ve recently set up my new betta tank and was hoping to get some advice on basic maintenance. I'm still in the fish-in cycling process so most of these questions will be applicable once the cycling process has completed. My gallon is approximately four gallons, houses one male...
  3. Planted Betta Tanks
    I've been thinking about starting a planted aquarium recently, and I want to make sure I know everything about planted aquariums.:-D So, are planted aquariums hard to maintain? Are they harder to maintain than unplanted tanks? How often would I need to do a water change? And how often would I...

    How often do I need to replace the filter cartridge? I have a relatively new 5 gallon tank with a Tetra Whisper filter (uses medium cartridges). The tank houses one betta, 4 shrimp and several live plants.

    I am a relatively new owner of three bettas, hence the name :-) Recently I discovered my little betta guy has lost his color and has fin rot, but after perusing this forum and reading a lot of threads, I know how to treat him. I feel bad for being a neglectful owner :cry: because my bettas are...

    New tank turned green in an hour! Green tank in only an hour after putting my fish in I finally moved my female betta from a 1g to a 10g. I got a filter, and I had two spare heaters. It's a planted tank, no hood. I had the filter running all night, with everything nice and ready. Plants...

    I have just upgraded to a slightly larger and higher quality tank, a Fluval III. Before I had Petco's two gallon hexagonal aquarium (but with the sand/plants/etc. it held fewer than two gallons) and I was doing two partial and one full water change a week. I know that this tank can hold more...

    I received two betta fish, kind of as a gift. Long story, short: I kept them in two separate 1 gallon bowls for two weeks, one died (partially to over-feeding) and that prompted me to research proper betta care. I moved my remaining betta to a heated, filtered 10 gallon aquarium with a couple...

    So yeah, I badly need to siphon out poop and whatnot but I've got the snail babies and I don't know what's on the floor. I know I've got some up on the floating plant, but... the plant needs cleaning as well. How do I clean up without losing all the snails? I really want to see what they'll turn...

    I'm currently looking into setting up a 5.5 gallon tank. As this will be my first time keeping such a "large" tank, I was wondering what "deep cleaning" would look like or if it would even be needed? I plan to have a few plants (probably some java moss, anubias nana and a marimo moss ball) in a...

    Hi, Im relatively new to aquariums in general but have always thought bettas were awesome!! I recently got one and he lives in a 2.5 gallon tank. I have a very small filter it creates a little current but he doesn't seem to mind it. The question I have is what is the best way to go about...

    Howdy everybody! I am new to this website, new to forums, new to fish keeping, and new to bettas. I bought a very nice red betta about three weeks ago. And like most people I was not prepared to take care of him. After dropping $100 on an aquarium, heater, decor, ect... I am on my way to taking...

    Yes I know the title sounds awful. So I accidentally put lotion on my hands a few minutes ago. I absolutely NEED to change my boys water NOW. I was wondering if there is any way to remove the lotion from the top layer of my skin? I can't wait the usual hour because we need to leave the house...
