    I'm moving from the east coast to the west coast, the trip will take 5 days and 4 nights. I'll be taking my Batta in the car with me. I have checked the web on the safest way to move him. This is what I have decided to do. I have bought a 1 gallon insulated jug that I'll fill half full of...

    I really appreciate anyone's insight! I have some questions! A.) cycling B.) moving long distance with a "cycled" tank A.) I've read a lot about cycling online, and bare with me more experienced aquarists, but, I am still having a hard time understanding the technical need for cycling. I've...

    Hi guys, this is very trivial to me. I am moving house but it is only 20-30 minutes from my old place. I have 4 betta's and I will move them all at once, in Australia bettas come in bags you cut to let them out and not cups that can be reused. How should I transport all my boys safely and at...

    I will be moving within the next week and then again in a month. :shock: Anyway, my bigger tanks are going to be packed away and moved down first thing, which means three of my bettas are being downsized to a 1 gallon and most likely 2 .5 gallon tanks for a month. (Don't start about frequent...

    Hi, I've been lurking since Christmas, when I was given one of those desktop tanks for three fishes. I've never had fish before, but these fish are awesome. Right now I'm almost done cycling a divided 20g long tank with some live plants and a good heater, and my husband just found out we're...

    After a previous thread, and much advice, I decided to bring my bettas with me on my epic 22 hour trip from Missouri to Arizona. They are all traveling in their own one gallon jugs (see through) and stabilized nicely. They even come inside the hotel at night so they Dont get cold! Any advice...

    So I'll be moving about an hour north and want to take Franky with me. It'll be pretty cold (moving in November probably), but if I can get a cooler big enough to hold his 2.5 gallon tank and heater, and pack it in blankets and foam, then I think he'll be fine. I'd have the heat on in the car...

    Hi Guys, I am moving up North for a new job, and will be driving about 16.5 hours to get to my new place in a week and a half (getting the job was unexpected and it all happened very suddenly). I plan to break the journey into a 6.5 and a 10 hour day with an overnight at a cabin with heat and...
  11. Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have a 20 gal tank and I finally have it setup the way I want it to, but, and there always seems to a but somewhere, my male betta doesn't seem too pleased with it, even though there are still plenty of room for him to swim around in. As soon as I get a decent enough heater, since the one I...

    So I'm probably moving from Missouri to Arizona in September. I know it's quite a ways away but I still want to be prepared. :) I have LOTS of bettas. I can't say no to them. I have three males and eight females (I'm possibly adopting out two females). My females all live together, so during...

  14. Betta Fish Care
    Hello all, I recently bought a Betta fish. It's so much fun! I'm enjoying him way more than I imagined. He's nice to come home to from a stressful day at University. Holidays are coming up, and I was wondering what the best way to transport my fish home would be. I've read some advice about...
  15. Betta Fish Care
    Hey so I'm going home for a couple weeks this Thanksgiving. I'm gonna have to bring my beta with me since I have no one to take care of him while I'm gone. I was wondering what was the safest and best way to do this. He lives in a small 1/2 gallon bowl and I have an 11 hour drive I still have...

    Hey everyone! I'm going back to school tomorrow. Its a little over an hour drive from where I am currently. I know about how to transport my planted 5 gal tank (lower water level, plastic wrap over the top to prevent spills), and kept the cup I got my boy in. I just wanted your opinion on WHEN...

    and I need some input. Bowser and Honey will be the easiest ones, but the boys, rabbits, oto and Kite are going to be hard. Kite most def because I'm scared of hurting his/her fins simply by trying to get it into the net. Honey I can put in a cup of water, make sure it stays warm and Bowser can...

    I am going off to college. It is six hours away and I am planning on bringing my Betta with me. We will stop halfway (3 hours) for the night. I was wondering if you had any traveling advice such as what to transport him in? I would love if it could be a relatively stable ride for him. I also...

    I just wanted to share my thoughts on when you have to find new homes for your bettas. I am moving far away, far enough that I am flying, and into someone else's home where they don't want a bunch of aquariums all over the place. So I placed an ad on Craigslist and couldn't believe people...

I have 4 male bettas, 3 filtered and heated 5 gal tanks and one 3 gal bowl. The bowl is currently in the living room atop our entertainment center while...
