    Hello! I am a new fish owner. I have set up a 5 gallon tank, temperature is between 78-80, filter is going, water conditioner was added 3 days ago, and the biological enhancer has been added the last 3 days (as per instructions for new aquariums on the bottle). I have used the test strips to...

    Hi all, I just joined this site and I’m a new betta owner. I’ve had my guy for 3 days now and today he is no longer eating as of this morning. He also is just hanging out at the top of the water, mostly in corners floating. Not much swimming going on. He also seems very lethargic. I have him in...

    Hello Everyone! My name is Brit and I am a proud fish owner. I've had my little guy, Thrawn, for half a year so far and love him. He has just been upgraded from a 1.5G to a 5G tank! He loves it so far. Just wanted to join this and share my growing fish love with fellow fin friends. Nice to...

    Hello! I got a betta for my birthday the other day (I'd been talking about wanting one for a while, so it wasn't a total surprise, but I wasn't quite prepared for it). It's currently living in the little "betta kit" tank (pics attached), but I want to upgrade to something better. I've done some...

    Okay my betta has been in a filtered one gallon tank for about 3 weeks and I begged my mother and she finally brought me a heated and filtered 5 gallon tank.

    Hi Everyone! I've been doing a lot of research lately before welcoming my first Betta into our home. Fortunate for the Betta because there are so many misconceptions about their care that I may have fallen into a few of those "hardy" traps. My question is about filters. We plan on...

    Hi All, This is my first fish tank and I am on week 3 of the nitrogen cycling and I'm a little confused as to what is happening. Background: I have a 5 gallon tank, filter, heater, and everything has been set up for about a month and a half. I am doing a fishless cycle using Dr. Tim's Aquatics...

    My poor little guy Rumi is currently "surviving" in a 2.6 gallon heated and filtered tank. Not the worst thing in the world but he must be feeling a little claustrophobic, so I went ahead and ordered a 5 gallon Fluval Spec V tank. It looks super fabulous and has a pretty rad filtration system...

    My neighbor just gave us a mini-bow 5 gallon aquarium. The fish she had died and she didn't feel like getting a new one. She gave us the aquarium with the rocks, plastic plant and a stone structure thing for the fish the swim through. She didn't clean it because she said that we wouldn't have to...

    I recently moved my betta from a 1 gallon tank (unheated/unfiltered) into a 5 gallon heated and filtered. Yesterday I bought the filter and put it in and a few hours later the water was cloudy. So once I got home I switched him back into his old tank and cleaned the 5 gallon one and I tested the...
