  1. Meet the Betta Keepers
    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...
  2. Betta Fish Care
    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...
  7. Betta Chat
    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...
  9. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    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...
