    Hello everyone! I am happy to report that Petrie is no longer bloated and I decided to upgrade his tank and make some more room on my desk for it. He moved from a 1.5 to a 3.5 gallon (+heater and filter) and is loving life. I am however sad that I had to discard of his HUGE bubble nest when...

    I am still very new to the hobby and the forum, so please forgive any obvious mistakes. Yesterday I got a betta to go in a small tank in the bedroom. The tank is not cycled as I decided to go with fish-in-cycling, using filter media from an already established tank, along with Tetra Safe Start...

    Hi everyone! I have had betta fish before, but I recently got a new one for my birthday at the end of April! His name is Piggy, he is a male crowntail, and he has quite the personality! I originally had him in a glass bowl that my sister got from Walmart. This past weekend, I went to a great...

    Hi everyone! So my boyfriend and I are going to go buy a new lil friend tomorrow, our tank is fully set up and ready to go so we’re excited!

    Hi everyone. So because my sweet betta boy passed last night, I know I need to start cleaning out his tank and getting it ready for a new friend, whenever we are ready for one.

    I'm just getting back into fishkeeping after 11 years, and I'd like to try something new this time.

  11. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, I have just started my first sorority tank and after a lot of research, I am realizing I still did a million things wrong. So one thing I didn't think of was how to separate an injured girl. She is a sweetheart and was picked on by a few of the others to the point that a piece of her...

    Hello! I recently decided to upgrade from my 5 gal TopFin Hydro Change tank (don't worry, I actually use a gravel vacuum instead of the hydro change nozzle for water changes) to the 15 gal Fluval Flex tank to better accommodate my betta, plants, and maybe even a few new tank mates in the future...

    Hello! I recently brought home a new female HMPK female Betta. She was put into a 5 gallon, planted tank with 3 shrimp and a snail in there with her.

  15. Planted Betta Tanks
    This is my first tank! I read so much about the nitrogen cycle that my head could spin, so I decided to just move forward with what I learned and stop rereading everything so much. Now I’m looking for a little reassurance and guidance. I didn’t have a lot of confidence in any of the processes I...

    Hi, I rescued a betta fish from a local store. He was the only one active in his small cup and kept coming to greet me. Smaller than the rest of the bettas. Anyway, here I am with a fish in a cup. I used to have freshwater, then saltwater, but haven't done it in years. I got this fish a 10...

    I started setting up a 10 gallon tank at the beginning of this month (2/4/19). Got some pure ammonia and added a tiny bit in then I used some Fluval bacteria additives to help it cycle and once the ammonia started dropping and the nitrates started to pop up (about a week after I started) I got...

    Hey guys! I just recently bought a new tank and set it up for plants. (My first ever planted tank!) But now I'm worried my tank hood/light isn't enough for them? Here's what I have and have heard... Aqueon 10 Gal LED Aquarium Kit...
