    Meet the Betta Keepers
    Hello everyone, I'm totally new to fish keeping but I've caught the elusive "betta bug" since my Aunt got me very special present for Christmas all the way back in 2015 (not that far lol).

    Planted Betta Tanks
    Hello, so I'm currently on vacation and have no access to my tanks. I want to set up my 5 g on my desk for a new betta. So far I'm going to order the 16" finnex stingray light.

I am trying to revitalize some swords in there right now using the stock light and I haven't been able to determine yet if the light qualifies as a "medium light"...
  9. Tentative Planning on a Planted 2.5gal glass tank

    Planted Betta Tanks
    Okay, so, y'all have given me so much inspiration in wanting to plant a tank properly (I've just got my goofy Lee's Critter Keeper) and since I would like to add in Roobios (from Adagio Teas, organic, and it's what I have on hand) tea, I worry about doing it with a plastic/acrylic tank. So...
