  1. Journals
    So, rather than continue on my Opalo's 3 gallon planted Picotope journal, I decided it would be best to create a new betta journal for my many small tanks - only two of which are NPTs. :-) So, as for my bettas... First came Opalo: Opalo is a cellophane delta male. I got him back in February...

    Perhaps it's premature to start a journal thread, since I literally don't own anything I'll need for this tank - besides the betta, a bag of substrate, and some plants. But, the ideas for this tank are just floating around in my head right now, and I need a place to write them down! A bit of...
  3. Planted Betta Tanks
    I'd really like to add a bit of black sand to my two planted tanks. Both tanks are cycled, and have been set up for a few months now. They have bettas and snails. How would I go about adding new sand? Just drain the tanks and dump it in around the plants? Should I take the fish and snails out...

    I have two plants for my 5g and want to double check how I put them in. If you could just write a step by step really quick (or link me to one) so I don't miss anything, that would be amazing. Thanks.

    My Betta journey, since I got him in March, has been a huge 'learn the hard way' experience. I had been wanting a Betta for some time and just I jumped right in one day thinking he could live small, but couldn't stand to see him suffering in just one gallon of water. Next came the used...

    Here's a video of my betta and his 3 gallon tank that I took today. Hope you like it. :-) I put a link in my journal as well, but thought I'd post it here so more people could see it... http://youtu.be/cR8jWa6Gu-A

    I think it would be nice to have a place to talk about my little project, the future iwagumi betta Picotope. I'll probably use this thread to post updates on the tank, test results and plant updates, silly things Opalo does, and anything else related to the tank. :-) Latest pic: (4/3/14)...

    Here we go! Got suggested to make a journal so I decided to. I will post links to avoid taking up space. Also, don't have lenses on hand for photo's like this right now so I'll be using my phone for the start. (Only lens on hand has sharpness problems and doesn't take great macros :-(). Here...

    I have been swooning over betta sororities lately, so I made myself a promise that the next tank I got would be a sorority. I never thought my new tank would end up 100+ gallons. A little backstory: I was on craigslist and I saw an ad for a free fish tank. I has a crack, but my dad said he can...

    So, I went to my LFS and bought some Duckweed! And it's from a tank with... Gouriamis in it but, all the fish looked very healthy. The water was crystal clear and well, my question is: Should I disinfect the duckweed? How would I do it? I'm leery about disinfecting it just because well, from...

    I just cleaned my betta fish tank. It is a planted 2.5 gallon tank. I noticed that there is a little bit of algae growing in the tank and a lot of algae inside the substrait. I am thinking of getting some sort of fish or snail to suck it up some. What kinds of sucker fish or snails can I put...
  12. Planted Betta Tanks
    Hi there! I'm planning on getting some things today for my first ever planted tank! :D I'm super excited however I'm confused over a few things. At the moment I've read the sticky about how to do a natural planted tank and I believe my shopping list looks like this: 1 ten gallon tank kit, new...

    Woo, so I had my "tester tank" with my 5 gallon and it made me decide to try to get in deeper with the planted tank world. This is going to be the journal of my transition and everything i've learned. It's more for me than for the community, i'd just like to have a place to keep track of...

    I'm loving my new Fluval Spec III. Just wanted a place for Spec owners to show off, share their problems, mods, thoughts, and experience with these amazing little all in one tanks. Calling out all Spec owners, where you at?!?!!! :-D

    I am starting a bare bottom 10 gallon tank, but right now it looks really plain and ugly. I need suggestions on how to decorate it, so could you guys post some pics of your bare bottom tanks for me to use as examples. I especially want to see tanks with live plants, but any design is good...

    Hi bettafolk, A while back I had my betta fish in a very small bowl with no filtration. He suffered some severe fin rot and almost passed from a mysterious ailment that had him sideways on the bottom of the tank. Today he is very happy and fully recovered in his new planted tank. Rot /...

  19. Meet the Betta Keepers
    Hey! Been browsing this place for a while. Decided I'd show off my first serious tank. After years of my childhood spent keeping betta in those 4 cups of water death traps, I decided to seriously spoil mine... so here's the creatively named Mr. Fishie, my dark blue veiltail, in his new Aqueon...

    Right now in my office I have a 2 gallon planted tank and I was thinking about getting a betta fish to put in it. I have a heater laying around so I'm not worried about the winter or the air conditioning, but it may get to hot. On the weekends, when they turn off the AC, the temp in the room...
