    Hey guys! It’s been a while sine I started my Betta +guppies thread (A long time) SO I’ll give a brief recap of how that went. Originally bought 5 guppies, two male three female. Over the course of times the females and a male died before having any fry, leaving only Phoenix, a yellow and green...

  3. 10 gallon rescue betta compatibility

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    So, I was at a party a week ago and found this little guy in a three gallon tank(the fish in my profile picture). His tank had very little water, lots of uneaten food from over feeding, and no filter. Suffice to say something had to be done, so I bought him on the spot. So, Njord is now in a...
  4. Betta Sorority + Platies

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I was recently given permission to buy a 20 gallon tank to put in the my kitchen, with one condition. It had to be a bunch of fish living together (my dad isn't a fan of dividers or how they look). So, I jumped at the chance to finally get my dream females. I did a bunch of research on...
  5. Ich and Platy, How High Can I Go?

    Other Fish
    So yeah I made a noob mistake. Had an empty ten gallon decided to stock and picked up 3 platies. I noticed one itching and waited to be sure before starting any legitimate treatment and yesterday I found she did in fact have and spread ich to my other two. I want to know if it'd be safe to bump...

    Other Fish
    I have 3 gold mickey mouse platy in my 10 gallon tank right now with some peppered cory (waiting to put one of my bettas in it when she's big enough). I was able to sex them at 2 females 1 male. I have no doubt that they will eventually have fry in there... livebarers man... they're like...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have a 20 gallon community tank with a baby bristlenose pleco, male betta, and 3 platys (just got the platys today). Since i introduced the platys, my betta has been chasing them on and off. He never seems to do any harm to them, but will chase them for maybe a minute then retreat to the...

    Other Fish
    I added 3 platies to my betta tank 2 days ago and they seem to get along fine but i've noticed today that there's one platy who is always separated from the others and stay in my ornament (see picture below).

My mother instantly...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hey everyone! So yesterday I went to petco to buy a breeding net, and came home with a 15 gallon tank, oops! (But it was on sale super cheap, so I couldn't help myself ;-)) I feel in love with Drarwf Gouramis recently and would love to get two, but I'm wondering how they might pair with a...
  14. Betta with Platys?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello! I was wondering if I could have a betta and 3-4 platys living together in a 10 gallon aquarium. Would the betta be too agressive towards the platy? Thanks! :-)
  15. My new 10 gallon community appears to be a success!

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I just traded my Fluval Edge for a full 10 gallon setup and four panda platys. So far it seems to be a success! The betta and platys will look at each other, then get bored and investigate the plants. No flaring from the betta and the platy seem more curious than anything. Thanks for all of...
  16. Some friends for a betta... could get interesting.

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Charging headlong into danger, as ever, it's Norichan. Mongkut is an easily bored fish, so I bought him some platies today. I gradually gave him more access to them until now, they've been in the tank for about ten minutes without the bag or net. He seems almost offended? I've kept a careful...
