    I stalk the disease board nearly every day so I can learn how to treat these lovely fish and so I can give advice to others confidently. Now today has been a rough day on the boards. So far I've seen a fish with no upper lip and fish with one eye because the other one fell out. So I have some...

And I have this around 50 - 55 gallon tank, it's a really old tank with a powerful filter, a heater, and all that type of stuff. The filter has been running for a long time, but MANY...

    Currently I am cycling an Evolve4 I picked up on clearance, not really like it too much, but that's not the point of this thread...

    So I recently just bought a 10 gallon tank with a heater and a filter after thinking my betta was sick. I also bought one of those cleaning hoses for the bottom of the tank. So I was just curious how I would perform a 50% water change? Should I get a bucket and and let it sit overnight with...
  13. Betta Fish Care
    Hello everyone! I'm relatively new to betta fish. I had a few when I was younger. They lived anywhere from 6mo to a year. I was not the primary care giver at the time. Merely an observer. I decided recently to give it another go. I thought I did my research, but it seems I missed a key step. I...

    So my dad and stepmom said I could get a betta (well, really any fish, but quite honestly I doubt I'd have room for many other fish).

    Ok so a couple weeks ago my male betta got a tear in his fin. So I thought maybe it was because of over flaring or a sharp plant. So I covered the sides of the tank and took out the sharpest plants and replaced them with silk ones. At first I thought he was getting better because I started...
