    Hi everyone! I'm new to this site, but I have a Betta that has been doing decently since I got him from Petco. Took him a week or so to start swimming, but since then he's been swimming a lot and pretty happy. I've had trouble with keeping this brownish grey slime in his tank away, but I do...

    It's a 25w Hydor Theo that has been in my tank for quite a while w/ no problems and maintains my tank temperature beautifully.

    Hi all, I've noticed over my past few water changes (it seems like) there's been more slime than usual over the decoration in the tank and on the tank walls. By slime I don't mean anything visible or out of the ordinary, just the normal coat which accumulates. It's the type of gooey thing you...

    The slime is clear. I just changed the water and scrubbed the slime off with a aquarium sponge from petsmart. Also, I have 3 baby plants(java fern), so what should i raise them in, a plastic clear cup with a lid and dosage of fertilizer, or a clouded plastic tube that contained my lucky bamboo...

    Sadly, my little red boy who I loved dearly and was very special to me 'Flame' died, he stayed strong, suffered for 1 week holding on to his dear life, waiting for me to come home after my exams...

    Tohru is my male fish who I think Is a crowntail. Housing What size is your tank? I'm not sure. It's about the size of a milk gallon. I plan on getting a bigger one soon. What temperature is your tank? I heard that heaters in tanks under 2.5 gal cold kill them, so I don't have one. The...

    So I have been a Betta owner for a few years, and as of the last year and a half all my Bettas have been having untimely demises and I can't figure out for the life of me why. The last one I just got was a beautiful blue crown tail. When I picked him up from the store he looked very healthy...
