  1. Betta Fish Care
    Before I cleaned my bettas tank there were bubbles at the top so immediately I thought it was a bubble nest. But, when I took half of the water out, the bubbles stuck to the side of the tank and did not pop (as shown in the pictures) are these snail eggs?
  2. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I’m not quite sure if this falls under betta emergencies/diseases but it was my best guess. My English is bad sometimes I’m sorry. I have bunch of pest snails from plants I bought, I originally only had three and they had lots of babies, they were 30 babies and all the size of tiny sand so...
  3. Betta Fish Compatibility
    So, I've recently gotten a baby betta and nerite (i think that's how you spell it) snail. Every time I go to check on the homies, Zuko (my betta) is near/around Chick Hicks (the snail). With that being stated, I was wondering if my fish could bond or form some kind of symbiotic relationship with...

    I’ve been reading up on snails, and I wondered.... my tank has a couple of openings in the lid for the filter and for feeding (I prefer lifting the lid, to be honest), so if I were to get a snail of any kind, I’d need to cover those gaps. Would cheese cloth across those openings be a viable...

    Okay so I think this guy is a mystery snail. He spent an entire day inside his shell and when i woke up he was floating. I took him out and put him in a separate 1/2 gallon tank just in case, and im glad i did. Hes got this weird clearish fuzzy looking stuff on his body, and he cant seem to move...
  6. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, I have a male betta named Casper as well as 2 nerite snails in my tank. Casper was healthy this morning when I greeted him. I walked away from the tank for 30 minutes and I came back to his tail looking like this! It looks like a snail got on his tail and started ripping at the sensitive...

    I’m setting up my 6 gallon planted tank, and getting an apple snail. I will also be either getting a betta or cherry shrimp in the future. Will the snail do by themselves, or should I get a second snail?
  8. Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello! I just joined, thank you. :) Our family has two bettas that were labeled at Petco as “baby females”...we quickly got a second tank as one betta seemed to constantly be pecking at the other (smaller) betta. Our tanks are the 2.1-gal Imagitarium filtered, and we have a small heater in each...

    So not a fish, but still not a betta so I guess I'll put this here. A while ago a got some new plants and noticed what I thought was a ramshorn snail on them. Super small, the size of a pin head. I left it alone and haven't seen it since. Now I've found this one and I'm not sure if its the...

    Hi there! Hoping you can help me with this! I have a lovely little betta who has spent 2 weeks in is new tank so that he can settle in. I'm now looking to get a couple of small fish to act as good tank cleaners for food that falls to the bottom of his tank. He's a silly fish that refuses to eat...

    Pretty new to this forum but addicted already going through posts. I have in a 5 gallon tank - one male betta (Gandalf), and two apple snails (Brownie & Gertrude). We got Gandalf after Jose's passing. He was in our friend's care while we were gone for two weeks in Maui. Jose's tank was fully...
  12. Planted Betta Tanks
    Two days ago I decided to go buy a new plant for my betta boy. He absolutely loves it and there already is a huge bubble nest around it. Yesterday, I noticed that he was swimming rapidly and sort of flaring around one spot, as if observing something in a rather predator manner? Maybe I'm wrong...
  13. Meet the Betta Keepers
    I know it's a long read, but I didn't want to exclude anything that may help you in solving my dilemma with me! My Betta Legolas (yeah I have a Lord of the Rings theme) has been thriving for 8 months. I had him in a way too small 1.5 gal bowl for the longest time, and I decided I wanted to...
  14. Planted Betta Tanks
    I bought plants for my 5 gallon tank and it is about 3.5 weeks old. I just today noticed a hitchhiker!!! The snail is small with a rounded shell that has black specs on it. I don't see a head or body; it appears to be fully enclosed within the shell but still is moving. See below pics. Can...

    Hello Yesterday I got the 'bright' idea to add two baby Ramshorn snails to my 4g with sand for a substrate. The MTS and Bladder snails loved it, so I thought that they would like it too. Wrong. Today, one of the two was in the font of the tank not moving. Inside of the shell was about 5 little...
  16. Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello! I recently go a betta who is honestly not the brightest fish I've ever had. He is a strange eater who takes floating pellets and spits them onto the bottom of the tank and then proceeds to make a mushy mess over the span of a few hours. It's really quite something. So I thought...
  17. Finless Friends
    Hi, I had a mystery snail in my betta tank (sadly, no longer with us) and also added a small plant that I hadn't quarantined (dwarf anubias), so I'm not sure what the origin is of my new little shelled friends, but I'd love it if someone can help me to identify them. Are they friend or foe...

    Hi, My 5.5 gallon is occupied by one betta and many many apple snail babies. The amount of waste the snails are producing is out of control (and so are they tbh) and I think that the bad water quality gave my betta popeye. He is now in a separate tank until I figure out what to do with the...
  19. Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello, I've often used this site for information but this is my first post so I hope I don't do anything that goes against the rules. I have a 10 gallon heated and planted tank. My little guy Phin McCools just past away this week. Now I am 95% sure he passed away from constipation (I left...
  20. Betta Fish Marketplace
    Hello! I am looking for a purple/pink/magenta mystery snail. Does anyone have one available, or does anyone have breedings planned? I've searched all of the local fish stores to no avail, and the handful available on aquabid are being sold in multiples, which won't do since my tank is only five...
