    I am a brand new betta owner and did a lot of research before selecting my tank, food, habitat. Because of limited space I chose a Fluval Spec III knowing I will have to be more rigorous in changing and monitoring water quality. I ran into a very odd problem in my betta's 1st week that really...

    Hello there! My girlfriend lives in a dorm where the only pet they can have is a fish. We probably got this betta fish a year ago and he's been through rough times. He's in a 1.2gal tank and has severe fin damage. He's not really active and I feel like he has no room. It makes me really...

    I bought my Betta a sponge filter and a little air pump, and I've been putting up with it's crap for too long. I have a real problem with white noise. It drives me absolutely insane.

    I just bought the Fluval Spec V and from reading reviews online I know that the current is too strong for bettas even when set on low. My first question is if there is any way to prevent this?

    Basically i moved my betta to a 5 gallon because his fin got ripped either attacked by tankmates, self inflicted or because the filter was too strong for him, i don't know. I bought this new filter, it says for delicate tropical fish but it seems too strong for the betta as when he passes by...

    I'm looking into switching to a sponge (or foam) filter. My fishies can't stand the current caused by my (heavily baffled!) filters. I'm not sure what brand is best? Anyone use the one shown in the attachment..... ? I have two ten gallon tanks with live plants, would a sponge filter be a...
