    I put my Betta directly into a new tank, after I had brought up the temperature and added conditioner. The bubble stone seems too strong, and after reading all the posts about cycling, I feel I should go get a larger tank (5 gal?) with a filter system for good BB growth. In the meantime, while...

    I know people say not to mess with pH, but my tap water is very high. I'm talking around 8.4 high. My betta always stresses after water changes and I noticed as i was pouring out my tank pH test into the sink that the vial water turned blue as it hit the tap water, so i did a tap water test...

    I recently bought a male half-moon betta from my local PetSmart. I have owned 2 other betta fish in my lifetime, as well as African Aquatic Dwarf Frogs. This betta, (named Pluto) has been fine the first two days but now shows a large interest in hiding/sleeping. He comes up for air and every...

    I just upgraded my 5 gallon aquarium to a 10 gallon and decided that it was time to purchase a filter, since the aquarium is so large. I ordered the Aqueon QuietFlow 10, and installed it yesterday. From what I've observed, the current it creates is way too strong for my betta. He seems to have...

    Hello all, fist time post here. I have 4 Bettas, rotating though various tanks of 2.5, 5, & 10 gallons. All tanks have a hefty chunk of java moss, and I'll be adding water hyacinths in a few days when they finish quarantine. I use tap water filtered with a beefy charcoal filter, treat it for...

    So I put my boy, Finn, in his tank yesterday, and he's really not doing well. I mostly suspect it's stress, but there are so many variables that changed recently, that I got nervous and just moved him back to his original tank. Here is the "long version" just to make sure all details are...

    Same stuff, different day! It seems that I'm having yet another issue with my baby boy :-( I'll start from the beginning... When I bought my little Scuba home, he was an ordinary, blue betta. Of course, as he settled into the small container I kept him in, he became brighter, but his head...
