  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have had Ich in my tank for a month now. I have the tank heated to 84 degrees F and do 10 percent water changes weekly and it's gotten better. There are no white spots on my Betta (Rufio), but I still see parasites in my tank! I've also tried FungusCure, which is supposed to be a mild...

    So I've got a new tank and such for my betta boy. I'm also getting live plants for his new home. While researching this I've seen a lot about a snail called ramshorns. Many call them a nuisance and others are just fine with them. I'm confused as to which of the two they are. Are they beneficial...
  3. Betta Fish Care
    I am a college freshman and I brought my betta with me. He's been with me for about a year and three months. I actually got him on my last day of school. I had just completed my aquaculture class and was inspired to get a fish and care for it. My teacher suggest I start with a betta because...
  4. Betta Fish Care
    Well as the title would suggest, I'm a new Betta owner and I love my boy very much but lately he seems to be acting very lethargic and spends most of his time just floating around at the bottom of his tank. He's in a 2 gallon tank (I plan on upgrading to a 5 gallon in a few weeks) he doesn't...

    Greetings to you all! I am new to this forum and would love to develop my fish keeping skills here with Nigel (CT Betta). I wanted to know what would be the recommended Power head flow rate that is needed to filter a 50 Litre or 13.2 US gallon tank? This tank is quite old and has a built-in...

    Hi, all. I have a Tetra Whisper 3i (Bio-Bag) filter, and I am not sure how to go about changing it. I have a few questions! :) 1. Do I keep the fish in the tank while changing the filter? 2. Do I insert a completely new cartridge or do I re-use the old one (and if I re-use the old one, do I...
  7. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My two and a half year old betta died last night of what I assume was Dropsy. My husband had been taking care of him for the past nine months while I was abroad and he had treated him with Maracyn Two once before, and it saved him, but two days ago he got sick again rather suddenly and we...

    I took a picture of Beaux's tank today and I want to make sure it's ok for him. I just got him from a friend who didn't want him and wasn't taking care of him so I want to make sure he's healthy and happy. I have a 2.5 gallon. No filter, gravel, a heater, a thermometer, a ceramic cup, some...

    So- here's the thing. We all love our bettas and we want to show off their tanks. But here's what I want to see- I want to see how your tank changes on a daily basis. What happens to it? The answers may surprise us! (especially if the tank is planted) So- here's what I propose- Every day, we...
  11. Betta Fish Care
    Hi everyone, I'm the new caretaker of a little lavender bodied, red finned fish named Alvin. He resides in my 5 year old's room, and for reasons that should be obvious, I really want the little guy to live. He's in a 2.5 gallon aquarium with a little heater, filter, decorations to hide in...
