    So my Betta has developed a problem with tail biting, and I am trying desperately to correct it. I figured I would give a tank mate a shot because I heard those can help, but I never intended to have more than a Betta when I set up my tank. It is only 5 gallons and is consistently at 79-80...

    Unfortunately, my male betta Charlie began pine coning severely. He was from Petco, bought about 7 months ago, and I think old age got the best of him (I suspected he was old when I purchased him) and weakened his immune system. He has been removed, is in a hospital tank, but I don't see him...

    Hi! I just purchased a Fluval Edge 6 gallon tank yesterday and I have began a fish-less cycle using ammonia. I plan to purchase a male betta once complete... can I provide him with any tank makes? I originally planned for something like a Kuhli Loach or Cardinal Tetras.. but fear the tank is...

    Hi there does anyone have any suggestions on what kinds of fish are good as tank mates for bettas and which aren't? Thank you :-)
  5. Betta Fish Compatibility
    So the other day I made a post about algae and someone recommended that I go out and buy a nerite snail... I did such today, but on the drive home a question came to mind; can a snail live in an aquarium that has salt in it? I also read online that snails are able to climb out of tanks that...

    I'm totally new to taking care of a betta, but I've had mine for about three months now and after dealing with fin rot and ich, another problem has seemed to have arose in my poor betta's tank. For starters, my fish lives in a 1.5 tank (I can't afford a new one; high school student here), with...

    I floated the morimo moss ball in the tank. I noticed Buddy likes to hang out where the moss ball is, swim around in, rest on it, and sometimes rub up against it. I think I will name the ball Teddy. :-)

    So... I bought an ADF today. And i'm worried, My betta keeps flaring at him (i don't know if that's the correct term or not). Kinda stalking him around the tank, but hasn't bit him or even touched him. Will they be okay together? Is he just not used to a tank mate and will simmer down? Or will I...
  10. Betta Fish Care
    I am in law school and live in an apartment with my betta in a 2.5 gallon tank but when I go home for an extended period of time he comes with me and goes into a 3.5 gallon tank. He has traveled with me 3 times now and is fine every time. He is a very good eater and eats as soon as he is...
  11. Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have a very easy going male Betta in a 10 gallon tank. He is 2 years old and has always done very well with tankmates (they have all either been moved to a larger tank, given away as gifts, or passed away). His glass tank is planted (medium to medium well I'd say) with a 5-15 gallon filter...
  12. Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I was wondering if it would be a good idea to get my Butterfly Delta Tail male-Felix-a small tankmate, like a snail or tiny frog. But, my betta sometimes likes to sleep on the bottom of the bowl where the frog would be.
  13. Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hi everyone! I've had my male betta for about a year now, his name is Fishy (oh so creative, I know) and he's a spunky little guy. He likes to jump for his food and watch TV (and people too!). I've been thinking about getting him a new tank for a little while now because the one I have has no...
  14. Betta Fish Compatibility
    Some people say yes, some say no. All depends on your betta's personality? I have 3 male betta's, in separate tanks of course, and I have 2 balloon/bloated molly's. Can these molly's go in with a betta in a 14 gallon tank?
