tank mate

  1. 10g planted sorority?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    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...

  4. Nerite Snail

    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...
  5. Algae?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    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...

  7. Buddy with his Morimo Moss Ball

    Betta Pictures
    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. :-)
  8. African Drawf Frog compatability

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    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...
  9. Help! New and worried Betta owner

    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...
  10. How many Oto with my Betta?

    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...
  11. TankMate?

    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.
  12. New tank? New friend?

    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...
  13. Male Betta and Molly tank mates?

    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?
