    Hello! New to this website so forgive me if I'm asking this question in the wrong forum, BUT... I'm looking to introduce some cherry shrimp to control my algae and a few tetras to control the shrimp into my 10-gallon tank. First off, is this a good idea? What would be a better alternative if...

    My Betta Peño glass surfs back and forth in his cycled 10 gallon tank when the lights are on. But just now when the lights were off in the room and only my phone flashlight was above the tank he was cruising around chilled and calm. I know bettas have bad darkness eyesight, but is he swimming...

    So I have a 5 gal. tank set up with some shrimp in it right now that is doing great. At least I think so. I was wondering if I would be able to get some tank mates with the shrimp or if I needed to upgrade to a bigger tank. The water I get is also pretty hard, so any recommendations for hardy...

    So four days ago I got a female Betta for my 10 gallon tank, along with some cherry shrimp and pristella tetras for my 20 gallon tank. I came home to my 10 gallon tank shattered to pieces (I have no idea how) and a flood in my living room 🤦‍♀️ With no where else to put her, I added the Betta to...

    So I am getting a betta for the first time ever but before I buy him/her I want to know some good tank mates. And yes I will monitor their behaviour before I buy a tank mate. So the tank I will get is a 3.5 gallon tank and I don't really want ghost shrimp but I will get them if that is what is...

    I’m sure this question has been asked about a MILLION times here, but I feel like there’s very mixed opinions and I’m just not sure haha. So my betta seems to be pretty chill other than flaring at his heater every once in a while and nipping his fins. I’ve started feeding him frozen food and he...

    Hi everyone! I'm in the process of prepping a 10 gallon "luxury" aquarium for my betta Cosmo and I'm looking for some advice on tankmates. The finished tank will be planted, filtered, and heated and will have lots of decorations/hiding spots. Cosmo is a very active, curious, and friendly betta...

    I started setting up a 10 gallon tank at the beginning of this month (2/4/19). Got some pure ammonia and added a tiny bit in then I used some Fluval bacteria additives to help it cycle and once the ammonia started dropping and the nitrates started to pop up (about a week after I started) I got...

    Hi!! I have a 10-gallon tank with a filter, heater, and thermometer purchased. I plan on going and buying a betta tomorrow for it. I have had bettas in the past but only in small 3 gallon tanks. I'm brand new to water filters and heaters and could use all the help I could get! Also was...

    I have two fish. The first one, the one I consider non-aggressive and "clean" Yukine, and the second, his polar opposite Niji. Back in December, I purchased two black mystery snails. One of them went into Yukine's tank the other went into Niji's. The main reason why I bought them was because...

    I have two Bettas, each in a separate tank with a black mystery snail. They've all lived together for about two weeks now and are getting along just well, but I had a question. I had a horned nerite snail a few months back, but it sadly passed away because I cleaned my fish's tank spotless...

    Hey guys! I love keeping betta with community fish and the an display to their tank mates (guarding certain places because it's his castle, etc, etc.) I'd love to hear your gatherings on what classifies as aggression vs. curiosity. What signs do they show towards new tank mates and how do they...

    Sorry in advance if I placed this under the wrong category I noticed that Drogon's pectoral fins have been getting smaller and what looks like some sort of dark build up around the edges (suspecting mild fin rot), so I'm considering adding some bettafix to his 10 gal. The thing is, it's a...
  14. Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello everybody! I currently have a 10 gallon tank with my one betta in it. When i bought my fish, it was advertised as a baby male betta but it seems like it may actually be a female and not a male as advertised. So I'm just wondering what possible tank mates I could put in that may betta will...

    I've been finding the idea of a sorority appealing and was thinking of getting a 20gal long tank. I'm currently doing research and due diligence but am finding conflicting information. Many claim they've successfully started one and others just say it's a bad idea. What do you think? If yay, do...
  16. Betta Fish Compatibility
    So I recently got a 55 gallon tank and I already have plans for dividing it, planting it and such. Now the big question is adding fish? I am going to take my friends two full grown plecos. One is a clown and the other is a rio ***** who both have been together for a few months now. I figured one...

    So I'm getting a new, 55 gallon, tank that I plan on dividing down the center. Frosted glass so they can't see each other of course lol. One side for each Betta since my 'one tank per room' idea isn't going well. I got the tank for free though which is a mega plus! I haven't had a tank this...

    Hi all! I'm new to the forum, so forgive me if I ask n00bish questions. I just got this 20 gallon tank: Sorry for the quality; I had just filled the tank, so the water is still "gassy". I'm waiting for the water treatment to do its thing, and still trying to find that "sweet spot" with the...

    I have a 10 gallon tank with sand. I'll be planting it after the holidays and once the plants grow in a bit I want to get some tank mates for my male betta. He's had tank mates before and has been fine. The problem is finding small tank mates that can handle the water conditions. Even filtered...
  20. Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello all, I've been tossing around the idea of getting my betta some tankmates. The reason why is I am not home during the day most days, and when I am out of his sight away from the tank, he just slowly circles and circles. But when I approach the tank, he watches me and everything I do like...
