tank setup

  1. Dechlorinator and filter setup order

    Betta Fish Care
    I'm not even sure if anyone will be able to answer this in time but I haven't been able to find a good answer anywhere else so I thought I'd give this a shot. I've got a new tank coming in the mail tomorrow and then a filter coming the next day. By tomorrow I'll have everything I need to set up...
  2. First betta tank help

    Betta Fish Care
    Hello! I got a betta for my birthday the other day (I'd been talking about wanting one for a while, so it wasn't a total surprise, but I wasn't quite prepared for it). It's currently living in the little "betta kit" tank (pics attached), but I want to upgrade to something better. I've done some...
  3. Moving from Heated to Unheated?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello all! So this week is Spring Break (hooray!) and I'm planning on going home for the next seven days. Obviously, this is way too long to leave my little betta alone - he'd starve! Right now, he's in a heated 5 gallon tank. Unfortunately, it'd be pretty hard to move all that home just for...
  4. Basic betta tank setup

    Betta Fish Care
    I already know about water changes, temperatures and PH levels. Just wanna know a few things: What types of plants do they like/need? What kind of filter is the best? type, brand, and where to get it etc. Do they need a bubbler? What kind of food is best for their diet? Gravel, sand, or none...
  5. Good Enough Filter?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I'm slowly gathering the materials for a 10 gallon tank, currently I only have the tank itself and possibly a filter. The filter I bought is a Penn-Plex Small World pump and filter kit. Would this be sufficient to filter the tank or would it be safer to return it and get a different one? I...
  6. New 110L (30 gallon) tank!

    Other Fish
    Hai everyone! On the weekend I purchased a 110 litre tank (30 gallons) I did get ripped of with the price but it looks a lot better than my last tank, not to mention bigger, has some minor damage but it's manageable, so over all I am pretty happy! Current fish in the tank; 7 male guppies 3...
  7. Too Many Plants?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hey all! I'm afraid to say I'm pretty new to betta keeping, so if this is a newbie question, I apologize. I just got a little double-tail male about three weeks ago, and I've been experimenting with the setup in his tank. I was worried at first that I had too many plants in there, but when I...
  8. First Betta Fish. Is his tank too full?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi guys. I'm setting up my first betta tank and I'm not sure if the log is too big for his tank or not. I want to make sure he has enough room to swim and enjoy, but I just need advice on setting it up. It's a one gallon tank. Can you let me know if the log is okay, or if I should just go with...
  9. Beginner 5-10gallon tank setup suggestions

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    New member here, although I've been a lurker for a while :) I currently have two female bettas, both housed separately in ~1 gallon glass bowls. I would like to upgrade them to a larger tank so they can be in a heated environment through the winter. I’m a student, so this tank will living with...
  10. Cloudy water in new tank?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    The other day i got a complete 10 gallon tank from a friend. i washed the gravel before setting it up, washed the tank and the decorations (silk plants, rocks) inside it. The tank was set up for a whole day before I took my new betta home. However, the water is still slightly hazy, and I thought...
  11. Rescue! and Tank Setups

    Betta Pictures
    A friend of mine took me to Walmart to help her with school supplies and we ended up in the fish section. I usually check up on them their betta because they get pretty decent stock and usually keep up with water changes pretty well. We were browsing through their betta and community tanks...
  12. Betta Tank Recommendations?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hello, I have a male Betta named Gizmo. I've had him for about six months now. He started out in a 3 1/2 gallon tank but as my love for him grew, I felt a very strong need to upgrade his tank. He's now in a 10 gallon tank, by himself, with six moneywart plants, a few whisperia plants, and...
  13. Please, need a ton of help.

    Betta Fish Care
    I haven't owned a fish since my father decided to keep a little tank for two years when I was seven. He did everything, I just named the pretty fishies. :/ Which leads to my current predicament. Someone brought a betta to my job at a restaurant Friday night. People were tapping on the tank, it...
