  1. Corydora Freak Accident

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hey everyone, So this is actually about my smaller peppered corydora, Simon (of Simon and garfunkel). Four days ago he got stuck in one of the new leaves growing from a plant in the aquarium. Ive had both him and the plant for months and no issues before. I think he was stuck for at least 5...
  2. 5 gallon Betta tankmates?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I recently bought my 5 gallon tank (Fluval spec v) for my betta, and wanted to add some tank mates for him. Would 1 nerite snail and 2 ghost shrimp be too much?
  3. Need Tankmate for Betta!

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    My old betta recently died of fungal infection (I tried to save him, new tank and everything,) and I'm looking to get a new one. My old betta lived in a super small tank with another betta, it was one of those torture chambers you buy at the pet store. The total tank size was 0.8 gallons, but it...
  4. I'm thinking about a tank upgrade

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I currently have a male betta with a zebra snail in a small heated tank at about 83 degrees. They have one real plant and a silk plant. I don't have a ton of room but I am thinking about upgrading to a three to five gallon tank. My betta does not seem aggressive. When I added my first mystery...
  5. Advice! New Betta & Tankmate!

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    So I just recently got a half-moon double-tail Betta. He's very pretty and I really like him. He is also my first fish. He's a very chill calm fish, I suppose. He doesn't move around a whole lot when I'm around. He likes to hide behind plants or the filter. Yesterday I got him a tankmate! I...
  6. Small tank and a curious fish

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello! I have an extremely curious piebald blue/white DT named Sherlock. He's constantly watching me and checking out his environment, and I'd love to put a tankmate in with him to stimulate him further. I realize that my options are severely limited with my tank- it's only 2.5 gallons and I'd...
  7. Black Neon Tetras and Betta?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello! I am a new aquarium owner! In the past month I got a 20 gallon tank for my betta who was in a 3 gallon bowel before and I wanted him to have more room after the early death of my previous betta :( who was in a 1 gallon poor guy. But 20 gallons is a lot of space for just a betta and I want...
  8. Worried about Tankmate

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, So I had two fish, in a 5 gallon tank with a filter and a heater. One, Plato, was a small crowntail with a tiny stomach and he'd often get bloated if I fed him more than every other day. Zeus is a regular betta whom I've only seen overfed once or twice. Anyway, last week I came home...
  9. 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...
  10. Fish compatibility to established betta tank

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Not quite sure if the title makes a lot of sense... BUT. I am curious about adding a tank mate for my betta that has been established alone in a 3 gallon tank for 4 months, and has just been moved to a 10 gallon tank for about a month and a half now. He seems to be doing fairly comfortably...
  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. 3.5 Gallon Tank, wants tankmates!! Suggestions????

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hey, I'm new to raising bettas but hopefully I'll raise them for years to come! (fingers crossed) :-P Anyways, So I originally had a 0.8 gallon tank and heater but read that was too small for Amber, my crowntail betta (from here, I may refer to Amber as girl, I am aware that he's a boy, but my...
  13. Need help finding a friend for Gus :)

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    The Story: I will be moving in a year to a larger place and the place I will be going to has enough space for a nice 10-15gal fish tank. While pricing the supplies I would need at my local Walmart, I found Gus. He was a pitiful little Metallic Veiltail Betta in a little cup of water that was...
  14. Thinking about adding some Ghost Shrimp to my 10 gallon with Honeycomb...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hey everybody! I am going to Petsmart tomorrow to pick up some supplies for the 10 gal, and i thought that since i now have a moss ball that is thriving in my tank, why not try out some shrimp with Honeycomb? I was only planning on 2 or 3, just to see how he handles them(he seems pretty mellow)...
