  2. Temperature PLEASE READ HELP

    Betta Fish Care
    Hello! I have two bettas in separate 8 gallon tanks. I have had heaters for awhile but recently i purchased a new thermometer that’s more accurate and found out my digital thermometers were WAY off.

  3. Temperature range 77-84 degrees

    Betta Fish Care
    I have my beta (Donnie) in an 8 gallon tank with a heater, filter etc. When it is hot the water temp reaches 84 degrees, overnight it drops to around 77 degrees (my heater kicks in at anything under 76). The temp doesn't stay at 84 for too long, maybe a couple of hours. Is this harmful to my...
  4. Recovering from nonfunctioning heater

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My betta, Vladimir, has been lethargic for a couple of weeks now. I grew concerned after noticing clamped fins, so I changed the water a little more often and fed him earlier I the day, to no avail. I overlooked that the heater was broken, and my thermometer read 72 degrees Fahrenheit! I bought...

  6. 75 Degrees??

    Betta Fish Care
    Okay I'm torn, I just bought a Marina C10 heater for my 1.5 gallon tank (no judging). It is supposed to be preset for 78 degrees, it seems to only be able to get it to barely 76 degrees, more like 75 (room temp water is 70). I just bought a hydor 25w, and have yet to use it but I'm thinking.. am...
  7. Al is spending all his time on heater!

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi all, I got my fishy, Alexander Hamilton, about 2 and a half weeks ago. We got him a 2.5 gallon filtered tank (I know, arguably too small) along with an aquarium decoration (a fake piece of broken pottery), a fake plant and a betta hammock. He seemed VERY happy (tracking our fingers, eager...
  8. Too hot in the summer

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    During the summer my 5 gallon tank gets around 82-84 degrees. My house has no air conditioning and there's no better place in the room to put the tank (it can only be in my room). I've tried keeping the fan on it but it didn't make much of a difference. Is there any way to cool it down that...
  9. Tetras and Guppies

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello everyone. I have a quick question concerning tetras and guppies: Is it possible to safely house tetras and guppies in the same water conditions as bettas or do they have specific requirements in terms of temperature, pH, water hardness, etc.? Thanks.
  10. No clue on how to treat my betta...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So it's a long story, and I'm not proud of it. But my male crown tail Finley (1 year old) recently got into an almost fatal temperature shock. I took him out of his 5 gal filtered tank to do a 75% water change (recent nematode infestation due to live plants). His water was 5 degrees too warm...
  11. Tank Troubles.

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hey all. So I just got my second Betta and am having some unforeseen troubles with his tank. It's only 1.5 gallons, since it's really all that I have room for right now. I'm kind of worried that the filter is creating too powerful of a current. Any suggestions? Also, how would you go about...
  12. Suggestions for light

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    My tank is currently holding steady at 84.7f (we don't have AC). My fish is romping and dancing about like his usual self, but from what I've read, that's not a good temp for them. I know the Aqueon light is giving off heat. I went to the pet store today to buy a new LED light set up, but they...

  14. Water Change

    Betta Fish Care
    I am about to do my first water change(only 25%) and I read that the water you add should be the same temperature as the water in the tank. The water in the tank is 80 degrees due to a heater so how do I get the new water to be 80 as well. Do I just play around with the faucet and thermometer...
  15. Heating Problems (my house is an ice box)

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Not really an ice box but my room is on the corner of the house so its really cold all the time in the winter, which has now caused my tank's temp to drop down to between 72-74 depending on the time of day. I've considered buying a better heater that I can adjust, but would like to know if...

    Hello, I am so stumped. I have a betta who I thought had constipation (due to this new food from the store which came recommended) but in fact I believe he has dropsy. His stomach keeps swelling. I have been changing his water every day, adding epsom salt and he keeps expanding but he...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi all, my first post here and it's not great news. We now suspect that our betta suffered a serious temperature shock when the new 50w heater (installed 48 hours ago) raised the temperature from a steady 73`F to 78`F within a few hours. I'll try to be thorough: Housing What size is your...
