    I purchased five guppies about two weeks ago form a local petco know for pretty decent fish. The guppies were quarantined for a week before I put them in a ten gallon with my betta.

    Planted Betta Tanks
    Hello everyone, I've finally decided to stop circling around a planted tank and go ahead with one.

  7. Agressive ADF?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Lately, I've noticed that one of my frogs, IHOP, has been hopping up to and biting at Rufio. I am convinced that she thinks that he is food and I'm already seeing little tears in his fins. I'm concerned for my fish and I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem and how they dealt with it...
  8. Babies in a ten gallon tank

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    About a week ago I went to Petco and saw that they were selling babies. While I don't think Petco should be doing this because they are kept in terrible conditions, I felt bad for these little guys and bought two that looked quite lively in their tiny little cups. I couldn't just let these...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So, it appears I made a mistake. All those times I thought I was asking how many times I should clean a 5 gal.- Turns out it's a ten gallon. How many times should it be cleaned? Still wanting to move Scout in there.
  10. Cory Catfish?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I'm planning on getting a ten gallon soon and putting 3-5 Cory Catfish in there with one male betta. Is that enough room for them? Also, how many female bettas can I keep in ten gallon as a sorority? Many people told me I should keep at least five together, but others say 3-4 is just fine.

  16. What is the best filter for a ten gallon tank?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I want a lighter filter obviously. I want a filter that is virtually impossible for a betta to get stuck in it, because that's what happened with one of my filters. I want to upgrade my betta to a ten gallon tank and I was wondering what the best filter is?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    My betta male lives in a filtered, heated ten gallon tank. I would really like to get a tank mate for my betta. I am deciding between 3 african dwarf frogs, or 3 ottos.
