  1. Tetra compatibility (plus other tank struggles)

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I am trying to decide what to put with my male betta in a 20 Gal long. When I first got him I also placed 6 inpaichthys kerri (royal tetras) in with him on the recommendation of the fish store owner. Within a week, 5 of them had died, we think it was a bacterial infection somehow, so we treated...
  2. Advice on tankmates needed, please

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    How do I know new tankmates are good with each other? How do I know they're not stressing each other out? What behaviour should I be keeping an eye on? And how can I know it's going well? And also, should I take the fry out? Some background and further explanation for this: My Betta boy Ciel...
  3. New to Bettas, help?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello! I want to start of by saying I currently do not have any fish, at all. Not one. I do have 3 chickens but that's besides the point. I have an old tank in the loft that's nice but after all my last fish passed away (there were some tears) I decided that next time I wanted something...
  4. 20L gallon tank stocking

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have a 20L gallon with a male betta and a small school of cory cats. It is around 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and there are 2 filters: An Aqueon QuietFlow 20 and a Tetra Whisper 10i. The betta is very calm (curious, but once he realizes it isn't food he leaves it alone) and gets along fine with his...
  5. Will A Female Betta Kill Tetras??

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    So I seem to be losing neon tetra out of the blue and it is pretty darn worrisome. I have a 10-gallon tank. For the past two months it has had one female betta, HAD 8 tetra, and some live plants. I did a full nitrogen cycle before adding any fish - and according to my API master kit the water...
  6. Tetra Brand 5g Tank Kit?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Has anyone here used any Tetra brand tanks? More specifically, has anyone had any major issues with one? Its very affordable as they come with everything, and I have an extra heater if the one it comes with is finicky. I can also baffle the filter if it's too strong. But I'd like to know if...
  7. Getting fish for the big tank!

    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.

  9. New Tank Stocking

    Other Fish
    As I posted on my journal, my betta Spi died yesterday, and now I am looking to restock my tank ASAP, as I am going to the city this weekend (don't worry, I am completely stripping it and cleaning it). So first a few facts about the tank: 5 gallon tetra (rectangular), has a heater, and a whisper...
  10. Is this heater any good?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I'm considering changing out my tetra submersible heater for this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006JLPG8?colid=2G7LO0UH7HMVC&coliid=I175PTAYVLUUTY&psc=1&ref_=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl I don't really trust that my heater is doing it's job. Is it supposed to reset itself every single time I...

  13. Tail biting or fin rot?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    About six months ago I began noticing that my betta's tail was starting to look frayed. I did some research and came across fin rot, which looked right. I posted a picture on here and was told to up the water changes and use aquarium salt. I know that there are some strong opinions regarding...
  14. Stocking a 10 gallon

    Other Fish
    I'm new to any fish other than bettas, but I want to try a tank of cute little darting fish. I'd like to get some little sucker fish of some kind (plecos or corys?) and a few neon or silvertip tetras for it. Which would I add first? How many at a time? Water parameters? etc. I'm still doing...

  17. Sick tetra urgent

    Other Fish
    Hello! This is a very urgent message! This morning I found one of my tetras stuck in one of my silk plants. I gently shook him out and he seemed fine, just a little disoriented. But now, only 30 minutes later he is floating vertically at the top of the tank (still alive) and it looks like one of...
  18. Ideas for 15 gallon?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    First off, I've been creeping on this forum for probably over a year now and it's awesome! I've had tons of ideas and learned a lot about bettas and just aquariums in general but right now I'm completely stuck. Sorry if this is in the wrong section as I'm really asking multiple questions but the...
  19. Does anyone have this tank?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi, About a month ago, I took a trip to petco to buy some prime and ended up walking out with the most beautiful EE I've ever seen. Anyway, right now he is in a heated 3 gallon kritter keeper. The only problem is that I've had that kritter keeper for over 10 years now so Im worried it's going...
  20. Is this a good filter?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Would this filter be a good filter for a 5 gallon tank? http://www.amazon.com/Tetra-26316-Whisper-Filter-5-10-Gallon/dp/B001CHXJSK/ref=sr_1_1?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1401225555&sr=1-1&keywords=5+gallon+aquarium+filter Also, do you think one male betta and one neon tetra would go along...
