  1. Should I transport my betta fish?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Today, I noticed that my betta Azul has ich. I immediately drove to PetSmart to pick up some meds, but they were closed. So I had to go to Walmart, and all they had was Jungle Ich Guard I. I looked it up and several said it'd be fine to use with bettas. The thing is, I'm currently at college...
  2. Driving a fish past the border?

    Betta Chat
    I'm in Canada and going on a trip to Buffalo. Plan to get lights and other fish stuff. Of course I'm bound to see bettas. I know it's illegal to take a fish past the border correct? But, is there a way to take a Betta back to Canada? It's just a pet, I won't be doing anything fishy with it ;-)...

    Hi. I am a college student and I have had a male betta for about a year and a half know. He is a very healthy and lively fish. My home is about 6 1/2 hours away from my school and he has made the trip to and from multiple times. I just came home with him for Thanksgiving break. The car...
  4. Moving!!

    Betta Fish Care
    Hey so I'm going home for a couple weeks this Thanksgiving. I'm gonna have to bring my beta with me since I have no one to take care of him while I'm gone. I was wondering what was the safest and best way to do this. He lives in a small 1/2 gallon bowl and I have an 11 hour drive I still have...
  5. A couple questions about transport

    Betta Fish Care
    I recently started college, and when I found out we were allowed to keep fish in our dorms, I decided it'd be a nice hobby for me. I did originally make the all too common mistake of doing very little research on betta care and had my betta, Pancakes, in a bowl. However when I did more research...

    Betta Fish Care
    In about two weeks I'll be moving back to my dorm room to start school. Hamster and Gecko are set for the move with Bingo's box and Mouse can just stay in his cage, but I'm not sure the safest way to tansport my betta, pleco, and snail. It will be about a five hour trip, driving alone, and...

  8. Can I transport my Betta from San Diego to Chicago in car?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi there, I have had my betta in a 1 gal bowl for a few months now (my previous betta that occupied the bowl lived in there for about 3 I assume it's okay for now) and am moving. I will first be going to norcal (~8 hour drive) and then to Chicago (~3-4 day drive). Is there a way to...
  9. Fry food and other post spawning questions

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Ok so my first question is regarding fry food. I never have raised a infusoria culture on my own (usually my friend does it for me). I've heard many things you can use like lettuce and dog food to start them. I want to know how do you tell if a culture is bad, how do you know its good and ready...
