  1. Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I've read a lot of suggestions, experiences about the best water to use in my Newfish's tank (6 gal with artificial plants, bubbler, filter and heater). My guy thrives on spring water (Public, Win Dixie, and Wal-Mart), without the bother of dechlorination. These jugs cost money. My SO does not...

    I just moved into my college dorm and set up my 5 gallon tank, I tested the water and it showed about 10 ppm nitrate after running for about 12 hours, with no ammonia and no nitrite, even with a seeded filter that seemed wrong. I just tested the tap water and it has 5-10 ppm nitrate, should I be...

    Seem to be having issues with the water quality in my 2gal tank. I have an Aquatop IF-201 sponge filter and seems to be working fine I see it sucking up stuff and it seems to be running great, so I don't think it's that? Since I have installed it, there is a huge amount of what looks like...
  9. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My male betta started staying close to the top of the water with his mouth very close to the surface, getting air every once in a while, and sometimes blowing bubbles. I thought he was making a bubble nest but he doesn't seem to be very energetic and isn't focusing on a nest. I just did a 50%...

    I don't know what is going on, I have a community, and last week one of my Bettas died, and today I just witnessed one of my guppies died. I don't know what is going on, I need to figure this out before I lose more. I had two female bettas, they were seperated in the tank, Betta that died...

    Apparently I am not that good at math... I have a 2gl tank. The instructions for Seachem Prime state that 1cap = 50gal and 1 cap ring = 1ml. So do I just put in a drop some how? Is that how much is needed for each gallon?

    Hi guys! Yesterday I bought my betta a 27 Litre tank (7.1g). I am planning to switch him over today. My question is would I be able to take him out of his old tank and leave him in a jar while I put his old water + new in his new tank, set that up and let that heat up? Would the water in his...

    Before anyone chews my head off, please hear me out. I'm home from university for Christmas break and brought my fish home with me to take care of. I thought I had packed everything, but now I realize I forgot the water conditioner. And of course, me being me, I didn't realize I had forgotten it...
  14. Betta Fish Care
    I was wondering if Poland springs water is something that is safe for a beta fish. And if so, would it have to be treated with conditioner? I currently have a beta fish in treated tap water, but am going home for winter break and got him a vacation home (new filtered, heated tank to bring him...
  15. 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.
  16. Betta Fish Care
    I currently have a male betta in a 1.5 gallon tank that stays roughly between 75-80 degrees with no filter or air stone. I use Zoo Med Betta H2O Conditioner and feed him two Aqueon Betta Food pellets daily, making sure he eats them instead of letting them fall to the bottom. These conditions...

    :cry: So I just moved into college and the only thing we are allowed to have in the dorm is a fish. My roommate and I got a betta (named Rodger) and we absolutely love him! The only problem is that the water goes from adequately warm to freezing in about three hours-- we are assuming that it is...

    So the past few days, I noticed that my fish's bowl had a strange layer on top of the water. The bowl is unfiltered, and I was wondering if that might be why. When I do a water change, I take a small container I have, fill it with tap water, and add these conditioning drops that remove the...

    Hello everyone, I used a test strip to test all levels of nitrate, etc., and I found the PH level to be a little high. Is there a way to lower this? Also, what causes this to happen? I changed his water about 3 days ago... What frequency should I change his water? And how much at a time...
