  1. Planted Betta Tanks
    Oh my gosh. So, guess what I picked up today? Alternanthera reineckii 'cardinalis' and some Eleocharis parvula! Did a big change including adding in the laterite and planting the plants. Kasper is just... he's absolutely star-struck but how much green is in his tank now. Little stinker is just...
  2. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Everything on here leaves me paranoid about illnesses and I would like to know what medicines to have on hand for Betta illnesses. What works with what, warnings on copper-based meds and such. I'm asking because I don't want to be caught off guard if something happens and I cannot get the...
  3. Betta Chat
    So, I've never really seen my Marble boy (although he's mostly colored up as a Royal or Turquoise Blue now) flare and show his beard. He has flared his gill-covers but I've never seen his beard. At first, I thought: 'Maybe he just needs to get a little older, maybe he isn't fully mature yet."...
  4. Planted Betta Tanks
    Okay, so, y'all have given me so much inspiration in wanting to plant a tank properly (I've just got my goofy Lee's Critter Keeper) and since I would like to add in Roobios (from Adagio Teas, organic, and it's what I have on hand) tea, I worry about doing it with a plastic/acrylic tank. So...
  5. Planted Betta Tanks
    So, I went to my LFS and bought some Duckweed! And it's from a tank with... Gouriamis in it but, all the fish looked very healthy. The water was crystal clear and well, my question is: Should I disinfect the duckweed? How would I do it? I'm leery about disinfecting it just because well, from...
  6. Betta Art
    Hello there folks. I’m in need of a bit of money to pay for college-expenses and as a full-time student with 18 credit hours, the free-time that I do have is not substantial enough to have a job on-campus or off-campus. I am offering openings for paid commissions of your Betta splendens...
  7. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Maybe I'm being paranoid but I think Kasper has a bit of bloat going on in his tummy. Housing What size is your tank? 3 gallons What temperature is your tank? 78F Does your tank have a filter? No Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration? No Is your tank heated? Yes What tank...
  8. Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So, I'm going to be upgrading soon (at the end of this week) to the Medium All Living Things Critter Tote (that's the almost 3gal one). I would like to plant it. I'm sorely tempted to make it a natural planted one but, well... I'm leery of the weight the Tote will be as I do travel back and...
  9. Meet the Betta Keepers
    Hello-hello! My name is Liz (call me Weaver please) and I have my very first Betta fish male sitting in his very-empty-unstimulating (I'll be getting him some plants and things to hide in next week) All Living Things Critter Tote. It's the small one so I'll be upgrading to the larger one too...
