    So I don't even know if you are still active, but I'm coming back to fish! I ended up stopping because I got crushed after the loss of my girls, but I restarted my 20 gal fish tank

    That is the temp of the tank... air temp is about 74-76.
    He's still pretty small so the heater makes the immune system stable so the body can focus on growing. Any cures in mind for mild pop eye??

    Sorry for such a delay...been running with the grandkids...Both Bettas are doing great. my 20 G has the crown tail 4 neon tetras and a mystery snail. The fifth tetra I found dead last week. Have no idea what happened. My 10 G my betta has been acting weird after he eats. almost looks like swim bladder. So I've changed the tropical food to pellits every 2 days. my 5 G I have 1 platy and 1 mystery snail. The snail is acting strange i'm thinking the platy is picking on him. How are you doing?

    I have already read the OldFishLady Water Change Sticky, but thank you. :)

    I'm not sure if I'll cycle the 10 gallons or just do water changes, but I really just want to get them in there. It's possible that I will begin by just doing water changes, but cycle the filters in another tank and then move the media into theirs.

    CONT. I came home from a rather long trip to find that Merlin (the most recently deceased) had severe dropsy, and it was so far gone that I had to euthanize him.

    I do agree that I need to change something in my fish's care though, and I'm currently working on it. You see, I am a a very busy person, and most of my fish's tanks are quite small. Their water needs to be changed multiple times per week to keep the ammonia down, and sometimes I miss a water change because I am away. I am gathering the supplies for two divided 10 gallons, where I will move my fish. I will therefore only have to change the water once weekly, and I'll definitely be home enough to do that.
    Thanks for your concern. :)

    Thanks.

    That's okay, no offense taken. :) I agree that a lot of my bettas die, and more often than they should. :/

    The longest I've kept a betta so far is about a year. The first betta of mine that died was a petco rescue that had an internal bacterial infection from the start, but I didn't know until it was too late. The second was a 'baby betta', who died of dropsy. I think that it he got it because of cross-contamination though, because my brother's gourami died of the same thing shortly before, and I'd been doing tank maintenance on both his and my tanks, no hand-washing in between. :/ CONT.
