    Hi there everyone! I was just wondering if keeping 1 betta fish, 7 neon tetras and 1 dwarf bristle nose pleco is ok in a 5 gallon tank, because I was suddenly gifted some fish from some friends after I started setting up a 5 gallon tank that was only meant for my betta but now I have these other...

    Hello all. This little fellow just arrived early this afternoon after 5 days in the mail. He is in a 6 gallon tank, with normal parameters (it hasn't quite been two weeks of running it yet so not fully cycled yet, but no ammonia or nitrite). Water was prepped with Prime, Stability and a bit of...

    Hello. We are hoping to get some insight into our tank and also save the rest of our fish. we got our tank in January and had it fully cycled then we upgraded to a bigger tank at the beginning of the month and we used our cycled filter for the new tank. We waited 2 days and moved the fish. We...

    Next weekend I'll be picking up my new male halfmoon dumbo ear betta, which is a tail type I've never owned before. Do they require any special care? I have a 1.5 gallon betta tank, should I get something bigger? I should I get a mini heater and/or filter? Should I cycle the tank, if so, what...
  10. Betta Fish
    I have some conserns about my betta fish. It looks like his back fin is folded or rolled up? I don't know exactly how to explain it but he also doesn't flare his fins at all and almost looks like he struggles to keep his back body floating and it sinks. Then he just goes to the bottom to lay down.

    I have a 5 gal. tank with a male betta and 4 neon tetras. When feeding I give the betta his food first, 2-3 pellets, before putting in the tetra flakes. He finishes his pellets and ends up eating some of the tetra food that floats around that the tetras haven't yet gotten to. This means he keeps...

    Hi everyone! I am fairly new to both this forum and to tropical fish keeping in general. There’s a lot of information to learn! I’m about to graduate college, and I’ve had a female betta in a 3 gallon tank in my dorm. I now know that that is too small so I bought her a 10 gallon for my new...

    I recently lost my betta to what I believe was fin rot and now my new betta (twin tail half moon betta) who I got maybe two weeks ago is showing signs. It began with small wholes in his fins maybe two of three days ago and now they are beginning to split. I have put him in an isolated travel...

    Hi, I’ve had a betta fish for over almost two years now. He’s a male half moon and he lives with an aquatic mystery snail. He used to live in a 3.5 gallon tank but I moved him to a 6 gallon tank a few months ago. A couple weeks ago I noticed some white stuff on his back and I was very concerned...

    Hi! Uh, I don't really have much to say but the automatic message said I should introduce myself, so here I am I guess. I just recently got into the fish keeping hobby with a pretty basic little 10 gal, 1 betta (named Augi) and 4 sterbai cory cats. I kinda got into it when my mom got a betta--...

    So earlier an accident happened - my betta got sucked into the siphon I was cleaning his tank with and his head is now stuck in the small tube section but unaccessible. Me and my boyfriend have cut the tube apart and tried pulling him out and it hasn't worked. I have a feeling the reason he...
