    Where can I find Pea Puffers? (Stouffville, Ontario)

    Hello! I've been looking at pea puffers for quite a while.... I dont really have an lfs or any fish store that carries them near me. Where did you get yours? I've checked PetSmart, Kijiji and other websites but can't find any...I'm also worried about shipping costs, but anything under $10 is...

    Dropsy

    Thank you! I will check it out. I don't have a hospital tank ready for her. Even if I set one up, there wouldn't be a heater as it is in a different tank.

    Sorry forgot to add pictures. This was yesterday and it got a bit worse and then got a tiny bit better so she's still pineconing.

    Dropsy

    Hi! My female betta, Akila, got really bloated yesterday and is pineconing a bit. I confirmed with some people on a discord server that it is dropsy. I did a Sea Salt bath yesterday and she's still bloated a lot. The pineconing isn't too bad now, but she still is pineconing. How else should I...

    Hello!

    Great! Thanks so much! I will start doing water changes. Do you think twice a day, 30% is fine? So 60% daily, just separated to make it a bit less stressful. Will also do extra vacuuming and maintenance.

    Hello!

    I only have the tank right now. I still need to get a filter, heater and substrate. I will be using filter media to help cycle it. I will put pictures below. Sorry I can't get clearer photos. I was talking to someone about popeye and he told me that his pH was higher and it cause some eye...

    Hello!

    Thanks for your reply! I left her in for 3 hours and then removed her and put her back into her normal tank. I will try to lower the pH first!

    Hello!

    Thank you! My dad unexpectedly brought him home, so I didn't have a tank ready for him. Where I live, the only water source is spring water and I tested the pH yesterday and its around 8 or a bit higher which isn't good for my bettas. I'm pretty sure the high pH is causing popeye for my female...

    What food do you feed your bettas?

    I feed mines Fluval Betta Bug Bites. Twice a week I soak freeze-dried worms/shrimp for them too.

    Hello!

    Hi! I just joined this forum! I have a 5 gallon tank with a female betta and a temporary 1 gallon tank with a male betta. Once I get the proper supplies needed to cycle my 10 gallon, then I will move him in there. The 5 gallon is cycled and the 1 gallon is also cycled. (I used media from the 5g)...
