    Betta water temp too hot or too cold?

    I would leave your current heater in for now then. While their preferred range is 76-80, they will do just fine in 74-85. 71 is out of that range but 84 is in that range. So leave the heater until you get a new one.

    Betta water temp too hot or too cold?

    Bettas should be kept at 76 to 80. While they are able to survive outside of that range, they will not be happy and they will not live as long. If your heater isn't doing the job right, to get a new one. Preferably one that you set the temperature on, not a preset one. I had the same issue when...

    Rock and a Hard Place

    My night/blue lights were on so I never changed the lights. I assume he tried to swim through the gap sometime over night and just was too big. I was looking into a new lid and lights. Any brand you recommend?

    Rock and a Hard Place

    So I woke up and found one of my Angels between a rock and my tank glass. Is it normal for them to to that during the night to sleep or am I right to have moved him? It is 4am so it would be time for him to sleep, if they sleep that is. I'm going to move the rock farther from the glass. But if I...

    Floating plants

    Can I do floating plants in an aquarium that has a bubbler and over the back filter? I like how they look but I'm worried that they won't be able to survive because of the movement of the water. Are they rather hardy? I have hornwort that is planted in the substrate but I'd rather it float. Any...

    Snail Color

    That is kind of what I'm leaning towards but I hope not. I hope he just developed that pattern naturally because it looks pretty nice.

    Snail Color

    Hi guys. My brown mystery snail, Ajay, has changed color rather drastically since I got him. He used to be just a dark brown but now he has distinct streaks of dark brown, light brown, and black. Is this normal while they mature or could it be an issue of my water? My water is on the softer...

    Bishop the Betta

    This is my girlfriend's new Betta, Bishop! He is a very pretty fish. His colors are mostly blue with some, red, white, a purple mixed in. The colors are much more vivid in person than through the screen. He is a half-moon betta, or so said the store. He is very active but he does not seem to be...

    Clean hands?

    Honestly depends. If I'm just getting something out of there real quick, such as a dead plant, I just reach in there. If I'm going to be doing work in it, like cleaning or aquascaping, I rinse with hot water but no soap before starting.
