    I Think I Stressed Out My Betta. He Has Been Hiding In A Cave For 6+ H

    Hi, this is my first post on this forum in about eight years. My profile picture is a drawing of my old Severum which died of ich three years ago...     I had a Betta in a 5g tank. I had him for about two months - I had another betta who died at four years old. Anyway, the HOOD of the tank...

    Watched A Show On Fishkeeping...

    I tried to find this show on youtube but couldn't get it. It was something called Marc Morrone: Fish part 1 and it was on demand... The opening, they show some saltwater tanks... okay, that is fine. This show goes downhill. First they show two MASSIVELY overstocked tanks, one with Guppies and...

    Severum Minimum Tank Size...

    I have a Severum in a 55gal tank. Besides the Pleco, all other fish are low waste loads. If need be, I could probably buy a 100gal filter. Not at the moment, but in the future. After doing a lot of searching, sites can either say 55 or 75 is the minimum tank size. Some sites even say 100. My...

    Do You Let People Inexperienced With Fish Near Your Tanks?

    I only do with supervision. I haven't had any HORRENDOUS experiences, but a few things scared me a bit. My aunt and cousin came over, they started banging the glass of my tanks with their fists. :crazy: Luckily they stopped when I told them to... Even my mom is a bit scary around the fish! Me...

    Are Any Fish Illegal Where You Live?

    There are only two fish I know are illegal in New York, though there may possibly be more. Snakeheads and Red Bellied Piranhas. Apparently, these are both invasive predatory species that may cause problems in the local waters. :/ However, having gone right over the border, to a fish store in...

    Is This... Sanitary?

    I was in Wal-Mart a few days ago and looked at their fish section.... I noticed there was (this is pretty gross) halves of Guppies and small goldfish at the top of the Oscar and African Cichlid tanks. From what I can see, since these fish were too small to eat the entire goldfish/guppy (the...

    Quickest You Have Ever Cycled A Tank, And How?

    My parents wouldn't let me do the ammonia drip-fishless cycling method on my 55, (they said it would mess up the water...) so I decided to 'clone' my 20 on my 55. I got 3 Zebra Danios. I used a LOT of mature media from my 20 in the 55, about a pound of gravel, multiple decorations. It basically...

    Female Sorority May Present Problems...

    I had a female Betta sorority of 3 in my 20gal. All seemed okay for the first night. The next day, one Betta (a white one) was out where the other 2 (red and blue) were nowhere to be found. One was in a bush, hiding, the other hiding in a log ornament. I got the blue one to come out of the bush...

    What Country Are Fishkeepers From?

    I posted the countries I have seen most people from. :) I am from the United States, in a town called Cold Spring 1 1/2 hours from NYC. I put the UK as the first choice as most people I see on here are from there. Where are you from? You can be more specific than your country if you want. (I...

    Considering Purchasing Hospital Tank.... Need Advice.

    Okay, I had 2 fish die recently. They were 2 German Blue Rams purchased from the same store. They looked sickly and underfed when I purchased them but I thought I could nurse them back to health. One had completely deformed fins. One died after a week and one died in under a day. I think they...

    Was I Ripped Off?

    I had bought a single GBR a week or so ago. It was the only one in the tank, so I bought a single specimen. It was $8 or $9. I tried to find a companion, and today I finally found another store with them. It was in a tank but the price wasn't marked. I expected $8-$10. So they ring up the...

    Best And Worst Lfs...

    I'll share. Worst - Pet Supplies Plus, Fishkill, NY - This is horrendous. :( Dead fish everywhere. Dyed fish everywhere! About half the time I go to this store (for pet supplies, not fish) they have signs up saying "Fish not for sale, illness" or something similar. The only thing I ever bought...

    Have You Ever 'rescued' A Fish?

    I mean, a sick fish, deformed fish, a fish that was in general unattractive that was destined to spend the remainder of its life at the store? I bought a female Betta 2 weeks ago. Most people buy Bettas for their wonderful colors. This Betta was an unusual Beige color, almost albino like but I...

    Fish Suffering At School!

    I don't know what sectionb to put this in... In my school, I went to one of my classes and wanted to puke. There were two goldfish that my teacher purchased as the class pets. They weren't in a tank... or a bowl (unsuitable...) even. They were in a 'turtle island' with only an inch of water...

    Every Pet You Have Ever Owned...

    This is every pet I've had in my life time. I had to ask my parents about the canary because I was so young I didn't remember it. Anyway, here I go - 1 Canary, Vedo (RIP) 2 Dogs, Tony (RIP) and Timmy 1 Cat, Amy 2 African Land Snails (RIP) 1 Apple Snail 57 Fish (I think) various species, RIP to...

    How Big Of A Tank...

    I am not planning o doing this, but I was wondering. It is pretty much a rule that you should never house 2 male Bettas together. However, if you had a big enough tank, would that lessen the aggression? I was wondering. Would a 55gal/4 foot tank suffice, or would you need bigger? Has anyone...

    Were My Cories Spawning?

    I had two Cories (I have 5) in a 20gal high tank. Today, twice, the same two swam up to the middle of the tank together, swam into each other's faces, one went under the other, then they went to the bottom of the tank together. Then, an hour or so later, these same two went up and did the same...

    Pet Store Giving Improper Tank Sizes On Labels?

    This was something I was wondering about. The store Petsmart has all of their fish labeled. That may sound like a good thing, but while reading the sizes required for the fish, they were so off! This is a professional store here, I was wondering why they would trick customers. Here are examples...

    Sometime In The Future, May Get Saltwater Tank?

    This would be way in the future as I just purchased a new freshwater tank 2 or 3 weeks ago. But I love saltwater fish... so I will ask few questions. I saw a 29g tank, a Biocube, for $230. Would this be a good tank to start with? I don't really have room for anything bigger, I have 2 other...

    Missing Cory! :(

    I had 6 Albino Cories 2 days ago. Yesterday I fed them, and I could only find 5. I searched the whole tank, checked the filter, looked around the tank, gone. What could have happened? I checked again just now and it has vanished. :( All peacful tankmates - a small Pleco (will be moved) and 5...
