    Water pump making too much turbulence

    I've had a Whisper(?) internal water pump for a few months now and I feel bad every time my fish, especially the bettas, try to swim across the tank and then get shoved to the bottom because of the force the water is coming out from the pump.

    Wounded face on bloodfin tetra

    Hey, all! While doing a water change this morning, I noticed that my last little bloodfin tetra didn't look right. Upon closer inspection, it almost looks like he's missing part of his face.

Will she eventually come out of this "heat cycle"? I've mainly dealt with mammals and some avians up...

    Suddenly obsessed with this little female betta

    I've been wanting a red male betta for the past few months and finally set myself to the task of preparing for one. Lots of reading and a 20 gallon tank later and I found myself searching through three different pet stores, but none of the betta were calling out to me. I ended up going home with...
