    My Betta Died And I Need Help With Why....

    My betta died today... He's been having issues that I THOUGHT I had been controlling well but apparently not... He seemed to have mild fin rot about a month or two ago and I used that 'cure all' tablet you put in for five days without water change. I don't remember what it's called but it...

    Java Moss

    I am thinking of creating a landscape-look for my tank and was wondering if java moss can grow on/in sand? I have seen that Java moss is often used to create a 'grass' type look and it seems like it doesn't need much to thrive. I've read that a few people buried their java moss partway into the...

    Lfs Told Me Betta Would Definitely Eat White Clouds

    So I decided to see what my LFS had, for potential tank mates for my male betta in a 10 gallon. They have white clouds there and I was talking to the store owner and he told me that my betta would DEFINITELY eat them, even if the tank was heavily planted... But I'm pretty sure I have also seen...

    Dead Fish In The Tanks At The Lfs - Safe?

    Okay so this is something I have always wondered... Today I was looking at my LFS just to see what they had. I noticed that they had white clouds, and there were probably 10 throughout the bottom of the tank, dead (this was probably like a 5 gallon tank). There were another 5-7 that were dead...

    Male Betta In 10 Gallon With Dwarf Rasboras?

    Considering the tank would be heavily planted and the betta is tolerant of other fish(I am just trying to spread my options to some fish I think I would like, pygmy cory is already my 'back up' for tank mates if I don't find something I like more), could maybe 8 dwarf rasboras do well with a betta?

    Mystery Snail With Fuzz

    So, my betta has been recovering from mild fin rot. And I didn't want my snail to be harmed by the medicine, so I put him in a .75 gallon quarantine tank that does not have a filter. This is what I have been doing, and it seemed completely fine until something (probably really stupid) that I...

    Celestial Pearl Danio(Galaxy Rasbora) Questions

    Just a quick, two part question: In a 10 gallon [heavily planted] tank, will 3 female celestial pearl danios be okay (because I've seen that the males can be aggressive), and will they be harmonious with either a single male betta(assuming that the individual betta will not harass them) or with...

    Types Of Sand, Cleaning Sand, And Filters

    Okay so I just set up my ten gallon tank, which came with an internal power filter (the tank I bought was the petco 'grreat choice'). I read that it may be bad to use an internal filter if I have sand? Also, sand is incredibly expensive at pet stores, and was hoping that I could just buy play...

    Betta, Tank Mates, A 10 Gallon Tank And More

    Okay so, I have a betta currently in a 2 gallon tank. He has a mystery snail with him currently, and has shown no signs of aggression. When I show him a mirror he flares, but he doesn't attack the glass or really do much else of anything and then stops flaring once the mirror goes away(in other...

    Hey There!

    hey there! I am obviously new here. I joined because I have always been interested in fish and have finally begun to take having an aquarium seriously! I grew up with us always having a male betta fish in a 2 gallon hectagon tank with an air stone. Obviously that's not ideal, but our fish did...
