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

    Thank you everyone... I tried to do what I could to keep his tank at a steady 78 degrees but his tank was not large enough for the heater that I have. I am in the process of setting up a 10 gallon, that was going to be for him that has a filter and a heater but it's no where near ready for fish...

    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

    No there minnows, a good example of micro fish are alot of rasboras and some north american killifish, white clouds can be compared with danios in this case.   Ohhh okay. I knew that they were technically minnows although they are sometimes called tetras. But I still have a LOT to learn about...

    Lfs Told Me Betta Would Definitely Eat White Clouds

    Really???! Aren't they basically micro fish, though?! Okay, apparently I have some total misconceptions about white clouds. I've read that they're hardy, stay very small, like the same temps as bettas, etc.

    Lfs Told Me Betta Would Definitely Eat White Clouds

    I just had read some comments on another post I made about my LFS and honestly, feel free to ignore this post because I no longer trust my LFS... He's full of it. And (if you read my other post) that was not the first problem I had with this guy. But, if anyone has personal experiences with...

    Dead Fish In The Tanks At The Lfs - Safe?

    To someone who had said that usually the tanks are connected at LFS... The tanks here ARE connected by those little walls with holes in them. There were actually two larger fish (I don't know what they were but they appeared to be peaceful schooling fish) in the tank with the white clouds and...

    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?

    Okay! I was told on another thread that CPD would be a bad choice... But anyways, I am going to look into chilli rasboras as I do not know much about them. Oh, also I should probably point out that I am just not interested in getting Gourami's anyways at this point despite that they are...

    Male Betta In 10 Gallon With Dwarf Rasboras?

    Okay thanks! :) I definitely have not made a final decision, and I am learning more and more about what can actually go into a 10 gal with a betta... And at the rate I have been asking questions since I joined I'll be asking 50 million more (whatever I can think of, apparently) before I decide...

    Mystery Snail With Fuzz

    Well, I changed his water and obviously did not add the bacteria starter to it. I think that was where I went wrong, since everything was fine before that.

    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?

    Betta, Tank Mates, A 10 Gallon Tank And More

    hmm... Okay. I am just afraid of bringing home any that have diseases.

    Types Of Sand, Cleaning Sand, And Filters

    That's a great suggestion! Thank you! :) Even if it will be okay I will probably just keep the filter off until it settles completely.

    Mystery Snail With Fuzz

    I just gently wiped him off with a towel and all the fuzz seems to be gone! :) Let's hope it stays that way!!

    Mystery Snail With Fuzz

    Okay! I will definitely cut down on feeding, and continue to do daily water changes and just add water conditioner until I add him into the other tank! He probably will be out for a few more days while I continue do gradual water changes, because I DID at aquarium salt to the tank(along with the...

    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

    Oh geez, I feel like a dummy. I definitely read your other message wrong and read it as "my betta was quite tolerant of the raboras" whoops! Oh well! :) I might just have to save the galaxy rasboras for my next tank.

    Hey There!

    I am DEFINITELY planning on adding live plants to my new tank! And someone had already recommended a whole list to me (and I think they included Anubias!) and I was planning on trying to make a jungly-like mish-mash of different plants! And actually, I think that maybe you're right and I should...
