    Is my betta sick or is this just his coloring?

    So I have a baby betta. I got him on Father's day so he's still growing. I noticed a whit blob on his chest and I can't tell if it's an illness since he seems fine, very active playing in the decor, eating. Or if just the way he is going to look. I currently have a bit of a snail issue so I'm...

    Algae control for 10 gallon

    I have a 10gal betta tank with 3 amano shrimp and 1 nerite snail. I'm getting a lot of brown algae on the glass that's clouding my view, and my algae eaters aren't dealing with it. Anything I could add to help out? Also, should I add any bottom feeders? I noticed some teeny tiny detritus worms.

    Bettas and Gourami as Tankmates

    Has anyone mixed a male betta with honey gourami? If so, how did it go? How big was the tank? How many and what sexes were your gouramis? Any aggression? Curious to hear others' experiences.

    Betta eats a spider?? x'D

    Here's my beautiful betta. My son named him Goldie. 🤷‍♀️ This morning I went in to check on him and noticed he was investigating/pecking at something on the gravel. I was shocked to see it was a spider! A drowned spider and its abdomen looked crushed. I quickly took it out so my betta wouldn't...

I know there are issues with pheromones and etc but thats not why I am here now. I wanted to share my idea and see if it is plausible; So what if I divide a...

    Could he have fin rot?

    Hi, I got my betta two days ago and had him put into a tank which had been conditioned and running (filter & heater) for 3 days. The water temperature has been between 25-27 degrees celcius with the water filter running non-stop. I took a look at his tail today and saw that it had been frayed...

    Stocking question

    Hey I’ve got a heavily planted 10 gallon with a male betta and 6 harlequin rasboras as well as 3 nerite snails. So far they all get along and they all interact peacefully. However I felt like maybe the rasboras’ group of 6 is too small, and maybe i should add 3 more for a group of 9. Cyclewise...

    male betta aggressive towards females & only 1 tank

    Before you start judging me, I swear I have an explanation for why they're in the same tank in the first place. My mother was in hospital for ~6 weeks because of covid (she's fine now!), and when she came back home, one of her friends thought it would be a good idea to send us two betta fish...

    Hey everyone! I know it's been a while since I last made a post here. I've checked in once in a blue moon, but I had neither the stories to tell nor the experience to contribute, so I've been pretty quiet ever since I learned how to stop panicking and hovering over Hank lmao.
