    Hospital tank size?

    So my betta, Ender, has some bad finrot and his hospital tank is 5 gallons with a filter and heater. And now that I see other people who are treating terrible illnesses, they point out that having a smaller hospital tank helps more with recovering. I've also been doing 50% to 80% water changes...

    Population Control Achieved!

    My brackish water tank has finally reached equilibrium! My 20 gallon brackish tank houses my female guppies, with only 1 (the original) producing fry. She usually drops 50+ every 29 days or so. The daughters from previous batches are finally big enough to eat their younger siblings. Primal...

    Stocking a 29 Gallon

    Tell me what you guys think of my stock list? At the moment I have 10 pygmy corydoras and 2 rescued cardinal tetra. I plan on bringing the cardinals up to 12 or so and they cories up to 15 (more of both if you guys think it could work). When the tank is mature enough, I will be moving my 5 oto...

    Favorite Betta Tail Type

    So, I was wondering what kind of betta to get for my tank and was leaning towards a rosetail, or perhaps an elephant ear. I have a halfmoon, a dragonscale plakat, a crowntail, and I have 2 females. I had a halfmoon king in the past. What are the tail types you all prefer?

    Determined Jumper

    So I had a betta jump out of his tank today. His name was Spangle and he was a Half-moon King. I found him when I got home from work. It looked like the tank lid had been shoved over a bit, probably by my dog bumping into the tank stand. I had a kind of DIY lid on it, just a piece of plexiglass...

    Betta Ich? Please let me know.

    I just bought a betta yesterday and I didn't notice until I had added him to my 29 gallon tank. I was watching him intently to see how he would do with my community fish and he was doing really well but then I saw this spot on him. I took him out right away, and now he's in a 5 gallon tank so I...

    Signs my fish has worms?

    Hi there, In one of my tanks, I noticed that my bristlenose pleco has something that looks like callamanus worms. I double checked with PetSmart and they said it looked normal. My water levels are fine and I have not introduced any new fish or plants to my aquarium for over a month now. My...

    White spot on the head of betta

    Hi all, Recently I've noticed a white indent has formed on the top of my Betta that wasn't there previously. At first I thought it was ick, but this seems like a scratch or wound of some sort. The Betta has been acting completely normal however and nothing seems to be wrong with the other fish...
