    Growth on Betta

    Hey everyone, I’m not sure what this is/what to do about it. My betta has a growth that started about 2 weeks ago and has been growing, it’s white and beside his head and above his forward fins. I’ve been treating with salt but it hasn’t been doing much. Any help would be great.

    Can aquatic plants live without light?

    I wanted live plants for my new tank, but I don't have a fish tank light yet. Would adding the plants before having light hurt them? They can survive in the store without fish tank lighting. I've had to have my other planted tank light off for going on vacation as I didn't want an algae bloom...

    Why oh Why do these two tanks look so different!

    Sorry this is so poorly written but we're doing a water change later today and would like at least a couple comments: The first example is 'TANK A" the second example is 'TANK B" both taken today about 4 hours after feeding - the debris you see on the ground in both tanks is mostly empty snail...

    Growth On Fish?

    I just got this fish not to long ago, maybe 3-4 weeks. He’s been doing great with my other fish but today I noticed he has some kind of a growth on his side? I don’t know if this is an emergency or not and I don’t know what to do. What is this?
