    Found baby snail in new aquarium

    Hi all, so i’ve set up a new aquarium, and i’ve found a baby snail in my tank. I’ve used live plants, but haven’t yet got any fish, so i assume the snail has come with the plants.

    Help getting wisteria to grow?

    I recently redid my betta tank & added some new live plants, one being some water wisteria. I tried this plant once in the past with a different tank (planted in substrate) but it all ended up dying from the roots up.

    Female Betta with Clamped Fins

    This past June, a friend of mine gave me two female Betta fish in a split half-gallon tank for my birthday. I have since moved them into separate 3 gallon filtered tanks from API.
