    Male or Female Betta?

    A few months ago my girlfriend and I purchased a female Betta for our fish tank. Over the last couple of days she/he has been making what looks like a bubble nest? I have attached some pictures, can anyone confirm the gender of our Betta fish please?

    UPDATE: My Betta Died... What Exactly do I do now?

    My Betta, Bo, has unfortunately died. I'm gonna be honest, I'm a little crushed. I got him when I struggled with both emotional and physical problems, and it was nice to see him around even though he slept a lot--but otherwise, he swam around and explored my tank when he was awake. If it...

    So if you didn't know already... my betta's fins ended up being ripped because of other fish my dad bought. We returned them and he seems to be doing fine. However, I noticed after a few weeks what appears to be fin rot? What exactly should I do about it? Parameters are as follows: 10 gallon...

    Breeding in a fry-only tank

    i am thinking of cutting bottoms off a plastic breeder. Place it in the 10 gallon fry-only tank. Breed in the breeder and let the fry fall into the tank. I’ve searched for discussion of this practice. Why is this not a reasonable approach?

    In the summer months the ambient temperature around my tank fluctuates a lot, the tank temperature goes from 75-77 degrees quite a bit. I’m wondering if this is okay for my fish? If not is there any way I can keep the temperature more steady?

    Fluval Edge 23L

    Hello, I love the look of the Fluval Edge, but I understand it can be a pain to maintain due to accessing the inside of it. Do any of you have a Fluval Edge for your shrimp and how do you get on with it? Obviously I would add a pre-filter sponge to protect the babies.
