    10 Gallon Tank Urgent: Betta acting odd and torn fins

    Yea Such delicate but beautiful creatures. The hard part of fishkeeping but the little spitfire spirit they have make it so worth it. I believe with short lived beings like bettas quality is more important than quantity. All we can do is our best and it’s obvious that you have.

    I am so sorry I hope that he can pull through even tho it feels beyond hope. You have tried a lot and I’m sure he feels cared for.

    I agree with above poster on not worrying on sand getting moldy. I am a masonry apprentice and we frequently have large culverts of sand and buckets that we have to wet down periodically to keep workable. Never seen mold on it. Also if it’s going to be a couple months let the sand dry out for...

    Finishing fin rot treatment??

    Background info up top questions numbered out on the bottom: On may 1st I noticed my betta Cloud had some behavioral changes which prompted me to take a closer look. Upon closer inspection I made a novice diagnosis of fin rot based on fin degradation and blackened parts of the fin. I decided to...

    10 Gallon Tank Urgent: Betta acting odd and torn fins

    Swim bladder often happens as a result of bloat. Long term bloat can cause dropsy which I’m sure you’re aware of and I don’t think that’s it but if you start seeing him pine cone then I’d be worried about that. But with constipation/bloat the stomach over expands and fish lose control over the...

    10 Gallon Tank Urgent: Betta acting odd and torn fins

    Improvements definitely good I’m glad to hear it. I know my guy will just float around the surface when sleeping usually he rests on something but I’ve seen him just float around. If he’s still having swimming/buoyancy issues it could be swim bladder disease. Which a fast day or two a long with...

    Mystery snails breeding pair?

    Thank you I appreciate it as well as the three week timeline you gave me so I know approximately when to expect them. Also based on what Mattgirl posted once a female snail has mated they will lay several clutches even if they are no longer mating?

    Mystery snails breeding pair?

    I had at first had only one mystery snail who was an Incan gold. Unfortunately I had to euthanize him after he attained pretty severe shell damage from a fall. He was so much fun however, that I decided to buy two more mystery snails thinking two would be double the fun. Now I am worried I may...

    10 Gallon Tank Urgent: Betta acting odd and torn fins

    Just wanted to check in and see if your guy is doing better. Also surviving isn’t the same as thriving. A quote I’ve seen on several websites while trying to find out how much to feed. A fish can prob survive being fed every 3rd day once a day but it probably won’t thrive. Also this is going to...

    10 Gallon Tank Urgent: Betta acting odd and torn fins

    Ahhh that makes sense. Different fish are going to have different nutritional needs. I am a total noob when it comes to fish. My betta Cloud is the first fish I’ve had besides a betta when I was very young that my mom took care of lol. Thanks for making that more clear for me as I am looking...
