  1. Planning For New Betta. Three Days Of Fasting Okay? Or Auto Feeder?

    Hello! I am planning on getting another betta. I will only be able to feed it Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and every other Saturday.

  2. What Is On My Betta/cycle Failure!

    Awesome! Thanks for the information. I will continue testing the water and doing the water changes. There is fuzz on him and he is missing a ventral fin though, as stated above. Are you sure I shouldn't pick up a medication as well? Thank you!
  3. What Is On My Betta/cycle Failure!

    Pictures attached. Is this a fungas? Please let me know what to do and what I should buy. This guy is in a divided 10 gallon tank with another betta on the other side of the divider and 2 nerite snails. This tank was only started about 3 weeks ago using a filter from a friend's established tank...
  4. How Much Should You Feed A Betta?

    Hello! I had read that an adult betta should get 3 pellets a day when being fed the omega one pellets. I rotate each day from frozen brine shrimp (5-8 shrimp per betta) and then the next day 3 pellets per betta. Is this enough food? I saw some people recommending 6+ pellets per betta each day on...
  5. New Koi Betta

    Very pretty girl! I love koi bettas. I work at Petco and I'm pretty sure we don't know the approximate age of the bettas that come in. I did hear that in general, bettas are shipped to chain pet stores at anywhere from several months to almost a year old depending on how long that tail type...
  6. Aqueon Pro 50w Heater Not Working Well

    Thank you all for your responses! Our room temp is 72F and that's what the tank is stuck at. I set the heater to 79F, so the heater only needs to raise the water temp 7 degrees, so I thought 50w would be sufficient. Should I get a 75w instead? I've repeatedly felt the water around the heater as...
  7. Aqueon Pro 50w Heater Not Working Well

    Hey guys! My family got a new betta and we instantly cycled the tank using seachem stability as well as a sponge filter from an established tank. We found a perfect guy yesterday so we brought him home. I set up the heater last night, I set it to 79F, and put the betta in the tank because I...
  8. Is Our Betta For Sure A Male?

    Thank you for the help! I don't have any mirror I could use for flaring and my phone has terrible quality photos without flash. I assume I cannot use flash when photographing the fish, right? Here are some more photos.
  9. Is Our Betta For Sure A Male?

    Hello guys! Our family got our first betta for our divided ten gallon tank. It said on his cup that he is a boy. Is he for sure a boy? We want to make sure we know the sex of this fish for sure before we getting the betta for other other side (we dont want to end up with a female on one side and...
  10. Which Sponge Filters And Air Pump For 10 Gallon Divided Betta Tank?

    That does sound like a cool idea! I may stick with my original idea though, I'm not sure. Thank you for the information! I only want to use one heater. How does this mattenfilter do with only one heater? Will the heat be able to move to both sides of the tank? The mattenfilter looks quite thick.
  11. Which Sponge Filters And Air Pump For 10 Gallon Divided Betta Tank?

    Hello! I am planning a 10 gallon divided betta tank with two bettas. I want to have a filter on each side, but I plan use only one air pump. Should I use the Whisper 10 or Whiper 20 air pump? Which of these sponge filters should I get for each side of the tank? Small Sponge Filters Ideal for...
  12. Best Heaters For 10 Gallon Divided Betta Tank?

    Thank you all for your help! I've heard that a heater is necessary on both sides of the divider, even with holes. Is this wrong? Having just one heater would be much easier. That's awesome! What heater do you use? Does it work well? And 2 filters on each side? So 4 filters? I should be able to...

  14. Can I Get Another Betta?

    My Betta fish just died after 10 days of treatment for his columnaris/hole forming in his body. I was very attached to him and I want to get another fish. Is there anything I have to do to his tank? Will the other fish catch what he had? I want to go get another Betta tomorrow. I've found that...
  15. Is My Betta Dying?

    I forget now, only a couple. I figured that I should stop because he was looking better. I realise now that was a bad idea So today was day 10 of treatment. Should do more days? I now have been giving it to him correctly. Poor little guy looks worse. The actual fuzziness has cleared up but the...
