    Help Burns Near My Betta’s Gills?

    That can’t be possible it’s been running for 5 months and everything in it came from her old tank. The filter the ornament the gravel the water the Amazon sword. There should be plenty of bb in there.

    Help Burns Near My Betta’s Gills?

    Alright so I just finished testing the water and the ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates all test 0 and I used the master test kit.

    Help Burns Near My Betta’s Gills?

    Yes it was cycled when I put her in there. It’s a 5.5 gal with a small sponge filter. I’ll have to test the water when I get home from work, but I did do a 75% water change on Wednesday, and the tank has been running since April 21 of this year. My tap water does have ammonia in it, but I always...

    Help Burns Near My Betta’s Gills?

    I noticed pinkish red patches near my female Betta’s gills and I don’t know what the cause is or the best way to treat it. A coworker said to put her in a quarantine bowl and use Betta fix and only spring water. Is this a good idea?

    Question Are These Pellets To Big For Small Fish?

    I already chopped them up in the blender so I doubt I can return them now, but I will look online for the smaller pellets, since PetCo only seems to carry the one size.

    Question Are These Pellets To Big For Small Fish?

    Could I put the entire container in the blender and then put the smaller bits back in the container? That way I’m not constantly cutting them up.

    Question Are These Pellets To Big For Small Fish?

    I was lucky enough to find new life spectrum thera+a at Petco about a week ago, and I can’t tell if they’re to big for my fish to eat. It seems like the fish in my 20 long do eat some of them when they swarm to the top, but it’s a little hard to tell. Meanwhile the tetras in my other tank...

    Question Is This A Harlequin Rasbora?

    They all school together but only at night I noticed after the lights go out. When the lights are on they kinda do their own thing.

    Question How To Sterilize Hob Filter After Quarantine?

    I also can’t do that since I live in an apartment. If I leave it out someone will throw it away

    Question How To Sterilize Hob Filter After Quarantine?

    Won’t the dish soap be harmful to the fish? And as far as I can tell they aren’t sick but I did treat the tank with API general cure, API E.M. Erythromycin, and Ich-X. Just to make sure if they are carrying anything it dies, or at least should be dead.

    Question How To Sterilize Hob Filter After Quarantine?

    I’m using my Aquaclear 20, that’s usually on my 20 long, on my 10 gal QT tank. I’m quarantining the last of the fish I’m going to put in my 20, and I want to move the filter back when it’s done. What is the best way to sterilize the filter, media, and pre-filter sponge? Or do I just need to get...

    Question Is This A Harlequin Rasbora?

    They all seem pretty happy and relaxed to me. I guess I’ll just watch and see

    Question Is This A Harlequin Rasbora?

    The one in the back seems to be the only Harlequin I have. The other two in my main tank, and the three in my quarantine tank all look like lamb chops. Should I find a new home for the odd one out? Or will he be okay schooling with the others?

    Question Did I Miss Anything In This Betta Display.

    It’s a 3.5 gallon, and sadly that is the only tank kit I can fit on there that is under $20. Though there are some 5.5 gal kits right next to it on a shelf. As for the fake plants, those are the best silk plants we have, though they do have some hard plastic stems near the base. It’s better then...
