    Need betta help quick. PH shock? (Picks included)

    Well, the goal was to cycle the tank with the Tetra Safe Start, as to which I wasn't supposed to do water changes for around two weeks? But I guess that is a fail, for now, so water changes daily until I retest my water?

    Need betta help quick. PH shock? (Picks included)

    So I've had my dear boy Bellamy in a heated vase for the past half week or so just now set up his tank and added him last night. Both the tank and his vase were filled with my well water. The tank I jumpstarted with Tetra Safe Start and added the fish very soon afterward. The problem is he just...

    Betta Finn Biting

    So of my latest Betta batch, all my betta's are doing well. I have my Mustard male in his tank already, but the other two are still in their heated bowls receiving daily water changes and the appropriate amount of stress coat (until I set up their tanks later today hopefully). As they were...

    Need Betta Help

    Thanks again for the great advice! And yes I keep my tanks on stands, I primarily have fought with the two or three powered vacuums they have available at my local Petsmart. I considered that I may not have been using it correctly but later ruled that out. :)

    Need Betta Help

    @PascalKrypt Thanks so much for the advice! It's good to know that I'm not doomed to failure here, though I figured they wouldn't be that much better off if I decided to return them, considering I have dealt with fin rot and theirs isn't that bad. As for vacuuming gravel may I ask to which...

    Need Betta Help

    @BlackSkirtTetra Their tanks haven't been cycling, as I received them yesterday as gifts. The tanks are Two 10 gallons and one five-gallon. And if it will help I'll add some MOss balls to my current order on Amazon, always thought they were cute anyway. :) @JJfishes I was considering doing that...

    Need Betta Help

    I received three Betta fish for my birthday yesterday, as I am seemingly known as "the fish girl" with my friends. I received a red veiltail male, a black mustard betta male, and last but not least a dragon scale male. I planned on keeping them all in heated bowls and executing frequent water...

    Questions On Setting Up My Saltwater Tank

    So I am setting up my first saltwater tank, BUT I am still deciding on the overall tank. I know larger tanks are easier to balance, but I have balanced smaller tanks for a while now and would prefer to stay 30g and below right now. So I have to potential tanks a long 25g, and a tall...

    Is This Finrot? (pic )

    So this is my boi Ironman. Today I looked in his tank and low and behold, like a big piece of his tail is gone. He lives in a heated, filtered 10g, uses good quality purchased water. So Fin Rot? A snag? Or what? Thanks so much in advance.

    Fin Rot Issues With Betta Fish

    Well alright I have been keeping up to date on them though, and while I was medicating they got a 25% change daily. Only issue is I can't use my The My water doesn't need dechlorinators unfortunately, I believe the overall dissolved solids is to high. Any fish I put in my water just doesn't...

    Fin Rot Issues With Betta Fish

    Well alright I have been keeping up to date on them though, and while I was medicating they got a 25% change daily. Only issue is I can't use my well water for fish so it is nearly impossible for me to do more then a 25% water change daily. As I normally buy my water by the gallon from the...

    Fin Rot Issues With Betta Fish

    So I got rid of the fin rot on one of my bettas, but I am not sure if I am even making a difference on my 2 year old male Smaug. He lives in a filtered and heated 10g. I treated him first with "API, Fin and Body Cure" then with "API, E.M.". With the "Fin and Body" it kept his condition from...
