    Help How Much Food For Goldfish?

    So I have a pair of regular, good old fashioned common goldfish in a big old tank in my house. They're both big babies, I got them from a fair when i was younger and dumber. They're about five years old each and about a hand length long (so about 5-6 inches?) I've been improving their lives...

    Help Sick Swordtail?

    Does anyone know what’s wrong with my swordtail? I’ve been really busy the past couple of days and out of house (entrusting my fish feedings to my lovely mother) and I recently finished setting up my 55 gallon, which has four sword tails, three adult guppies and about five-seven baby guppies...

    2.5g Filter?

    Anyone know a good 2.5 filter that won’t upset my betta? He’s kind of old and his old tank got damaged so I’m moving him into a 2.5 gallon. I haven’t had any good experiences with filters and 2.5 gallons, anyone have anything that won’t be too strong and won’t take up too much room in his tank?

    Everybody Please Share How Many $usd You Spent On Each Of The Fish That You Bought

    Had a fishstore overcharge me for a female betta, $23!! But her soroity mates were 3.48, 2.50, and .98. My male bettas ranged from $5 to $15, and I have a neon and guppy tank that was about $12 for a school of neons and three male gups.

    Betta Sorority Help

    Thanks to all the help y'all. It was more of a "I can't leave them here they'll die" kinda thing because the store was staying that the females weren't selling and they were just gonna flush some of them down the toilet (I WAS SO ANGRY SERIOUSLY) but yeah it's a heavily planted tank, lots of...

    Shrimp Tankmate With Betta?

    So, for a while, I've been having an issue with food residue build up/algae build up in my 20 tall. I want to add shrimp to it, snails are out of the question because the lid has a huge gap in the back for the filter, but I have a betta in there? Its current tank mates are a school of neon...

    Betta Shallow Breathing Bottom Of Tank

    Update: He's barely moving. Only moved to get to the top, rapidly and jerkily, laid down at the bottom and only moved when I dropped a pellet on the leaf. He spent a solid two minutes trying to find the pellet. Still barely breathing, occasionally breathing heavily. Something's really wrong but...

    Betta Shallow Breathing Bottom Of Tank

    Update: I did a 60% change. I don't have any methylene blue but I did move the filter up to allow for more oxygenation. He went to the top to get air after I did the change so I don't believe I need to lower the water level. He moved for a bit but then stopped... His swimming is still jerky...

    Betta Shallow Breathing Bottom Of Tank

    The most I've noticed is lethargy and an awkward, jerky swimming pattern. He's a little bronze (halfmoon?) dumbo and I've never seen him do it before. His tail is a little shredded (just a bit) from the old filter, since he would always go around the tank and get his tail stuck in it. But...

    Betta Shallow Breathing Bottom Of Tank

    I do, and I'll test in a minute. I usually change the water weekly, about 20-30%. The tank is at a constant 79-80F temperature and is filtered. There is some java ferns and a few may be decomposing? I'm not sure if they are, it's a thick brush.

    Betta Shallow Breathing Bottom Of Tank

    He's been doing this for a few days now but usually he'll move to eat or go under his rock for nighttime- but I just did a 30% change in hopes of fixing whatever issue it may be. When I put him in the tank he heabutted the top of the water and quite literally sunk to the bottom, he still hasn't...

    Betta Clamped Fins Treatment?

    So I recently got a brand new betta named Storm. He's currently in a cycled, heated 10 gallon tank, but if anyone's read my previous flurry of new threads questioning about traveling or otherwise, you'll know he traveled from a cup to a mason jar then six hours in a car in said jar yesterday...
