    Help!! Betta ate large amount of snello, HUGE belly

    Thank you all! Today the belly is much smaller. Still bloated but not so scary. He is acting “normal,” swimming around etc whereas last night he was hiding under his bridge at the bottom. Probably too heavy to swim up lol. Learned my lesson, feed the snails their snello separately!

    Help!! Betta ate large amount of snello, HUGE belly

    Thank you! So there is nothing I can do for him except wait it out? He won’t die just from eating that much (or specifically eating snello - baby food peas, calcium, fish flakes, gelatin)?

    Extended power outage, how to help betta stay warm enough

    Hi all, thanks so much for the helpful advice! I did try wrapping his tank in thick towels and that worked for a night but we had a cold snap along with the power outage, with the next day temps in the 50s in the house. So off he went, evacuated to a friend's house in the next town over with his...

    Extended power outage, how to help betta stay warm enough

    Added question: we do have friends the next town over who have power. Do you think it would be less stressful to bring Simon to their house in his temporary tank but with heater and filter, or try to make him as comfortable as possible without either? Thanks in advance!

    Water Changes- Betta Fish

    Cool name! Prime is a water conditioner so you don’t need to do both, I’d recommend just using Prime. It only takes a couple drops per gallon so you can add it to the tank when Kratos is in there, but for me I usually try to do everything at once when replacing water, and at that point I take...

    Sad - Both Mystery Snails Died At The Same Time.

    Thank you! I appreciate your response! I will keep the teenies for a bit longer in the snail tank til I decide what to do. It’s strange but I keep going over to that tank to “check” on the mystery snails to see how they are but...not there. Ah well. I’m sorry about your ramshorns, that must...

    Water Changes- Betta Fish

    Hi! Welcome to the wonderful world of keeping bettas - they are so fun and curious little guys. In general, tank should be cycled before you put in any fish, and contrary to typical LFS advice, adding quick start or other tank starters do not instantly cycle your tank. If your betta is already...
