    Snail with my betta?

    My snails love veggies. Nerites are pickier, but I still reccomend trying to feed them.

    Snail with my betta?

    Yes, they do eat mostly algae, but at some point that algae runs out so it's good to feed them once in a while.

    I don't know the disease, but for mystery diseases there's general cures. If you have one on hand, it might help.

    Betta with white spots on head

    That sounds like a fungal illness. Daily small water changes should work. If they don't after few days, then try meds.

    Newbie - Plants have black spots?

    Hey! The first plant looks like an anubias, and the 2nd one looks like a java fern. The first one is just getting dust algae on it and the 2nd one just has a pottasium deficiency. I wouldn't worry. It's fine and both plants are ok.

    29 Gallon Tank Deciding on tank mates for gourami(s?)

    Pretty sure it does. I don't have shrimp, but that's what I heard in the shrimp breeding tutorials I saw.

    Upgrading to 30 gallon! Stocking help

    If they're 2 females it's ok to keep them. 2 males could become aggressive. A pair could overbreed. Maybe you just donate the babies?

    algae wafers, veggies, uneaten food.

    Snail with my betta?

    Well, the cucumber is just an extra. They mostly live off algae so you need that in your tank. There's not a lot of algae in my tank so they also eat uneaten fish food. Tough also dropping in an algae wafer weekly would be cool if you wanted to be sure. I don't have nerites, I only have bladders...

    You can do a cucumber slice once every week and a half. I microwave them before adding them to the tank.

    Snail with my betta?

    I don't know about wafers, I've heard nerites don't really go for wafers.

    Snail with my betta?

    yes. just make sure that the veggies are ok. I feed my snails cucumber and/or lettuce once every 1 or 2 weeks.

    As long as there's not too many snails, you don't need to give them calcium. I don't give calcium to mine. Before you add them, test your betta's temperament with a bladder/ramshorn/pond snail. They are great test buddies.
