    Question Food For Ghost Shrimp

    I am getting 3 ghost shrimp tomorrow. I'm newish with these. I have a 5 gallon tank with a betta. (I can have 3 shrimp and a betta in 5 gallons, right?) I feed my Betta and he eats up every ounce of food very quickly so there isn't any extra for the shrimp to eat. My tank stays very clean. Not...

    Help Betta Scales Falling Off?

    My Betta gets these on occasion as well. I also thought it was from him getting injured from something in his tank. It goes away fairly about a week I would guess? I think I may have to take out his ship and sand down some spots a bit more on the inside.

    Help Is My Snail Dead?

    This sneaky nerite snail got out of the tank and was out for about 5 days. I finally found him and he was dry and his little flap door deal was dried shut. I threw him back in the tank in hopes he would rehydrate and still be alive. He's been in there for almost 24 hours and he just bobs there...

    Betta Dying!

    Ok sorry it's been so long! Somehow he survived that! But now I'm worried again! He sends to be doing pretty good but he seems constipated and having trouble pooping. His poop is kinda thick and white. Now I was watching him and he looks like he may have fin rot! His tail has always had dark...

    Betta Dying!

    So he ate this morning and seems to be doing ok. I finally got a photo this evening. There's also this light colored spot he has that we didn't remember but it almost looks light blue to me like it's just his fin pigment. It's been there for at least a week or longer and no ick has appeared...

    Betta Dying!

    I'll do daily 25% water changes then for the next week and see what happens. I mean strip test thingies. The temp is about 78 degrees. I'm in bed about to go to sleep. I have to be up in a few hours and I need like 10 hours of sleep so it's gonna be brutal. But I'll get you the water parameters...

    Betta Dying!

    New To Here!

    Hello! I'm new. I recently posted as I'm pretty sure my betta is dying and I don't know what's wrong or how to help him. This makes me sad. I'm also in a place where I don't have access to meds unless I use my Amazon Prime and get it here in two days. Sucks.

    Betta Dying!

    I have a betta named Buddy. Had him for about 8 months maybe? This month I got a mystery snail and 2 ghost shrimp to join him. The mystery snail was fine. Buddy didn't really mind him. He got stuck in the filter and died. The ghost shrimp hide a lot. My fish got sick so he was in a separate...
