    oh my gosh he's such a good boy <3 and you're doing great, i'm so glad you got the test kit and he's settling in better now! question: do you test your tap water before or after you dechlorinate it? just asking bc sometimes the process of chlorine breaking down can produce ammonia so that's why...

    (betta) Intro With So Many Beginner Questions

    I test around once a week or more since my tank is mature but if your tank isn't cycled yet you should probably test for ammonia more often I think he'll be fine if you leave him in for water changes. How is he doing now?

    (betta) Intro With So Many Beginner Questions

    He's so adorable, and you're already such a dedicated betta mom so don't be too hard on yourself, you're trying your best so far :emoji_hearts: I wouldn't worry about the filter intake too much if it's just one of those air driven ones but if the current is bothering him (probably because of...

    (betta) Intro With So Many Beginner Questions

    Hm well then if he's not flaring maybe it doesn't stress him quite so much to see his reflection so I guess that's good I'd go for the 50% WC and if you're worried about the filter intake you could use a prefilter sponge or you could cover up the end with soft mesh or pantyhose (brand new/clean)...

    (betta) Intro With So Many Beginner Questions

    You sound like you're going to be a great betta parent! I don't have too much to add because everyone else gave good answers already but 1) I would put the filter in, as well as doing water changes like Fins said until it gets cycled 2-3) I second the recommendation for Prime but in the...

    How To: Cheap DIY Betta Tank with Stuff from the Dollar Store

    Thanks everyone Fins, I made sure the lei was non toxic and not treated with anything and I've tested some of the homemade flower decorations with my own fishy and it seems fine, but that is good to keep in mind, maybe I'll make an annotation on the video then to be safe

    How To: Cheap DIY Betta Tank with Stuff from the Dollar Store

    Hey guys, I made a little video guide for setting up a cheap tank with only stuff from the dollar store/walmart/etc intended for people (mostly on facebook, not you guys) who say they can't afford anything bigger than a bowl for their betta to show them an alternative that also costs as little...

    How to stop tail biting?

    Well the past few days he seems to be feeling a bit better, not having swim bladder problems anymore, but I did finally witness him biting his own fins, so after determining that was the cause I decided to just take out the divider and add more fake plants since they weren't scratching him, what...

    How to stop tail biting?

    ah, do you think that's it? Well then I guess I'll leave the divider then until I can get my new 20G cycled for Gary, which I was planning on doing anyway (funny story: I originally planned to only have snails in this tank but then the bettas won my heart again :') ) it kinda worries me that it...
