That makes sense. I mean, the lighting hasn't changed at all. I don't understand why he would start this up all of a sudden like he has. Stresses me out lol. I've worked hard on this betta, I don't want to lose him to something as stupid as lighting lol.
This is new behavior for him.
Suddenly he started gill flaring.
I recently added a new floating thermometer and thought that might be the cause. He kept flaring once I removed it though. He's a healthy fish
The only thing I can figure is he's threatened by his own reflection. I managed to catch...
Hey guys, I just did a water test just because, (I don't do them as often as I should) and some of my levels are really high.
I have a 10 gallon community tank with 5 fish: 1Molly/guppy hybrid, 1 golden honey gourami, and 3 glow tetras and 2 nerite snails (the left strip)
And I also have a 10...
So I have a Betta, his name is Crook.
Whenever I purchased him, he was labeled as a double tail. But as far as patterns go, I'm not certain.
It's hard to tell if he is truly a double tail, at least for me it is. I'm far from being an expert. What tail type do you think he is?
I have two 10 gallon tanks. The one has a betta, and the other has a few community fish and two nerite snails.
I stay in a basement that has no light source other than the ceiling lights.
There are 3 small windows but hardly let any light in.
Whenever the lights are off (in the basement and...
Okay! Thanks a lot! I just wanted to be sure since I've never dealt with it before.
And yeah he has changed a lot already, I've had him a few months and he has gained some red to his pectoral fins and he's a lighter blue.
I've noticed that the ends of my bettas fins are looking a bit off. Maybe I'm just losing it, but does it look almost milky to anyone else?
I've never dealt with fin rot before so does this look like the really stages of that manifesting?
Mind you I'm no expert but here are my thoughts.
I believe that abrasion (if it is an abrasion) is from an ornament of yours, even if it's not that particular one. I would suggest continuing with the treatment you have going on just in case it's more than that.
However, I also suggest swapping...
Seems like everybody else beat me to the punch but just to reiterate.
A filter and heater are a must have.
I'd do a 50 Watt heater with a dial to select the temperature (not one that has a pre-set temp) I keep mine set to 80°F.
Also, change to silk plants, it will keep your Betta's fins long...
Hey everyone! So I've been considering adding a BN Pleco to my my Betta tank. I just don't have very much knowledge on BN Plecos, or Plecos in general honestly. It's a 10 gallon tank, with plenty of silk plants, and a small plastic rock formation.
I just want to know if it's safe and if I'll...
This won't be for a long while but I am extremely interested in setting up a semi aggressive community tank.
I just have a few questions about how I should set this up for when I'm about to put together this tank.
What is the best tank size to have a tank like this? I'm not...
Yeah, I know that now . That's why I had so many issues with this last bit of fish I had. Like I said, I'm still not very knowledgeable and I'm still learning new things and different needs for different fish. I really appreciate all of the help though. It means a lot, really.
I ended up going with some male guppies. 3 yellows and a one that I can't remember the name of, but it is white and pink/light red in color.
And I did some reading, and apparently Molly's and guppies can cross breed. I'm thinking that is what my one is because the Molly's I had we're white and...
I thought this posted hours who but apparently it didn't. So! After look at the list, and there are a TON of fish on there. I've basically narrowed it down to the basics. Various Tetra's, Guppies, and Barb's. I couldn't tell you exactly which species of these fish I have available because I...
