    Question About Tank Swim Space (betta)..

    Hello, I have a 10 gallon tank with one betta fish. I have had this fish over one year now, and saved him from deaths door more than once due to ammonia poisoning. He is thriving right now, and seems really happy, always makes bubble nests, and interacts with us when we approach the tank. My...

    Dwarf Gourami Acting Funny

    I think he's dead. He's laying on the tank floor now barely breathing. Not sure what I can do since I don't have a spare tank besides a 5.5 Gal that one betta is in.

    Dwarf Gourami Acting Funny

    He's been in the tank about 6 months, nothing new at all. The 2 gouramis were the last things I added. Not really, but his coloring is darker than usual. Haven't seen the poop in awhile.

As of the last few days/week I've noticed my other one has been sitting at the surface a lot, seems really bloated and isn't swimming around and being as active as...

    Do My Bettas Have Fin Rot?

    I have two Betta fish. One is in a 10 gallon and we have had him since June. The tanks cycled and I do 30%-50% water changes every 1 or 2 weeks. My other Betta we have in a 5.5 gallon and had him since maybe August or September. Both tanks have 0 ammonia ppm, 0 nitrite, 5ppm nitrates. I keep...

    Breeding Bettas In A 10 Gallon

    I'd imagine you'd have a hard time selling Betta fish because they are so common and cheap. Probably would end up costing more to breed and house than you'd be able to make in return. If you are serious about breeding, look into Discus or something that sells.

    My Tanks All Setup

    Just some pics of my tanks. Thank you to everyone on this forum for all the help. I started with 1 Betta in a tiny bowl and he was laying on the bottom of the tank and rapidly trying to get air, pretty much was white and dead. Now he's healthy and doing great in his 10 gallon. 55gal 20gal...

    Is My Filter Providing Air As Well?

    Take the pelco fish to your local pet's store and ask if they'll take him free, a mom and pop store should have no problem with it. Good luck with your Betta

    10 Gallon Cycle Questions

    I wouldn't bother with the filter and cleaning it. That's where good bacteria grows, you never want to rinse it with clean water only old tank water. Just rinse it off in the bucket of old tank water when you do your next water change. Keep doing 25-50 percent water changes every day or two...
