    I Made A Huge Mistake And Now Nothing Is Helping

    So for my betta sorority I was getting all my fish from the same seller and they were quarantined before they got to me, so I wasn't quarantining my girls when I got them. Now I made a rookie mistake and I should've quarantined new fish that I got from a different seller but I didn't even think...

    Quick, Easy, Cheap, Diy Ways To Cover An Intake?

    I usually have a sponge over mine but I'm giving away one of my setups to my little sister when my mum comes around to get the tank, so I need something to cover the intake until I can get a new sponge. I have female bettas so it's important it's covered.

    Can I Keep L333's With Female Bettas?

    It seems like they match up through some research. I'll be increasing some flow to that tank in areas that the girls don't use, but otherwise it seems my tank is fit for 2 L333's. Just double checking this is a reasonable idea as theyre on their way.

    I Need Lot Of Tannins For A Black Water Biotope For Bettas But Indian Leaves Are'nt Cutting It

    So, I have wood on the way. But I don't think it's a type of wood that releases a lot of tannins. I've been adding Indian almond leaves into the tank for about a month to create leaf litter but it's still only slightly stained (The almond leaves are A+++ grade) I really want to get this water...

    What's Blackwater?

    I heard that tetras can only spawn in blackwater... But I don't know what blackwater is. By what I've heard it seems to me to be water with lots of tannins or something, am I right or am I way off?

    Casually Saved Some Fishy Lives Today.

    So I went into a health place for an appointment today and noticed a bowl with 2 goldfish in there, Romeo and Juliet. I told the girl in the front desk: "Are you guys aware that you need a bigger tank for 2 comet gold fish?" and the girl said "I didn't know that but it's a little obvious they...

    Why Wont They Spawn?!?!

    So here's the details: 12 Litre tub with Almond leaves soaking for a week and some malachite blue, air stone on the side. Added a fresh almond leaf to float. There a granite tunnel and an anubias nana in there for hiding. I put in Cirrus to get to work, took a long time to get him to make a...

    I Think I Got Misinformed On Breeding Mystery Snails

    I was told by the person who I purchased 5 from that "if there are two in the tank they will breed" meaning they change genders. So even when 4 of the snails died after getting them, and I was left with the one I had previously and a medium sized one from the person, I still believed that it...

    So as usual, I've been brainstorming tank ideas. This time it's a 500 litre tank filled with tannins. Gravel of different sizes and leaf litter for a substrate, a giant piece of dirft wood with lots of branches to swim through. I want the tank to contain a pair of Betta Macrostoma. What are...

    Why Are Fish-in-cycles Frowned Upon So Much?

    By the time you learn of the nitrogen cycle, you also understand the safe levels of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate, but people still think a fish-in-cycle is too dangerous. If the levels are monitored and the tank is maintained then what can the harm be?

    Best Camera Settings For Taking Photoes Of Your Fish??

    I'm having a lot of troubles trying to get this phone (Microsoft Lumia) to stop making my pictures look bad. How the camera looks before a picture is taken looks great, but once it's taken my camera puts a weird filter on it. I've fiddled around with the settings, the ISO, brightness, contrast...

    I Don't Know What To Say About This Tragedy :(

    One of my sisters friends heard I "look after fish" and came to me with one of the saddest stories I've ever heard... This girl pulled out one of those tiny Tupperware containers from her bag (the kind that are about 5cm all round squares) and opened the lid. Inside was a male halfmoon betta...
