So, Nebula, also known as "work betta" has become a bit sedentary. He was the Betta I kept from the three I took home from a petstupid that shrugged, looked at the fish, and said, "yup, those are probably gonna die overnight."
I got him in december. I tried to attach a picture, but Fishlore...
Allrighty, my fishy geniuses. Please apply your brains to my scenario.
- I am getting some sunsun canister filters for my 40 gallon and 55 gallon aquariums.
- I live in a rented, carpeted room in a house. My landlord lives beneath me
So every canister filter I reviewed at all price points...
I've had a male Betta Fish in a 20 gallon fish tank for about ... 1.5 months. I was loosely monitoring his behavior and condition, as I had just gotten him, and noticed that he remained frantic in his patrolling, although his health was improving.
I thought it would ease over time, as the tank...
Is it possible to create a paludrium with a soil/gravel or sand based plateau, and a deep water section, while mitigating or eradicating the possibility of ammonia pockets? Can you do this with heavily-rooted plants?
Or, do y'all have any methods you've used/think would work
I got my hands on a 40 gallon breeder/stand/lid for $75!
So Reu (he's the calico fish) has been upgraded and they have a buddy!!
If you have name ideas, please post them.
[This is a little belated, but holiday madness was a definite thing this year.]
I'd like to set-up my 20 tall as a kind of vivarium, with a 8-10gallon water capacity and some land w/ plants.
Do you all know anything about how best to do that? How best to create this environment and make it shrimp safe and healthy.
Have a tiny conceptual diagram:
This is almost directly under the tank lights, or with flash. Are these normal head scales or is there something amiss? Velvet? The ones with flash look a bit gold.
[Just got home from pet store yesterday. In breeders net in a cycled tank with temp ~77F. He has mostly clamped fins...
I just wanted to let y'all know that Kel seems to have dropsy. As of today he is almost fully pineconing.
I do have some Maracyn 2 on hand that I started on yesterday.
A few questions:
- Should I still try and feed him/will it make things worse for him?
- thoughts on epsom...
What kind of music do you all enjoy? What are you currently listening to? Genres/artists/bands/songs/cds....
I want to know! I'm currently listening to MR2 by Miracles of Modern Science -- it's an odd song that popped up on my radio.
I have a Ryukin named Reu (as of last Tuesday) who is currently a little larger than my thumb. He is in a 20 long tank by himself, soon to be a 29 gallon tank (within ~ 1wk, filter media, everything in that tank is planned to move).
My research lead me to believe that a 20 gallon would...
Can anyone tell me what kind of fish this is?
This is from an ad on my local craigslist. I'm wondering if I bought the tank, if I could rehome it to someone with the right sized tank (unless I already have one the right size).
I'd like to cultivate some live food for my bettas. I know about mosquito larva, but I'm trying not to invite Zika, heh, though the larva are probably readily available here in FL. I also don't want my roommates to kill me for worsening the mosquito swarms outside.... I'm also worried about...
Do y'all know if this is normal: betta never quite closing mouth?
He eats and he yawns, so his mouth isnt stuck slightly open. Just wondering if it's a normal behavior (like people who have their mouths slightly parted when relaxed) or a symptom of something....
Just introducing the sisters. I've had them for several months now.
Eowyn (post and pre marbling)

Pixie - Now and Then
Morraine's photo is too large, so I'll post it later.
For those who would want to know:
- they are siblings
He is from a petstore. I check on their bettas whenever I go. He looked like he had given up, and I had been speaking to a betta rehabilitator in Arizona about my moral dilemma ... so he came with me on Tuesday I think it was.
The first day he just laid on the floor...
Have any of you ever adopted a betta fish?
I have an additional tank and I'd love to adopt a betta in need rather than buy one from the store.
What are your thoughts? Any experiences? Know of any bettas that need a home?
My betta, Kel, has a raised bump on one side that is the size of a couple scales. It alllllmost looks as though some are peeling away, but it is discolored and catches the light from certain angles.
Any thoughts on what this might be?
He has showed no major...
