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...

    Hiya. 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...

    Hi, 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). Thanks!

    New Betta needs a name! :)

    Thoughts? edit: 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...
