    Question Betta With Mystery Illness

    You can, I don’t like too. I did it once and I think it killed the bacteria in my tank and I was having trouble keeping my parameters stable. I think because of the tea tree oil in it. Had to go back to 3 (one gallon) water changes a week to keep the ammonia down. I’d rather just medicate...

    Child Proof Fish

    I agree, it may take time and diligence but mentally disabled children, and all children will eventually understand basic care and compassion for another living thing. Children pick up on routines pretty quickly if they are consistent. I work with special needs children and they understand way...

    Help Water Change Schedule

    If you are diligently changing the water and can keep it in the proper perimeters, it should be fine for a while, I’d say check for signs of stress like torn fins or listlessness which are signs of the tank being too small. We won some at a county fair and 2/3 survived ( one only lived like 2...

    The Jack Dempsey!

    AWWW how adorable. I had one of those when I was young in my uncles fish tank. He was huge!! I don't see a problem but, I wouldn't keep anything with him that can fit in his mouth. Ours seemed to get along with a Pleco, and convicts pretty good.

    Ammonia Not Leaving

    I would just change the water with purified drinking water, you can add the prime later. I have never used ammo lock. Low water level isnt a big issue. It seems that there is probably another contaminant in you water. I have never heard of over feeding a fish one night and having such a...

    Temp Problem... Heater Suggestions

    Ok update! As per my husband’s suggestion, I adjusted the heater so that it is only submerged to the minimum water line and it is holding at 80 degrees. I am going to call the company because it was supposed to have a safety. Looking into ordering an adjustable one.

    Important I Think I Might Have Murdered My Betta Accidentally

    I too have had to keep my little one from sharing his popsicles with the fish. Life isn’t perfect and animals are resilient to some mistakes. My oldest gave my chihuahua the skin off of his turkey leg and she got pancreatitis last thanksgiving... pets are just like kids, stuff happens, just do...

    Temp Problem... Heater Suggestions

    Yes that’s it... my husband was saying that I repositioned it so that it was full submerged, I guess I had it partly above the water line so when I plug it back in I’ll move it but, I still want to get something adjustable. He likes it hot but, 88 degrees is much

    Temp Problem... Heater Suggestions

    I believe so, it’s a 10w no setting and a safety set at 85 degrees, I just unplugged it for a bit a cracked the lid, dude is looking fine so I’m not too concerned. All of the adjustable heaters are like 25w so I’m worried that I will have the same problem of over heating. I’m looking on amazon...

    Hello fish fam... I am a new Betta mom. I used to have a lot of fish, including Bettas as a hobby with my uncle years and years ago. I also worked at a few pet stores as a teenager. So, my 2 year old is obsessed with fish and considering my past experience I thought it would be easy to start...
