    Stocking Tank Mates With Betta Help

    I I would not do a sorority in a 10 gallon tank, youd need at least a 20 gallon long. But the Min number of females I'd do is 5 to space out the aggression, and the tank should be heavily planted to break up their line of sight. But a sorority in a 10 gallon is really a disaster waiting to...

    Help My Sister Didn't Maintain Her Fish Tank. Please Help!!

    If you were to clean the walls this time, and then next time do the gravel that would work too. instead of focusing on cleaning the gravel while doing the smaller water change. This is true though, all ways are acceptable ways of doing it, you just need to make sure the fish is acclimated...

    Help My Sister Didn't Maintain Her Fish Tank. Please Help!!

    I think you guys are forgetting that this fish will need to be acclimated to clean water. Just suddenly putting the poor dear into clean water will end up doing more harm than good XP

    Help My Sister Didn't Maintain Her Fish Tank. Please Help!!

    Personally, I would do a few smaller changes instead of just doing one larger water change right off the bat. the ammonia isnt horrible and the fish would feel better if you lowered the nitrates at a slower pace imo. since the tanks already 30% empty I'd do maybe a 25% water change now, then...

    Help My Sister Didn't Maintain Her Fish Tank. Please Help!!

    Would you mind taking a picture for me if you dont mind? :3 I'm pretty sure it most likely is algae, and there's a few ways we can figure out how to fix that issue for her. (adding live plants help, which is why I asked if theres any plants in there currently.) when you get a chance can you...

    Help My Sister Didn't Maintain Her Fish Tank. Please Help!!

    Do you happen to have a test kit on you to check the water's ammonia, nitrites and nitrates by any chance? Depending on what the tests read you may have to slowly clean the tank up instead of just doing it all at once. What size tank is it? Does it have any lighting / plants? And are you sure...

    Stocking Tank Mates With Betta Help

    I agree with everything that was said. It'll definitely depend on your betta, but seeing as he didnt like the snail he probably wont be fish friendly. Even if they DO get along, keep in mind that bettas personalities tend to change as they mature, so they may end up turning aggressive towards...

    Bettas Missing Tail And Vacation

    How strong is the current from your filter? Does he seem to have trouble swimming at all? I have a feeling he might be having a bit of a hard time swimming and that's why he's nipping his fins. Have you ever tried lowering the water levels and seeing if that helps any? I've done this for...
