    Betta Fish Tank Heater Help

    i disagree with bettas being kept in anything smaller than a 10 gallon, anyway about your heater, you can easily use filter foam to make a false wall preventing your bettas from encroaching into that area. just your friendly neighborhood betta enthusiast.

    Does My Fish Have Dropsy?

    air stone wouldnt change serfice gas exchange, that is caused by serfice water movement. it is possibl to have a Co2 build up and him be more sensitive to it than the others. did you review my links and see if you could find symptoms that match.

    New 120 Gallon(w/40 Gallon Sump) Stocking

    if your doing tetra grouping avoid adding guppies. id say try some black skirt tetras and some blood fin tetras, you can add a couple corries and a peacock eel too. if you aquascape it you can add different habitat zones, this will further add to your stock choices.

    on top of the fact that you could lack O2 the other possibility is you have too much Co2, and how strong is your tanks current? it only stays in the water for 2 hours, anyone your nervous about go ahead and pull out. i would pull your snails out by default though, ive only known apple snails to...

    after your water change add prime as usual, its typically 2 drops per gallon, wait a few hours because you dont want to destroy the prime, after 4-6 hours figure out how much water in gallons is actually in your tank, dont go off of the tanks capacity as it isnt holding its max. when you figured...

    the other way to get air would be to create more surface current, but you have bettas, i would not suggest this, to much current will tire out a betta and kill them if your tank is 20 gallons, it doesn't hold 20 gallons, thats why i said physical gallons, take into account your sub strait...

    u can use prime to remove chlorinates, and 1/2 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide per 5 physical gallons of water to kill of stubborn parasites, bacteria and algae, heavy metal counts would be effected by both, im more experienced with bettas than guppies but do you know what your gas levels are?

    ten would be the best because it can pass the most gasses via larger surface area. the bettas will do best in them if you go with the 15 tall u will need to increase current which would put stress on any betta not raised in the current sence being a fry
