    Breeding Bettas

    All the bettas we buy from thailand and those places are raise in jars. So do the ones in petco and Petsmat. Here is an example of a breeding farm in Thailand. Photo credit ZeroViolet Any breeder that tell you that they are raising more than 100 bettas in separate cycled tanks for each is...

    Breeding Bettas

    you do not need a cycle tank for each fry, lol thats nearly impossible. You can do jars when you first take all the males out. What you need to do is have a plan of what to do with the fry once they are ready to go home. Like who is going to take them or if there is a LFS that is willing to take...

    Guppies Tank Mates

    Sorry but this is a no no, plecos grow way too big for a 5g, they will literally grow bigger than the 5g. Corydoras are also a no no because you need a group of 5 or more for them to be happy and a 5g tank is not enough room for 5 cordydoras. i would only suggest a snail if you really want to...

    Is This Set Up Good For Betta Fry?

    It seems that you have been doing a good job! i like your set up a lot and thats how i have my fry tanks set up. i would recommend getting those live food going asap because even if they dont eat it right away you know they will get to it later on so you dont have to worry about having to...

    Surprised With Sand Substrate?

    i have never been able to keep up with sand! i do not like it at all. I love the look but thats about it. I tried white sand twice already and it just looks way too dirty for me. Siphoning is a mess too, it gets everywhere and i couldt keep my plants rooted, they kept coming out of the sand...

    Moved My Betta To A Bigger Tank..think He Was Happier In Smaller One..

    Great looking tank and fish! i also feel that bettas do better in 5g tanks. My bettas in 5g tanks do much better than the ones i have in 10g but again he might just need to get used to his new enviroment. I put a betta in a 30g and all he did was hide for weeks, so i had to move it back to his 5g

    Is My Betta Okay?

    a bubble nest is not always a sign that your betta is happy. I have seen bettas with bubble nest even in really crappy environments. I can see some at Petco with a bubble nest on those little cups.

    Is My Betta Okay?

    The snail in there was not the problem, your water parameters most likely is the problem. Like suggested above invest in a API water test kit. The color change in the betta is normal, bettas with the marble gene do this. If you dont keep your betta in a cycled tank, you are going to constantly...

    Question White Betta Changing Color?
