Not sure if someone already said this but I just wanted to add that it looks like you have Java fern planted into the substrate. If their rhizomes are buried then the whole plant will die. You can bury just their roots or tie them onto your hard scape instead.
It looks great otherwise, I love...
A 3 gallon is too small for a betta by itself. If I were you I’d just wait until you upgrade to a 10 gallon before you add any tank mates.
If you’re totally set on getting tank mates right now then I would do an amano instead of a Nerite snail because of their low bio load.
I no longer have this betta, but he was a pro at making bubble nests! His were always huge and were made in a few hours.
The only one that stayed together for long is when he was sick and in quarentine, probably because of the still water.
What size tank/tanks are they all in? And what do you mean by one cup of water 3x a week, do you mean the literal measurement a cup?
This was most likely caused by bad water quality, do an 80% WC on all of your tanks, because the water is probably bad in all of them.
Then purchase a test kit...
I made these vegan donuts today! They’re baked not fried and they were SO GOOD.
Used this recipe, it’s not vegan but its easy to tweek it.

My moms pic vs mine lol.
Float the container in the tank to match the temp and then get a pre filter sponge to block the fish from getting stuck. If you have to order one you can temporarily use a rag towel or cloth to tie to the intake.
Don’t lower that water level because I think that will damage the motor if it’s...
Most that I know about this hobby is from spending a lot of time here on fishlore, not from experience. I’ve never kept neons before so if others who have say that 10 gallons is too small, I would take their advice over mine.
This is likely just because of bad water parameters. Because you didn’t have a test kit her water has probably been bad for a while. That would explain the constant coming up for air; prolonged exposure to ammonia will damage their gills and suffocate them. However coming up for air every 5 mins...
I agree with post above, probably not. Snails want to explore and feel everything.
Although it’s possible that it could be trying to mate with the nerite, in which case it would get frustrated and leave.
She’s lived a long life and laid lots of egg clutches but in the last month she’s been very lethargic. Today her mantle collapsed, she passed the smell check so she’s not dead but she’s not reacting to touch and she can’t close her trap door.
What‘s the best way to euthanize her? Tomorrow I’m...
