    HELP Very Sick Betta

    A lot of medicines can be harmful to bettas. He's probably getting old, male bettas are sold in shops older than females. Although the lifespan of a betta can be anywhere between 2-5 years, 2-3 is more common. I'm going through something similar with my elder female betta. I lowered the water...

    Fish stocking for my tank

    Dwarf gouramis may or may not be aggressive so have a back up plan just in case. A honey gourami might work better but some people say they need to be kept in groups. Albino corydoras get a bit big for a 50 l (15g) tank. You should try salt and pepper corydoras or another pygmy corydora species.

Both are doable...

    5 Gallon Tank What to do with the bugs in my tank?

    Can you describe the bugs a bit better? I can't quite tell from the pictures. The "stretchy body with a shell" might be a baby pond or bladder snail, people see them as pests but they also do a good job on algae control.

    75 Gallon Tank Male Mollies suddenly fighting

    Yeah, mollies can be aggressive jerks. If you rearrange the tank it should mess up their territories and they'll have to establish new ones, might help.
