    10 Gallon Tank Betta fins coming back in black

    I have a male rosetail Betta who had mild finrot. With more water changes, better and more varied diet, and treatment with aquarium salt. his fins are coming back in, and he seems perky and healthy. However. The regrowing ends of his fins are coming in translucent black. Not clear as I might...

    Amano shrimp attacking and tearing betta tail!

    Update: I've donated all 7 amano shrimp back to the lfs. I couldn't get the walstad parameters right in time and didn't think i'd be able to keep up with the water management + these guys were just too big - the smallest was 1.5in long (plus, I kinda lost all attachment for them after the tail...

    Amano shrimp attacking and tearing betta tail!

    Update: I've fed the shrimp to satiety, till they left the last bit of algae wafer untouched for an hour. They seem in better shape now, calmer and not quite that desperate and are leaving the betta alone. I've looked very carefully and none of these dudes show signs of being anything but amano...

    Amano shrimp attacking and tearing betta tail!

    This morning I saw something I had thought was impossible, one of my amano shrimp full out attacked my betta's tail. I was feeding them their algae wafer ration. Crayons got inquisitive and got between an amano and his piece of wafer. The amano jumped on his tail and hung on as crayons thrashed...

    Biggest Amano shrimp getting an orange tint.

    Update: Welp, 8 days on. No issues. These guys are definitely orange tinted, but showing no difficulties and going on with their shrimpy lives as usual.

    10 Gallon Tank Colouration or beginning Fin Rot? Paranoid BettaGuy

    Thanks, i gotta stop being so paranoid. My wife is giving me the stink eye because I've got my eyes on my boy so much (seriously, even I'm beginning to be embarrassed and I'm sure crayons the betta would take out a restraining order on me if he could but I'm gonna monitor for sure. I'll also...

    10 Gallon Tank Colouration or beginning Fin Rot? Paranoid BettaGuy

    Hi, so this wont be the first time I've been paranoid, but I wanted to ask for an opinion. I have a over-halfmoon/ Rosetail betta with dark tips of fins.. he's always had a raggedy edge and his fins have grown out in the 2 months i've had him. I've seen no real sign of tail erosion, though in...

    Biggest Amano shrimp getting an orange tint.

    Thanks. I'll stop obsessing and just monitor. Some of this orange tint business might also be lighting + water staining from the catappa, along with eating tannins.

    10 Gallon Tank Do big tail bettas need more food?

    Here's one from when I got him, abt 2 months ago. Thought he looked like a halfmoon then. His fins sure have grown! Hadn't realised until i went looking for this video..

    Meet Chompy, my horned Nerite! Is he fully grown?

    Thanks both. How big do horned Nerites grow? do all Nerites have the same lifespan of does it vary across the types? sorry for the bold type. I can't figure out why it won't turn off

    Biggest Amano shrimp getting an orange tint.

    I got 10 Amano shrimp about 2 months ago. They seem to do well and I've got several molts. They were pretty big sized, with the biggest being almost 1.25inches. Today i can count 7 at feeding time but the largest one , and one other smaller one have taken on an orange tint. They seem to be...

    Meet Chompy, my horned Nerite! Is he fully grown?

    Picked up this cute guy yesterday. Crayons the betta acted shamefully, flaring at him for an hour, but had the good sense not to try anything. I thought he was a juvenile, but a little googling showed that these guys only seem to live a year and don't grow very big. He's about half an inch...

    10 Gallon Tank Do big tail bettas need more food?

    Glad to know. He's my little pig. I'll bring him to a smaller feed (I'm sure he'll be grumpy abt it). I'll also try to see if I can get frozen daphnia. You gave me a valuable piece of info - I didn't realize he was a rosetail. I feel bad now, the first google result is saying how rosetails...

    10 Gallon Tank Do big tail bettas need more food?

    Thanks for the inputs. Much appreciated Here's a video of him. IMO he is a little thin. Wdyt? I did the recommended feeding but pellet sizes vary, and i finally realised i was underfeeding him. I have now been giving him enough to 'soft round' his stomach and he's been seeming much happier...

    10 Gallon Tank Do big tail bettas need more food?

    Just a question. New to bettas, have had a halfmoon in a 10g cycled and filtered abt 2 months. He's doing well, but it occured to me, while he's very healthy he swims across a 10g long in little bursts, dragging his big tail. Now, that's effortful and takes energy, and that tail is a big energy...

    10 Gallon Tank Multiple qs: opinions on jean betta (thailand) mini-pellets? amount to feed? to flare or not to flare?

    ok, so one more update and an important one. after a month of 4 pellets x3times, I became convinced he was underfed. he didn't put on weight and was beginning to look stressed and listless. I threw caution to the winds and fed him 15 pellets twice a day for 2 days and he looks much better...
