    From white to black...what is my Betta?

    Obviously the breeder or seller (local fish store) was incorrect when labeling him as Platinum White. He had tiny streaks of black in his tail and a red dot on his head, but the rest was white / cellophane. Now he's mostly black. Pics are from mid-August through this week (some white light...

    Red Strings In Substrate?

    8 Gallon Aquarium Algae Tank Mates for Betta & ADF

    First, I know this is a small tank, but it's the only space that I have right now (sits on my desk), plus they say it is more difficult upkeep on a smaller tank, so I know if I can keep this one safe, then I would feel more comfortable with a larger tank when I have room for one.
