Need filter recommendations

Hello everyone,
Recently the filter that I had on my 10 gallon tank died on me so I am looking for a new filter. I loved my old filter because it was quiet, and had an adjustable flow switch....

Thanks! I'm looking into getting fluffier plants for cover. The betta holds her own and is short-finned, so she's alright.

I'm having trouble sexing them, though- is there a definitive way to?...

I'm not concerned about the guppies- this is about the glo fish.

The guppies are gone, actually- but there was a adult male to female ratio of 1:3 and the rest were juvies. I'm not new to gups,...

Question Help w/rescued glofish [56k warn]

Hi all,

My tanks are usually "rescue" tanks for the fish my dormmates get and know nothing about. I take them in from my peers under the condition they won't get more (LOL). Most recently, I took...

I saw your post on tumblr about this- my one suggestion is to be careful of heating them. When I had a mass QT, I had my splendens in their cups in a bigger bin filled with a bit of water and a...

It's a misconception that tail types are almost like different breeds. In reality, no specific tail type is more aggressive, etc. than any other splenden, though it's fair to say that PKs and other...

It's thickened scales that makes it a dragon. The ring around the eye is not indicative. Actually, some (poor things!) have scaling that goes over their eyes, even.

OP, you betta is first a double...

Was his top fin always twisted? Sometimes they get that way from hard water, especially if it's a CT. Though, def. do a water change and check your nitrates (and ammonia, if applicable), since that's...

Tbh nothing fancy. Get him at least 2g, a heater is a must (do not pass it up, you simply cannot.), a bubbler is not needed in any way nor is a filter, really. If you filter the tank it cannot be a...

Wink Big update!

Well, we were noticing a lot of rot from our stem plants and really pathetic growth in most others. The dirt was unrelenting and the sand marred with dirt that came from the bottom.

Even then most are too stubborn, ignorant or flat out lazy to even do that!

That or they only look when the poor fish is half dead, missing fins, eyes, and has ammonia burns and stagnant blood.

Dont bury the rhizome (the hard part) under the gravel, or they'll suffocate and die.

Consider a marimo ball. My bettas rub all over them and they're funny little things. I also agree with the...

We're thinking of making more sponge filters...

We decided to rinse the dirt, too. Not sure if we were supposed to or not, but it ended up being a good choice. The dirt was gross and sucked up the moisture, so we over soaked it and then pulled the...
