Agreed with the above on not over-medicating. He sounds neglected, and will probably perk up with regular feelings, clean water, and warmth. I'm lazy and don't like to lower my water level, and...

I wouldn't subject them to an unheated tank. Bettas are toted around on this forum as being overly hardy: they are fairly hardy but will not thrive when their temperatures are allowed to fluctuate. A...

As mentioned, a female betta splendens would be a decent option. As mentioned, a King betta wouldn't be a great match for a stocked 10g. They're big dudes, and can be just as mean as any male...

I've had untold number of bettas, and every one will eat my bottom feeder's food. I've found scooping it into a cup (like the ones they often come in at Walmart, which float) and allowing it to bob...

I've done full substrate changes without too huge of a hiccup, but it's hit and miss. That 20lb bag if Eco complete will be SO small in your tank. I love it and all, but those bags are weeny, it...

Nice! I've got penny wort in the works as mentioned, and some already planted, so growing and rooting it's an option.

For the hygros, any suggestions as to the heartiest type? I've never had good...

Talking Insight into filling out the top of a 36?

Hey! Just got a 36g with stand at Petsmart for only $145 (yes!! Reg. $240!)) for my birthday. We broke down our overgrown 5.5 and 10g, which contributed nicely to our flora, but the tank is super...

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...

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.

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...
