    Hi, I've been lurking around the forums for a bit doing research and finding inspiration. The community looks great so I decided to join in! I guess you could say I got bit by the aquascaping bug (or is it fish?) this year by watching a lot of youtube videos. Anyone else enamored with Serpa...

    So i've kept about 5 betta fish and am on number 6. They all had the uncanny ability to be susceptible to fin rot. 2 of them died from it. I was wondering how to prevent that from happening to my new betta, Neptune. Thanks for the help, i appreciate it.

  7. Substrate
    I'm looking into moving my 10 gallon betta planted tank to a 20 gallon and would like some advice on substrate that is gentle on fins and decent for plants. The 10 gallon now has Spectrastone gravel, with a black coating. I want to be cautious of sharp, rough materials that could shred fins...

    Hello! My Platinum white halfmoon dumbo betta has pretty badly ripped fins :(. He is very healthy eats frozen and the best pellets. I also house ghost shrimp and an adult brisslenose pleco with my betta. She often leaves lots of poop everyday(a lot). My water chemistry is practically perfect...

    I set up my very first planted tank (low tech) on March 6. It’s a Tetra 10 gal with a 50 watt heater and an Aqueon QuietFlo 10 hang-on-back filter. I chucked the carbon inserts in favor of filter sponge and bio rings which utilized biomedia from my established tank and I added a pre-filter...

    Hi all! I’ve currently got a glass lily pipe in my aquarium, which is 90cm long, 35cm deep, 50cm high. I’m curious as to if that’s enough circulation to get water flowing around all the hardscape and plants. Followup question: I’m considering switching to a stainless steel inflow/outflow if...

    So, I’m just curious about people’s thoughts on using salt in planted tanks. My betta has a bit of fin rot, I know he will respond well to salt because I used it early on in his tank that had no plants. Now that he’s in my 10 gal planted tank, I would like to try this remedy again along with...

    Hello Everyone We're new to fish parenting and need some help. We bought a little Betta from a fish shop last week. When we got him home we noticed some white discolouration around his mouth. We're wondering if this is a sign of a disease such as ich or similar. Or maybe the white colouring is...

    Hi there! I have a tank with 6 peppered cory catfish, a betta, some snails, and some shrimp. I also have lots of live plants. I'm a newer aquarium keeper, and noticed a few white specks on my betta. When I asked my much more experienced friend to take a look at him, she confirmed it was an...
  18. General Planted Tank Discussion

    I have a 25L (~7g) Walstad, densely planted tank with a male betta. From what I've seen, this betta's nature is generally quite chilled out; he's lived with and never bothered the snails in the tank, and he struggled to work out that bloodworms were food for a long time. Yesterday I bought 5...

    Yesterday I noticed my blind female betta was laying at the bottom of the tank a lot, not moving, and when I prompted her to move, she swam funny in small bursts so I assumed she had swim bladder disease and didn't feed her. I told myself if she still had it the next day I would feed her some...
