    So my betta just recovered from dropsy a week ago and I'm just monitoring him temporarily in his container. I noticed that he has like colorless splotches and there are black scales around it and from above it doesn't seem cottony and his fins aren't shrinking and tattered. Behavior wise he has...

    Unfortunately I made an unwise decision to add a new betta with my other one. They’re both females, but this one (her name is Neb) is much smaller than I realized, and unfortunately was attacked by the other one and is now missing parts of her tail/fins. She sinks to the bottom of the tank now...

    I am planning on heavily planting my 20 gallon long. But I am worried about getting enough flow as well as distributing the Co2 well enough. (I have had hair algae problems before attempting this). Does anyone have a setup or recommendation for filters/power heads and placement for that? I...

    What stores have Malaysian trumpet snails (Melanoides tuberculata) and Bamboo shrimp (Atyopsis moluccensis)? I have a planted aquarium I am setting up for Betta and was told those snails and shrimp are compatible with Bettas. Also, is there a local source for Blackworms (Lumbriculus variegatus)?

    I got a white betta about a month ago and his fin is getting see-through. I don’t know what it is. I’m feeding him regularly with dry food and once a week with live food. He lives in a 12 liter aquarium. He looks energised and swims around a lot.

    Hi everyone, I am new to the aquarium world and bought a weed looking plant from my local pet store. I’m thinking about removing it, not only because it grows way too fast and looks a bit ugly, but because no google search can help me identify it and I don’t want to inadvertently harm my betta...
  10. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi everyone! This is my first time owning any kind of aquatic life and I bought a 6 gallon planted tank about a month ago. For now, I have some basic plants and decor as well as a nerite snail. I’m planning to later add some cherry shrimp + java moss and then a male betta. I guess I’m looking...

    Hello everyone, I’m came here to ask for help to see if anyone can help me to identify if my wife’s betta has fin rot. I personally don’t think so. But, I’m asking because I’m not at expert in the subject. I took some pictures of “Evaristo” hope this can help: I will really appreciate any...

    Well, I have been suggesting high end bettas as a nano tank fish for a while now and it finally bit me....I went and got one. Hes coming in in a few weeks and I wanted to set up a simple minimalist tank to sit in my Sunroom/Den that would show off the fish and look classy. Heres the betta I...

    My Betta recently produced a bubble nest, and he's protective over it. Like, flaring at his own reflection and things like that. When will he forget about it?

  18. Lighting
    This happened when I had turned off his lights for about 5 minutes, then, came back in and turned the lights on. It was genuinely terrifying, and I'm wondering if this has affected his health or anything.

    My betta has had these two white spots (strangely, almost symmetrical) on his head for at least 5 days, likely more. The one on his left side seems to be embedded, while the one on his right side is sticking into the water a bit. He is eating fine but is sticking to the top of the tank a lot...
