    I was reading a thread on another site about how bettas need vitamins, or they can get an S-shaped curve to their body from deficiencies. It was recommended to use any multi-vitamin pill and crush it up. I know I can't believe everything I read on the Internet so I wanted to ask if anyone here...

    Hi, I'm Rette. I live in Northern Colorado and have really only dabbled in aquatic husbandry. I've kept a handful of bettas alive the last couple years (simultaneously even) and have recently branched into starting a planted 10 gallon tank. This has quickly corrupted me into planting all of my...

    Stating the obvious to some, so please let me indulge. I move my fish around from 10 gallon to 29g. I have Corys, Otos, female Bettas and Gouramis. All of them behave better in a 29g. My water parameters aside, bigger is better. The type of landscaping is next in importance. The Corys and...

The room temp is about 65 and stays about there till approx May when the sun comes back to Illinois. My dad...

    Alright, so after having a 2.5 gallon tank and going through the hassle of cycling it (not done yet), I've decided to dive into a 6.6 gallon fishless cycle. I'm pretty new and might need some advice, so chime in, because it's always appreciated. First off, my water source base test using the...

    I recently have encountered an issue in my first attempt to breed my bettas. Tank set up: 10 gallon bare bottom with java moss, 1/3 of a styrafoam cup for my males bubble nest, 4" of water, heater kept at 78, and a cover for humidity. I was given a beautiful halfmoon male betta for my birthday...
