  1. Aquatic Discussion
    Okay, so I've been looking in to breeding bettas, and I've done A LOT of research. I got my male betta yesterday, and I've had my female betta for quite some time. They're in separate tanks right now (the male is in the spawning tank) but the tanks are pushed together so they can see each other...

    I decided I would upgrade Esteban's (my Betta fish) standard of living, so today I bought a 5 gallon tank. (I would have gone with 10, however I don't think I can get away with bringing anything bigger than a 5 gallon to college with me next fall. The only reason why I believe I can get away...

    Hi, I'm 18 and I'm from western NY. I have 2 tonkinese cats who are almost 6, a tuxedo cat who will be 15 in April, a mouse who will be 2 if he make it to Febuary, and a Betta fish whose name I use on this site. I have had a couple Bettas now, though Esteban has become very sentimental to...

    This is Fernando. I bought him about a year ago at a Petsmart. He's a half moon betta, and has always been small. With the recent 'end of the school year' stress, I pushed off cleaning his home far too often than not, and resulted in him dulling in color, not eating, and laying at the bottom for...

    I have had quite a few bettas over the years and have never had a problem with eating. However, Rubeus, my red crown-tail male I got on Friday (Now Monday) is not eating. The second night he ate a pellet but since then he doesn't seem to have eaten anything. I've tried pellets (a usual...

I hope it is as great as it looks! :) Well, in my zoo, I have my 5 awesome Purple Pincher hermit crabs, all of which are very friendly and love being handled (If you have any questions...

    I just recently recieved a beautiful Half-Moon male Betta for a Christmas gift. The case he came in had some waste at the bottom so I assumed he was eating. When I put him into his new home (about 2 gallons vase) he seems pretty alert and moving about, even blowing a few bubbles. I recognize...

    I just got a new betta from Meijer's since he was pretty cute and they had him in about 1 inch of water....:( Anyways, I got him about 3 days ago, and he refuses to eat anything. I am keeping him in a 1.5 gallon tetra water wonders tank with a filter. The very first day when I tried to feed...

    So my Fiance really wants a Salt Water fish tank however we can't really afford the kind he is looking for (a 65+ gallon tank and all the fixings lol) whenever we go to pet stores or anything animal related he checks out the fish. I got him to look at some bettas and he told me about one he...

    So I went into to Petco to get a plant for my tank, passing the bettas as I often do. Not finding a plant I liked, I took a look at the other fish. Twenty minuets before I had to go to work I thought I was just browsing. Upon leaving I bent down to look at all the depressed betta fish in their...

    Kanya, my female betta fish, passed away this morning. I buried her next to the pond across the street from my parent's house. I knew she wasn't going to be around much longer. She was having some strange medical problems over the past couple of months that never went away, despite...

    I have a female and male Betta in a 2.5 gallon tank with a divider. My female bloated up I think with eggs. Will she release them on her own or do I need to put them together so he can squeeze them out. Or will she desolve them inside her self. Should I get them into seperate tanks later and...

    Hey, My Betta fish (honestly don't know a lot about them as he was a christmas present) has lost some colour within the last couple of hours. Usually, after a do a water change he makes very large bubble nests but this time its only been small and he hasn't been as happy as usual. I do 100%...
  20. Guinea Pig Discussion
    Hey Everyone, I'm considering adopting / buying (preferably adopting) two guinea pigs. It depends on whether the shelter in my area has guinea pigs or not.. they only really advertise for cats and dogs. This would be the second time for me, I've had 2 in the past, one who lived for 8 years and...
