He has a heater (the tank is kept at about 80 degrees Fahrenheit) and a Fluval 106 filter (which, by the way, is never kept on at full power). He's...

    Hey everyone! Today I made some major changes to my 6 gallon planted betta tank, and wanted to show the updates! This tank has been up for almost a year now, and I love it! This is the first time I got up the nerve to split my anubias nana, and I attached one piece to the driftwood. I took...

    Hey everyone, I am getting a new tank (eclipse system 6) for my betta soon and I would like to make it into a natural planted tank with all live plants. Somebody mentioned to me a while back on a thread (sorry I don't remember who it was) that they used the Walstad method for plant tanks. I...

    I've had my female betta fish, Ling-Ling, for almost 2 weeks now. About 5 days ago I thought I saw something on her body, later I noticed it was a white dot, so I went out and bought Quick-Cure, which I treated her with for 3 days (today's the first day of non treatment). Yesterday, I noticed...

    I just bought a beautiful crowntail betta today with a dark blue body and pure yellow fins. He is so cool, but I was wondering what everyone else is keeping their bettas in. Tank sizes, temps, etc. Thanks in advance.

    My dad's new wife had a betta fish, who just recently died, RIP. (she cremated it) Aparently the fish was 5 or 6 years old. Can they live that long? Cuz all the betta fish my brother had lived for a year or 2 then died.

    Hello! Earlier I posted a question about housing a snail with a Betta (in a 3 gal. tank) and got excellent information back. With this information it appears that a shrimp, or like Crustacean, might be the better option. So my three-part question... Do you agree that shrimp are a good...

    I´ve had two bettas before but I kept them in 5 gallon tanks. I haven´t had any for a while but am thinking of getting one soon. I have a 20 gallon tank that is empty at the moment and was wondering if bettas really do get anxious if the tank is too big. I only want a betta and a couple of...
