    Hi, I currently have a betta fish in a 3 gallon tank. However, a friend of mine gave me his tank in hurry since he was moving and couldn't bring it along. We looked around for pet stores and friends who would take the fish and didn't find anyone. He has had them for about a year. His tank is...

    My Dad and I have always wanted one,and my Dad has LOTS of experience with freshwater fish. He once had 2 5-gallon tanks,3 10-gallon tanks,3 50-gallon tanks,and 2 100-gallon tanks. But they were all freshwater. So we were wondering about how much the initial up-front cost of the...

    Today I finally bought 2 gerbils! They're both males. The black and white one is named Moe and the grayish brown one is Louie. In the pet store, I was looking for a small waterbottle for my 10 gallon tank, but the small ones were sold out, so I ended up buying a longer one. I set up their tank...

    I was wondering what plants would do well with my goldfish? I had java fern and and Anubias but they were quickly shredded.
  5. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    How many gerbils (and what genders)? I have fairly extensive knowledge of gerbil husbandry (after researching for a year), and for a while now I've been wanting to keep some. The space I have for them is a 2ft x 2ft x 2ft hutch-like enclosure, part of something I'm building. In volume, this...

    I acquired another Beta LOL. I was at the fish store and I saw this BEAUTIFUL red beta <3 I can never find red betas here and so I had to have him. Tank is a 2.5 gallon Explorer Aquarium. I have one Java fern currently in the tank and I am going tomorrow to get a moss ball.

    When using Melafix, should I put the dosage into my regular tank, or set up a quarantine tank for the afflicted fish? If I do need a quarantine tank, how long should the fish remain inside? :confused:

    I purchased a 40 gallon tank off of Craigslist for $28 dollars, and my assumption was that it was just the tank. Well, I got to this woman's house to pick it up and she helps me carry it outside and then bring out a ten gallon tank with 2 large goldfish and then proceeded to tell me the fish...

    Hello, Since I decided to set up my 5 gallon as a betta tank. I was wondering if I could possibly turn the 3 gallon into a ghost shrimp tank? I have since removed one of the plants into my high light planted tank and I would also like some ideas on some low light plants to put in there. Also...

    I'm getting my 6-year-old brother a 30 US Gallon tank soon as a late birthday present. My mum says no more rodents, he's scared of snakes, and he doesn't want newts or frogs, so we've decided on fish :) I will be doing the main care-taking. What fish - that would do well in this size tank, of...

    Does anyone remember me? I haven't been on my favourite pet site in foooorever (hard times, what with people dieing, school, thieves at work, etc.). I'll put up a thread on the newly named Necho's beautiful plumage as well as update's on Hamm, Skooma and Sugar but that's for later. Right now...

    I just got a 110 gallon for the koi for actually a pretty good deal. It was supposed to come with a filter and stand, but the guy was stupid and forgot the filter. The stand looks horrible, its just thin strips of metal that is really really really rusted out. I don't feel comfortable putting...
