    Hi there, About 3 months ago I got 5 discus that had pure brown color (light brown). After a month 2 of them showed blue/red snakeskin patterns and are still developing that color. However, the other three that are a bit larger have stayed the same color of light brown ever since. I was told...

    Bad week of aquarium related issues for me. New ember tetra dead, flushed filter down toilet and now Betta issues. For the past 4 days one of my Bettas has stopped eating and sits on the bottom of the tank all day. I've had him for a month and he was energetic and curious up until this week...

    Hi, Just in the last few days my male betta's appetite has decreased to the point that he won't eat now. He's also spending all of his time either resting or occasionally thrashing around wildly. He appears physically healthy although starting today I thought he looked bloated. I can assure you...

    I'm assuming it is a metallic blue s.d. betta... if someone knows better, please let me know! This is our one fish... that's an anubias in the foreground (our one plant) in a 3.3G plastic tank. He's moving to a Fluval Ebi as soon as the newly siliconed foam backdrop cures :) Shooting solution...

    I wasn't going to keep this tank, but changed my mind and decided to make it a betta tank. Moved some media from my ebi to cycle it faster. It's a 4 gallon Eheim Aquastyle tank. It's almost exactly like the Fluval Flora and Ebi, but with a better filter and different light. Flora Vallisneria...

    Hello, So after several long conversations with Morainy and stalking various threads at different forums I fell in love with the new Fluval Ebi tank and had to have one. I have never had a tank larger than 5 gallons because of a lack of room. The cube shape and small size was perfect for...

    So, recently I moved to a small town here in BC and we knew that in storms the town lost power often, but now we're hearing that in winter theres a huge possibility we'll lose power for 12 hours or more, which is a big problem now that winters coming. Temperatures are dropping, and wind and snow...

    Hi, I'm moving on thursday to another province. We can only bring what can fit in our truck. I have about 20 teeny tiny baby golden mystery snails. I would prefer them to go to someone who will grow them out and sell them, rather than feed them to something. $15 includes their vase bamboo...

    I have no idea what is happening to my bettas. My fish are stressing me out! Over the last month or so I started noticing one of Bettas with strange growth/bump on his stomach. At first I thought he was constipated. I watched him closely and he eats well and is fairly active as usual. His...

    In my previous thread I mentioned that my Betta has a broken dorsal fin caused possibly by the filter outflow pushing his fins around. The fin is clearly broken in two places. A few of the rays at the base are broken and a few just above the base are broken as well. He cannot flare his dorsal...

    I have a Betta Barrack Drip System that was designed by Marianne at BCBetta. Great Set-Up for someone that is really getting into Bettas and you won't find this system anywhere. Complete as shown. $400.00. This is a fairly large system so you will need a truck to transport it. System is...

    SYMPTOMS... 1. Rapid fin loss (in a matter of hours) with bloody edges and holes, but no fuzzy patches 2. Hiding a lot. 3. Rapid breathing. My Betta has been battling fin rot or tail biting for over a month since I got him. His fins would start to heal and then a week later it would be frayed...

    I plan on getting one zebra snail for my 3 gallon to combat the algae problem I have. I would like to know the following... 1) If there is not enough algae in the tank can I feed it something else? 2) Is aquarium salt safe for them? 3) What is the ideal temperature? My tank is usually betwee...

    I woke up this morning and noticed that my white betta I got off aquabid a few weeks ago has finrot again! He was healing so nicely too. Did a water change. Upped the heat and added salt to prevent further damage to the fin. I just looked at him carefully again and now I see a white bubble...

    I have an deep admiration for white Bettas. When I saw this Opaque Platinum on Aquabid I just had to have him :eek:. Unfortunately my experience with online Bettas hasn't been good. This will be the last time I buy Bettas online. Halfmoons simply don't ship well because of their delicate...

    By accident I broke the floating thermometer in the water while doing a water change. Luckily it was only the bottom part and I managed to remove the glass pieces and the actual thermometer is still intact, but some of the black balls got into the gravel. What are the black balls made of and...

    One of my younger crowntail bettas has developed cottony white fuzz on multiple ray extensions. Nothing on the body. He eats wells and swims around fine, but the fuzz looks like he swam through some dust bunnies. Any ideas what it could be? Some sort of fungus? Treatment options? Using salt at...

    Sucks what happened to the forum, but this gives me a chance to post pictures of my Bettas in their very own thread. Here goes... Drizzle - My first since taking a 3 year hiatus from fish. Fawkes - I love that he looks like a flame. The fattest of my boys. Gryffin - This is an older...
