    Help me not kill my GF’s betta

    Hi guys. Rather than searching around for hours and end up not knowing any better, I was wondering if anyone could give me an idea as to what’s going on around the cheek area. The flow is a little high so I’ve turned it down after I noticed but if someone could please check the picture, I would...

    Filters for a low tech Betta cube

    Hi Folks, I'm putting together a 40cm Cube (60L total) which will house a Betta. I'm intending to keep filtration slow and gentle to keep the Betta happy, so will be using a sponge filter. I've not used a sponge filter before so this is an exciting new venture. My question is: will one be...

    Betta sick (fin rot?)

    Our Betta, Laslow, has fin rot (maybe?) that we don’t seem to be able to get rid of. Some context: he usually lives in a 55L tank. He lived in there alone for a while, with a bonsai tree, sand on the bottom, and 4 moss balls. Heater and filter, water temp around 26 degrees. We do regular water...

    Hi from Scotland!

    Hello! Hubby and I have just moved north of the border. We've bought a lovely new place and I'm excited to say I have space for fish keeping again! Reading through some of the threads, though, it seems like things have moved on since I last had a tank (ten years ago) - last time I cycled a...

    Betta Get Sorted

    Just shy of two years ago I bought an Aqua One Aspire 22 tank from P@H when it was on offer with the intention of creating a planted tank for a Betta. At £55 for a tank, lid, LED, heater and filter it was too good a deal to turn down. The filter is terrible and has gone in the spare parts...

    Suitable for a betta?

    I have this nano tank 36*36 which had a betta splenden. Unfortunately he passed away a few days ago. I could replace the fish but the thing is that I am not convinced that the tank is fully adapted for a betta. Check the video and let me know what changes you would do to make the tank more betta...

    Rivers Edge - ADA 45P - planted and filled

    Japanese Bonsai Garden - Learning Curve

I've been keeping fish for years, marine and tropical on and off, so I'm pretty versed with...
