My bettas are very 'people friendly'. When I have to move one for whatever reason, I just scoop it out with my hand.

If these are 'red clawed crabs' then they are most certainly not fully aquatic.

It will be pretty good for killing Bettas slowly I suspect.
Bettas need access to surface air. They don't extract oxygen from water like most fish.
At only 1/2 gallon, I would also say stick to a...
If you want multiple bettas in one tank there are a few things you can do to increase your chances of success:
1. Lots of tank space, much bigger is much better.
2. Lots of things breaking up...
I have never cleaned under the UGF. I don't have any idea how I would go about doing that.
The tank is a 37 gallon and there is a section that is around 12" by 8" which is out of the water. I haven't seen them behave violently towards each other before. They all had seperate areas that...
I had a crab go bad earlier today and that really woke up the planaria. I don't have billions after all. It would seem that I have grossly under estimated my problem.
I can vacuum but I will...
I should point out that the green chunks all over him (her?) is just duckweed.
This morning I was looking in my invertebrate tank pondering my planaria problem when my red claw crab suddenly flew by. I have never seen it move so fast and it looked like it was on fire. If this...
I stopped encouraging them and they seem to have simmered down on their own.
They still jump a little but it's just them trying to be first to the pellet and since they don't come with brakes, they...
A while back I spotted some planaria in my shrimp/ crab tank and didn't concern myself about it. Today I was absolutely disgusted by the billions of planaria that I now have.
What can I do to...
My bettas eat pond snails. I haven't actually seen it happen but I get occasional explosions of baby snails and I never see grown snails in the betta tank. I guess there must be a couple in there...

I just googled 'penn plax' and saw their catalogue. The ships you posted are most certainly better than penn plax.
For me, I want to try to create a photo-realistic shipwreck but I am having trouble...

Not really. It looks like a typical LFS ornament. Better than most to be sure, but still it looks like a big chunky blob of resin to my eyes. I like my 'model ship' better. It's the small details I...

The red LED's do look pretty cool but the ships look too much like molded plastic tank ornaments for my liking.
I want to either sink this boat:...

Please post those clips if you can find them. I have a large realistic ship model but I just can't quite decide how to 'shipwreck' it. It would sure make things a lot easier for me if I could see...
My red clawed crabs spend close to half of their time out of the water. A friend of mine keeps his crabs without access to dry land and they don't seem to last more than a month or so. My crabs have...

I saw a picture that inspired me a little for a large tank ornament and I am wondering what sort of glue would be most appropriate. I want to glue popsicle stick sized pieces of wood together and I...
I use a small kitchen strainer to scoop them out of a bucket on my deck. Then I feed them to my bettas. I got lucky with the strainer size because the smallest larvae fit through it and only the old...
I have a tank with cherry shrimp and red claw crabs and I am always interested in increasing my choices on what to feed my menagerie.
A few things I have fed them include:
Algae wafers-shrimps love...

It varies very much. Basically, the tail of the female shrimp will be full of eggs. Could be as many as 30 or even more. The don't lay their eggs though. The female will carry them until they leave...

The tank is a 29 gallon and I am using the sun for lighting. The tank sits in a window on the north side of my house and is mostly planted with an unidentified emersed plant from my local LFS....

I have a betta sorority in a heavily planted tank and it has a nasty cladophora problem.
I have been manually pulling it out but everytime I do, I damage the plants a little bit...
I always thought that the side panes were supposed to sit on top of the bottom piece?
06-07-2012, 01:29 PM
This makes no sense to me either. Why would someone spend the time trying to catch the fish and relocate it to feed it when you could just feed it in the big tank? I don't think this fish was moved...
