I was just interested to hear opinions and personal experience of whether bettas like having a densely planted/decorated tank or if they enjoy more open space to roam.
don't think its a crack just a scratch.
do the snails eat cuttlebone or does it leach calcium or something into the water?
and some more. P.S am i right the snails are golden apples?
some of the pics aren't great, but until i get a better camera it will have to do. enjoy!:22:
yes so true, here in australia some of the treatment given to bettas in shops is terrible.
I mean i can sort of understand needing to keep the bettas in smaller areas for sale/space, but i saw a...
after my said news of my old betta passing from what i think was old age,
new life has begun!

i have heard their average lifespan is around 2 years and i had had him for a little over a year, and he was fully grown when i bought him, so i can't actually tell how old he was.
ah well, jsut...
well my good ol betta passed away last night very suddenly.
he was fine day before last, but yesterday was listless and frequently(more than usual) sucking air from the surface.

i have had my filter media for over 6 months occasionally rinsing the media in tank water and everything is fine for me.
if you throw old media and chuck in a new one the bacteria has to regrow....
wouldnt that make the medicine less effective?
and it does have a HOB filter with 250l/minute flow rate and supposedly can be used for aquariums over 10 gallon.
if im dosing with meds, should i be stopping WC's???
i think my tap ph has jumped up a bit,
looks around 7.4-7.6
what can be done to drop that down a bit?
p.s. Betta is still going half-decent. Hiding in his cave but will swim out...
im just slightly worried there may be a additive that may be harmful.
i have used it before and it seems to be fine though.
I hear of feeding finely chopped garlic to fish.
It doesn't have to be fresh garlic does it? can it be diced garlic in a jar?
if so does soaking pellets/granules etc in some of teh diced...
Just a run through of the last couple of days,
I noticed my males fins, specifically top/dorsal? fin have deteriorated and then he was a bit lame hiding in his cave for long periods...

im not sure if this would work, but maybe squeezing together 1 small bit of pea with a small bit of garlic, so it becomes more appetising perhaps?
if the fish take it, i guess it could work as a...
and that males can't stay together:hmm3grin2orange:
nice fish u got there
Just had a look at dwarf gouramis on the net,
it says they can be sorta nippy sometimes to other fish and they can be quite sensitive to water conditions.
hmm such a challenge working out what...
what would be a suggestion for a fry-controller in a 10 gal?

although many here would condemn this, you can have 1 male betta in a fairly large bowl, without heating or filter if the room temperature is suitable enough and you are vigilant to change the water...
I shall keep an eye out for spotted danio,
although I don't think they are very common in Australia

a sponge filter or external filter really shouldnt make any noise at your work if thats what you are worried about.
and I seriously say no to the small tank, though to give you a rough comparison...
