  1. Thank you sooo much for the info! Is there a way to judge a bettas personality while its still in the store? I'd imagine it would be kind of difficult to tell with them being unhappy in a cup :-( Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Tapatalk 2
  2. Sooo, I have been thinking about getting some bettas for a long time now... I just recently decided to go ahead and give it a try ! I love how flowy their tails are and I love how unique their personalities are.I have never kept bettas before so I'm wondering what all I would need for them to have a happy life with me . So, my first question would be about what kind of filtration I would need for a 10 gallon betta tank? My plan was to have two bettas separated by a tank separator. I was going to have it heavily planted so they couldn't see each other to fight. Would it be ok to keep two males separated like that or would a male and female be better? Also, can they eat repashy soilent green or do they need a specific diet? Do I need a water heater to keep the tank at a stable temp? Also, is there a specific PH they prefer? Oh and would they pick on a ramshorn snail? There are so many things I need to learn, I just want to get my facts now so I don't have to learn from my mistakes ! Thanks everyone! I'm super excited for this new project!
  3. Oh wow! They're gorgeous! I want your Benjen . What do you feed those babies!?
  4. Oh gosh, he's adorable! Congrats on the job interview and the new baby!

  9. I'd have to say the streaking for my moor has been noticeable for about a week now, the ryu is a little tougher to tell since she's had permanent streaking for awhile (alex had had me on tons of medicines, but it never seems to go away permanently) and LT doesn't seem to have any issues. Edit: The streaking on the moor's tail isn't too bad, its just at a few spots on the end of her tail
  10. Not too bad. They tend to hover between 10ppm (tap and after a big WC) and about 20. The highest it has gotten was about 40ppm around last week. I was so busy with school and my friend in labor, my fishies kind of took a back seat .
  11. Its totally fine! Thanks for the speedy response! During the summer months the water gets pretty warm... Usually about this temp, with the occasional spikes up to about 82F. In the evening the water usually drops to about 75F. The temp in the cooler months can drop down to about 60F. I have two air curtains, A 35" and an 8": http://www.ebay.com/itm/350693658728?hlp=false&var= With that being said, should I get a couple more? My tank has been cycled for over a year now with one HOB and an Ehiem canister filter . I should have been more specific on the stress remark, sorry lol. I've been seeing a little bit of red streaking in my Ryukin and some darker spots on the tail of my moor (granted she's black so it's a little harder to tell). Other than that, everyone seems to be in good spirits.
  12. Hello everyone! I know this has been a talked about topic, but I figured I'd start a new thread... My issue is that my tank water likes to sit about 78F-80F during the days. I've started noticing some stress marks on my two older goldfish's tails... Is this temp too hot for them? If so, what can I do to either cool it or take some of the stress off of them? Thanks all P.S. I hope I put this in the right place...
  13. Oh my gosh... I just saw this post (havent been on in awhile). I'm so sorry this happened to you and Elvis. This thread had me in tears... Your such an amazing mamma Chelsea! Your doing everything that you can and refusing to throw in the towel. I think that motivation and energy is really helping Elvis through this hard time. You two are in my thoughts and I'm praying for a healthy recovery! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Tapatalk 2

  16. Is tank re-sealing super difficult? thanks for the input guys!!
  17. Hi everyone! I found this add on craigslist and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on it? One of my main questions would be more specifically on how to re-seal an aquarium... http://albuquerque.craigslist.org/for/3860639266.html Thanks everyone!!

  22. Hi Alex! Sorry I've been preoccupied with the new term :-. Dexy (moor) is back to 100%! She still is pooping casts and regular poo but she acts fine :-). Klaus (my ryu) is doing better as well! I did the full treatment of the triple sulfa as instructed. He/she is really active and the belly has healed completely! The area around the right eye looks a little swollen still however. I've been keeping an eye on it with no change so far. Thanks a bunch! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Tapatalk 2
