  2. i was thinking that TOO! But it would have to be water (ie:rust proof) & aquarium safe.

    Galvinized metal should work, same as horse water troughs. I'm just a cynic, after seeing a metal slotted spoons at walmart for 5 bucks marketed as a cat litter scoop at a pet store for twice as much.

    just like the turkey basters $2-$4 disguised as beta bowl cleaners $12 :teehee


  3. Hi Guys blackstar is doing much better and is much more active i moved him over to the bigger tank with the cory cat but he is still not able to stay near the bottom with his fav plant. Could he be perm affected by his SBD ? I did give him a floating plant that he loves to swim around and I always find him in it. My daughter did not want gravel so she left it bare bottom will this be ok for the beta and cory?

  5. Thx for your help guys I'm goning to go ahead and get her a 10 gallon for the betta and Cory. Seen one at Walmart for $12 I have a old wisper and ill grap some cycled media from my Goldie's tank should I wait to move him till he is better and just move the Cory? The 2.5 does have a small filter which I did use cycled filter padding in. Blackstar is more active today but still unable to stay down


  6. Bettas can get swim bladder issues, too- have you tried feeding him brine shrimp or peas? How much of the food do you feed, each time? Do you give him a "fast day" weekly? I'd fast for 3 days, then feed peas or brine shrimp in small amounts for 2-3 days after.

    My daughter has been feeding him so I'm not sure how much flakes she has been giving him i know i see a lot of waste at the bottom of the tank she says she puts extra for the cory cat i told her that even the cory cat does not need that much extra food i do give brine shrimp few times a week but not yet this week i will try to give him some peas if i fast him will the cory cat be ok fasting or do i need to drop a sinking pellet or two in i have moved him into the kitchen so i can watch him now i know i need to keep a closer eye on her feeding him but i think she will do much better now she is really scared he will die!!

  8. Hi All

    I have been feeding my GF a gel food i made myself it has

    garlic

    peas

    spinach

    salmon

    greenbeans

    pumpkin

    tablespoon of goldfish flakes and goldfish pellets

    my kiddos really like it and I feed it to them everyday they also get some frozen stuff about 2-3x per week of bloodworms, brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, and leftovers of marine cuisine from my salt tank. A few times a month i will give them fruit like fresh straberries, banannas, orange slices and once a week usually i give them spinach or brocolli on the veggie clip.

    is this a good diet for them for the long run? and is my gel food ok for there staple food?

    thx

    P.S. gave my clownfish a taste of my gel food and the female who is a picky eater gobbled it up :D
