  1. Sorry for such the late response. He's doing much better. The epsom salt helped out a lot. No longer bloated looking That's great news! Could we have a updated picture? I don't think I can get one at the moment. We are going to be moving this weekend and it's kinda hard to get to the tank right now with boxes everywhere. School also starts next week. I'll see what I can do. I also hope to change up the tank when we move.

  3. Sorry for late reply. I didn't have time to earlier. I will keep fasting until morning. I have not seen much poop. Is there anything I can give that is basically the equivalent of peas to goldfish?
  4. Hes looking less bloated then yesterday for sure. He also built a nice bubble nest. I think he's going to be ok. I haven't fed him yet and will probably feed him 3 pellets tonight.
  5. I'd say around 5? They always eat them super fast but I resist feeding more because idk exactly how much they should have Is it the hikari betta bio-gold? I think those pellets are really small, but I haven't used them myself so I'm not sure how they compare to others. The packaging recommends 5-10 twice a day. When you start feeding again you may want to try starting him off with a smaller amount and/or spread the pellets out over 3-4 meals instead of 1-2. Yea those r the pellets and they r super tiny. I guess we will see tomorrow if it's an overfeeding issue or not.

  8. Tank Parameters: pH:7.5 Ammonia:0ppm Nitrate:10ppm Nitrite:0ppm This fish lives in a 10 gallon divided tank. I've had him since February. His behaviour seems to be normal. Maybe resting a bit more than usual but he has always been a bit lazier than my other betta. His only real symtom is the bump
  9. I went to check on my bettas and found one of them sitting near the top. I took a closer look and saw that he looked super bloated. My other betta looks pretty much fine though. So I'm guessing it might be parasites?? I will get my parameters up, I just wanted to get this thread started. I will also try to get a picture
  10. We are moving this weekend and I'm quite worried about moving with my fish. Luckily we are literally just moving down the street, but it's complicated because the weekend we are moving me and my friends are going to a music festival. I have a big tub I got to put my fish in, but they would have to sit in there for 2 days while the tank gets moved and set up and I'm scared about having high ammonia since they are both large. I honestly just don't trust my family with taking care of my fish and need some advice on what to do. I will be able to put my aquaclear 110 on the bin but not my canister filter. How can I keep the media in the canister alive? Should I fast my fish a few days before the weekend to make sure ammonia stays down? My tank is 75 gallons and non planted with 2 goldfish. I also have a 10 gallon divided non planted betta tank, how should I prepare them?
  11. Hmm my name is Kayla too. I would love to have a huge pond like this someday!! Living in Western Canada I'd be afraid about the winters though. Very nice pond and beautiful fish!
  12. Thanks everyone! At least these guys slow down once in a while for me to able to get decent pictures (unlike some other fish). Yes hard water is such a pain. I feel like I'm always trying to scrape it off something. I heard it can benefit your fish with all the extra minerals though.
