  1. Bettas
    I have had my sweet little Crown Tail Betta, Dante, for several months now. He's my best buddy, and my favorite fish out of my 4 tanks. I kept him in a 1 1/2 gallon tank, with a small heater and a small aquatic fern. no filter. and he loved it. He was doing great. About a week ago I...
  2. Goldfish, Koi, and Ponds
    long story short I was stuck with a comet goldfish and I wanted to get it some friends( 2 fantails), after about 3 days one fantail was acting weird and getting bullied by the comet so I moved the comet to a 2 litter bottle with completely new water(that I declorinated).

Yesterday we went to Petsmart and they had the Neon Tetras on sale, so I picked up 5 because I like the little...
  6. Beginner Freshwater
    I came home today and the rest of my fish were dead I want to know for sure that it was the effects of the cycle that killed my 4 zebra danios, or if it was disease, or dodgy pet shop fish, or my filter, or my short attempt at fish food fishless cycling that killed them. Should I start over...
