    Recommended Tank for Betta and Tetras

    I have had Hengeli rasboras with a Betta, They were fine the Betta was the problem. 17 litres is too small for tank mates in my opinion. You need at least 6 of them or they will stress, The more the merrier.

    Been away a while.

    Like the title says I have been away a while. The main reason is, I had a pest controller in and he killed my whole tank. Yes all my fish died. I was so devastated I have no words. Cut a long story short I rebuilt my tank. I now have a beautiful female betta I call Zsa Zsa 5 Kuhil Loaches a Mystery snail and some shrimp, Well the ones the betta don't eat anyway. Here's a few photos. ZsaZsa when I first got her. Same fish a few weeks latter Some of the loaches, I have 5. They live here.

    Help with chewed tail!?

    Is there such a thing as a breeding pair of bettas? From what I understand, You slowly introduce the male and female they do their thing then after you remove the female or they will fight. I may have my facts wrong.

    I will let this photo speak for itself. I wash my hands well in hot water without any soaps or anything first.

    Meet Yobbo.

    Ummm. After this morning I would say no, The little catfish are fine, The snails are fine, the shrimp a fine, He killed one of the Platys, and was attacking the others, I had to put 1 down because of the damage he caused, This is 1 agro Betta.

    Meet Yobbo.

    Mr Yobbo found that if he stares hard at the glass in the back of the tank he can see another betta, And its time to flare and fight. My solution was to line the inside of the tank with those 3d Styrofoam backgrounds. 3-D Aquarium Background Crevice 14"x14" Yobbo also has a few new tankmates.

    Meet Yobbo.

    Yobbo now has 2 of these cat fish as tank mates. I also counted 5 shrimp in the tank today I threw in a few algee wafers and they found them.

    Teal Marble x Black Dragon PK

    Sorry for the silly novice question. In the first photo that beautiful black male, I notice he has holes in his fins, Is that damage due to mating etc or fin rot or is it normal?

    Charity Project

    A while ago I was asked to look after a fish tank by a local Charity. Here is what I had Tank size. 170 cm Long, 50 High, 45 wide. For a grand total of 383 Litres. 84 Imperial Gallons, 101 Us Gallons. PH. 6.4. Ammonia 0.25 Nitrite 0.0 Nitrate 0.0 30 January 2015 I did a few mods at first. Then scrapped the idea. I took the fish to a local fish shop and started again. Jump forward to today.
