1. is she spending a lot of time near the surface? Is she acting tired/sad? Is she breathing heavily?

  2. omg there's nothing cuter than a baby betta in a cup!

  3. i could be wrong but just by the looks of it this could be cory eggs

  4. 5 gallons is okay for now. I would say you could keep them for between 1 and 2 weeks with regular water changes

  5. I like #1! Plakats (short finned bettas) are much healthier too

  6. It depends on the situation...did they have this after a while or are they born this way? I don't think it's bloating.

  7. it could be. I remember seeing a couple young fry like this but they passed before getting bigger. It looked almost as if the yolk sack was never fully absorbed.

  8. I've found this one little cory fry with a really big, clear belly. Any ideas on what this could be? The rest look normal

  9. I’m just assuming that’s how old he is (I know usually when you buy them as an adult they’re about a year old). But I’ll definitely try doing some water changes and see if that does anything for him. It’s just bizarre because he doesn’t have anything VISIBLE that I could think to treat.

  10. bettas can be a bit weird with disease where they act strange but don't show any signs. Eventually a symptom might come up

  11. thanks! He looks okay, so I would recommend continuing frequent water changes and see where that takes you. If anything changes be sure to update me

  12. husbandry wise, I would say the care is good. Just make sure you have a lid that covers the top completely.

  13. I'm thinking about getting something to put around the tank so it will help with reflection unless there is a better way I don't know about. I might get a moss plant too. My biggest regret has been getting snails though. They dirty up the tank so much I have to change like 90% of the water every week or so.

  14. you can try sticking some blanched veggies in there and waiting a couple of hours. The snails will usually swarm it making them super easy to remove

  15. do you have any live plants, snails, shrimp, or other fish in there?

  16. Does anyone know what these little things could be? (video in imgur link) I was thinking copepods but I know those are harmless and I discovered fin rot on my boy, Tundra, yesterday. If they are harmless the fin rot could be unrelated but I'm not sure.

  17. fin rot would be unrelated to those dots.

  18. I'm going to get him into a hospital tank if I notice no improvement by tomorrow. I will continue with the water changes. Thank you for your kind suggestions.

  19. no problem! Make sure to keep me updated!

  20. indie shop 1/2 are both good. I would compare quality of the fish as well before making a decision.

  21. 5-10 gallons. Regardless it would be enough for a betta! Just make sure to get a lid since they're jumpers

  22. I mentioned to my co teacher that a beta fish really should be in a bigger tank and she was like “oh we have a bigger one in the basement.” So I dig through the basement and find this beautiful tank! It was a bit grimy so I cleaned it, cleaned the gravel that was with it, cleaned the tank decorations. We have a spider grass plant that we put a strand of in (my other co teacher keeps fish at home and has kept bettas in the past so that was on her suggestion. I plan on getting more plants. I wanted a snail but it’s against regulation (we have a number of high needs kids in the class who could get sick if they touched it).

  23. That is by far the most beautiful betta I've ever seen

  24. you can avoid a feeding if you're worried - it can actually be beneficial. Since he isn't bloated I wouldn't be worried

  25. I would recommend adding more plants! Anubias nana can be glued onto the wood, with some other big stem in the back. Limnophila sessiliflora could work. Hygrophila siamensis '53b', pogostemon, heteranthera zosterifolia, rotala, water wisteria and water sprite are all stems good too.

  26. honestly I would empty most of the tank water, move the betta and shrimp into two little containers and move the tank. The plants will be fine but I don't think the shrimp will be if you don't separate them

  27. looks great just make sure to raise the water level and get a lid

  28. in my experience it takes a bit of time to be able to sex a new betta, especially if it's a juvenile

  29. If possible, I would recommend avoiding long-finned, dragonscale, and koi bettas. Short-finned bettas (aka plakats) are hardier, tend to live longer lives, live healthier lives, and are less prone to disease. Koi bettas are prone to tumors and dragonscale bettas are likely to go blind.

  30. There's a 50/50 chance your betta will be fine with tankmates. Luckily though, there are things you can do to minimize the chance of an aggressive betta.

  31. they're going to be perfectly fine in there for a week. To prevent jumps you can either put some mesh over the boxes or tape a bit of saran/cling wrap w/holes as a temporary lid
