Aquarium Monsters are Hard to Keep

Thread: Kinda sad today because I learned a hard lesson. All I can say is research every fish before you buy. Fish stores lie. I have two beautiful monsters in my tank that I love but can’t house permanently. Wth is wrong with store’s so so wrong. Freshwater sharks catfish, shouldn’t be sold as pets ever. Crazy I even said I only have 30g tank they look very active are you sure they will be OK? Reply thirty is perfect. jerk’s. I know I feel the same way because when I was just starting out keeping fish I went to a local fish store and askfor a bottom feeder and they …

Safe for Betta in With my Pet Turtle or No?

I’ve been thinking about putting my beta fish in to the aquarium with my pet turtle and I’m wondering if it is safe or not. I have read some information online regarding that turtles don’t necessarily go after certain fish because they look a weird color to them if they’re not used to it. Beta fish is a male species and he has very vibrant colors and I don’t think my turtle would even touch him because of his weird colors. I need some personal opinions from people that may have done this or maybe they just can give me some guided information thank you. Anonymous replied: I have had …

Have a Female and Male Betta in Same Tank?

I have one Betta fish that is a male and he seems totally fine and happy. I have this weird hair up my butt to get him a friend that he can play with. Would he play with a female pretty well? Is this allowed or would breeding get in the way with this? Community Shares FishGuy1891: I would highly advise you not to do this just because the male is so aggressive that it cannot be schooled with any fish. I would not advise any beginner to put a mail beta in a tank with any other fish may be an experienced fish hobbyist could do this but not …

How Does Walmart Treat Their Betta Fish?

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkP9fyd4sog[/youtube] Respond: Christy Z. I do know that Walmart sells beta fish and I bought a couple of them and have good luck with it but the way that they take care of them I don’t necessarily agree with. Someone told me that when you stack the fish like that up on each other that you’re blocking the actual breathing holes inside of the small containers for the fish so it’s not really morally correct. If you’re taking away oxygen from the fish he would think that that would be killing it but who knows maybe there’s enough oxygen in there for very long time inside of that small aquarium …
