My betta died, I didn't even have him for two weeks. I'm really bummed, because I tried really hard to keep him alive. I think it was a combination if ich and ammonia poisoning. I didn't see the ich until yesterday and I didn't know what to do about it besides go and get some medicine and do water changes. He had a warranty that ends today, so I'm going to go and get a tank with a filter and a replacement betta. I'm just so sad my sister is helping cheer me up

Thanks, I got a bigger tank for him so I hope he makes it

I found some duckweed maybe I'll put it in the old bowl just to see how it lasts

Sorry to hear about your Betta. It is sad to lose a fish. The tank will be a big help to keep him properly, and well.

Just watching the fish a little and keep fattening up the baby fish I got last week. They are looking better.

Watched the Scarlet Badis and saw that they were eating. They are hunting / predators!!! Watching them made me realize how fast they could wipe out a tank of baby shrimp They would not work well in a shrimp tank if you wanted to raise shrimp.

Just got the news that all of my RCS died, I think it might be because the top of the vase is tapered and they couldn't get enough oxygen. I'm really annoyed because I spent over $30 and lots of time on the shrimp and they all died.

I picked up a 1 gallon bowl for my sister's betta. It's better than what she has at the moment (a half-gallon bowl) but still not ideal.

Yesterday I set up my cousin's 3 gallon tank (with a filter) for her birthday and she loves it, she has a female betta in it who she named Sapphire.

My betta doesn't have a name yet, but he is in a 2.5 gallon tank with a filter. He is smaller than my other betta, but I think he is going to grow. Here is a picture of him, he was swimming out of the hole in the castle as I took the picture.

Cloudy water in the 30g, the first noticeable sign that anything is going on in there! Part of my order from That Fish Place arrived yesterday, but my new testing kit is on back-order. It's only serving to remind me why I dislike testing with the dip-strips so much...
