Aquarium since I was 6. But most of the maintains I did not do myself. Did change when I wash around 15. And I bought a year back a new aquarium 200 liters. And since a month ago I own a second aquarium 60 liters.

Real reason for my join this forum. I may have huge problem with one of my Betta fish. I will stick around after. But since I am still learning I will ask for more than give answers. But who knows.

Other hobbies: They come and go, except aquariums and my dogs

My problem:



I got a Betta since Saturday. And everything was going while until his tail appeared damage. Plants and other fish are doing fine. I got 5 bettas vrouwtjes en 2 algae eater. I test the water and everything is fine. The filter I had was a cheap thing I got with the aquarium. And the flow was just to high and he often "fell" because of it. Since Tuesday I have a new filter. This is one is great and got great reviews.


I have add a so called Cattapa leaf to the aquarium. Thinking of adding salt, should I? or meds.

Also:
5 females and 1 male betta. And females are smaller than the males. The tank is 60liter so that should be around the 15/16 gallons(I used a converter). I guess is 50x30x40cm. I clean the tank once a week 20%. And I have a Eheim filter


Water:
No3 = 0
No2 = 0
GH = 16d
KH = 6d
PH = 7.2
CI 2= 0
But what know?


English is not my first language.So sorry for misspellings.




Lighting + moving fish=

The most clear and helpful answer I have gotten yet.(I started a topic on 6 forums, so that says something)

Yes. Betta fish often come with damaged fins because of the stress involved in shipping and poor housing when they reach the local fish shop. Keep the water extra clean and the fins should start to recover.

Also it looks like you are using test strips as there is no test for ammonia. Try to get a liquid test kit just to make sure your readings are good because the strips are not very accurate.

They tank should have stabilised now after a month. So I would expect good readings anyway. But that is another idea to check if the fins get worse.
