Caresheet: Betta | Betta splendens

They’re probably the most popular aquarium fish out there today and I think almost every aquarist has kept them at some point: Betta fish. Unfortunately, with popularity come all sorts of misconceptions about care and it’s no different for this little labyrinth fish. Time to put all those myths to rest! 🐟

New article on Aquariadise: Green hair algae c…

All aquarists have likely dealt with it at some point: the dreaded green hair algae. It takes over your tank, suffocates your plants and turns everything into a green hairy mess. Annoying! Scrubbing is just a temporary solution and algaecides do more harm than good, so how do you get rid of this stuff?!

Aquariadise article: The 8 worst beginner fish

I see it all the time: beginners with tiny tanks who somehow end up with fish that are difficult to keep and grow massive. All the fish on this list are fascinating and work well in aquariums, but you might want to avoid them if you’re just getting started…

Greetings! I have kept tanks (mostly freshwater set-ups) in the past for 11 years, but due to college and such I have not been in the hobby for some time. I'm still doing research, but once I get back into the hobby, what would you recommend for a good set-up to get back into the swing of things? And, after that, and with more research (some of which I am doing now), what would be a good saltwarter FO system to start with?

Hi!! Unfortunately I’ve done very little with freshwater set ups, so I’m not really the person to ask haha. @my-splendid-splendens or @justnoodlefishthings seem to have experience with them?

As for a fish only salt tank: I don’t know what kind of space or size preference you have, but I think a 20-30 gallon all-in-one tank (biocubes are p nice) would be good! If you have sand and live rock you could get a goby or a goby/shrimp pair, which are a personal fav. A clown pair could be housed with them. You could also look at small damsels, but they are aggressive and would limit what other fish you could keep. And mollies! Many people aren’t aware that they can live in full salt, but they’re peaceful and great for taking care of green hair algae!

Caresheet: Dwarf Puffer | Carinotetraodon trav…

Looking for a fish that’s a little different than most community species? Dwarf puffers are intelligent, fun to keep and do well in smaller tanks of 10 gallons (38L) and up. 🐟

A little impression of my invert only tank! If you’re wondering why it’s messy, crayfish love to uproot dwarf hairgrass and shrimp/snails love algae so I leave that on some of the panels. 😊🦐🐌
