The other day, someone asked me what the best species was for a beginning aquarist. My answer? Cherry shrimp, of course! You won’t need a large tank, specific water values or any fancy equipment. In most cases, you won’t even need a heater!

Hey, you ask and I deliver, right? There have been many requests for an article on wild Bettas so it was definitely time to publish one and put these underrepresented species in the spotlight.
So what did I do? Naturally, I hired Tumblr’s resident wild Betta expert @iantojonesthebetta and we created an article that details 9 of our favorite wild Bettas, including basic care info.
You can now read all about wild Bettas on Aquariadise here. 🐟
Photos were supplied by some of fishblr’s wild Betta keepers: thank you @elemental-kiss@blackwaterbubbles (including the photo above) @finnicky-art. We are still in search of pics of some species, so if you keep them and have photos let me know!
Many aquarists encounter it at some point: fin rot. An annoying fish disease, but luckily definitely not the worst thing that can happen to your fish. In most cases, it should clear right up if you take the right measures!

Did you know fancy goldfish can be kept in ponds just like their common goldfish cousins? You might need to adapt your pond a little, but it’s a great way to give your goldies access to more space – during the summer or year-round.
