    Hi I’m new to the aquarium hobby and I wanted to start out with a 10gal tank and I was wondering if the fish I’m getting would do good with each other and how many I should keep in the tank noted it will have two filters one with a 3 stage filter and a regular sponge filter.
    African dwarf frog-1
    Dwarf Gourami-1
    Neon tetras-4
    Bristlenose pleco-1
    Haha I know its alot but I really need help deciding how munch I can actually keep or put in the tank.
    And also which type of substrate is good for live plants?

  6. Animal Lover on November 5, 2019 at 4:31 am

    Hi I’m so sorry once again I’m asking another question but you are the only YouTuber that answers my questions and I’m happy for that I wanted to ask your opinion if the new Fluval spec with the new led is good for a beginner it’s a 5gallon tank I looked at all your videos and even how to cycle a tank I just wanted to know if it would be a good tank to be able to cycle

    Hello, thank you for sharing your videos I find them very interesting and I’ve learned a lot. I have a Betta tank with dividers and they all are doing great. But I have noticed one that seams to spit water out of the top of the water and I have goggled why or is that a good thing? I have a Male’s but this one just keep sitting out water and it sounds like a fountain. If you have time I would love to find out why he’s doing that? They all have created bubble nests. And it’s not food he’s spitting out it water. If you have an answer I would be grateful to so kind if answer. Please and Thank you!

  9. Family FishKeeper on November 5, 2019 at 4:34 am

    Will that size of the LED light that you used in the video fine for a 10 gallon ?Or do you suggest to buy a better size for the 10 gallon tank ?

  10. Carrøtcake on November 5, 2019 at 4:35 am

    I’m sorry if you’ve answered this, but what was the name of that larger heater. I have a 10 gallon

  11. Kai on November 5, 2019 at 4:35 am

    Thank you! People keep telling me I should not have many plants in my Betta tank, but I trust you more 🙂

  12. General Patzer on November 5, 2019 at 4:38 am

  16. disneyworks geek on November 5, 2019 at 4:43 am

    I’m thinking of getting a betta fish now that I’m mature and old enough to understand everything. This series is the best on Youtube. Wonderful info and help. I’m so glad I found this BEFORE I dove into the hobby (pun intended). Thank you so much!

  17. Rizwan Anjum on November 5, 2019 at 4:43 am

  22. LizDoodles on November 5, 2019 at 4:50 am

  23. fish are life ! on November 5, 2019 at 4:54 am

    Can u answer a question

  24. gerardo carrillo on November 5, 2019 at 4:54 am

    What type of light do you use for live plants

  25. Stacie Gibbins on November 5, 2019 at 4:54 am

    If you use betta water do you still need to condition the water?

  26. izadine on November 5, 2019 at 4:55 am

    Regarding inner filter, I have used the Eheim inner pick up filter 45 which is for small tanks up to 50 l if I remember right. I used it in a 32 L tanke and it is very mild and you can change the flow and the direction. Before that I used an even smaller inner filter but it had too low flow for the circulation of the water.

  27. Narelle on November 5, 2019 at 4:56 am

    can you please do a video about under ground filters if you can

  28. Don’t read my profile Picture on November 5, 2019 at 4:57 am

  33. Andrew Kan on November 5, 2019 at 5:08 am

    You’ve been a lifesaver for me and my Betta! Thank you so much 🙂

  34. Celine S-Y on November 5, 2019 at 5:10 am

    Hi, I’m new to fishkeeping and I wanted to create a natural environment for my betta do I decided to use Seachem Flourite as a substrate, in order to plant it. I found out that it was a clay based substrate so the water gets awfully cloudy when the substrate is even lightly disturbed. I was wondering if you were familiar with Flourite and if you could pass along some tips. Thanks

  35. Aditya Hande on November 5, 2019 at 5:10 am

    Hello , I need some help with the filter flow and even with the filter running time. I recently bought a tank and I’m cycling it and noticed some things.
    I have top filter running on my tank the filtered water flow is calm but the oxygen mixer inbuilt in the filter pump has a greater flow. How can I control the flow ?
    How often do I need to keep the filter running?
    And what should be the water change interval ?

  36. Anandu AS on November 5, 2019 at 5:11 am

    can i use a2.5gallon cylindricaltank pls reply

  37. Blu on November 5, 2019 at 5:13 am

    Do you have video on how to take care of a planted tank

  38. Margaret Brown on November 5, 2019 at 5:14 am

    I really like your system for Betta tanks and I’m wondering if you can use it for a different shaped tank? For instance, a half-moon 5 gal. or something else even.
    I have watched your series and am now looking forward to starting a tank of my own with all of your advise. I never realized a Betta needed this much care and am really upset that my own fish is only in a 1 gal tank. I would’ve sent an email but you wished for people to send one if it only had questions related to shipping/ect. Sorry for this long comment…
    But thank you for taking time to do all of these videos and I hope to be in touch with you again.

  39. Cam Breezy on November 5, 2019 at 5:14 am

    Hi my name is Cameron brown and I have a Vetail Betta fish I have a 1.5 gallon and a wishper flitter what is the best food and thermometer

  40. HeruikPlaysYT on November 5, 2019 at 5:14 am

    I live in a tropical country. Do i need a heater?

  41. Wilderness Bath Crafts on November 5, 2019 at 5:15 am

    Loved this video! And the heater unfortunately is essential here in Scotland lol, the temps range from 28 degrees C to -14 degrees C where I am but it’s the altitude mostly

  42. Magnus Vinter on November 5, 2019 at 5:15 am

    just a little tip do not keep enything with a pointy/sharp edge if you want the betta fish’s fins to look nice

  43. Charloot on November 5, 2019 at 5:15 am

    I always thought a sponge filter would tear Betta fins?

  44. TOM BEARDSLEE on November 5, 2019 at 5:17 am

    I have a tetra heater in my 5 gallon tank but it keeps my tank at a constant 77.4 degrees is this a problem and if so, what can I do to solve this problem?

  45. Zach Broughton on November 5, 2019 at 5:18 am

    Just curious, if I have a reverse osmosis system already set up for water, do I still need to get a water treatment kit?

  46. Corrie 97 on November 5, 2019 at 5:19 am

    So if I get a 10 gallon and split it which sponge filter size would I need on both sides?

  47. prince moonstone on November 5, 2019 at 5:19 am

    what filter is good for a 20 gallon?

  48. Twister Studios on November 5, 2019 at 5:20 am

    Question: if you use Stability, how long would you need to wait for your tank to cycle? Would you need to wait at all?
