It's all around my town and near the river..

Update on my fish: She's getting pale all around, won't even try to eat. She spit the food out when i dropped em near her mouth. After some observation i just realized that she is bigger than the rest of my Bettas, so probably older? I made some research over the net says that some bettas can easily go blind of old age..

Update on my fish: She's dead. my brother said she lay down on a half floating cattapa leaf at first so easy to take breath but then the next thing he know she seems drowned even in the shallow water level..

Sorry that she didn't make it

Her eye looked a lot like the blind eye of my big crowntail male. Due to my ignorance in putting a non water plant in his tank, it died and started rotting. He had a bad episode where he was flicking on everything and damaged one eye.

The good news is that while I have to make sure to put his food on the good side to make sure he sees it in a timely manner, he has been fine since I fixed the problem. But it sounds like there was more going on with your girl.

I put those leaves on 2 my male bettas, the next day i know they made LOTS of bubbles..I tried again on my female bettas, the new female bettas i got 2 days ago show vertical breeding stripe..The other one is active tho..

Is it good to let em' stay too long in the dark cattapa water? One of the male got pretty dark water coz i cut the leave into pieces for him..

It is supposed to be all kinds of good for bettas, since the wild breeds are usually darkwater fish. If you start using the tannin-ized water for them, make sure that water you add in during replacements is also treated with the leaves so that the water quality doesn't change suddenly.
