I probably wouldn't house them with your B. imbellis. I have never kept this species of Killifish so can't help with the sexing of them, but I have read that they can be quite aggressive. Killifish...

I don't know if the OP still visits this forum, but I just wanted to clear up the fact that this is definitely not a Betta hendra female. The size and shape of coccina complex species is very...

Dark substrate, tannin stained water, plenty of plant cover, and dim lighting will give you the best behaviour and colouring in most species of wild betta (I believe some species do come from more...

Nothing makes me more angry when I see hobbyists (not meaning your FB friend) lose multiple fish from jumping, but they don't take any steps to prevent it from happening in the future. Often it's a...

There's a FB group dedicated to wild bettas in the US (I'm not sure if I can post the name of the group on the open forum or will have to do so through private message). On this group, there are a...

While it may be that the fish in the OP were actually male and female, I once witnessed two of my sub-adult wild betta males wrapping each other. I put it down to a dominance display, excitement, or...

Most breeders don't seem to recommend it. Some of the splendens complex species can be just as aggressive as the ornamental form. Based on what I've seen on FB groups, breeders of Betta mahacaiensis...

I personally don't believe a 9 gallon tank would provide adequate swimming space for a group of Otocinclus. I know many hobbyists keep Otocinclus in small tanks, and in small numbers, but I don't...

I tend to associate vertical barring with submission. I've seen my wild betta males do it on occasion. In particular, younger or more submissive males, possibly as a way to look as non-threatening as...

I personally think it is likely poor nutrition that has caused the stunting. I say this because when I was breeding wild bettas, I would perform very few water changes. Perhaps removing and replacing...

Another option that hasn't been mentioned here (provided you can source it and your fish find it palatable), is Repashy Grub Pie. I think this food is an excellent staple for insectivorous fish. I...

I've found severe fin biting can cause deformities in the fins. So I wonder if this is the case here.

Unfortunately, while your roomate's intentions were likely good, that set-up is not suitable for any fish, let alone a fish that is capable of growing to a foot in length.

Because of their size,...

It seems odd that you would be recommended those fish for a tank that size. A Bristlenose Pleco will outgrow a 10 gallon once it reaches adult size, an Opaline Gourami will reach at least 5 inches in...

Don't worry, everyone makes mistakes with their first betta spawn. It's a success if you can raise even one fry to maturity. I do find that you learn something new with each spawn, and each spawn...
