  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, I've recently noticed that my betta fish began to become lethargic these past few days and his stomach isn't swelled up too much but he is pine coning slightly, he isn't willing to eat at all and he isn't as interactive as he was before. I need help on what exactly I should do because I...
  2. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi everyone. We got our first Betta fish, Ginger, 2 days ago from a local aquatics store. At first I thought he had speckles on him, but on looking closer they are actually little holes in his fins. I’ve also noticed black tips at end of his fins, which at first we thought was his colouring as...

    I'm just getting back into fishkeeping after 11 years, and I'd like to try something new this time. I used to have a betta in a 2.5g, and platys in a 10g and they were fun, but this time I'd like to get a 10 gallon tank with a betta and some cory cats and create a planted aquascape. I'm going to...
  6. Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hi everybody, after a long research I have decided that I would like to purchase a Betta fish but I need an advice about their tank mates. I don't like snails and shrimp because I'm afraid they will breed uncontrolably but Kuhli Loaches seem interesting enough. Do you think that they would breed...

    hello, I joined in order to get some advice. We have a male black orchid betta who has a white patch on his head. It's been about a week (i think) since we noticed it. At first we thought it was ick but treatment did nothing. He still eats, makes lots of bubbles as usual and greets me when he...

    Hey y'all! I've noticed my betta has these odd spots on his back and am not sure what they are to treat them effectively. Housing: How many gallons is your tank? 3.5 Does it have a filter? yes Does it have a heater? yes What temperature is your tank? Not sure, but it is a 10 watt heater Does...
  9. Planted Betta Tanks
    I have a betta in a 10 gallon tank. I do have some floating plants currently but brought some more plants to be put in the tank. I also brought some ADA Aqua Soil (version 2), but I’ve heard that it leeches ammonia and takes around 3-4 weeks maybe longer. I do not want to take the fish out of...

    Hiii, I best get straight to the point or I'll be here forever!! Long story short, a friend is moving and has to rehome his Betta, I offered to add him to my 20gal Community planted tank that I had just started stocking. I was intending to do a dwarf cichlid pair with some tetra's, but now I am...

    hi :) I've wanted to keep bettas for AGES but was put off till recently due to the "fragile" reputation ive grown up hearing about. I have a thoroughly planted 20 gallon tank which currently houses 2 khuli loaches (i intend to get more, i read they prefer groups of 5+) as well as my little...

    Hello Everyone! I have a little blue delta tail (possibly cellophane) male betta named Casper! I got him when he was a little younger than an adult in June of this year and since then, he has started biting his tail in the past month and a half or so - for what reason, I am not sure yet! So...
  13. Betta Fish Care
    Hi, I wish some can give me advice or share experience in successfully treating sick bettas. I kept a lot of betta splendens without any success keeping them long enough. My longest one lasted about 2years? I wished he lived longer (I did not see signs of getting too old). I just lost my...

    I’ll keep the intro short since I kinda went to town on the questionnaire: My girlfriend and I liberated (bought) Jeph from an abandoned Walmart fish department that was removed less than a month later. His health has never been great but seems to be declining quickly with a rough case of fin...
  15. Betta Fish Care
    Mr. Richards has been recovering from mild fin rot that he had when we got him from the pet store. He's been doing really well lately, but then all these little patches showed up and I'm a little concerned, especially because I don't think the ones on his top fin showed up until today. His top...

    Hi! I have decided to upgrade my betta's tank from a 3.5 gallon to a 5 gallon. From the research I've done I decided that sand would be a good idea for this tank? Do any sand users have recommendations and advice? Will live plants live better or worse in these conditions? Any good/bad...

    Hello everyone, I have recently bought a 50 liter fish tank (13 gallons) and I was wondering some of you would be so kind as to give me some advice for setting it up and what brands I should stick to. I'm trying to look for cheap (but not too cheap) equipment for the fish tank and methods for...

    Overnight (probably), some light spots appeared on Reggie's head. My first thoughts were ick, but it doesn't look like ick to me. They aren't salt-sized, they aren't even that white. The photos aren't too good at showing, but they're actually sort of flesh-colored? As if the black pigment has...
