    I am looking to get a betta very soon and have a small concern. I have a 10 gallon setup for my betta but it used to be a community tank and I have 1 glow light tetra in there. His name is cheese fries (long story). I have heard stories of bettas being bullied by these fish but I had guppies in...

    I know it's a long read, but I didn't want to exclude anything that may help you in solving my dilemma with me! My Betta Legolas (yeah I have a Lord of the Rings theme) has been thriving for 8 months. I had him in a way too small 1.5 gal bowl for the longest time, and I decided I wanted to...

    Hi! So I know that every betta is an individual, but I was wondering if there is any correlation between betta aggression and their tail types? Like, I seem to remember reading somewhere that plakats are considered more aggressive because they're more closely related to wild types bred to fight...

    So I just got my first Betta. It's a red, white and blue 'Dumbo'. He has been in the tank for a few hours now with 5 cardinal tetras. He isn't particularly small or particularly big. I have done everything that I have read about to reduce stress and give him an easy start. However, my...

    Hello I am new to this site, and to fish keeping as well, I've been doing this for almost 2 years by myself, not counting all the years I've had fish as child with my parents being to ones taking care of them. Right now I own two tanks. One is a 2.5 gallon which is home to my male double tail...

    Hi everyone! So yesterday I was off to get a betta fish. My previous had passed away a month ago - awful, chronic swim bladder. No amount of peas or fasting helped my little man :-( Anyway, my LFS is pretty good. They know their stuff. They recently expanded and are now carrying bettas. Their...
  8. Breeding Betta Fish
    I am breeding my first batch of betta fry and ran into some trouble. The male seems particularly aggressive towards the females, as if he doesn't want them there at all I put the male in the tank for a few days, then introduced a female to the tank this morning in a jar. He made a big bubble...

    My betta, Orion, lived perfectly harmoniously with his 4 ghost shrimp-mates for the last 4-5 months. This past week, he hunted them down and ate them all. I haven't made any sudden changes in his tank location or set-up. What could have prompted him to do this? Today, he killed the last shrimp...

    I have 3 Angels, 2 of them the size of a 50c coin and 1 as small as a 5c. They're in a sorority with 5 female bettas, have been raised with the bettas and have never nipped fins. Can this last? ETA the tank is 250L and also has 3 corys and 2 BN catfish

    A few days ago I moved my betta from his little 1 gallon into a 10g planted tank with False Julii Cory cats and a pair of otocinclus (all about 2/3 - 3/4 full adult size). There is probably about 30-40% plant coverage providing lots of hiding places. The betta pretty much leaves the cory cats...

    I'm worried that my tank may be overstocked and causing the aggressive behavior exhibited by my larger ghost shrimp. I have 20 shrimp and 1 male betta in a 10 gallon heavily planted tank ( 2 1/2 cups of Java moss, 1 marimo ball, 10 anubias, 7 water wisteria, some duckweed and frog bit ). They...

    So this afternoon I removed 1 guppie from my 8 males as he was being picked on his tail is completely ruined, I'm unsure why it was him, his tail is bigger than the others and he is a different colour, once removed I noticed the remaining guppies were ganging up and chasing another guy and...

    Lately, I've noticed that one of my frogs, IHOP, has been hopping up to and biting at Rufio. I am convinced that she thinks that he is food and I'm already seeing little tears in his fins. I'm concerned for my fish and I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem and how they dealt with it...

    So I have a 10 gallon tank and a male betta, he is pretty mellow, not super aggressive. I just got 2 neon tetras and he is fine with them, he chases them but believe me if he wanted to kill them he would have :) I know that tetras are schooling fish and in a day or two I will get 3 more neons, I...

    I have a 10gal sorority tank with what was six girls cohabitating for... I think its been 3 months now, and at the end of last week I noticed that the most recent addition to the sorority wasn't coming out to eat, so I dug around and found that the others had not only killed her, but torn her to...

    Alright so I had a dwarf gourami and a molly living in a 10 gallon peacefully and the gourami and molly always got along, swimming by together. But today went to the fish store and added 4 baby danio glofish and a killifish. Since then, my dwarf gourami has been going crazy attacking all the...

    I have a 5 gallon divided tank with a male betta on one side and female betta on the other. It is a homemade divider - made from clear mesh craft board I bought at hobby lobby. The two of them flare at each other quite often. I know the stimulation is enriching for them to a certain...

    I have a male betta in a 10g tank with a filter, heater, and LED lights. Also, about a week and a half ago I added an african dwarf frog. My betta DID NOT LIKE IT... at least at first. He would puff up his gills and attack him everyday. The frog hasn't been hurt (at least I don't see any...
