  1. Is my Betta Fish trying to attack me when it jumps up at my face?!

    Betta Fish Care
    It started a couple days ago when I was talking to him above the water, as usual. Then I noticed him move his side fins faster to prepare for a jump right at my face and almost completely out of the water.

    Other Fish
    Today I decided to purchase a guppy to go along with my female betta and three platys. The betta has chased the other fish before, been houses with guppies, but has never "attacked" another fish, so I didn't see much issue with adding a single guppy. The guppy I purchased did a fun slit and...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi all! I got my first Betta fish, Panda, about 3 weeks ago and he lives in a 1.5 L jar in my bedroom. He seems healthy (according to my limited knowledge and that of my tropical fish expert housemate) and I wanted to get a good look at him for a while, whilst keeping him warm in the chilly...
  7. Struggling new fish, please help.

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Last Sunday (January 31) my friend went out and bought both of us a Betta fish. I had nothing to care for the fish, as it was a surprise, but he told me I could borrow goldfish flakes from my friend to feed him until I got real Betta food. I ordered a Betta fish kit online from PetCo, but sadly...
