    My Betta recently got a new tank, the other was just a temporary one that my goldfish are in (can't put him in with them, he bit their tails last time while I just cleaned his tank). He's been in the corner ever since I got the new tank. The current caused by the filter is relatively small, it...

    Okay, so in the few years that I've been keeping bettas I haven't had any trouble with the tank and filter combo I have. I don't remember the name or brand to be honest, it was a gift from about 3 and a half years ago so I'm not much help there... However, since I've moved recently I've been...

    Hello all! Trying to figure out if my little guy has fin rot. It would appear yes, but his behavior is completely normal. Looking at an older pic of him, it seems like he does have it - anyone want to confirm? the first picture is probably from 2 months ago. Murph has always been on the...
