    Hi! So my betta fish’s tail and fins have been ripping and look torn up, I don’t know if he has fin rot, is stressed and tore them himself, or if the decorations he has is too sharp. He was in a 2.5 when his fins first started to tear, but now he is in a 5.5 gallon tank. I would like help on...

    Hello I noticed tonight that my betta has a scratch of some sort on his scales. I was wondering if this scratch on his scales looks bad? Will I need some sort of betta skin repair cost or would I be able to get away with just water changes? Again it doesn’t seem like a deep scratch it’s just...

    Hello, I recently bought a betta male and 3 Santa Maria Endlers for a 10 gal tank. I did a proper water transfer and fish get along fine my betta doesn’t care about the Endlers at all. However, I noticed today my betta has a clamped fin and is darting back fourth at the bottom of the tank and...

    Hello, I am in desperate need of help and I hope someone can help explain what is wrong with my Betta. I woke up this morning to find his face full of spots and a flakey-like, yellow substance stuck in his bum. The bottom on his tank is filled of crusty looking substances- I don’t know if it’s...

  6. Show Bettas
    I've owned bettas for a while, but I just recently discovered betta shows and I found out there's an IBC show near me in October! I've been doing my best to study up on finnage and form for bettas as well as watched how bettas are judged at shows and I think I've got a rough understanding of it...

    I woke up this morning to find my boy opening up his gills a lot, or what seems like a lot to me. Or is it not? Here is a video so you can judge it. I also gave him food (0:22) off my finger so you could see his apetite, I think he's eager to eat and eats healthy. He seems to be acting...

    I am on the verge of tears already. I found a blow-out (possibly) tear on my betta's anal fin. I don't get it. A sudden split usually occurs from flaring, but I didn't ever see him flare without me showing him a mirror, so it can't possibly be overflaring and I doubt he spends his entire night...

    Hello, this is Ciel in his tank in case that matters, it's filled with 13-14 litres of water with size-appropriate doses of Tetra PlantaMin and Tetra BettaSafe. He has two live Java ferns and one moss ball. Driftwood has been boiled in saltwater for three hours and at this point, it practically...

    Hello So, one of my bettas is sick again. Now this guy is notorious for getting constipated but this time, I think it may be a bit worse. He’s swimming very oddly and can’t seem to swim to the bottom of the tank easily. I think he may be backed up again but he’s not bloated, from what I can...

    Hi all, Sorry for the number of posts, but I can't figure out what's wrong with my female betta, Grandma. Around the week before Christmas, she stopped eating. I tried switching up her diet by feeding her some frozen brine shrimp, but she still refused to eat. Then, after about a week, she...

    I recently posted about my sick betta, and you guys were all very helpful with what to do to heal her. For a while she seemed to make progress, but now she's showing strange behavior, and I don't know what to think. She's been "standing on her head" at the bottom of the tank, and she hasn't...

    My 15 gallon tank was supposed to have all 3 of my bettas but the filter was too strong for the betta in the middle, he was always hiding behind it and was seeming tired so I used my old 2.5 gallon tank and put him in there as a substitute until I found a solution. Now it's about 9 months - 1...

    One of my bettas has had this fin rot for a while and it just wont go away.:-( I've read that trimming the tail would help get rid of the problem. Is this true? Info: I've been treating him with antibiotics ( API® T.C. Tetracycline Freshwater Bacterial Infection Treatment) He's currently in a...

I want to but the betta in my 10 gallon platy tank but I don't know if hell like it or the platies will like him. I want to fix his stomach problem fist but at least he can still swim...

    So I realized that the female Betta I just purchased follows all the symptoms of internal parasites... And I don't know the cure. 1) minimal movement 2) sits at bottom 3) white poo, or eggs... I don't know (string from her egg spot that's lumpy and looks like a chain of eggs) 4) doesn't eat 5)...

    I have just purchased a new betta about 3 hours ago. When I bought her, I was aware of how stressed and unhealthy she is... However I was hooked on healing her because my whole life I wanted a yellow betta and I finnaly found one. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to heal her. 1) her fins are...

    I'm afraid my poor baby might have some kind of resistant fin rot, and I'm not sure how to treat it. So many sights say so many different things. My betta is a five month old double tail. He is in a five gallon tank that is heated to 79 degrees always and is filtered. There is no air stone, but...

    hello, I read the sticky on fish care, and I didn't quite find my answer. I am brand new to owning a betta, and I too fell into the trap of thinking it would be a simple fish to take care of, but as soon as I got home and started my research I realized that there was a lot more to betta care...
