    I put Moses in a holding cup while I was feeding my shrimp so he would not eat their food. My neighbor from a couple of years ago rang on my door bell so I went outside to talk to her for a good 45 minutes. I came back and Moses was on the floor. He was still a bit wet when I picked him up and...

    I'm incredibly angry right now. One of the brats in my neighborhood decided it would be funny to come into my room and pour a ton of face lotion inside my betta fish tank while I was studying at the library. I came home to find my tank cloudy and Moses barely alive. I quickly set up a hospital...

    Hello, a while ago I purchased a yellow veiltail betta fish. The first picture is what he looked like when I first got him. Since then I've placed him in a five gallon tank with a heater, filter, plants, hiding places, and a few ghost shrimp. But the tips of his fins are gradually getting...

    I just picked up my new betta from Petco yesterday. I have a five gallon tank for him, a heater at 78 degrees, a filter on low current and a live plant and no plastic decorations that could hurt him. I don't know if it's because he's a really light color that his fins look a little frayed or if...

    Hello, I'm Tabby, and my new betta boy is named Vega. I'm a college student from Pennsylvania who's recently purchased my first real betta set-up. (I say real because I owned quite a few bettas when I was younger, before I realized that the pet store tanks were not actually acceptable.) I'm a...

    Okay so I just got done cleaning my fish bowl. I left my fish in a cup in the tank so he cant get "use" to the temperature. I just put him back in and he keep opening and closing his mouth?! What is happening and is he going to be okay?

    Hey guys, I recently purchased a male Red VT from Petco who has some pretty badly curled fins, and a gill cover that is constantly poking outward. he acts way more lively than my only other betta in the past.. but I want to make sure little Tibodeux (Tibbers) lives as happily and long as...

    I'm definitely a novice when it comes to Bettas, I've only had goldfish in the past. I am also unemployed right now (job hunting), and funds are tight. I went away on a family trip and someone came and watched our cat. She "watched" my fish, but she didn't know how to really take care of it...

    So, I got my guy Callisto about a week and a half ago. Right away, I started noticing some strangeness with his finnage. I asked a question about some of it (went unanswered :-( ) in this thread here: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=488649 While that thread is still a bit of a...

    My male veiltail Ianto Jones is his usual spastic self, but he has something growing on his fin and I'm not sure what to do. He shares a divided 20gal high tank with his brother Captain Jack Harkness, a male plakat. The plakat has no noticeable problems. All of the plants are silk, the anemone...

    Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum and betta fish care, so please do be patient with me. :) I bought my second betta fish (I had one as a small child) approximately 2 weeks ago. He was very good for a few days and seemed very happy in his tank. I came home one day and felt the water temperature...

    My new Betta which I got on Friday was fine when I got him. He was originally a white Betta with an orange tail, but when I got home a few minutes ago, I noticed him at the top of the water, barely moving, and much paler. I looked at his tail and noticed what looks like blood running through his...

    Hi! I've been keeping bettas since I was pretty young, like six. However, I always kept them in tanks less than 3 gallons. I decided to start up the hobby again, so I did some research. I now have Lucas, my veiltail, in a 10-gallon tank. Okay so here are my questions:-). His tank temperature is...

    I just ordered 2 new beautiful Betta fish from Aquabid coming at the end of the month. I went to the petstore and decided on a 5 gallon tank for the first fish. I also bought a water heater and some decorations. After looking at it for awhile I feel like I should get an even larget tank for the...

    So recently I bought a fish. He was in a one gallon bowl for about a week because that was all I could afford. I ended up with a five gallon tank. Filter heater plants gravel lights and everything. Figured he would be perfectly cool with it. He eats well and swims and flexes his fins quite often...
