  1. Breeding Betta Fish
    Hey everyone, I have a few questions as a very new betta fish owner/breeder. A few days ago I tried pairing two betta fish and it was going well, or so I thought. The tank was too small, roughly 1L maybe, and it was going very well, I had a female betta in a cut out water bottle placed in the...
  2. Betta Fish Care
    Hello Everyone! I recently got a new double-tail betta fish at Petco just about a week ago. When I got him, he was in great condition, especially for a fish bought from a pet store like that. Unfortunately, I soon found out that he is extremely afraid of my fingers near the tank, and he won't...

    Hello everyone. I recently bought my first fish a few days ago (Saw the poor thing in a cup that someone had just left in the stationary section at the store that I work at so I decided to bring him home). He's a white crown tailed betta. He seems to be relatively active and after looking up a...

    I got a half moon Betta a week ago from Petco and he still hasn't eaten! He sits in one corner of the tank and hardly moves. The tank is brand new: 3 gallons, with heater at 80 degrees, a filter, bubbling system. I first gave him pellets, then switched to flakes and some bloodworms. But I...

  6. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    We’ve had our betta fish for almost a year, and she’s been VERY healthy and happy. But recently about 2-3 weeks ago we went on vacation, my parents came over to feed her (they knew exactly how much to feed her) but the tank went too long un-cleaned, although it looked clean. After we returned I...
  7. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello! I got a Betta a couple of days ago and he has been acting weird ever since. His behavior includes: 1 - Wedging himself between plant leaves and just staying there for hours upon hours. 2 - When he does come out, he swims around in short little bursts. He darts around for a couple of...

    My betta, Javert, is recovering from ammonia poisoning. I found out I was using a conditioner that didn't neutralize ammonia, but I've switched over to one that does. Javert was getting his color back and wasn't clamping his fins so much, but he won't eat. He swims up to his food, was it, and...

    Hello! I'm a proud new betta owner, but I had a few questions. I just bought my betta fish yesterday. He's a delta tail male, and he's currently in a 1.5 gallon tank along with a plant, a floating log, gravel, and a filter. His tank is about 72-73 degrees. I'm worried because he doesn't seem to...

    I was at walmart yesterday picking up some things for my boyfriend, when I saw him. He was the only betta fish on the shelf, his water was green with what looked like mold in growing on the surface, I thought he was dead but as I got closer he started to move...barely. I just couldn't walk...
