    Hi, I recently bought an air pump and an airstone for my betta’s tank. But I’m afraid the pump is a little too strong, when I connected it, my betta seemed a little agitate. Should I leave it on for a few minutes and wait if it relaxes him?

    Ive had male betta fish for a little over a year. He is currently in a 5 gallon planted tank and I was planning on moving him to his own 17 gallon tank this week. However this past week he’s been acting very strange. He’s normally very active, but lately he’s either been hiding in his house...

    I was feeding Martha some blood worms today when i noticed these black marks near her eyes. Could this be hole in head or just her coloring/ pores. So far she'd been eating like normal and doesn't seem too lethargic but these marks have me concerned. She had a 2.5 gallon tank with a heater and...

    Hello, For the first 6 months I had my betta he was an avid bubble nest builder (photos attached). Even when I'd destroy them from water changes he'd go right back to making new ones. However, for the past month, he has suddenly stopped making them. He made one in the past month, but the next...

    Hello, My betta has been suffering with gradual and progressive tail rot for 4-6 months now. It began when I moved him from my apartment to my house, which seemed to be an extremely stressful experience for him. He wouldn’t come out from the back of the tank for nearly a week. Eventually his...

    I am still very new to the hobby and the forum, so please forgive any obvious mistakes. Yesterday I got a betta to go in a small tank in the bedroom. The tank is not cycled as I decided to go with fish-in-cycling, using filter media from an already established tank, along with Tetra Safe Start...

    Hi this is Clyne, i was wondering if he has fin rot? He got it when i received from a local store. Had some Indian almond leaves and alder cones on the bottom of tank. If it is, i guess i have to quarantine it to a salt bath and Indian almond leaves? Also his eyes has some blue color on it, is...

    Hi, My Betta fish Pete has been having white patches for months now and it grew from when he first had it. He is in a 2.5 gallon tank alone. Water is changed regularly at least once a week, and since he’s been having what’s look like fin rot and fungus infection, water is changed twice a week...

    I got my betta at PetSmart about 3 months ago, he was labeled as a mermaid betta fish. Not knowing, I bought him a small tank about 3 gallons and he was doing well, but after some research on bettas I decided to get him a new 8 gallon tank. I filled the tank with tap water, put in the water...

    Hello, I hope this is the right place to post this. I am not a betta breeder I am looking for some female bettas. Before I go searching in my local petstores I wanted to ask on here if there is anyone in the Vancoucer to Portland area who has a spawn or has some younger females for sale within...

    Hi everyone! I have a betta fish named Piggy, I've had him for about 2 months now and he has become my best friend! We had issues with the cycling of the tank, his fins (I thought he had fin rot, I was using the Fish Keeper formula and they improved immensly), and just the new mom stress of...

    I was going to get someone to pet sit my fish, but they bailed out at the last second. There's nobody else that can take care of my fish, so I need to rely on my vacation feeder. I have an Eheim. I've tested it before; it releases just the right amount of food if you cover the feeder hole with...

    Hi everyone! I have had betta fish before, but I recently got a new one for my birthday at the end of April! His name is Piggy, he is a male crowntail, and he has quite the personality! I originally had him in a glass bowl that my sister got from Walmart. This past weekend, I went to a great...

    Hello My blue betta have clear fins. But some of them are a little yellow. Specially the ones in the front bottom. Please see the pictures. Can this be fin rot or is everything normal. An other thing I want to ask is, if it is normal for a betta to swim left to right at the glass for a long...

    I really need help. My beta likes to swim near his filter which he’s always done since I got him. One time he got stuck on it and I went to move the filter and he swam right off. On Friday 5/27 he got stuck on it again. His tail was stuck inside the filter and he was wrapped around it. I had to...

    I just bought this betta fish 2 days ago, he/she is beautiful. I was told at the fish store that the betta was a male. I showed my friend pictures who keeps lots of fish and she said that it looked female. Please help, I can’t tell if my betta is male or female.

    Hi! So, I just got my third betta fish, Nathan Royal James Lucas Scott (Nathan for short). I just got him from Petsmart and I don't know how that's looked on in the betta fish community but please don't be too harsh. That gets me to my main point, I just want to know how to give him the best...

    New here! A couple weeks ago I found this dude in a store and had to take him home because of his pretty colours, and it was only when I got him settled in I saw how weird he is and I'm unable to figure out just what he is. Assuming male because of long ventrals, visible beard and I can't see an...
