  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, my betta Whiteboard has had a small but noticeable white patch or growth(?) on his left side for awhile now. It was already present when I bought him from the store, but I had thought it was part of the ich which he also had. I treated him for ich and all the ich spots went away within...
  2. Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    my betta gets really aggressive with his water heater. I first put it in there in the summer to keep the temperature consistent and noticed he was nibbling and ripping off tiny chunks so I took it out. Now that it’s winter I put it back in but I think he’s getting sick from attacking and...

    so 12/3 I received 7 female from a seller in the US. About 3 weeks prior I had went to pack store and got 4 females. All were treated with stresscoat, aquarium salt, prazipro. All were very very healthy. So when the other 7 arrived they all were placed in tank at once. Now I didn’t do anything...

    Hello all, My breeder tank currently has a male and female betta in it. The female is separated from the male where they can see each other. The male has built a nest after 3 hours (going back and forth between her and the nest) and she is showing signs of submissiveness (head down, tail up) to...

    Hello. I purchased a betta yesterday afternoon. He has been in his new home for nearly 24 hours.He periodically swims down to the bottom of the tank and appears to scavenging for food, but then quickly darts back up to the surface. I have put a few betta food pellets and bloodworms in there...

    I have a 5 gallon tank all cycles and ready for a new betta fish. So i got a new one a few weeks ago and the night I got him, he jumped out of the tank and unfortunately passed away.

    I have a white opal halfmoon male, and a koi female plaket. If anyone can tell me what their babies may turn out like, that would be great! Would they even make good babies? I don’t know their parents genetics. Sorry for some pics being a bit blurry :/ (My males tail is a bit ripped currently...

    So I got a new betta a few days ago from Petsmart. He was listed as a Male Koi Betta. He/she is in a divided tank and he/she has five gallons heated filtered and planted to his/herself. Upon further studying I’m pretty sure she isn’t a male. I’m pretty sure she has an eggspot, but because of her...

    Today I noticed that my betta fish has a sore on his face. It’s a red big sore that looks kinda white in the center. I included some pictures. I changed his water test days ago and he’s still eating and moving around. What should I do?

    Hello, I bought what I was told was a female dragon Betta. It turns out it is a male (it started breeding with me female Betta in a community tank!). It is a huge Betta but doesn't have the large tail like male Bettas normally have. Can anyone help identify what type of Betta he is? I've...

    Rather than bump an old thread. This might be a fun thing to share with eachother also I'm mighty curious how other keepers come up with names for their aquatic friends. So as the title says: What did you name your Betta and why?
  14. Betta Fish Care
    I've owned my betta fish for over 2 years now and I've been noticing him making bubbles at the top (not a bubble nest), always resting at the top, rather than the bottom and developing bits of black on his scales. I've just recently got a new 3.5 betta tank and I tried cycling it for the first...
  15. Planted Betta Tanks
    I recently just got a new 3.5 gallon tank and realized that I want to start using real plants rather than fake. My tank is tall rather than wide, has a heater and decent filter. I've never used real plants in my tank before and I'm wondering which ones are best for it and what I should buy? I'm...

    Hi, I wish some can give me advice or share experience in successfully treating sick bettas. I kept a lot of betta splendens without any success keeping them long enough. My longest one lasted about 2years? I wished he lived longer (I did not see signs of getting too old). I just lost my...

    Hi everyone, I would like to ask for help with my betta Sprinkle. I have had him for about two months, and for the past few weeks his fins have been shredding and getting worse. I am not sure if this could be fin rot, stress or something else? He is still eating and is very active, his fins are...
