    After repeatedly google searches, I am still feeling a bit fuzzy on the recommended diet for my Black Orchid Betta.

    I’ve had my beta fish for a couple of months now, I bought him from a pet shop. He settled in really well to his 21L tank and I even got a snail for him. I’ve treated him for fin rot and he seemed to have bounced back, but lately he’s been resting 24/7, floating around and sleeping near the...

    Before I cleaned my bettas tank there were bubbles at the top so immediately I thought it was a bubble nest. But, when I took half of the water out, the bubbles stuck to the side of the tank and did not pop (as shown in the pictures) are these snail eggs?

    I bought a male halfmoon betta from PetSmart 6 days ago for my dorm room. I bought him a 1 gallon tank, preconditioned water, a heater, filter, and some gravel and small tank decor/plant.
