    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...

    I love that he's active and healthy, but this dude won't even give me a chance. I cannot get a good photo of him, I swear he's doing this on purpose. How rude.
  3. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So I tested my tank today because my betta has been very inactive lately, and his tail fins are getting slightly ripped up. I checked the pH, and it was at 8.5! This is considerably confusing me because I've had a piece of mopani driftwood in the tank, which is supposed to lower the pH, but for...

    I'm obsessed with my new boy. I'm excited to see the color changes he might go through. Also loving my tank setup! It's a simple 10 gallon with live/fake plants, floaters, catappa leaves, and wood. I added a bit of flare with my background. I set up a clock and some fake lavender to act as a...

    I'm really concerned about my betta right now. Last night he was his regular color, opal blue tinge. Today I looked at him and his tail is partially red and looks ripped?? He's breathing very heavily right now and laying sideways. He lives in a 20 gallon with four platys and some ghost shrimp...

    Howdy! I recently got a betta fish from a relative about 10 days ago (who obviously had not been taking great care of him). When I got him, he had a lump on his side (see first image), and now it has gotten bigger and more white (see next photos). He is incredibly happy right now, eats great...

    Hi. Several days ago, ( I think 4-5 ) I reduced another betta from a pet store other than petsmart. The conditions were HORRIBLE. There was a 4 day old dead betta. The tanks were full of algae. There was a shelf with a small stash of betta. In that stash surprisingly, the bettas were mostly...

    Hi. I just got back from town with the fish. I let it acclimate and then used the net to put it in the tank. He most likely has swimbladder, I have treated this before with success, But also with failure 😞. I was wondering if you guys would have any tips on treating it. He is soo pretty and I...
  10. Breeding Betta Fish
    HELLO, I breed my Male and female and the female successfully laid eggs, and from what I observe, the male now is trying to chase and flaring the female, the thing is, my female betta still have a bloated stomach and I can see the egg spot, I guess the female betta is still pregnant. Currently...

    New Member Introductions
    Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself since I am planning on selling betta fish and betta fry. I am a 19 year old biology college student who works at a pet store. I love to help out with aquatics since a betta was the first pet I ever had. Over the years I done my own research and fixed most...

    Hi everyone! Never mentioned this before but I'm a digital illustrative artist working towards a career in character art/concept work! Thought I'd test myself in animal illustrations by drawing my 'lil guy! Let me know what you think!! (Used the watermark from my Instagram, @/tulullypone)...

    This was when I first got him. He was living in a cold environment with unchanged water/filter and algae growing in the filter. Also, the pink rocks were taking away his color imo. They were too bright. It was horrible. The picture below is an update after a week of having him. I added a...

    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. So last night I got another fish for this tank hoping this new fish would not jump out. This fish I have now is...

    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...

    I have been unsuccessful in helping my betta's clamped fins. A few months ago, I was able to stop the fin rot and promote re-growth of his top fin with an aquarium salt regime. It worked wonders! However, in the past month or so, I notice him suffering again from fin rot with his other fits. His...

    This is my new Male Koi Betta Mushu 🖤 Took me forever to get this nice poised picture of him: But I think this really captures the essence of his personality 😂 He’s such a little goof!

    I have a Betta called Bowie that has a thing called “Diamond eye”... it’s a recessive gene in bettas that basically means they over produce scales and over time the scales can start to cover the eye/eyes... Crazy hey!!? Bowie probably has 0-5% vision on his left side and about 50% on his right...
