  1. Clampled Fins, Dull Color, Not As Active

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    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...

  3. Any one delt much with Diamond eye in Bettas?

    Betta Fish Care
    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...

    Betta Fish Care
    Hey everyone, Today I was feeding my betta named King and I saw something that is making me a bit worried. He has this white dot that is forming in the middle of his eye. It isn’t in his actual pupil, but on I think the outermost layer of his eye. There is an identical white dot on each eye. He...

  10. Can I put one nerite snail on each side of my divided 10gallon?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have a divided 10gallon tank with a male betta on each side. There is a lot of brown algae and I read that Nerite snails eat brown algae. I am aware that they won't live just off of the algae of course. Could I add one Nerite snail on each side? Will my Bettas mind?

    Hi guys, I've had my Betta fish for about six months. I keep him in a 1-gal bowl with a heater and he's been happy and healthy this entire time- he was even making bubble nests a few weeks ago. Gave him about a 70-75% water change the other day, and ever since, he's been laying on the gravel...
  13. Sponge Filter for 10 gallon Betta tank?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So I got a 10 gallon tank kit by Aqueon at Petco for my two male Bettas. I divided it with some plastic mesh and report covers. The kit came with an Aqueon QuietFlo filter. I thought it was good but I noticed its flow was really strong and pushing my poor Betta around, so he can't swim in the...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I've had my beta fish for a little over 3 years and about 5 days ago he started floating on his side on top of the tank. I did some research and read about sbd. I cleaned the water and the gravel yesterday and for a few hours after that he was actually floating vertically and then returned to...
  16. How To Treat Inflamed Gills?

    Betta Fish Care
    I admit I'm not a person who can take care of betta fish completely well. My betta fish lived in a tank less than a gallon, and my heater had just recently broke. Despite the poor condition I had left it to care for a friend for a while due to some reasons, but by the time I got it back I...

    With a heavy heart we all lose animals we care about. Everything eventually comes to an end. But the worst death are the ones that go and leave without a right. Τhe ones that go with injustice. My little guy had dropsy. He was a big fighter and lived with it for one month. I called the vet for...
