    Betta Fish Care
    Hi, I'm a new fish owner, I've had Sir Bubbles for a few months now and he's got a strange bump on his nose right near his eye. It's not popeye, but it might be Lymphocystis. I've looked up a few things and a lot of people say to use salt to try and help him out but I'm not sure what kind of...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    About two week ago a purchased a beautiful vailtail. Since I got him he has had issues with his fins. He has a bit of a tail curl, but I am going to buy a britta filter to help with hardness.

    Betta Chat
    Hey folks, last week, I just bought a male betta for my 10g tank, making it where I now have one betta per tank, with the other in my 20g.
