biting tail

  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    When I woke up today and went to feed my Betta boy, I noticed his tail has little bites at the ends. I played with him yesterday so I think I would have noticed, it must have been over night. It's not much, but feels like a lot over just one night. I recently redid the tank to be able to give...

    I feel really really bad for my babies! I have to male bettas and something is the matter with them and I can't put my finger on it. They are both missing fins and I feel like they might be stressed out. I got them as a birthday gift (June 18) from my mate who knows nothing about fish (poor guy...

    My beautiful blue male is driving me a little bit crazy. He won't stop chewing on his tail! Every time it starts to grow back, he it right off again. He is very active and seems happy. He is fed adequately, but not overfed. He has plenty of plants to hide and play in, and his water is 78...

    Hi guys, I've had my betta fish for about a year and half (not sure on his age, as I got him from a lady on Craigslist who "didn't have time" for him.) A few months ago, he was upgraded to a 10 gallon tank with heater, air pump and filter. He has live plants and lives with one zebra snail. He...
