    Hello everyone! I rescued a Betta this previous Friday because I was so horrified that this beautiful and active fish was stuck in a tiny and dirty cup. (I went for dog food, came back with a fish. I forgot the dog food). He's a beautiful Delta Tail boy, named Orwell. My aquarium for him had...
  2. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I am fairly new to owning Bettas but I have owned and bred Comets and Koi for many years. I have not encountered any real health issues with my goldfish so I have very little experience diagnosing anything other than Ich, and I am not sure what is going on with my Betta. I purchased him from a...

    I recently purchased a double halfmoon male, who is a beautiful light blue and clear color. He looked perfectly healthy, but when I brought him home he had a lot of trouble dealing with the current in the three gallon tank he was bought for. I took the filter out, but as I observed him (Named...

    Hi everyone! I'm new to the community, but, I'm not new to the wonderful world of bettas. Anyway, about a year ago my mom surprised me with my blue/green VT, Sherlock, as a fry and I've had him ever since.

    I have a little pet store boy, I'm pretty sure he's a dragon scale rosetail but his scaling is quite bad and over the past year that I've had him he's been progressively losing his sight. He can still see a little and comes to the tank when he sees me. I working on other ways to tell him it's...

    I am a college freshman and I brought my betta with me. He's been with me for about a year and three months. I actually got him on my last day of school. I had just completed my aquaculture class and was inspired to get a fish and care for it. My teacher suggest I start with a betta because...

    So I was "gifted" a dumbo betta from PetSmart this week. I had brought him to the fish department, showed them that he was blind in both eyes and had serious weight and fin deterioration. They very happily turned him over to me hoping I would do better than his nasty pet shop cup...

    Hey-o~ so I went in to get my dog's nails done and ... lo and behold I came home with another freakin' fish. :roll: At least I have space for him now that my little girlie is in the 10gal. PetSmart gave him to me for free because he is BLIND in both eyes (and was severely clamped)!!! His cup...

    Well before I begin.. I am on my phone and it's midnight so forgive me for any misspellings. I have a male betta fish named Oshie. I have had him for a year and he had always been pretty active. Recently, he has been laying on his side at the bottom of the tank & not swimming much. This is...

    I recently adopted an elephant ear betta from Petco and he has these cloudy, blue eyes. He doesn't respond to my fingers on his tank but if I make noise, he dives into hiding. He eats perfectly fine and acts normal. Has anyone else seen this? I have heard of "diamond eyes" but I have no clue...
