    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Disclaimer: I know the tank is too small and he should have a heater, but I’m a broke college student and no one else wanted him, so I’m doing the best I can with what I’ve got. Symptoms and Treatment: Photos at the bottom. I rescued this fish from my brother, who’d kept it in the tiny plastic...

    Hey all! I had recently ordered a container of Downoi but it was emersed form, all of it melted away within a few days in my tank and also my father's tank :( So if anyone has a few clippings of established submersed Downoi I would love some! I'm also looking for Blue Leopard-spot Ramshorn...
  4. SIP Prince Azul

    Betta Memorials
    Prince Azul (featured in my profile pic), I got him on a whim 3 years ago when I went to pick up food for my turtles I saw him sitting there and fell in love with him immediately. He reminded me of Nemo as his left fin was pretty torn up, but he had a fighting spirit and immediately swam up when...

  7. Adelburn is getting older too

    Betta Pictures
    I showed some pictures of takumi I figured I could do the same with adelburn! He is as mean as ever, but then again that's compared to takumi who I feel is a bit overly friendly. But whatever. We had an incident with his tail a while ago so it's not what it used to be :/ BUT I am getting better...
  8. Takumi is getting older!

    Betta Pictures
    Alas my darling takumi is getting older and his colors are starting to expand. Though as much as I loved the clean line between his white and blue before, I'm loving the look of him now. He is so much fun, swimming between my fingers and over my hand :D here are some before and after pics!!

    Betta Pictures
    A couple days ago my dream betta passed away, I'd only had him 2weeks. This morning I decided to go to the pet store I got him from to let them know what had happened, they informed me 3 other bettas from that batch had died too. They insisted I have another betta free of charge (they know I...

  15. Does our betta look healthy?

    Betta Fish Care
    He's been sleeping a lot lately and seems to be changing colors? He was all blue when we got him a year ago. Anyways, I wanted to know if anyone could take a look and let me know if you think he looks like a healthy betta. His tail looks a little choppy to me. Thanks!
  16. How to tell if a Betta is a Marble?

    Betta Fish Care
    I've looked everywhere, and there were only very vague articles (not blocked by the library computers) that had anything to do with Marble Bettas. I could sure use some help identifying if my little 'Blindi is a Marble or not. He's a blue Veiltail. I'll get pictures up by tomorrow... I was...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    About a week or two ago, I bought a new betta fish from my local Walmart. When I first put him in the tank (a five gallon, new, filtered), he was happy and would swim around and enjoy the space, but as time went by, he grew more and more lethargic. I figured it was because the tank was not...
