  1. What am I doing? lol

    I left this site for like 5 years, now I'm back, married, living in another state and it looks like i convinced the hubby to let me get a betta. :-P I used to have a few in high school, and since moving up here has been paranoid about me having a fish tank of any sort for no apparent reason. BUT...

  3. Pacing in a new tank

    Betta Fish Care
    I just put my betta in a new tank today after acclimatizing him. He kinda just checked everything out at first, then later in the day whenever I was in the room he'd be pacing the very front of the tank non-stop. I don't think he could be bored since he only just moved there and he's got lots to...

    Betta Fish Care
    We have had our male betta Fluffinator for a little over a year now. He is in a 5 gallon tank with a heater and we feed him 4 pellets a day, 6 days a week.

    I don't know if he's sick or what, but my new betta Jett has been acting strange lately. He is a very young fish, barely more than a fry. He hasn't wanted to eat, I'm talking like he'll only eat three pellets a week and he normally eats two every day. I'm getting ready to move him up to a nice...

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi, so I've had my betta for almost two weeks now and recently when I checked on him I noticed his fins were slightly shredded. It doesn't look serious however, and he still acts healthy so I put it down to the decorations. Turns out my cave and fake coral were sharp in places I hadn't even...

    I'm posting on behalf of my friend. I helped her pick out a betta fish and she's had him for almost a week. This is what he looked right after she got him: This is what he looks now: She's done everything she can. I got her to move him to a 5 gallon tank. She has changed the plastic...
  8. Bored betta?

    Betta Fish Care
    I think Bentley is bored. I've had him for about a month now, and he was acting normal the first couple weeks- eating like a little pig, flaring occasionally, and exploring his tank. But lately he's gotten really lethargic, and just sits on the gravel or hangs out pressed to the front of the...

    Betta Fish Care
    so my betta is either sick (i doubt... he still swims around a bit...) or very bored. i kinda feel bad for him, and I know that if they get bored, they could even die from it. I have two decorations inside my tank... 10 gallons... any ideas? thanks!
