  1. Do you feed the male betta fish while he is tending the eggs?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Hey-- I am interested to know how all of you out there feed your male betta while he is tending the eggs, or if you don't feed him at all. Some say if you feed him, he will be used to food and start to eat the eggs, and others say if you don't feed him he will get hungry and start to eat the...
  2. Egg Bound Female Betta

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Hi! I bought two bettas today from my local pet store, one male and one female. When I bought the female, I noticed her stomach was swollen and with more research figured out that she was egg bound and that her reproductive organ was visible though she is not yet showing signs of being ready to...
  3. Kumos first bubble nest

    Betta Chat
    So I took my halfmoon betta, Kumo, out of his 6 gallon to do a water change. In his temporary tank (2.5 gallon) that I'm using while I'm cleaning out his gravel and doing the water change, he started to build his very first bubble nest! Now I feel terrible that after I do his water change I will...

  5. Betta bubble nest??

    Betta Chat
    Hello! I'm a relatively new betta owner, only had mine (male) for a few months. I recently added a new coral hiding place to his tank that he LOVES. I was wondering if this looked like a bubble nest? I heard they make them when they're happy. Sorry if its hard to see, its in an awkward corner of...
  6. My young male betta has vertical stripes?

    Betta Chat
    I read that only females get vertical stripes so I'm not sure why my male betta has them, he was sold as a baby male at petco, I've had him for about a week and he was slightly bigger then the other babies so is he actually a female that was just sold as a male or do young males sometimes get...
  7. Betta Compatibility

    Breeding Betta Fish
    I have been having a little issue with my Royal Blue VTCT male, named Bluetail (adopted him from another family.) I want him to breed with my Steel Blue CTCT female named Geneviève. They seem to be compatible since they are showing signs of liking each other. (The male is swimming in an "S" and...
  8. Ugh

    Breeding Betta Fish
    I am so frustrated. I've been breeding bettas for years, but this one pair... I have them in a 20 gallon tank filled up six inches. The water temperature is kept at 82 degrees F. I've conditioned both of them well. My female has intense vertical lines and my male has a nice bubble nest. She...

I haven't seen Poseidon make any bubble nest for about a month. and with all these changes I wasn't sure if...

    Betta Fish Care
    I found Sky making his bubble nest again, but this is the biggest i've seen him make. This is about the third time i've seen him do it within the 8 months i've had him. He likes to guard it as you can see in the picture. Couldn't resist posting it's just too adorable! Anyone have nests they...

    Daryl's firstbubblenest but.. Hello everyone! :-) I am proud to tell you and show you that my little boy Daryl made his first ever bubble nest!

    My piebald DT Sherlock is very proud and quite possessive of his bubble nest! I was very careful not to disturb it when adding CO2 booster to the tank... only got moved a little.

    well now I have! I'm sitting on my couch watching my big boy Ronnie make a bubble nest as I type this. I managed to get a crappy video and I posted it on instagram. I got as close as I could but everything I tried to go closer he would swim away. Check out the video :) (oh and follow me for...

    Betta Chat
    My betta had not made a bubble nest in a few weeks, then he made one recently after I did his routine water change. This one is just HUGE though, and he keeps adding to it. It started looking like a normal one but this morning there were bigger bubbles in it..which concerns me a little bit. I...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I'm a college student and I got a betta fish on the fifth of October. I'm getting really attached to him, and I'm slowly realizing I'm not taking the best care of him. So, every day I'm trying to do something to improve his life. I currently have this plastic purple plant inside his aquarium...
  20. Betta fish swimming frantically and breathing heavier than normal!

    Betta Fish Care
    Hello! I'm new to owning bettas and have only had my betta, Sir Rulean, for less than a week. I did a 50% water change on Wednesday and he has been doing great. However, for the past couple days, he has been swimming more frantically. I don't know if it is because I have classes Monday...
