  1. Not sure what to think? (Not an emergency)

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So when I got my boy about a month ago, his pectoral fins were rotted almost all the way down to the nub, but the rest of his fins seemed pretty alright. Now, a month later, his pectoral fins have grown back with a vengeance, even regaining some of their color. But his anal fin seems to be just...
  2. Worried about Tankmate

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, So I had two fish, in a 5 gallon tank with a filter and a heater. One, Plato, was a small crowntail with a tiny stomach and he'd often get bloated if I fed him more than every other day. Zeus is a regular betta whom I've only seen overfed once or twice. Anyway, last week I came home...

  6. Sick Betta, Please help

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I got my betta fish, Rocky about 8 months ago from a pet store. He was fine until about a month ago, and I noticed he was a little clampy. He is having a hard time swimming and was sinking to the bottom of his tank a lot. I am in college and he stays home while I am gone. So I cleaned his...
  7. New Bettas

    Betta Fish Care
    I love Chuck (picture to left) and since I think I have the hang of water changes I decided to get another one. Unfortunately, I have no self control and came away from the store with 2 new crown tails and a baby. One crown tail relaxed once he got out of the little cup. The baby seemed...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Housing What size is your tank? 1.75 gallons (temporary, he's been in a 1 gallon since late October/early November though) What temperature is your tank? Well I had the Tetra submersible for up to 5 gallons in there at first and it was 74.5 degrees Fahrenheit. Now I've got one of the Marineland...
