    Hey guys, I haven't been on here for quite awhile! While I was gone I got a new boy! Meet Peyton (Yes, named after Peyton Manning)! Can anyone tell me what color he is? Thanks in advance!

    Hello all, I have a turquoise veiltail named Omicron. He has a dark head, and ruby red on his ventral fins and beard. He also has two red stripes on his gills, which are only visible in good lighting. I read somewhere that red can spread over time? Wasn't sure if that applied to turquoise...

    I happened to be in Petco last night picking up some Prime, and they were unpacking a load of bettas. They had wayy more than usual, they were on an overflow rack in a separate part of the store. So I went one by one and spent about an hour looking at every one because I am obsessed :) Anyway...

    I thought he was just a yellow/orange pineapple but then this lady at the pet store told me otherwise. What do you think?
  5. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello! I am fairly new to the site, and I am not wholly sure if this kind of post can go here, but I was worried about something that I am noticing on my Betta's tail. His name is Dmetri, and he is almost four years old (or three and a half, depending on the estimate). He is a veiltail, and he...

    It's not an emergency. It's probably not a disease. So I guess it goes here. Please by all means move if it's in the wrong section. Why is my betta's belly kind of like brownish copper or something? Should I be worried? I think I've seen people commenting about this kind of thing before, but...

    IDK if this is really the right section, but I don't think there's really anywhere else, plus it feels kind of chatty and I'm just curious about it. So: why do all the elephant ear betta fish I've seen have the exact same (ok, similar) coloring? (Purpley-grey with white-ish- or something like...

    So, the original picture from aquabid that I got him from shows him like this: And he has come close to looking like that, but right now, he's looking like this: His water parameters are fine and his tank is cycled. I noticed his fins started becoming a little see-through after putting in a...

    Hello Betta lovers! I just got a betta fish this evening, and put him in a 2.5g tank. It has slow/little filtration. The water quality is normal but the water is a little hard. I read online that betta's prefer softer water, but my location's water is very hard. Will this be ok for the betta...
  10. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, my betta Bruce I've had for around 3 weeks now, I bought him from Petsmart with him not in the best conditions. He currently is in a 5 gallon tank, with both a heater and a filter. Recently I've noticed a weird, greeny/silvery coloring (not fuzzy) on and around his gills and face. I do not...
  11. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I recently bought a new betta from a pet store about 2 weeks ago. Over this time, I have noticed that the top of his head has begun to change color, and I am a bit concerned. This is what the top of his head looks like right now. And this is what it was like when I first purchased him: Is...
