    I think Cooper is constipated. He has been bloated for about a week and a half. I tried not feeding him for 5 days and it hasn't helped, so I was looking into epsom salt treatments. I am wondering where to buy the proper epsom salt, what kind to get, and how much to use for how long/often?

    I just bought my first Betta, Walter, 3 days ago He's currently in a 2.5 gallon Aqueon Betta Bowl starter kit. I have a 7.5 watt heater for the tank. The tank has a filtration system, but I noticed the current seemed a little intense for my little guy, so I bought some cut to size filter...

    I'm definitely a novice when it comes to Bettas, I've only had goldfish in the past. I am also unemployed right now (job hunting), and funds are tight. I went away on a family trip and someone came and watched our cat. She "watched" my fish, but she didn't know how to really take care of it...

    I've had my Betta for about two months now. I bought him because I was told at the pet store that they were easy to keep and didn't need very much room. I bought him with a 2qt bowl and that's where he stayed for a couple of weeks. I came to find out that Bettas are not meant to be kept in a...

    Okay so this is my first betta. I've had him for about six months now, and he's been awesome. I love the little guy ((: about a week ago I noticed he was having trouble swimming. He was either sinking or putting him self under a plant so he wouldn't float. Sometimes he props himself up on...

    Hello everyone, My 5+ year old veiltail male betta hasn't been eating for going on several weeks now. He's recently bounced back from weird illness that was never able to be successfully diagnosed, or rather I should say he's nearly bounced back all the way. His behavior has returned to...

    So my crown tail sushi is always constipated. He always has a bloated belly even if he poops!!!! I've tried peas and fasting but neither of them work! So I put him in his tank with some Epsom salts. It worked. But of course it stressed him out. I've heard some people keep small amounts of it in...
