  1. Forum Introduction - meet Gator

    Meet the Betta Keepers
    Hello everyone! I used to be on this forum 10 years ago at the age of 13. By the time I stopped using the forum at 18, I had 8 betta fish. My username was bettaluver4ever, but for the life of me I could not remember my password after all these years, so I just made a new account. I have pretty...
  2. What can I breed a Delta Tail male with?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    The delta tail gene is recessive, so would breeding a male delta tail male with a crowntail female just result with crowntails? Or rejects?
  3. Hello!

    Meet the Betta Keepers
    Well, this is my second post on here (my first being a cry for help for a very sick betta I tried to rescue from Petsmart...he made it one week, sadly, but I did everything I could). I came across my second love (named Leviathan) at walmart of all places (I'll include his pic). I believe he is...
  4. Breeding HalfSun or Crowntail

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Sadly my earlier breeding attempt failed and both my veiltails died. After burying both in my backyard, I did some research and decided to either breed a crowntail spawn or try to breed a halfsun. Because crowntails are recessive (at least from what I've seen) and half moons are dominant, is...
  5. Betta Newbie w/ Questions

    Betta Fish Care
    So, as the subject implies, I'm a complete newbie to the 'Betta Life' :-) Last night I rescued a beautiful blue crowntail male betta from PetSmart (I seriously wanted to cry seeing them all in little cups!!!) After buying the initial 1.8 gal tank (and THEN educating myself on standard tank...
  6. Hello all! just created an account! Any tips for preventing algae growth?

    Meet the Betta Keepers
    I've had bettas as a kid, but I always kept them in a single gallon bowl. After having a betta last year that developed fit rot, I set up a 5 gallon tank for him, but then the tablets I used to treat the fit rot killed him! But not to be sad, I mourned him and soon purchased a new betta. My...

  8. Possible fungal infection?!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    This morning when I woke up I went to check on and feed my crowntail betta, Mocha, when I noticed he wasn't swimming to the top to greet me like he does every day. I found him hidden inside his little cave and when i finally managed to coax him out of hiding, I saw that his forehead had a weird...

A pleco, two neon tetra, two neon danios, a flame tetra, and a long fin black tetra. The tetra, aside from the flame tetra, were my sister's...

    Betta Spawn Logs
    I spawned this pair yesterday, 16/5. The male: My good pics of the female are on my other harddrive so here's a so-so pic of her after spawning. There's a rip in her caudal. They're both about 4 months old. Here's a video of their first introduction...
  11. SIP - King

    Betta Memorials
    King was my crowntail betta. He was a silly fella and would perk up when I sat at my desk and did schoolwork. He made studying for finals more fun! Although he are his first snail buddy, Gary, who died, he was friendly to Slowski, the next snail. King survived car rides in a critter keeper in a...
  12. SIW Apple.

    Betta Memorials
    Well, a week ago my precious Apple died. I guess he was a bit old.. He was doing just fine (I checked the water, everything is ok), but he was getting shy and didn’t want to flare or make bubble nests anymore.. at first I thought that it could be because of the other female bettas (too much...
  13. Crowntail betta with fin rot

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My brother's crowntail betta has fin rot. We treated it once about a month ago and he seemed to be doing better, but it has returned and I want to know what suggestions you might have to help him? We tried Tetra LifeGuard already. I suspect the issue might be a water issue, because my brother...
  14. Bubble on Betta's fin?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So my Crowntail betta, Alexandr, has had weird bubble things on his anal fin for a while, and I looked online, but hardly anyone had this problem, and any similar ones, people didn't know what it was. They keep disappearing and reappearing again, sometimes in small clusters, and sometimes in one...

  16. Meet Darcy :))))

    Betta Pictures
    Here's a pic of the crowntail I've had for two weeks named Darcy! I may have not had him too long but I think he likes me because whenever I come into the room he swims up to my face. He's super energetic and I absolutely adore him. I have him in a 3 gallon half moon tank with a marimo named...
  17. Hey! I'm new here. How is everyone?

    Meet the Betta Keepers
    Hi! I just joined today (2/20/16) and I want to tell people about myself. I own 2 bettas, a green male crowntail who I got in 2013 named Peacock Ripjaw (my sister chose his second name), and a red male veiltail betta who I got in 2016 named Aaron Jewels. Peacock has started to discolor from age...
  18. My new boys

    Betta Pictures
    It's been about a year since I lost my last betta, but I couldn't resist any longer. I divided my 10 gallon tank into two sections awhile ago in preparation for this day. Walked into Petco this evening. Oh, there were so many beautiful fish...who were outside my budget. :cry: But I managed to...

  20. Doubletail crowntail?

    Betta Chat
    I was just wondering if my betta is a mix of a double tail and a crowntail? I haven't really seen bettas like that before and I can't seem to find many pictures of a doubletail crowntail mix online he wouldn't flare when he was swimming around which is when it's really noticeable but then he...
