    This is my first betta fish; I got him just a few weeks ago. I noticed yesterday and even more last night that his right pectoral fin looks sort of damaged. Like part of the "skin" has detatched from the fin structure and now sticks together near the base of his fin. (Having difficulty...
  5. Peas: Good vs. Bad???

    Betta Fish Care
    Quick question! Are peas very bad for betta fish? I've been treating my fish with blanched pea halves & quarters, & it has been working well with his belly! I don't have any live daphnia nearby, but I would love to! I know that helps with bloating... So, back to the real ? --- I read somewhere...

  10. Tank woes and resulting injury

    Betta Fish Care
    Moved my betta into the 16-gallon, because it makes him happy. Arrangements are in the works to get him a nice five-gallon for when school starts. Thing is, he's got an injury- I think a piece of the decor was too bristle-like. He now has a long cut along his back fin. Approximately the...
