  1. betta with SBD not eating daphnia

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My crowntail suffers from chronic SBD, most likely genetic as I've tried literally everything on the list for the past month and a half other than daphnia. (Peas, epsom salt, bacterial/parasitic medication, fasting.) My last resort is daphnia before I ultimately may have to put him to sleep...
  2. Feeding Sigma

    Betta Fish Care
    So far I've been feeding pellets most days and bloodwords, probably more often than I should. But, after doing some reading I've figured out this can cause more damage than I originally thought. What kind of frozen shrimp should I purchase for my betta? Should I give him some daphnia because...

  4. Administering daphnia to bloated betta

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Before I learned here that it's not always recommended, I fed our bloated (but otherwise seemingly just-as-normal) betta tender cooked cooled pea over the last two days, having fasted him for three days. His bloat has subsided, but not gone away. I'm inclined to fast him a few more days and...
  5. Bloated maybe?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Not really an emergency, since he's still acting and looking normal. Moby has been eating enthusiastically, though he rejected pellets for flakes, oddly enough. He pooped the first few days I had him, but then a couple days ago he had this really big one, like bigger than I thought a fish as...
  6. New fish, possible swim bladder issues

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So my husband fell for this pretty blue betta while we were picking up stuff for my son's new orange betta. (This is a trend for us, we always do two of everything). So we get the new guy home, set up his tank, adjust him to the water, pop him in, and boom, he pops right back up to the top. We...
  7. Swim bladder disorder-almost 2 weeks

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I moved my male Betta out of my cycled heated community tank when he had trouble swimming normally. He is in a 2 qt container, I do water chg daily. I now know I should never have fed the fish froz blood worms because he pigged out. I fasted him 2 days, fed inside of a froz cooked pea which he...

I was reading it and it says its very good for fish including bettas. So I bought it and gave eatch betta a small sprinkle of it. Well they went ga ga over this...
  11. Daphnia as food?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi, my question is about daphnia. My betta currently has swim bladder problems and I heard daphnia could help him out. Is it okay to feed him the frozen variety, or is it better live? Also, are there any other things that could help, because I've fast him for two days already and he's still kind...
