  1. Meet the Betta Keepers
    Hey all, IMOMM here. You can call me Jen if you like. I have only been a fish mom since late September 2016, and just lost my handsome boy yesterday. Mr Maple was a bright red veiltail, bought at my local Petsmart. Not sure exactly what happened to him, as he had been fine for months before...

    Hello, I've often used this site for information but this is my first post so I hope I don't do anything that goes against the rules. I have a 10 gallon heated and planted tank. My little guy Phin McCools just past away this week. Now I am 95% sure he passed away from constipation (I left...
  3. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, I recently lost my betta to dropsy, I am really upset about it. I have read about bettas and did the research before getting my 1st from the pet shop. I just want to know if I did anything that would have caused this. I originally had him in a 3l bowl when I got him and shortly after bought...
  4. Betta Fish Care
    Recently, my first Betta fish died (not of any diseases, he was my first fish and honestly I think I mothered him to death). He wasn't in the tank long enough to start rotting or anything, but he was in there for at least an hour before I took him out of the tank. I've been keeping the filter...

    Margarine, I lost a friend today. I lost a part of my family today. I lost you today. A little over a year ago, I rescued you from a tiny betta cup. You were pale and suffering from fin rot. I took you home and gave you a new life, and in a way, you had given me new purpose. I feel as though...

    This might not be the place to post about this but I'm not sure where else to post it. I'm quite new to this community and I just got my lovely fish a few weeks ago. He had a ten gallon tank with a water heater, a filter that was kept above water to stop the snails getting into it, two snails...

    My betta died quite suddenly! This is not a eulogy, I am specifically posting to this thread because I want answers. There was very little warning, but there was some. I am a grown man but still I am quite shocked and disappointed! I have taken a few post-mortem photos (attached). I have frozen...

    I had a lot of bettas before I found this website. Simon was my favorite out of the ones I had before. Without knowing the proper techniques on breeding and put a female with him and they fought and she killed him.

    I have a ten gallon tank which I bought yesterday for a new betta who died this morning. I would like to be able to use this tank for fish later, but I'd like to be sure it's clean in case what killed my little guy was something contagious. He was bought at Petco and the water in his cup...

    Hi! So, I am a very new betta owner. He is/was my first one (I think he's dead, shut off his filter and light in case they were stressing him and will give about two hours for him to hopefully perk up), and right now he's laying on the bottom of the tank with no visible gill movement and no...
  11. Betta Fish Care
    I am new to bettas and I am feeling really bad about everything right now. I got my first white betta, Moonchild, at petsmart on Monday and put him in an unheated, unfiltered half gallon bowl (the water was conditioned) with some colored gravel, a marimo ball, and a fake plant. He didn't...

    I recently lost my very first betta, Liverpool, to a long battle of what I think was dropsy. After he died, I did the 1:20 bleach sanitation of the 10 gallon tank, replaced the filter cartridges, gravel, and plants. I cycled the tank, and went out and bought a new betta. My new betta was very...

    I have a 2.5 gallon divided tank with a heater and filter. It's one of the BettaBowl aquariums from PetSmart. I'm a college student, so I travel with my fish a lot. Divided in the tank, I had two bettas, Charlie and Saphira. In the past few weeks, Charlie has been really sick, lying on the...

    Hi, I'm very confused as to what happened. I read about that mysterious disease that is posted on here, I'm not sure if it was that or not. Did only take about 24 hours and now both Bettas are dead. They had both stopped breathing and moving yesterday, and started floating around. Draco died...

    Hello I have had 2 bettas for about a year. They live in separate 2.5 gallong tanks. I do 50% water changes (aged, conditioned water) 2x a week and a 100% change 1x a month (about 6 months ago they both got a wicked case of fin rot and this water changing schedule resolved it.) Our water is...

    Hello. I joined just to ask this question. I often come to the forum as a guest to look up things about bettas, but I couldn't find anything really pertaining to this? Not just a few hours ago, our lovely betta girl died. She had been kept in a divided ten gallon tank, but after an impulse buy...

    I just bought a new tank setup and a new betta Thursday afternoon. I washed everything with hot water and no soap, and set it up that night and let it cycle, put the new betta in late Friday night. I woke up to my dead fish this morning (monday), and it broke my heart :(. Why did he die? I...
