  1. Please Help! Betta has white fungus growing on body

    I have three bettas. Yesterday, my halfmoon(Sushi) died from what I believe was a fungal infection. It started with white, clear-ish, fungus growing out of his gills then it slowly spread pver his body within three days. He quickly became lethargic and just stayed wrapped around his heater. He...
  2. This is the second fish to pass away on me :( I need advice.

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I'm feeling really hopeless you guys. I'm by no means an experienced Beta keeper, but this shouldn't be happening right? The deceased fish pictured is Cosmo, I got him from a specialty fish store Sunday. He was lethargic with clamped fins since several hours after I put him into his new tank and...
  3. What to do Next

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi everyone! 5 months ago, I got my first betta and he died a couple of days ago. I'm not sure why as all the water parameters were fine and he showed no sign of illness until 24 hours before death. He was lethargic and wouldn't eat, but otherwise looked healthy. Anyway, I'm returning to...
  4. Sorority down 2

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello all! I have been running a sucessful sorority for about 2 years now. I bought 5 of the youngest females to start my tank. One wasn't cut out for sorority life so I traded her in. The new one I bought in was a walmart rescue, more shy yet older than the rest so who knows how long she was...

  6. How do I tell him..(neglect of tank/fish)

    Betta Fish Care
    My brother has a 130+ liter tank and hasn't been taking care of it too well.. I should not really care but this tank is actually half mine (we bought the fish, plants and needed products together). It's just more 'his' because he bought the tank (second hand one, 5 euro's with cleaning system...

    http://bettasource.com/forums/topic/1452-is-he-sick-or-just-old/#entry12025 I posted on this forum a few days ago, thinking that it was this forum. (I spent most of my time on *this* forum looking up information on betta care, I just thought the website changed or something). ANYWAY, I'm...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi All, I'm new here! Excited to finally be part of a betta community. :-) One of my 3 betas just died, and his tank (a 5-gal w/ plants, filter, ornaments) needs a thorough cleaning, esp. if I plan to get a new betta, which we all know is inevitable!! My question is: what about the sucker fish...

  12. Wal-mart fish conditions.

    Betta Chat
    Was doing a little shopping earlier in my local Wally World, and I had to of course go look over the betta's. If there's a betta in the store, I gotta check it out, while I may not have room or need another one, it's an itch you gotta scratch right? Well I strolled over to the fish area, looked...
  13. no time for goodbyes

    Betta Memorials
    Unfortunately one of my female bettas passed away recently. I didn't really get TOO attached to her and I didn't take any pictures of her, heck she didn't even have a name. But she was a really pretty black and teal veil tail female with a great personality. I have no idea how she died. One...
