    Betta Fish Care
    The first betta fish that I got about 6 months ago died a few days ago and I don't understand what I did wrong. He used to live in a 30l (about 8gal) Mirabello newa tank, the pump, heater, light and 2 filters came with it, I only had to add the media to the pump. I cycled the tank before...

He was...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    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...
  9. Hercules

    Betta Memorials
    Hercules, less than 120 minutes after my sister had settled him into his new tank, had died a sudden and unexpected death. But it ended up being her fault because apparently she had dumped him in probably less than room-temp water and... Long story short, don't do that. :\

    Betta Chat
    ... or perhaps not so mysterious. I'm hoping to find out what may have killed my betta, Carl. Carl was a veil finned betta, of unknown origin. He was supplied by the college as part of a study in my biology class, about two years ago, regarding the agnostic displays of male bettas. He was...

    My best friend moved away about a month ago and I inherited her betta, Bluey. He was already a few months old with her and she got him at Pet Club earlier this year... so I don't think he is more than 6 months old. Two nights ago, I heard a bit of crash while I was asleep. I had ear plugs on...

But I do shop there for other things, I've been there a few times in the past month or so and always go to the pet section to look at the betas and buy toys or accessories for my two dogs. I scanned every betta and 100%...
  17. Shock?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Not sure if it's shock or not. My friend did a water change earlier today, about a couple hours ago, and he randomly started doing weird things. I can only go by what she told me, since I wasn't there, but he started out by laying on the bottom of the tank and then he started "flopping around."...

    So about 2-3 months ago, my friend's guinea pig died so another friend of ours got her a male HM (since PetSmart was out of Guinea pigs). He sits there in a one gallon bowl with basically nothing and a once a week water change. When I told her he needed more than that, she said she was bored of...
