  1. Wolfgang's Memorial

    Betta Memorials
    Wolfy, you were one of my favorite fish I ever had. I will miss you flaring at me when I walk into the room. I will miss the games we used to play like folllow-my-finger, and jumping for food. I will miss giving you treats on saturdays and I will even miss cleaning your tank. You were so...
  2. Sudden Baby Betta Death

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, I had my baby betta fish die today, and I am very worried since I have no idea why. For background information, I decided to use some of the money I had saved from working this summer to buy a second betta, since I love having bettas and having one during college has done a lot for my...
  3. Help!!! Fish sinking and dying!!!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I don't know what is going on, I have a community, and last week one of my Bettas died, and today I just witnessed one of my guppies died. I don't know what is going on, I need to figure this out before I lose more. I had two female bettas, they were seperated in the tank, Betta that died...
  4. Filter Ideas?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hey folks, My girlfriend's co-worker gave us a tank (Top Fin Aquascene 180 3.5 Gallon Aquarium) because she moved, it's this one here, and recently my rescue crown tail died in it (along with the ghost shrimp he was mostly eating). He was sucked up into the filter it came with, so I'm thinking...
  5. Cause of Death?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    While driving me to school today, my mom told me that when she was feeding Zuko this morning, he wouldn't eat and was acting very lethargic. I told her to add some seachem to his water when she was home at lunch(since I had forgotten to put some in the night before), but when she got home, he...
  6. Sterilizing Driftwood After Death from Disease?

    Planted Betta Tanks
    Good morning, everyone. I got a betta earlier this week who unfortunately died this morning. :( We never really figured out what was wrong with him and I guess he was too far along in the disease to really be helped. Anyway, I have a lovely piece of driftwood in the tank, and I tied some java...
  7. Fish died unexpectedly after water change, do I clean the tank

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    My fish died unexpectedly after a water change last night (RIP Krijger :cry:) My question is should I start the tank again? Heres a little info on the cleaning haha I had to clean my tank because of a dead snail (so obviously pretty high nitrogen compounds), I also added (cleaned obviously) new...
  8. Questions

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    My brother had 2 bettas. He took good care of them for a while but they died while I was away at college and he isn't interested in having anymore. He told me I could have his old tanks. They are both filtered and have heaters which is great. the only problem is that he was dumb and never...
  9. S.I.P Eric

    Betta Memorials
    I remember the day when I got you as a gift and got to choose which fish I would take home. You being the darkest of them all I brought you home to find out that you were instead the brightest one of them all. I'm sorry I wasn't ready to properly treat you the way a proper fish should be taken...
  10. Please help me with my zombie fish!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My roommate's cat somehow knocked my tank onto the floor early this morning. It took a minute to find poor Daffy on the floor, but soon I got him set up in a little med area. At first he looked very dead, but after about an hour, he started moving again! The problem is, he might have been...
  11. Clove Oil

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello. My beautiful betta, Takeshi, has been battling dropsy for a while now and seems near his end. :( His belly is incredibly swollen and his scales are pineconing. He spends most of his time at the bottom of his tank, face-first into the rocks, and struggles to eat. I tried treating him with...
  12. How to clean fish tank after it passed

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Unfortunately I have to start this post by saying my beautiful betta fish, Sir Bubbles, passed this weekend. After a long 3 months battling fin rot (or possibly columnaris, never really could figure it out) I decided it was time to put him down. Now that's it been a few days I've started to...
  13. SIP Ben...

    Betta Memorials
    So yesterday (Sunday) lunch time, I actually witnessed my Ben dying, I didn't realize at first that I had watched him die but I was too late, after I watched him die which I thought was just him spazzing out I quickly got his hospital tank all ready for him and went to scoop him out to find him...
  14. Nigel lost to Dropsy/Internal malfunction

    Betta Memorials
    On the 25th of November, 2014, my very first aquatic friend is no longer any more. He succumbed to extreme bloating and dropsy, but seemed to heal slightly then showed me he completely is incapable of activity anymore. Knowing all this was just making his life a misery, I had no choice but let...
  15. Disinfecting sponge filter after a death

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    My little guy that I had for three weeks died the other night... I had him in with a sponge filter right around the time he showed symptoms of being sick, so I know the filter needs to be sterilized. I'm just not really sure how to do it. I would get a new one, but this unit is brand new and it...
  16. SIP Boaz

    Betta Memorials
    I lost my Boaz about a few weeks ago, and I'm still a bit upset. He was the first betta I'd had since I was just little, and my first blue betta. (even though he wasn't completely blue). (sorry about the filter, the picture is from my instagram) He had terrible finrot, but he took his own...
  17. Swim Along The Stair Barrier

    Betta Memorials
    Talk about lost fish here, the good times you shared with them, and the new fish you've gotten. My Kai died, but there's a different thread if you want to read that. My condolences to all fish owners who've lost a betta.
  18. Kai, You Were Loved

    Betta Memorials
    Kai died. I can't be certain of how long it's been. I'd like to say a year, but I'm not so sure of that. Less, but I don't know. His crimson fins always flowed behind him with the grace of the fully matured Veil Tail he was. Not a rip or tear flawed his perfection. And though he was...
  19. Is my Betta dying?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello there. I believe my Betta, Neptune, is dying and need some advice to see if it is something I have done or just age :( I've always taken very good care of him, but the past week he has been very sluggish and slow, rarely coming up to the surface to eat anymore. The tank I had him in was...
  20. Pale fins to body rot in 9 hours

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Doktor Mabuse had some fin rot for the past week. Starting on Friday, I've been treating him with aquarium salts (I used BattaFix before, but I am displeased with the results and some things I've learned since). I left for work today, and when I returned a slightly transparent section of his fin...
