  1. Betta Fish Care
    Hello! Today I have put an order in for some fish, there's four in total which I believe need some extra loving. The two girls are missing an eye. The two boys have deformed backs. One of the boys also has Swim Bladder. As far as I can tell, the deformities and missing eyes are from poor...

    I work at PetSmart, this betta arrived on the order today. He is labeled as a half moon, but something isn't right.

    I am worried that my two rescue bettas donated by a breeder to my newly started adoption agency are sick beyond help. The breeder refuses to answer my questions about their care so I cannot say if they were deformed from birth and they are slightly overfed or if there is something internal...
  7. Breeding Betta Fish
    Before this thing gets going, let me set one rule; NO ARGUING! If you do not know how to have a debate without turning it into an argument, I suggest that you just read and not post. This is a touchy subject and I want to get to the roots of it, not stay stuck on the gut reactions to taboo...
