    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So I came home to find that my betta's fins are in complete shreds and I've noticed that there is some greenish/yellow/grey discoloration in the areas that are most severely damaged. It looks like his fins are disintegrating/decaying. This is mostly on his caudal fins. My betta is a male...

    Hello, A few months ago I bought a cellophane double tail. Well, I discovered shortly after that he is actually marble, and he has since changed colour and become a beautiful deep green.

    Hello fellow betta lovers, I recently found this little cutie at Petco. I hate how they keep the bettas in such little cups and never seem to look after them. Each time I go, it seems as if at least half of the bettas are dead in their cups by the end of the week. :( Anyway, here is my little...
