    Hi everyone! My 10-gallon tank is finally cycled and I am ready to buy my betta! I love dumbo ears but many of them I have seen are labeled dumbo half-moon. I am worried about getting a betta that has oversized pectoral fins and is a half-moon because I think they would have a hard time...
  3. Betta Spawn Logs
    Hello Everyone, It has been nearly 20 years since I have done my first successful Betta Spawn as I left the hobby aside during this time I had no time or resources to attempt this again. So, here I am with a nearly ready couple to attempt this again! Why 'Nearly'!!! Because the male seems...

    Well, he wasn't what I went looking for at all, but who could resist this goofy looking guy? So Admiral went into the 20 long community (where he's thriving) and Norbert got his own 5 gallon. After hiding and resting up the first two days he's now full of energy and Mr. Personality!

    Look at this beautiful boy I won at an Auction from Fishchick Aquatics (Jodi-Lea Matheson) I'm so excited, I'm already trying to think of a name for him! Any suggestions? He should arrive in 2 days. My 7.3G tank is looking quite empty since I've moved Callisto to his old 2.5G home! :-P
  7. Betta Fish Care
    Hello Bettafish community, I've been handling bettas for a good amount of time, and I've never had this experience with a boy who's fins won't heal. I come from mostly a ciclid background, but have fallen in love with several of the wild-betta types. On that note, the kids really like the...

    I have been having a terrible week and happened to be in PetCo to window shop the day they got a shipment. Well, we all know how that goes. Left this guy there, went home, and then drove back right before they closed to pick him up because I caved. Actually, there's a bit of a story: my...

    Hi there, I am new to this forum and so far I am loving it but I do have a question about my male dumbo betta, I bought him about a month ago from a local fish store, when I purchased him and put him in his tank, he would always seem very sad, and I don't know... floppy?! As if he is weak, I've...

  11. Betta Fish Care
    Hello, nearly a month ago, my little brother begged for a female betta. With permission granted, he was allowed to purchase one and the proper setup with his own money. I helped him through the process. We went to PetSmart as its the nearest pet store since LFS seems to not be a thing in my...
  12. Betta Fish Marketplace
    Hello! So I am absolutely in love with dumbo bettas, problem is here in Canada my petsmart and other LFS dont sell them. I cant find any for sale and I'd prefer not to buy from Aquabid because of the high prices. If anyone has or knows someone who has Dumbos I would love to chat. Preferably in...

    Hey guys! I have a dumbo betta that's a tail biter and his tail is healing fantastically, but when I bought him I noticed that he may have chewed one of his pectoral (dumbo ear) fins. Do dumbo betta pectoral fins grow back? I haven't seen any new tissue forming at all.
  14. Betta Chat
    IDK if this is really the right section, but I don't think there's really anywhere else, plus it feels kind of chatty and I'm just curious about it. So: why do all the elephant ear betta fish I've seen have the exact same (ok, similar) coloring? (Purpley-grey with white-ish- or something like...
  15. Betta Fish Care
    Hi all! For Christmas I treated myself to the betta of my dreams:lol:. Fryderyck is a dumbo delta tail boy and I knew when I bought him he looked like a tail biter (he had a chunk missing, but it was healing and growing). Last week Fryderyck started tail biting, he's healing up now but I still...

    This unnamed fish lived for nearly 7 months after I rescued him from PetSmart, blind, starved, and infected with a fungus. He finally succumbed to dropsy this evening, but he fought for his life for a long time. After his rescue his fungal infection was cured within a month and his sight was...
