  1. Betta Food Issue!

    Betta Fish Care
    Long post warning. Was not 100% sure which forum this fit into so hoping this is the right spot. My new guy Dracomalfoy has a smaller mouth than my others and thus does the chew-spit-repeat method when eating his pellets all my bettas share. I havent yet had to opportunity to get to the store in...

    Betta Fish Care
    My white twin tail halfmoon male betta has always been very weak and mild. Even in a crystal clear 80 degree tank, he's not going to explore his tank or swim around playing much. I've bought him toy mirrors, he doesn't like playing. He's in a 6 gallon, heated, filtered tank with live and...

I recently bought my first fish a few days ago (Saw the poor thing in a cup that someone had just left in the stationary section at the store that I work at so I decided to bring him home).

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, my betta fish Severus has been having some trouble eating lately. He definitely wants to eat, but it's like he can't. I feed him usually about 4 omega one pellets a day (broken up over hours of time, so like I'll feed him one pellet then come back 3 hrs later and feed him another and so...
  5. Betta won't eat. Could he be sick?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have a male betta in a 2.5 gallon tank. A few days ago, he would go up to the floating food pellet, but go to bite at the tablet, but miss. After he would miss, he would leave the pellet and come back a few minutes later. This was kinda aggravating to me, so I knocked on the glass and he...

    My massive betta is not eating. He just got put into a new tank because I thought that a 5 gallon was not quite big enough for him because he just keeps growing. He is even blowing bubble nests the size of california. (not really lol). They are actually about 1 foot long, 6 inches wide, and 1...

    Hey guys! So my Betta fish has pretty bad fin rot at the moment Today I started with the Tetra Treatment (I've used this before and it's worked amazingly!). I dropped the little pill in and left it there to dissolve. A couple minutes late I went to check on how well it was dissolving and...

  11. Betta fish won't eat

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I got my new betta fish three days ago, and he doesn't eat. I've tried feeding him with regular betta food (the balls) and with bloodworms. Sometimes he swims up and sniffs the food, then swims away. If it sinks, he'll occasionally follow it down, stare at it sitting at the bottom, and then swim...
