elephant ear betta

    I have three boys, I can probably link a page that talks about them. I have been very depressed about my fish lately. Please no one give me crap for this and tell me I am awful, but one of my fish (named Sulo) is old. This is my impression from researching about old betta fish. Anyway the part...

    I've a quick question, and I'm sorry if this in the wrong thread, but I'm very fond of bettas with dark eyes, almost pitch black eyes, and all of the ones I've ever owned have that trait, regardless of the type of tail they have, or their gender. I've always wanted to own an Elephant Ear...

    Mom knows I hate foodshopping so she bribed me with a trip to the pet store, I said that if I found a nice EE I would get him and she said sure, then she took me to the store where they usually don't take care of the betta and don't have any selection. Well the first betta I saw had a bent...

    So I had this guy for about 2 weeks now. He came to me on the edge of death: emaciated, blind, trouble swimming, completely clamped, fungal infection, etc. You probably saw his progress in the "Blind, Stiff, Slimy" thread I started for his rehabilitation. He's currently on API Fungal Cure and...

    Hey-o~ so I went in to get my dog's nails done and ... lo and behold I came home with another freakin' fish. :roll: At least I have space for him now that my little girlie is in the 10gal. PetSmart gave him to me for free because he is BLIND in both eyes (and was severely clamped)!!! His cup...

    I got a new betta yesterday and his pectoral fins are a solid color but I don't know if they'd be considered big enough to be elephant ear. This pic was the best I could get of his pectoral fins. What do you guys think?

    This is my new elephant ear, I've got 3 other bettas but just wondering if should treat this guy special since the others are just veil tails. No name yet, gonna see if he makes the night before giving names xD I'm going to get a hiding place for him tomorrow since he's made it clear he wants...

    Sooo, I'm new to the betta community and I feel a bit silly. I owned a black and deep red male crown tail named Flare (he looked like fire when flared up under my old tank's red light) for about 2 years, but sadly he died recently. I currently have a grey and dark blue female crown tail named...

    My elephant ear betta, Julian: (isn't he sweet? he loves to interact) I noticed in the last couple months that his right pectoral fin was separating: I read that it's possible for bettas to tear their fins on things in the tank. He loves to spend time in the tree (pictured) and I'm...

    Hello all.. I am new to the forum so I thought I would share some pictures of my buddy Neptune. He is a 2 year old Elephant Ear. So lively and always comes to greet me when I enter my office. He watches me work, actively watches Animal Planet with me and likes to splash water on my desk when he...

    So I just noticed this last night. And I can't tell if its been ripped or bitten off. Also what should I do to treat it? There are live plants in his tank. I've also taken out the things that might have caused it. Housing What size is your tank? I'm not sure. Maybe a 16 gallon tall. What...

    Is he a plakat?

    He is the only one that will do it! Alpha wont do it at all and Spike only does it every once in a while. But here's Riezbar: And here's my favorite one! Next time I will get out my super nice camera and a bigger mirror. No more using an iPhone. Lol

    I was looking around petco because of their $1 per gallon sale and I decided to look around in the Betta area. (I knew I shouldn't have) But I saw this guy again. He was there a few weeks ago and after I had gotten Spike I kinda was wanting him. Well he was there tonight and I took him home...

    Hello! I'm new to this website and I was hoping if some of you betta geniuses could help me out with mine :-). His name is Koa and he's a beautiful Elephant Ear. He's red and white and SUPER PRETTY. But, I have put a filter in his tank (one of those 1 gallon deals) and left to go home for a...

    I "recently" got 3 betta fish, a veil tail, a double tail, and a elephant ear. All males of course. I got them around mid June.. For the past few days (and most likely longer) I've noticed that my elephant ear male's body does this weird curve thing. It's always to the same side (As far as I've...

    I'm worried about Fishie. He's still refusing to eat anything that isn't blood worms, his fins all of a sudden look like their getting smaller, and he doesn't flare up AT ALL anymore. He's still swimming around fine and when blood worms do come around he goes insane for them. But something just...

    So I bought my first elephant ear betta, and let me say he is just beautiful. But for the first week and half he refused to eat. I tried 3 different types of food and I've never owned a betta fish that wasn't a pig. I finally got him to eat and I was so happy, but he will only eat blood worms...
