    Hi everyone! I recently adopted a new betta! His name is Santino - Sonny for short! He is named after the eldest Corleone son in The Godfather as his predecessor (may he Swim in Peace) was named Vito. He was sold as an “elephant ear”and I do LOVE how fast his little fins move! He has been...
  2. Betta Fish Compatibility
    I just received a new betta as a gift, she's absolutely adorable and very tiny: so I'm assuming she's a baby? I was told she's an elephant ear, and she is so so gorgeous!!! (the pics don't do her any justice 😅) I've had Asami, partial crowntail, for 6 months now. She is fully grown and has...

    EE Female X Cosmo HMPK Male I will post pictures of the Female tomorrow. Has anyone ever spawned a similar pairing? I would love to hear your experiences. :smile2:
  4. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi guys, I recently graduated from college and started moving back home on Sunday (5/15). I brought my Betta who I've had for a few months at my apartment with me and got him all settled into his new home. I noticed yesterday however, that he has two new tears in his fins. For anyone who...

    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!
  6. Betta Fish Care
    Hey everyone! So I've had a 5 gallon tank up and running for a few months now, and today I finally stopped by Petco and picked out a new betta :) I was at the store a few days ago and they only had about 7 bettas available, and when I went today the same ones were still there and they hadn't...

    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 everyone! I'm new to the community, but, I'm not new to the wonderful world of bettas. Anyway, about a year ago my mom surprised me with my blue/green VT, Sherlock, as a fry and I've had him ever since. Now, three days ago I went with my brother to buy him crickets for his Pacman frog and I...
  9. 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...

    I was told this male betta was an elephant ear betta, but I heard elsewhere that "elephant" or "dumbo ears" are just a genetic mutation. I was hoping someone could help me clarify that and/or tell me what type of betta he is. These are the best pictures I have of him. Thanks!

    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.

    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...
  13. Planted Betta Tanks
    So yesterday I got my tank all set up and planted, currently there's not much in there plant-wise, I have three Wendtii Greens, one anacharis, and a moss ball. It's a ten-gallon tank with soil in the bottom, gravel, and a piece of driftwood (the moss ball is loosely tied to it until it holds on...

    I go to petsmart once a week, I always of course look at the bettas!! And usually bring one home lol. Im just wondering is that all elephant ear/dumbo betta fish at petsmart has only small tails???! I've been going to petsmart for couple years but started getting interested in elephant ears...
  16. Show Bettas
    I think they both look quite good compared to their respective standards, though I'm unsure about the leading edge of Ren's dorsal fin being too rounded. I think Kamui looks like a better show prospect in all honesty, but I am still very new. They are both from Thai breeders on aquabid and will...

    So excited! I bought two beautiful boys I hope to show and breed on aquabid recently. Ren is a Monster Fancy Devil HM and is named after a character from a japanese visual novel I love called Dramatical Murder. He looks like he might go blue on me and he just looks like a Ren! Kamui is an...

    So I called petco and found out that they have an Elephant ear delta tail. I have liked them but didn't have the money to get one when I setup my tank. Now they are going out of business and are selling there bettas 40% off and I have money to get him but have questions about caring for one. He...

    Our local petco is going out of business in a little over a week and they are marking down all there bettas and I called to find out what they have and they have a Elephant Ear delta tail I think but it is some sort of Elephant Ear. They are asking $20 but are taking a 40% discount since they...
