  3. 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!

    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...
  8. 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...
  12. 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...
  15. 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...
  19. Betta Pictures
    So I've named him Kisaki! I got him today, he was marked as a female betta and I'm 99.99% sure he's a male. Since he was marked as a female I got him for a crazy cheap price! What would you say his coloration he is? I know he's an Plakat elephant ear, his tail shape is a bit odd as well, I...
  20. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I got an elephant ear male from my local petco and originally put him in a 1g filtered tank. He seemed to be reasonably healthy although a little spastic and would flare semi frequently without using his gills at his reflection but did not show any other signs of aggression. Then I moved him to...
