  1. New female betta, possibly VT?

    Betta Pictures
    Hi I'm new to this forum and have been keeping bettas for about a year or so. I just got this girl from a Magoo's today and they don't exactly label their bettas well. I'm guessing she's a VT but she's pretty big compared to the ones I see at my job (Petsmart). Think there's some PK in there...
  2. New female seems strange

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hey all. I'm new to the forums and very excited to be here. I week ago I got a female betta from a pet store that is pretty bad at caring for them. She had been there a few weeks so I decided I couldn't let her stay there anymore and brought her home. She spent a week in quarantine and seemed...
  3. New young Koi girl from Petco and hello

    Betta Pictures
    Hi everyone It's been awhile since I've kept any fish or had tanks running. I lost my last beautiful healthy male over a year ago from unknown causes and I was quite upset about it. Broke that last running tank down and gave all my Pink Ramhorns to my sisterinlaw for her tanks. I've started...
  4. Need suggestions for tank companions

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello! I have a 10-gallon tank and wanted to get some ideas for tank companions for my female betta. Also, if a 10-gallon is too small to house anything but my female betta, please let me know! :smile2:
  5. Hello!

    Meet the Betta Keepers
    I've owned a few betta fish throughout my life, but never tried a forum! Excited to see what its like :smile2: I have one 10 gallon tank with a single female betta whose age I am unsure of. I also am unsure of her patterning/type of betta she is. I call her baby girl or Miss fish, for now...
  6. Identification and Conformation?

    Betta Pictures
    Hi! I'm new here and I'm fairly new to bettas (though not to fishkeeping) and am looking for a little guidance! I'd love some help identifying my female betta's pattern/fin type. Her thick white scales and "skunk stripe" indicate to me that she might be a dragon, and she has marbled...
  7. Inactive betta floating at the top of the tank

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Okay, I filled out the needed information below. Everything I had at least. I've read so many forums as of late and I really just need help. I am hopeful that everyone respects that now that I'm gaining the knowledge about bettas that I am trying to do what's best for my betta and will leave out...
  8. Female Betta Coloring

    Betta Chat
    Hey! New to the forums and had a question about the coloration of my female betta (and maybe just wanted to talk about her because I'm very excited.) I purchased the first betta I've had in 10 years two days ago mostly to have something interesting on my desk, and am completely smitten. I'm...
  9. New Female Betta Lethargic

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi guys, So I recently started a planted aquarium, and just the other day added two female bettas (yes, I realize now that only 2 females together is a controversial topic). When I first brought the girls home, they had a little bit of a tussle, but after I split them up they retreated to their...
  10. Can bettas be stressed by too much room or a sudden increase in space?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have two bettas in a ten gallon divided tank, they used to be in a divided 5 gallon tank but that didn't seem nearly big enough to me, so I upped it. My male is in heaven, he's never seemed happier. My female on the other hand... She seems frantic and well, the only way I can think to describe...
  11. Fish compatible with the Fluval Spec III?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I am in the process of re-scaping and stocking my Fluval Spec III after my male betta who was living in it passed away. I was thinking of getting a new male betta, but I am curious about what other options I may have for such a small tank that would allow me to house more than 1 fish in it, if...

  13. Help! Female Betta With Forward Facing Pectoral Fins

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi There. I recently put together a sorority and all the girls are doing really well, getting along etc. However, there is this one lady that I bought and she is a dragon scale and has horizontal stripes on her which at first I thought were stress lines but I assume it is her colour pattern as...
  14. 3.5 Gallon Betta tank. Looking to for tips!

    Planted Betta Tanks
    So I bought the "Top Fin Enchant 3.5 Gallon Tank". Currently I have my female beta living in it. I put gravel, a betta log ornament for my betta's privacy, fake plants and a filter. I want to make my tank more interesting and more lively. I was thinking about maybe putting live plants, maybe...
  15. Meet Pretty Little Amelia

    Betta Chat
    New batches of fish come in on tuesdays so I went down to petsmart today to see what came in. I was hoping there'd be some new Corydoras but instead found this pretty yellow girl. I couldn't walk away and she was a cheap little vailtail female so she came home with me instead of another catfish.

    After admiring the bettas at my LFS for the past year, I finally caved yesterday and bought Poppy. I'm not sure what kind of betta she is, but kois have always been at the top of my list.
  17. First time Female Bettas

    Betta Fish Care
    I've always been one of those people that got male Bettas, because they are so flowy and pretty, unlike their female counterpart...Or at least that's what I used to think. After Poseidon died earlier this year, I had a 10 gallon tanks that only had Otos in it, so I wanted more fish. I wasn't...

    Hello all! I currently have a Male Halfmoon betta named Bowie, and I've had him for a few months now. He's the first betta, and also the first fish, I've ever had. I'm hoping to get a nice ten gallon set up for my birthday at the end of July. What I'm trying to decide is if I should try a...
  19. What do you do with your older, smaller tanks?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Currently I have a 3 gallon with one male betta fish, but at some point in time, I really wanna upgrade to a 5.5 gallon. I'm wondering, if and when I do manage to get a bigger tank, would a 3 gallon be large enough for a female betta fish? If not then I'm trying to figure out what to do with...
  20. Aggressive Female Betta

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello everybody, A few months ago I bought a female betta and she was in a 55-gallon tank by herself for about two weeks. Somehow I ended up with another female betta and long story short the original female betta wasn't happy ( Don't worry the other female is still alive healthy and in her...
