    Hello! Im brand new to the betta fish community , and any help would be appreciated. I had a bad case of algae take over my tank, which i tried to fix by diming lights and feeding my fish less often (my betta is in a community tank with 10 other schooling fish). Ive never had an issue with them...

    hello, I looked at my betta today and I saw that his fins looked torn. I saw a big (a really big one.) tear but I couldn't get a picture since he was moving around a lot. There's another tear that isn't as big and there's a smaller tear. and you can also see the tips of his fins looking rough...

    Hey again! So I’ve posted a number of times about my betta’s fin nipping, and I have had aquarium salt recommended a few times now, and I guess I just wanted to make a post on it to get some different opinions on it! He is getting older and still has torn up fins from his incessant nipping, so...

    Hi! New here. This is my first post. I just started a betta sorority yesterday and I'm curious if their behavior seems normal. I left them in small tanks close to each other a couple weeks then floated them in the tank overnight before releasing. There seems to be some fine nipping but I'm not...

    My Betta's fins have been getting more and more tattered recently, despite being in a big 2.5 gallon tank. Has he been fin nipping? I'm pretty sure there is nothing sharp in the tank that could catch his fins. Here's the best picture I could get of him.

    Long story short, I got my betta, Blushi, about 4 months ago and I kept him in a bowl. It seemed like he was unhappy so I moved him into a 10g filtered tank. I had no knowledge of the nitrogen cycle then before it was too late and I saw he had developed fin rot presumably from ammonia toxicity...

    I've recently brought a Betta from my LPS with slight damage from the filtration system they were using. For some reason they had the males displayed next to each other so they were constantly flaring and tiring themselves out only to get stuck in the filtration (It appeared unusually strong)...

    Hello! After researching a little more I have realized that my pet store may have misinformed me about keeping a dalmation molly. I have since learned that mollies do best in a minimum of 20g. However she is pretty small. Anyone know how big dalmations get?? I have her and 3 bronze cories in a...

    So Sebastian made the trip to school fine and was totally fine the first week here. During the weekend before last he went on a tail bitting spree and ate the rest of his dorsal fin that was remaining from his last nomming experience and the upper part of his tail. I could only start a salt...
