    I just notice these white spots on my betta today. I am quite sure there were no such white spots when I bought the bettas ( two of them) 2 days ago. Apart from that, my betta seems to be happy. This is my first time with bettas and so I am all ears for your opinions Thanks in advance. My tank...
  2. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Recently I have noticed that my halfmoon betta fish had chunks of his tail missing. I asked someone on this website about it and they answered that it was only fin biting. Relieved, I left it alone but kept watch for any tail biting. I was checking his tail through the glass one day and noticed...

    I have a 5 gallon tank with a whisper micro filter. Originally I was going to try to cycle it, but then I realized that this filter uses disposable filter cartridges. Is it still possible to cycle it or will I need a non disposable cartridge? Also are there any that are available for this...

    Hello, I’m a proud owner of a male halfmoon betta however, I have a sneaking suspicion that he may either be biting his fins or could possibly have fin rot (that I am hoping to catch early). I have had a betta die from fin rot before and honestly I’m just a little nervous about it. Housing...

    Hey all, I got my latest betta about week ago. I got him from Aquastar71 via Aquabid. This is the first time I've bought a fish from Aquabid. So far he seems to be getting along well but in the last couple days I've noticed his dorsal spread seems to have gone down from a full half moon to more...

    My betta, Champ, has had severe fin rot. He is a twin tail betta and so it's not all the way through his fin, but he has lost a good bit of fin. I did an aquarium salt treatment with 100% water changes each time. I have now slowed down to every 3 days switching his water and adding aquarium...

    I purchased a half moon betta from Petsmart back in October. In November i noticed a slit in his tail. In a few days his fins appeared to be falling off rapidly. So far his tail was the only fin affected but a few days ago I noticed his lower fin beginning to deteriorate. He is housed alone in...
