    Hi everyone! I have a betta fish named Piggy, I've had him for about 2 months now and he has become my best friend! We had issues with the cycling of the tank, his fins (I thought he had fin rot, I was using the Fish Keeper formula and they improved immensly), and just the new mom stress of...

    About 6 weeks ago we noticed our Betta Fish (Sideshow Bob) looked ill and had a hole in his fin. After researching we learnt this was likely fin rot & took recommended next steps: more thoroughly cleaning his bowl, using a 'Bettafix' solution, etc. While SB does seem to have improved in this...

    It's only the one, his other fin is spread out like a fan while the one pictured looks twisted and smushed. He's active and eats fine. He's been in a 7 gallon tank with a heater and filter for four days now. I thought if it was clamped fins that better conditions would fix it, is it something...

    So we recently got this betta fish (named Zion, I’ve attached a picture) around one week ago - we noticed that when we got him he seemed in pretty rough shape from the previous home - we noticed that some of the top fins seemed ragged and was wondering if it was fin rot or torn fins and if there...

    Has anyone ever seen any color change like this in a betta??! I've had my betta for almost two months now. He seems really healthy. He is always actively exploring his 5 gallon planted tank and is fed twice a day except on his fasting day. Over the last two weeks I noticed his anal fins turning...

    Disclaimer: I know the tank is too small and he should have a heater, but I’m a broke college student and no one else wanted him, so I’m doing the best I can with what I’ve got. Symptoms and Treatment: Photos at the bottom. I rescued this fish from my brother, who’d kept it in the tiny plastic...

    I recently put my betta Merik in a 5 gallon fluval spec aquarium. It’s great, he loves it- I’ve read a million reviews on how this tank is great for bettas. I also read reviews from people talking about how their bettas love to suction themselves to the grate where the filter is - the setting...
