  1. betta covered in green growth

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I work at a pet store, and we noticed the other day that one of our female bettas is covered in a green algae-like substance. She seems very lethargic and I am trying to see what I can do to help her. Unfortunately, the bettas are kept in horrible conditions (no heaters, SMALL containers, and...
  2. Adelburn is getting older too

    Betta Pictures
    I showed some pictures of takumi I figured I could do the same with adelburn! He is as mean as ever, but then again that's compared to takumi who I feel is a bit overly friendly. But whatever. We had an incident with his tail a while ago so it's not what it used to be :/ BUT I am getting better...

  4. Green Betta

    Betta Pictures
    So when I bought my betta he was a very pale brown with a teal outline on his fins. After putting him in a 10 gallon tank for few weeks with a heater he really changed his colors. I've heard true green betta fish are considered rare, but how about just green betta? I feel as if this betta is...

  6. Algae...good, bad, or irrelevant?

    Betta Fish Care
    So...from what I've read thus far, Algae doesn't appear to be a big issue in a tank. In fact, all sources point to it being a good sign that the tank is cycling. My 5 gallon tank has started to develop green algae. Do I need to remove the algae? Is it going to cause any issues? Is it really...

  8. My new betta!

    Betta Pictures
    Earlier this week, I bought my first betta since I was a chid. He's GORGEOUS. I wasn't sure about taking home a fish until I saw him! He's perfect. He's small (1.5 inches) and dark green. I'm wondering if he'll grow or not.
  9. For BL2033

    Betta Pictures
    Here's the female, photos are BAD so sorry! What do you think of her? The lighting is dim and yellowish, it doesn't show the pretty blue green of her fins at all. She also was a little stressed so the color isn't very deep.
