  7. Split in the caudal fin

    Betta Fish Care
    Today I received 2 new males through the post (1 HM and 1 HMPK) and the HM seems quite stressed from the travelling. He would float near the surface and now and then would swim erratically. Is this normal and do they usually recover from the rough travels? The HMPK has a split straight down...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I recently redid my 10 gallon tank throwing out my sand and replacing that with Mexican beach pebbles and planted with an Anubias Nana, Lucky Bamboo, and a Marimo. And my betta loves it! He's been swimming around so enthusiastically with his fins flowing proudly and I really like the natural...

    Betta Pictures
    When I first got this fish, he was a marbled blue violet, I've had him for 7 months and now he's basically all blue violet. Is this the result of color enhancers?

  14. Betta with Fin rot - Appropriate Treatment?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello! I've been keeping track of my betta ever since he started getting a white-ish fuzzy film around his fins. I got some aquarium salt and started putting the recommended amount in the water every time that I did a water change and the film went away. Now his fins are growing more and more...

  16. what kind of half moon is he?

    Betta Pictures
    I bought my baby, Oliver at my LFS as a halfmoon. But he was definitely not full grown at the time. (When I got him, he was too small even to fit Omega One pellets in his mouth if that gives you any idea!) Anyway, I know that he is a halfmoon for sure, because of his 180 spread when he flares...

  18. Is he really a halfmoon?

    Betta Pictures
    I am not sure if it is just me, but his spread doesn't look like 180 degrees. I got him for Christmas, and was going to use him as a breeder in the summer for a DTCT line, hopefully with some Halfmoon spreads in the mix. There was another HMDT that caught my eye when I was picking them, and he...

  20. severe tail biting

    Betta Fish Care
    I have a halfmoon betta who's bitten his tail so much he looks like a sickly crowntail. He started biting after I moved him to a five gallon tank (he was originally in a three gallon). He's always had water conditioner, a weak filter to keep the oxygen levels up and gunk levels down, a heater...
