    Betta Fish Care
    I absolutely adore bettas! I have had three total in the last several years, but have ultimately lost them all to diseases. Well, my girlfriend just got me a new betta a few weeks ago since we were moving in together, and I love him to death! However, he seems a little dumb compared to my last...

    Hello, everyone. I haven't been on this site for a couple of months now, since I got Asteria, and I wanted to start a journal (even though it might be a bit boring, because I currently have only one fish). I guess I should start at the beginning. The Introduction At first I wanted a...

    Here are the resuls of Ciel's first photoshoot. I didn't want to stress him out too much since I used a light he wasn't used to so it was very quick, but I am very proud of the first photo. :)

    I have a EE Black dragon betta and a black head copper female. I only have one female right now which is her but I'm not sure if I should just wait for a better female option or to just go for this pair. My plan is to breed the offspring back to him then later on out cross ((to prevent...
  10. Halfmoon is tearing his fins to shreds, nothing seems to help

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello. I purchased a halfmoon betta almost 4 months ago and have recently run into some slow but steadily progressing tail biting. Last time I had a halfmoon betta he also bit his fins and he eventually had almost no tail or dorsal fin left. It was awful. :'c This fellow is on a similar path...

    Betta Chat
    Hello everyone! This is my new betta! I was just curious what his coloring is called. Does he look like he will marble? His container said Halfmoon Betta but his fin is not a 180 degree spread? Does that mean he is a delta tail? Also his eyes are a little bit popped out, is that popeye...

  16. M Red/Purple DoubleTail x F Blue Halfmoon

    Betta Spawn Logs
    Hello, This was my first time spawning bettas and the goal was to see what colors I would get if I mixed a purple-red male with a blue female. These were common petstore bettas which made this experience all the more fun- I had NO IDEA what color combinations I was really going to get! :smile2...
  17. Please Critique My Male

    Breeding Betta Fish
    All recent. He’s in great condition right now. I think he may have marble genes. One thing about the photos is they don’t show his pearl incandescence that is really striking in person. It gives off a well, pearly, shimmery tint to his body. I’ve never seen anything like it. I plan on breeding...

  19. Is dragon scale gene recessive or dominant?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Thinking about crossing a dragon(thick white scales on body, large red fins) with a non-dragon(metallic turquoise with red fins). Both are halfmoons. Is this likely to produce more dragons? Or is the trait recessive? Ideally I'd want some dragons, not all of the fry have to be dragons, but I...

    Hello everyone, I'm totally new to fish keeping but I've caught the elusive "betta bug" since my Aunt got me very special present for Christmas all the way back in 2015 (not that far lol). She handed me a good size vase with a betta resting in the roots of a lucky bamboo plant sticking out the...
