  1. First time Female Bettas

    Betta Fish Care
    I've always been one of those people that got male Bettas, because they are so flowy and pretty, unlike their female counterpart...Or at least that's what I used to think. After Poseidon died earlier this year, I had a 10 gallon tanks that only had Otos in it, so I wanted more fish. I wasn't...
  2. New outlook

    Betta Fish Care
    I hope this is where this post belongs. I'm just writing about my own personal experience. After growing up with pet fish, I never realized the kind of care they needed. You'd get a Betta (or a Gold Fish) slap it in a bowl and be amazed if it lived over a year. I now have my first tank and...
  3. OH WOW! 3D Bubble Nest

    Betta Chat
    So my tank has gone through a few changes, which includes tank mates (2 Neon (survivors of 10) and 2 Otos), new gravel, real plants (a ton of Cabomba, couple swords, and some moneywart). I haven't seen Poseidon make any bubble nest for about a month. and with all these changes I wasn't sure if...
  4. Process of tail growth. :D

    Betta Pictures
    So in early January Poseidon started to get fin rot, and after some salt baths, and placing him into a 10 gallon, heated tank, with the proper amount of water changes, he started getting better. I think his tail has a little more growth left, but this is how he is so far. :) A week after I...

  6. Bubble Nest!

    Betta Pictures
    So i was just about to go to bed, went to say goodnight to Poseidon, when i noticed he built a bubble nest! Im so happy!! I haven't gotten a heater yet, and a light is in the mail, but he's happy. :D i guess going from a 1.2 gallon to a 10 gallon was a good move :)
  7. Helping my new Betta feel at home!

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    For Christmas I bought my son a fish tank. It's 30gallons and has a few fish in it so far. (2 platties, 2 black mollies, 4 serpae tetra and a tri-color shark -- yes, I know he'll have to go to a bigger tank when he's bigger.) They all came with the tank when I bought it on Kijiji. So I've had...

    Betta Chat
    I just added my female blue beta into my 10 gallon. She was in my 2.5 tank for the past 3 days, and after yesterday night she seemed sick and miserable. So tonight I was faced with a decision add my healthy female white fish or my blue possible sick female fish to my new 10 gallon. I was crying...

(I also wrote a poem in a fit of feels in the point of view of a fish and...

  15. Meet My Alice

    Betta Pictures
    This is Alice. I got her Monday 6/17/2013. She is a crown tail female. I have to say she is the most happiest and exciting fish I've ever had. She just swims and swims and when I go close to her she just stares at me waving her fins. She is the cutest thing ever. I thought I'd share her love and...

  19. Can i cover the filter intake with a sponge?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Basically i moved my betta to a 5 gallon because his fin got ripped either attacked by tankmates, self inflicted or because the filter was too strong for him, i don't know. I bought this new filter, it says for delicate tropical fish but it seems too strong for the betta as when he passes by...

    Ok so this is how I originally found the site.. I was freaking out when I caught him like this.. He would flip on his side for about 30 seconds the swim around like nothing had happened. So i did the salt bath, and the fasting for 24 hours nothing.. He would continue to do this, So I just peg...
