  1. Breeding Betta Fish
    Hi y’all. Since the beginning of the year (summer vacation probably) I have been thinking about breeding bettas. I know that the journey will be long and hard. And I just know that my handsome little Fernando will make an excellent dad. But I created this post to ask my questions. So here is...
  2. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    This is Poppy. I got her in May and she had a deep blueish purple colour. She’s always been healthy and we maintain her tank and feed her once daily, sometimes twice. She commonly lays eggs however the other night she laid almost 100 and lost most of her colour. Her colour has been getting...

    Thee is suddenly a sort of like…separation on her nose; or a white slash…or something. It’s so hard to tell. I have NO idea what this is. I took her out of her tank so I could get a closer look. This is def not her mouth open although I know it looks that way. We’ve had her for a year and just...
  4. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi everyone, I’ve tried to post elsewhere but wasn’t much help. two things, first is the white spot on his belly, it has been there for a while now, and secondly in the last 2 days he has developed a black patch on top of his head, are these things something serious or normal? He has had it...
  5. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My co-worker got a beta for the office and basically didn’t care for it. The water got pretty gross and when he wouldn’t do anything I just ended up adopting the poor thing. It’s been a little less than a month. I’ve given it new filters, changed the water, and gotten some water treatments as...

    hello, I joined in order to get some advice. We have a male black orchid betta who has a white patch on his head. It's been about a week (i think) since we noticed it. At first we thought it was ick but treatment did nothing. He still eats, makes lots of bubbles as usual and greets me when he...
  7. Betta Fish Care
    Hello everyone! I just got a new Betta fish yesterday and I feel like he is acting strange. I am not sure if he is just a very active betta or if something is wrong with my tank. I cycled the tank and did a water change before getting my fish, I’ve tested the tank countless times and everything...

    Hello! I am the proud parent of a plum colored Betta named Bartholomew. Recently, I noticed a change in his coloring near his face. Should I be concerned? I am rather new to caring for a fish and any information would be helpful! Many thanks, Molly Also, I tend to feed Barth 4-5 pellets twice...
  9. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, 2 weeks ago I got my first betta fish. He is a dual colored halfmoon if I am not mistaken. Recently I have noticed that his tail fin has started turning translucent. Since he is the first fish that I have owned I don't know if it might be fin rot or is just something that could happen to...

    I don't now when this got here, I swear it wasn't there yesterday. Google makes it sound like something horrible but that's always the case. If it's a tumor, how did it grow so fast overnight? Is there anything I can do?
  12. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi to all, My Blue Half Moon Betta seems to have grown a sizable tumor like bump that I am not sure what to do about, or if there is any thing that can be done. Other than the unusual bump, no loss of appetite or erratic behavior observed. Any thoughts?
  13. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi All, this is my first post as I am relatively new to betta keeping. Yesterday I noticed a raised lump on my fish's side. I don't know if this has to do with what the problem is or if it is just how he looks, but where it is raised, the scales are showing white underneath. I am certain that he...
  14. Betta Fish Care
    Hello everyone! I just received a betta (Baby Yoda) and I was wondering about the gender of the betta and the type that she/he is? I am also curious about his health. I am pretty sure his caudal fin has some fin rot but I also notice the scales at the bottom of his head are grey. I am not...
  15. Betta Fish Care
    Hi guys, This may sound like a ridiculous concern, but I was planting a few small Sagittaria subulata sprigs in my betta's tank, and while doing so, some of the underneath substrate (a small white gravel - larger than a grain of sand, but some are about the size of a betta pellet) floated to...

    So, this is the best picture I could get for what is happening to my tank and betta recently. It's noticeable around his head and body. This algae, if that's what it is, is all over the fake tank plants and decorations. I can't seem to get rid of it, right after I 100% clean the tank, it comes...
  17. Betta Chat
    Hello, I am planning to start a planted aquarium for a betta. This will be my first betta, but also my first time keeping any kind of aquarium. Next week I am planting and starting the tank, so it will be several weeks before I actually have a fish and put one into the tank. That said, I...
  18. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    A week ago I got a new betta. After putting him in the tank, I fed him a only few flakes. The next day I noticed that he was floating at the top, and if he swam down into the water, he would just float back up. I started treating him for SBD- fasted for 4 days, and then the day before...

    Hiya guys! I'm not only new to this website but also to bettas as a whole, apart from the research I've done today. I'm very interested in getting one when the minnow I've got passes on (I'll be switching out my biorb, apparently they're a death trap!). I've owned fish for years and my current...

    So I recently bought a new Halfmoon male that had substantial fin damage, they were curled under themselves and his fins had enormous damage so I decided to try Melafix. My concern is his fins look worse, I assume that its causing the dead material to fall off (his bowl gets very dirty very...
