The indentation spans from both of the sides over the top and he looks like he has a bump from it. His eyes appear normal and he's eating fine. He is also not showing any signs of lethargy...

    Today I noticed this discolored patch of scales on one side of my betta, what is it? I put some “Betta Fix” drops in the tank (something I got at petco) which have helped with betta illnesses ive expierienced in the past, but I have never seen something like this before. What caused it and what...

    Ive had this guy since April. His name is Mac n Cheese and when I bought him from petsmart he was advertised as a vailtail. He looked like it but after a few days his tail started to almost spread out. I thought he was stressed and nipping so I upgraded his tank and only use live plants and real...

    He’s just staying in the corner or hiding in his hide. Also his right fin is clamped to his body and is only using the right fin to swim. He’s the only one in the tank besides a few snails. The water temp is fine, also the water conditions are. Filter is working too. I have no idea what’s wrong...

  17. Betta Pictures
    Can someone please identify the gender of my fish. I think it’s a koi betta fish? But I’m also unsure if it’s male or female. If this additional information also helps indicate the gender- it was more expensive than the typical male looking ones.

    Hi, I have a 10 gallon aquarium for my fish, Willie. I have been through so many filters but they have all ended up being so loud. For example the one I have in his tank right now is the Tetra Internal Power Filter which is supposed to be very quiet but mine sounds horrible. I even cleaned out...
