    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...

    So my betta fish has been so active and willing to eat ever since I got him about 6 months ago, and that hasn’t changed, but lately he’s been having some problems. For one thing, he has what looks to be fin rot. I tried betta fix for a few days to treat that, but then I ran out and anyway I’ve...

I did a half change and took all of the pointy objects out of his tank, Tomorrow I will do a full change and fully clean his tank under conditioned water. Than I plan to do half changes everyday until he gets better. Any...

    My fish that I got the other day has a much darker coloration on his head than on the rest of his body, I am not sure if that is just part of his coloration or if I should be worried. Any help would be appreciated.

    Good Morning, My co-worker and I adopted Finley from Petsmart a month ago. We are new fish owners. On Wednesday before his water change we noticed he had a "growth" on his fin. The first 3 pictures were taken on Thursday and the last 4 were taken this morning. It looks like it has grown...

    Hello, I just purchased a betta from Petco today. He seemed fine in the store and was a pale grey color. He was pretty active compared to my other options so I didn't think he was sick. However, after only a couple of hours in his new tank (cycled 2.5 gallon with a filter and heater). He began...

    I've had my betta fish Blu for a couple months. He's been pretty active. I rarely see him at the bottom of the tank. However yesterday I noticed that his face was turning from a navy blue (hence the name) to a gold color. I looked online & decided to clean out his tank. I cleaned it out & put...

    I recently got a beta fish and I'm not the best owner I went to clean out my beta fishes tank (which hadn't been done in a while) and he was fine. But when we took him out of the tank and into a small cup he looked completely dead. It could have been shock because the water was a bit warmer than...

    I bought a betta fish back in May. He's all white, beautiful fins & I really really like him. He used to swim around a 1 gallon tank but then I changed him to a 3 gallon for some extra space. His tank has plastic plants, rocks, a light, and heater to keep the temp at a solid 79-80 degrees. I've...
