    So I saw this little girl labeled as just an assorted female at Petco and bought her .. I couldn't resist. She is so tiny and cute! Do you guys think she is still a baby?

    Hello! So I got my betta as a baby back in January. For a couple months I noticed his bottom fins have been ragged. I did not think much of it but it has gotten worse.

    To put it simply, I was contacted to take in a betta fish that had spent most of his life in a mason jar and the rest of it in a tank that had not been given any maintenance other than when it was first set up. The fish was put back into his mason jar and the tank was drained to only a few...
