    Hi I got this beautiful yellow female Betta fish roughly two weeks ago. She lives alone in a filtered 5 gallon tank and is super active swimmer and responder when feeding time comes in. I noticed she has these dark orange spots on her. What do I do? Is this normal?

    I'm setting up a 5 gallon tank for my Betta (Currently in a 2.5 gallon unfiltered) I want to get him a Marina Power Filter, but the cartridges are $3 each and it seems like it'd build up pretty fast. Are there any alternatives that I could use in place of a filter cartridge?

    I found a 5.5 gallon in my garage, and I want to move my Betta into it, since he's in a cramped 2.5 gallon tank without a filter, and I think he's fin biting (Woke up today with a massive cut in one of his fins! I really hope it's just fin biting) I'm trying to decide on a heater and filter...

    Hiiii, I’m new to the Betta community, got two girls a few weeks ago! Absolutely adore them, been constantly doing research so that I can give them the best life possible!

    I have a beta named Oliver who’s had what I believe is fin rot for quite a while now and I’ve tried cleaning out the tank, water changes, primafix fungal treatment, aquarium salt, and a stone bubbler.

    My betta has a parasite and i dont know what to do. I don't have a quarantene tank and there are 2 oto's in the tank as well. I don't know which parasite it is but i suspect an anchorworm. He has also been scratching up his fins to get the parasite off i think.
