    I got my betta fish on the 19 of April. He’s in a ten gallon with a heater and filter. I’ve never seen him eat. I’ve tried pelletes, flakes, and freeze Dried blood worms but he hasn’t seemed the least bit interested in food. I’m worried he’s going to starve. I don’t know why he isn’t eating he...

    I don't know what is wrong with my fish! Me and my boyfriend moved him to a five gallon tank Saturday. These last three days he has been on the bottom of the tank like this. His mouth is opening and closing and his gills are doing the same. I heard those might be behaviors caused my ammonia...

    Okay a little backstory here, I purchased by betta few weeks ago and his health seems to be deteriorating. I tried introducing some tank mates to his 2.3 gallon imagitarium tank but he did not get along with the snail so I had to stick to oto cats. I think one of the oto cats gave him ich as he...

    I got my betta a month ago. Marino recently had fin rot which I cured with freshwater aquarium salt. He has improved a lot and I have slowly started taking the salt out of the tank. He has 10 gallon tank to himself. I sanded his rock decorations before putting them in and all the fake plants are...

    I recently put my betta Merik in a 5 gallon fluval spec aquarium. It’s great, he loves it- I’ve read a million reviews on how this tank is great for bettas. I also read reviews from people talking about how their bettas love to suction themselves to the grate where the filter is - the setting...

    Joined because I have something odd that happened to my Female Betta. We got home from Church and found she had jumped her tank. We assumed she was dead, but when we went to pick her up, she started flipping around. We put her back immediately into a still-water vase, since the bigger tank with...
