    My boyfriend discovered a tiny pin hole in his betta's fin. And yes, we know that he seems to be biting his tail, but we aren't worried about it too much. He only does it to trim so we could swim easier, his fins are very heavy, hardly even transparent at all so from what we've read and...

    Hello! So, I have had my betta, Poseidon for a few months now in a two gallon tank. I do partial water changes about once a week, unless I have a feeling like I need to do it more. So far, he has seemed to be pretty healthy. The first few days I was worried about him because he was laying at...

  9. Betta's fins are ragged and holey

    Betta Fish Care
    Hello all! For some time now I thought my betta had fin rot because the ends of his rays look crooked and thinned on the sides. Some rays even look like theyve had tiny slivers sliced so that the thin bit of fin sticks out at weird angles and is curled. Also the bit of fin in between his rays...
